If you're not going to shop at Camping World any longer because of this issue, then you should also consider cancelling your Good Sam membership.

Thinking about letting it all expire. Its not the cancellation of support for the Apprentice. Its the corporate message of trying to influence and manipulate that irks me. I also sent a seperate e mail asking them for a list of coproate donations. I'm betting there will be some enviromental groups that I don't see eye to eye with. But they will gladly take money from hunters who are members.

Why anyone shops at Camping World is beyond me - their prices are ridiculus. Went through the catalog last night, its now in the recycle.

I have 7 items I found cheaper in Amazon.com with free shipping. Just waiting for the right moment to go to DW with my requests. The catalogue is a good start point. If I find it cheaper I will buy it elsewhere. CW was convenient due to its one stop shopping.

Camping world is done with me and I never was a member of Good Sam.
I never really was impressed with CW or their goods....

In all seriousness, I have been surprised that more times than not, with all my purchases, I have found what I needed outside of Good Sam and Camping World. I have only been RVing for a few months now and when we bought our first RV, we purchased the Good Sam Membership for Roadside Assistance as well as the RV extended warranty.

After getting smarter I find that my insurance provides Roadside Assistance, the Good Sam Discounts are not competitive at least with my most recent purchases and 9 times out of ten, small items are bought outside of Camping World. Lastly the extended Warranty could have been purchased from several other outfits.

All up, I'm not seeing the value so when my warranty ends and my Roadside Assistance plan ends, I have a decision to make.

Regards to All..

I am not a customer of CW or GS, and it has nothing to do with the Trumps, or hunting.

Its all about value for me, most bang for the old buck.

I don't like The Apprentice nor do I care for the fading stars that pimp themselves on the show to try and regain their days gone by.
Why so many folks get their panties in a twist over Camping World and Good Sam is beyond me. They need us and we can sure use them if nothing more than comparing prices and giving their competition a price target. Camping World/Good Sam does alot of good for the RV experience wether it is directly or indirectly benifitting each one of us.
Thats just my opinion on the subject !!!

We are for personal choice and having people enjoy the outdoors in whatever fashion they choose. However, in our opinion, if and when the hunting of endangered species occurs, whether in the United States or abroad, it is not acceptable to even the most avid of hunters. We remain strong in our conviction of preserving the outdoors, protecting our great country's lands and the freedom to choose.


Sincerely,
Camping World Customer Care"..................................
I for one, it seems, commend Camping World for taking a stand if an endangered species was involved. If you donít like Camping World or their pricing donít buy from them but too use a stand on endangered species as a reason is ridiculous. Camping World is not against hunting.

I was more surprised that Camping World withdraw its advertising money from the show because Donald Trumpís son went on a safari to Africa? If I understand it, there were huge fees paid for permits to hunt a non-endangered animal. Fees, which are used in the conservation of other at risk animals. What do you say to all the hunters that are your customers, or better yet what do we say to Camping World?
I do not believe CW would have made this move for a non-endangered animal. I do not watch this show but because the Trumps can afford to pay the huge fees does not give them the right to hunt these animals.

What they hunted was perfectly legal so let's not try to turn this into something it is not.

Absolutely.

Google Trump's Sons Safari you'll see the hits are largely about PETA going headline hunting.

The sons were on legal, government-sanctioned hunts. The meat was donated to local villagers and this isn't about endangered species.

If you don't like the way the Zimbabwe government establishes their hunting guidelines, go become a Zimbabwe citizen and vote 'em out.

While it is certainly the right of CW's CEO to have strong opinions about any subject he pleases, he is NOT the owner of the company, and making business decisions for the stockholders based on his subjective "feelings" about, note; not the sponsored show's owner, but the RELATIVES of that owner strikes me as a sign of hideously poor business judgement.

I would tend to think that his judgement is flawed in other aspects of the business as well.

Maybe that's why I buy virtually nothing from CW, instead finding better prices and customer service at other venues.

Some of the things that are 'perfectly legal' in Africa might make your skin crawl.

Let's call it for what it is, a couple of kids wealthy enough to buy a 'license' to do just about anything they want, including shoot leopards and elephants for amusement. It's revolting, or should be.
