Depends on what you are wanting. I buy a lot from Amazon, usually because it is not available locally. I have the Prime account with the free shipping, me and the UPS guy are on a first name basis and he brings dog biscuits for the hound.

Amazon, RV Upgrades, Tweety's, Dryers RV, all have good prices that will almost always beat Camping World, even their "sale" prices. And almost all offer free shipping, even on small items.
As an example, CW has a Maxxfan Delux with Remote Control, white, list price $456.00, on sale for $337.00.
Amazon has the exact same fan for an everyday price of $261, free shipping.
(I know as I bought 2 of them for our Lexi 2 years ago).
Always check around...you'll find some great prices out there.

If I had to guess offhand, I'd say 90% of the stuff/parts/upgrades I've done to the Lexi came from Amazon. From upgrading the faucets, outside shower, led lighting, tv mounts, on and on...Amazon.
Just find the item your looking for, even at CW, go to Amazon, it's there, cheaper.
Order it...Badda Boom, 2 days later (in most cases) it shows up on your doorstep.

Most of my stuff has come from Amazon. As of late, I've found a few things at better deals through Jet.com. I've also gotten my stuff REALLY fast through Jet even with their free shipping option....I mean like order at 3:00 and have it the next day fast.

Same as others, look for the item online and buy from the best priced.
While not the cheapest I don't mind buying from CW. If quality or fit is questionable I feel it's best to get the items in hand. Sometimes I want something now, a couple of bucks won't matter.

Same as others have said, just Google what you want and you will be surprised at the money you can save. I beat Amazon price most of the time, I get free shipping and no tax, Amazon charges tax on whatever you buy from them. You will be surprised at the RV stuff you can buy at Walmart. I just Google what I want and when I find what I want and then I look at Amazon reviews and buy from someone else, Amazon usually has great reviews but they are not always the cheapest

What I like about Amazon is the large number of choices you have for same type parts, the little stuff we all use.
I use the plastic valve stem caps rather than the metal ones as I've had the little o-ring seals come loose.
Walk into any auto parts store and you'll pay up to 2 bucks for a pack of 4.
Amazon has a huge # of choices, and I bought a pack of 40, for $4.19, with free shipping. CW would charge you the 2 bucks for 4, and twice that for shipping.
LED lights you see in the rv catalogs...just get the manufacturer, part#, and Amazon will probably have it.
CW has a Progressive Dynamics 70 amp converter "on sale" for $299.99.
Amazon has the same unit for $208.99, with free shipping. That $90 bucks you just saved will almost fill your rigs gas tank up. I'm getting ready to buy a 60 amp unit to upgrade my Lexi, it's $173.00, almost $100 bucks cheaper than CW.
In this age of "finger walking and buying" you'd have to be nuts not to shop around.
