[Resolved] Outdoor Adventures / fast talking, high pressure sales tatics!

50538 Manhatten Dr, Elkhart, IL, United States Review updated:

Just another person complaining
That we too were victims of their camping scam. We fell for it hook, line and sinker!
We got called that we won a sweepstakes chance at winning a 20, 000 pick up truck. Come to campground, get key, try your luck!
But first. You need to take a tour of our beautiful campground and listen to a 10 minute talk on the campground!
10 mins and 5 hours later, after constantly standing our ground that we can't afford this terrific deal at this time.
After offering this great deal at 12, 000 and we said no he said he would be right back. He needed to check on something, comes back said hey, I just found out we are trying to sell someone's share because they couldn't use it anymore, (which we will do for you too if you take this offer). We can take over his timeshare and payments but would put his bal on their timeshare credit card with 0% int for 6 months then after one year you can have our company change it into a loan at 6%, (but you'd be better off going to your bank for most likely 4%) loan. Push comes to shove offers it at 7, 995.00.. $492.00 a year maintenance fees which you will be locked into!
Should have read the fine print! Which they don't totally tell you the truth they go over it verbally for you breaking it down for you so you don't have to go into it! Well, we used it once because it was Oct when we went and signed up! Following summer our camper had water damage beyond compare. So no camping last summer. Then that fall. Husband got laid off from AM General H2 plant, same month our roof collapsed, insurance turned down claim so new roof needed after it wasn't even 2 1/2 yrs old and couldn't match the shingles didn't carry them anymore. Following month furnace broke down couldn't be repaired. So roof loan, furnace loan, already had car loan. One credit card which is outdoor adventure. Called in springs told them what happened to us and can't use campground because we no longer own a camper and with everything that's happened can't afford even a used on at this time. I then said we bought someone's timeshare they couldn't use anymore and that salesman told us your company could do the same for us if we found out that we coyldnt use it or afford it anymore. She told me that our contract states we can never ever sell our camp timeshare! Never!! I told her we bought someones from the salesman and what he guaranteed us. She said well he should never have told you this
No one can sell their timeshare if they don't spend the entire amt which is 13, 000 and even then it's not guaranteed that they will let you sell it.
So we were lied, swindled, fast talked and yes stupid because we let ourselves be talked into what we thought was a great deal, only, because he wore us down after almost 5 hours in that small room with no cell service to check on anything about the company. So shame on us. We want to join a class action law suit if anyone has started one

    I had the same thing happen to me. Talk about dishonest business and high pressure sales but you, “signed the contract” so now you have to pay dues to us forever. I’d like to join a lawsuit as well!
