Camping World Sucks!

Our opinion is that Camping World sucks. Many seem to share that opinion. Reviewers rarely praise the company. Ergo, CampingWorldSucks.net was born.

This is not a fancy website. The goal here is not to sell products or ads. The purpose of this site is to warn consumers. Also, hopefully, the company will get a clue and change.

I’ve read many reviews and found very few positive experiences if any. RV enthusiasts new to the company need to be warned. Those with experience probably need to vent. This is a place to share the Camping World consumer experience. 

After dealing with Camping World personally, we came to the conclusion that Camping World sucks. Our own experiences prompted this blog. Subsequently, our story fills the first few posts.

  • First is our sales experience in Monticello, Minnesota.
  • Second, our refund experience with Meridian, Idaho.
  • Third, our warranty inspection fiasco in Bartow, Florida.
  • I’ve also included one experience of a friend.

Location doesn’t seem to matter. Integrity and honesty are obviously not the company standard.

The BBB

I’ve read consumer reports, including many Better Business Bureau (BBB) complaints. The BBB website gives them a one-star rating. What the BBB deems a response is a joke. For instance, Camping World repeatedly responds that they reached out to the customer (they tried) without response. That seems to be their scripted reply.

After this lame response, the BBB marks the complaint as answered. Furthermore, when the company takes any action, the BBB reports the complaint resolved.

Consequently, complaint after complaint is marked resolved. However, additional customer responses show the issues as unresolved.

The BBB rates Camping World with one star and no letter grade.

Additionally, the BBB fails to rate the company with a letter grade. Find out for yourself. Do your own research on the BBB website. In addition to the BBB, check out PissedConsumer.com. They give Camping World two stars.

An Attempt for Change

Certainly, this may be a useless effort in regards to real change in business practices. In the end, future RV consumers will be warned.

These posts are organized into two categories: “Sales” and “Repairs.” We’ll add a category if necessary. Share your Camping World experiences here.

Also, on another blog, I’ve posted our warranty repair experience with Keystone RV. Same issue, lack of integrity. It is our my opinion that Keystone and Camping World are in bed together. We experienced a team effort to rip us off.

  1. I was completely mistreated, lied to, purposefully delayed, my RV was held hostage for 20+ days while I was forced into a hotel. Then they tried to use my RV to force me to sign paperwork. Later when all that didn’t work – they called two police departments (Bernalillo County Sheriffs in New Mexico and then the New Mexico State Police) trying to get them to force me to sign the paperwork or get arrested. Fat chance but I would rather be arrested. #CrampingWhirl is run by a bunch of con artists that whine like babies when called out on it.

  2. I’m Tena Mullinax. I brought a Travel Trailer from Camping World in North Little Rock, AR. I didn’t like the dealership. I had never bought a RV, but I’m disabled, on a limited income and the was the only way I could afford to live without assistance. I made my purchase on October 16, 2019. Camping World had made eighteen repairs to my trailer before they sold it to me as new. I resolved my problem with CW, although I’m not through with them. I requested Forest River Inc., the company that assembled my trailer, to replace it.

    I need help in creating a website that I can share the things I’ve learned over the past five months. I also need people to understand how this industry works. The final word doesn’t belong to just Camping World, the companies that are assembling the RV as manufacturers, are not! Those warranties by the assemblies cover very little of the RV you purchased. The materials come out of China. The cabinets, the walls, the doors, everything! They simply put it all together!

    There are no laws to regulate the dealerships or the assemblies. So, they can do anything they want to, to each and everyone of us, unless we let them all know that, “This is no longer, ok!” We have to hit both. We can’t get one to do something the other isn’t willing to do! Did you know that Forest River has so many RVS under other assemblies names. They do. They’re owned by Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Yes, Warren Buffet!

    CW owned Good Sam’s. That’s why they want you to purchase the service warranty. They turn around and get your agreement with a underwriter. They changed underwriters since November 2019. They were with a company that insured cellphones, dish washers and wide area of miscellaneous stuff but obviously didn’t specialize in RV’S!

    Please tell me, “What can I do to give all of us a voice to change this injustice?” A website, a page on your page, something! I’m desperate.
