I actually took advantage of their $39 install @ the Fort Worth, Tx store for some items on our tow vehicle and they were done fine - not an issue out of them !

My wife is an all or nothing person too

Yup, and before he took over CW they were great. Their only competition was the small mom and pop RV stores. Many of the CW stores actually had free camping with hook ups available. That was back in the 80s. Marcus Lemonis is taking good care of his investors not so much the RV customers. Read some of the complaints on RV net. There is no way I would let them touch my RV.

Where did you have poor service?

I have had great service from this Camping World.
http://m.campingworld.com/stores/nj/swedesboro/36/

Have not had service at others.

Ft Worth has been touted as good on this thread. Why dont we post where all the good ones are?

I am not defending CW as a whole, but know there are good stores.

Just like any other repair shop you have good and bad stories, I normally don't use CW either, they are 40 miles from here...

We did the other day run up there (Wilsonville OR) for chassis batteries. Didn't have a confirmed appointment...while this is usually bad when they say "we will work you in"...generally takes all day, to our surprise we were there less than and hour....

So in this case....good job...

If you have had BAD service anywhere, at least say which one. And then tell Marcus.
Sheesh!
I did! Was the hassle worth it....NO WAY! It cost CW $1,800 in body and paint work for the botched job they did in installing a new Winegard Traveler. They "really" thought I was going to accept this on a $200,000 MH. It was the Ft. Myers Fl store and Marcus did have to get involved. This IS the quality of work CW puts out and I am living proof!!! If you would like more photos, let me know.

The mess in front of the air horn is where the drilled the first hole trying to find the entertainment center and that is how they were going to leave it. The second photo is the glob of Dicor visible from the street. Real quality work.....not!!!!!

We stop at Camping World locations for items occasionally when traveling. Never for their actual service.

I would enjoy watching the trucks race more if NASCAR guys like Kyle Busch would stay away. Appears he likes to be a big fish in a small pond.

I don't have to run a stop sign to realize it is not a good idea. I don't have to have my rv damaged to realize It wasn't a good idea going to CW. I realize there probably is a few really good CW stores and service. However, Marcus is the problem not the solution. I let others experience the problems and learn from it. Marcus may be a good PR guy but his priorty is investors not RVers. Marcus has destroyed CW and close to bankruptsy closed deal on GS club. Now GS is going down fast. GS profits is carrying CW. Just read the posts on RV net. ERS is now going bad. When I renew it will be with coach net. Look at CW web site. Antiquated. Marcus is pulling out profits for investors and not putting anything back in. If you want to take your RV to CW for repair or buy from them it is your $$$$. I will be reading about you in future posts. JMHO.

It's my (opinion) a word used from another thread, the employees cannot be RV technicians or Rv owners because they would no better. If I was brobox and I had a wire running down my roof, let's say it would not be a pretty picture.
