Hi, I consider Camping World a place of opportunity. If the item that I want is on sale, at a good price, I will buy it from them. Usually, they are over priced and people will buy from them just because, at the time, they are a captive audience. So the opportunity works both ways. I also stopped being a member a few years back. I still like to window shop, but go on line before I buy anything. In the stores, I can see if it is well made, junk, or if it won't work for me; Then I can decide if I really want it or not before shopping on line. I can't see, feel, touch, or taste anything on line.

What is the name of your La Habra RV store?

Can you tell me the name of the RV supply store in La Habra? Thanks, paula

Between Harbor Freight, Wally Word , Amazon and Ebay you can almost find anything
that CW has and usually at much lower prices. From the first time I walked into a
CW I felt like they were trying to shake me down.

I just got a blow out hose for $8.95 at CW. llast year I asked them about solar pwd. party lites, the sales guy was shocked there was such a thing. I found them online for $11.00 approx.. CW has them this year for $20+. just one case in point. a struggling new RV owner has to research all options! the new CW is so convenient here in Roanoke,VA. But I always wonder why everytime I pass there, or go there, there's hundreds of SOB's (you can hardly work your way thru the parking lot) and never any Airstreams...(-:<

Thumbs down Don't buy Camping World "brand"

I pretty much agree with the jist of this thread. I bought a CW tire gauge for
$ 19.95 on sale. It would not hold the pressure reading, and I took it in to CW and they informed me it had a 90 day warranty. Yep, it was made in China with the CW brand on it. Same unit in USA $ 4.00 more and carries lifetime warranty. No more CW Crap for me.
