Camping World

Just for kicks I went online with a camping world online specialist chat person. I asked her what is included in the free 22 point inspection. Reply I don't know you will have to call. I guess I shouldn't of asked such a tough question.

I asked a question once! That did it for me. I'm sure someone in another answering service googles while one speaks!

The three local RV service shops that I have used offer a 22-28 point free inspection. It is a visual from the ground walk-around inspection. They have never noticed a thing, until I pointed something out. 2 of the 3 don’t top off any of the other fluids when they change the oil. I’d trust CW as fast I as I would one of these.

My experience at a new local cw was about like being at wally world. They knew very little about basic items listed in their mailed out flyer. For 1 I asked about awning flapper and they didn't know if they carried them. Well...

Avoid CW redding for any service requirements or repair. Charged $909 to misdiagnose and repair nothing

The whole point of the free inspection is to look for billable work...plain and simple.

You pull up and ask for an inspection and they have a list of "low hanging fruit" the easy to do things that make fast easy money along with a couple that can get you in the bay.

Your window washer fluid is low...buy a gallon here...

The wear on that tire looks odd let us take it inside and look at it.

Be carefull with them.

I had a young kid tell me that he did a 22 pt inspection and inflated my tires to 100 psi...... I told him that Michelin advises 95psi max...... I checked the pressures and they were 90PSI front and 95 on the rears just as I left them...so he really didn't do anything and the rest of the 22 pt inspection consists of nothing really! skip it is my advice. The inspection took all of 10 minutes!

Anything "free" at Camping World is worth just what you pay for it. Even what you pay for, service wise at CW is not worth the poor quality for what they charge. Just my past experience.

Other than buying items on sale or you need while on the road, CW is pretty useless IMO. I agree that Marcus has had sufficient time to get them where they need to be but I suspect they just can't find enough good techs and service people to do the job.

The only time I used our local CW for installation of a new awning, they did it wrong. The service writer proudly told me his most experienced tech did my work and even added air to my tires. When I asked him why he added air to my tires, he said the rears were lower than the front and none of them had the pressure noted on the tire (they put 120 psi in all of them). When I told him my pressures were fine and based on actual four corner weights/tire inflation tables, he just gave me blank look. I told him to have 'his most experienced tech' put the tire pressures back where he found them .

Camping World

Bash, bash, bash!
All in one basket; blanket statement; one size fits all, this one was bad therefore....

I have had great service from this Camping World.

Have not had service at others.

If you have had BAD service anywhere, at least say which one. And then tell Marcus.

This past spring, when we were in the market for a coach (our first - no trade) we went to CW – less than 3 miles from our home in Avondale, AZ. We told the salesman what we were looking for – we had already done research - we wanted a NEW Class A or a NEW Class C and told him our price range – the salesman kept saying look as this, or I want to show you this, NOT ONE met the criteria of our price range or it was a used trade in or a previous rental unit – My wife was P%$ed – we did not even get out of the golf cart. On the other hand, La Mesa in Phoenix showed us a number of units that met our criteria, and also showed us units UNDER our price range. The salesman we had was good - no high pressure - just the facts. (After checking out some other dealers - Guess where we bought our NEW Class A?) I go over to the local CW store now and then and get some sale items, but as far as their RV sales staff – they have A LOT to learn. Show the customer what they ASK for – if you don’t have it say you’ll look for it (and do it) – there are enough CW locations that have RV stock!
