Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

PPL has always shipped promptly and at a reasonable price. Out of Door Mart is good, but it seems their shipping is a little high compared to others. I recently had good experience with price and prompt shipping from Vintage Trailer Supply. Amazon is good, but as others have said, one usually deals with smaller vendors.

I guess unless you use Amazon Prime your stuff is shipped by Pony Express. Out of Doors Mart is fair with shipping charges as long as you tell them to ship the most economical way. Plus they don't waste any time shipping. But anything CW has is cheaper on ebay or Amazon. Also agree on PPL. Sal

We have mainly used Amazon with prime, and I've had good luck. I have used Camping World twice and was pretty mad about them, had to cancel the first order. (Like you lied about inventory) I used their review and feedback system to let them know that it's beyond absurd in 2015 to be paying such high shipping fees and having shipping times of 10-15 business days before an order is processed. That's ridiculous.

But believe it or not, after searching 4 different vendors, they had the best deal on my vent covers when they were doing an internet sale. And they were in stock.

I understand that the RV world is used to older clientele, but a lot of these brands are surely going to miss out on the next generation when all the boomers pass along in the next decade.

Also, I'm not buying anything from someone that wants me to call to order. It's 2015, I'm 31 and have two kids under two, a business and a job. I don't have time for that crap. I want to point, click and get it done in under 15 mins and have it show up within a week or at least be shipped within 1-3 business days. 10-15 business days to ship an order, come on Camping World!!

Of course, being someone who works in web, I'm sure there is some high up who thinks he knows better about the internet than his advisors.

I have not used RV Parts, RV Accessories RV Supplies Priced Low yet, but they have a really good Google Shopping score. Might be worth looking into.

Getting off my soap box.

Camping World ???

Ordered a high volume water pressure regulator from CW yesterday and this morning got an email saying it will be 30 days before they can ship it.

I've been renovating a 72 Overlander and have used Amazon, Vintage Trailer Supply and OODM. All great to deal with.

Oddly I've had really good luck with CW, but I buy 90% of the stuff if I catch it on sale. And I generally get everything delivered promptly. (Their catalog gives you a lot of ideas about how to waste money too!) Their brick and mortar stores are stocked well too.

BUT Shipping Cost? I keep getting HUGE boxes that are 1/2 to 1/3 full with air pouches or peanuts to fill the balance. UPS & FED-X both charge by dimensions & weight so big boxes that weigh 3 lbs. get charged like they weigh 25 lbs. That's why the high shipping charges - idiots in the shipping dept.
Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

During my renovation work I have primarily used Amazon and VTS. Prime shipping is free on many items.
