I've had problems with Amazon shipping in the past. Depends on what you order, and what your address is, and which carrier is used.

However, when it happened, I just sucked it up and went on my way as it's no big deal, can happen anywhere.

I've learned not to whine about inconsequential things, or let them occupy my mind for over a couple of minutes. maybe that's why I've gotten the nickname "Easy Ed"!

Here's my theory . . .

In the Land of the Politically Correct, expressing opinions on many subjects is a big NO NO !!!

So, with all that pent up need to say what you think, which is really okay in a free society, like even established as a right by, oh say a constitution or citizens rights thing, Camping World, if ever mentioned in any post, is gonna get bashed. It is just there to relieve some of that pent up need.

Politics? NO NO
Religion? NO NO
Guns? NO NO
<you fill in the blank here>? NO NO

NO NO !!!

Camping World? whine away!

It really serves a meaningful purpose.

Just my perspective . . . your results may vary.

My apologies to the moderators - I know, way over the top in the Land of PC. This will probably need to be toasted.

I have had good experiences buying store items, Ok experiences with camper sales, very mixed experiences with service. Depending on work requested vs their mechanics experience seemed to drive whether I had a reasonable service experience. However, I will say they stay very busy,even with their high service rates $/hr. Sometimes they have the resources to take care of the work and you either choose to pay them or drive somewhere else and you may have same experience.one thing I have noticed about more than one RV service dept, they don't return my calls and emails,I find this a bit troubling. I am glad to read that some folks have found more customer related RV support.regardless, I try to be kind and appreciative of their efforts, realizing, I will need their help as long as I choose to RV.

I placed the order and noticed I was about .40 short of free shipping, because any order over $99.00 is free. Here's the ad....

Camping World Coupons
Free Shipping On Orders Of $99+
For Good Sam Club members.

So I reorder and add a nice blanket for my Mom that my DW loves. That takes the order over $99.00. Went to checkout and they still wanted the shipping. I call their Toll Free number and explain the situation to the Call Center agent. She explains that it does not cover large items. I politely explained that their ad said free shipping over $99.00 and there was nothing else indicating stipulations. She hung up on me! I called back and asked for a Manager just because I will follow up on who hung up on me. I explained the situation to the Mgr and he told me the same thing she told me. I hang up, get back online to order a gift card for $100. There is a Camping World 10 miles from where my Folks live. I go to check out and CW wants $1.50 shipping!!!!!! I call CW and they said yes, we charge shipping for gift cards. I don't get it!
I guess I'll buy them a fruit cake!!
Not surprised. CW has got to be in trouble I never hear much good about them

Same here, more than just one store, too, and over maybe about 8 or 9 years. Sometimes I think being friendly and respectful begets friendly and respectful.

I visited CW last October during one of their promotional sales. I was given a $10 merchandise certificate when I checked out, as part of their promotion. The certificate was about to expire, so I ordered a few items last week on their website, intending to use the certificate to help pay for the items. I could not figure out how to enter the certificate, so I called CW customer service. Here’s what they told me I have to do, in order to use the certificate with an online purchase: Place my online order, and print out a copy of my order invoice. Put the invoice copy along with the merchandise certificate in an envelope and mail it to Bowling Green KY. They will then credit my credit card account the $10 in 3-4 weeks. Could they make it any more difficult?

Like others have said, Amazon gets most of my business now.

Thumbs down Just Disapointed. Long read Sorry

I read almost daily that someone is going to stop going to CW for what ever reason. I just told myself that I have been lucky. Until today.
Our PA sprug a pin hole leak in the Radiator the other day and was thinking of adding a Stop leak type product and after reading several posts I decided not to do it. So I have decided to go new. I called CW and talked to a guy in service too see if he would just give me a ball park estimate to replace it.
He said nope we don't work on Radiators AHHH What, yep he said take it somewhere to get it re-cord, or buy a new one. Can you refer me to someone. Yea the truck stop back at the corner. I said what would happen if I was on the road and had this happen, Sorry.
In the end we lucked out. The shop "Andover Wheel & Frame" we usually go to for repairs/improvements had told me 2 years ago that they won't do radiator flushes, so I presumed that they didn't work on Radiator's. Wrong, we called them this afternoon and they told us sure bring her in when I get a New radiator. He said they will do it if I get the radiator, I said no problem and estimated it at $400.00 bucks to take out and install the New One. I have found a few places that have one or two or three. Rock Auto gota love um!!! they have like 4 different types ranging from $140.00 up too $500.00 buckaroo's. AZ has one for around $375.00
We just might still make it to Quartszite this winter. Might be March but we are going to go one way or another...

Great Place, I would refer them to anyone, Thanks for your time. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,

Never had an issue with CW....love checking out the catalogue.....but I also check out Amazon when I do see something I need....and often its cheaper to get the item from amazon. If the amazon item costs less than $25 for the free shipping I'll add it to the shopping cart and bundle it in a few weeks with other items. But I do love roaming around CW.

Amazon has 2 styles of RV outdoor rocking chairs. About $54 and free shipping. Aluminum and canvas material. Mine are blue canvas and fold up. Nice. Got mine at a RV dealer for about the same price, not CW.

They are what they are. Have what they have. Do what they do. In my experience, they don't have a problem telling you they can't do something. Wish I could say the same for some other service places that claim they can do something to get ya in the door and then set about learning how and what to do for weeks on end. When I have used them I always seem to get what I bargained for. I was surprised that the one closest to me was unable to locate G670's in 275/70R/22.5's with date codes < a year old. They were replacing my slide toppers and had my coach on their lot. I have seen them replacing tires - so it wasn't a matter of can't do it. It was a matter of can't get them and GY told whoever they were getting them from that they are on back order. No problem - hello FMCA - let's get this show on the road. as for the slide toppers - they were running an installation sale - $29.95 / install. Hard to beat that.
Just my 2¢.
