Camping world serves a good purpose and wager to guess that they have helped a lot of people with their RV's when there was no one else to help.
Being a wrencher myself, I was able to do all the install for my towing set up and saved a considerable amount of money doing so. CW quoted near 4k to get the Jeep hooked the the Dolphin. I did it in my driveway for under $1400 in parts. My labor cost me a cold beer or two.
For parts an accessories I find them to be a bit on thepricey side even with the presidents club discount. I am always able to do better with a little shopping on the internet.

I just did a full install on a new Ford Explorer. Thankfully my local Ford dealer gave me the wiring diagrams for the lights. The hardest part was soldering up under the dash and figururing the best route for wires and air hose into the car. I installed Roadmaster brackets and Air Force One brake controller.

I had CW replace an air conditioner last year. I thought the $150 or so was very reasonable. They did forget to set the dip switches for my heating system, but all else went well.

Best of luck,

Gil

I can do carpentry , install TV's , plumbing but when it come to pulling 3000lbs of metal behind me I am letting the techs do it. I can see it now as my toad breaks free and the brakes not working and my toad ends up in a lake. Lol
