LazyDays or other: Who has best service in Tampa/Sarasota/Venice area?

My father who lives in that area is ready to buy an RV. He's looking for something in the class B/B+ size more than likely.

Since pretty much any brand he buys will have some issues, I'm trying to see if anyone in that area stands above the others in terms of service, warranty and after warranty.

For instance, how is Coachhouse for warranty work? Can you do it right at the factory?

Any suggestions for a good dealer, from standpoint of service, in that part of Florida would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not a huge fan of Lazydays but lots of people like them. Honestly, I was really impressed with General RV. Their salespeople are really knowledgeable and friendly. Didn't get that feeling at Lazydays.

A word of caution to stay away from Camping World in Dover for both purchase and service. This is from personal experience.

I second this recommendation. I purchased from a different CW and went to the Tampa location for service. There are not enough words i can type to explain how bad my experience was. Do yourself a favor and stay away from CW!!

You might give Campbells RV in Sarasota a try.

Not speaking from experience but I have only heard positive comments from friends about Campbells services. They have always been helpful for parts I may need.

Donít use General RV. Their service dept. is a joke. Had to have everything repaired twice. Most problems are still not fixed. I called the manufacturer and they sent me somewhere else.
