Camping World / I will never visit camping world for servicing or installation again

1 United States Review updated:

My vacation was scheduled for july 1.2006. I initiated the replacement of my broken down refrigerator one month in advance to ensure it would be completed in time. I contacted camping world to purchase the new refrigerator and schedule the installation. I purchased the new refrigerator and was informed that there was a three week wait for the scheduled replacement and that my date was june 24. 2006.

I brought my camper in and dropped it off on june 21st, we discussed in detail the mechanics of replacing the refrigerator. The fact that the size of the unit 24' wide and the size of the door 22' wide required the removal of the door frame to get the job done and an installation charge of up to $300.00 may apply. I agreed and instructed them to get the job done regardless of cost.

I received a message on june 24.2006 at 10:00 am that after 2.0 hours of working on it that it was physically impossible to replace the unit due to size incompatibilities. I contacted the camper manufacturers and asked them what was the necessary steps to getting the unit replaced.

I called camping world monday morning and discussed the installation with the service department. I told them what lance had said about getting the unit installed. It was agreed on that camping world would initiate and complete the install by thursday the 28th and that they would keep me updated on any problems.

I called them the morning of the 28th to see if the job was complete only to find out they never started the job and that they were informing me that they would not be able to help me. I am now leaving on my two week vacation with no refrigerator in my camper.

This is my second experience with camping worlds service department. My first experience was no better than this one. I will never visit camping world for servicing or installation again.

    I purchased a 2007 Winnebago Journey 36 SG from CampingWorld (>$130k purchase). Horrible customer service at service area. Only had possession of the unit 2 of the 9 months since purchase. Have contacted an attorney

    The worst service there is, after 2.5 months of waiting for warranty / recall work I receive email my rv will be ready 4/16/18 an I cannot talk to anyone that knows anything about it. Concord & Myrtle Beach locations are the worst. New management or owners needed real bad...

    Camping World - RV repair
    Wauconda Illinois
    United States

    Made several attempts via email and phone about TV having a blacked out spot in the screen. Still waiting for the replacement.

    Took RV in for an awning repair and they damaged my new RV. Although I waited 6 hours for the repair, I was left with a hole "hacked" into the wall of my " brand new" RV.

    Camping World - selling used toilets. Wow!
    United States

    Called to see if they had a certain portable toilet. They did. We went to pick it up only to find out they were trying to pass off a disgusting used toilet as a new one. Yeah, i won't be back.

    Camping World Calera Alabama - Motor home
    Spice pine
    United States

    4 WEEKS to repair 3 simple problems and charged $375. Also destroyed my satelite system while in shop and said in said condition when received. A lie and their service writer did not note any damage upon arrival. LIARS AND CROOKS. Do not go to C.W. Calera Alabama.

    Ft. Myers Camping World the worst. in the 9 months we have owner the unit that we bought brand new, we have only been able to use 1 time, which turned out to be a nightmare trip and it was sitting in service a total of 4 months. Gabriela in service out right lied about repairs and had us pick up unit when repairs still were not done after 3 months. Terrible. Do not buy from Camping World, our biggest mistake ever. Sad part is we are hearing nightmares from so many other disappointed customers. Wish we would have known prior to our purchase!

    As a camper and current customer I will no longer be doing business with Camping World. The public has been told by Marcus Lemonis that certain people are not welcome in his establishments. What a stupid business move. I will also be spreading the word as fast as possible to as many people as possible. I have called for a boycott of Camping World.

    United States
    campingworld.com

    I placed an online order on 6/18 As if 6/26 still pending shipping. When I called stated would be shipped 7/3 and should reccieve by 7/10. 22 days is pathetic. when calling their phone center the person was very non caring and basically said it was too bad because thats the way it is.
    Dont bother their are plenty of better online RV retailers .

    This company is the worst business I have had to deal with in over 40 years of buying vehicles!! Everyone I had to deal with was incompetent. Will never recommend. Don't buy anything from this company. Everyone I spoke to gave me the run around. The won't even answer the phone or call you back. Customer service is just as bad!!

    I was going to complain about camping world bending over backwards to sell you a camper but frustrating you during any warranty repair but heck they are only 1 star rated out of all the comments. I wish I would have seen all the bad reviews before I purchased from them. BEWARE STAY FAR AWAY FROM CAMPING WORLD. Joe Fitzgerald Omaha Nebraska.

    Camping World Tucson, AZ - Tires have bulges in the side wall
    Tucson
    Arizona
    United States
    CampingWorld.com

    I bought a 2015 Jayco Pinnacle from Camping World in Tucson, Az. After about 5000 miles on the 5th wheel I noticed that bulging on the side wall on two of the tires. Each time I called Camping World Tucson to find out what I should do, the operator sends me to a voice mail. Each time I leave a message, no one calls back. This is not service.
