RV Timeshare Comments

We received a call from Coast to Coast a few years ago. At first we were hesitant to go to their site in southern Louisiana, but were promised that they were just getting started and just wanted some traffic for their 90 minute presentation.

Everything went well until Sunday morning when we had our scheduled presentation. Ours was early so we could go to church after. Not sure what their problem was but they imposed greatly on us, keeping us for 4 hours and calling in high pressure sales people to talk to us. Finally got through my not wanting to cause a scene and just left.

Will not go back. Would not recommend them to anyone. I would recommend anyone that does take up their offer to research before you go and be sure you are in the market for a timeshare.

Like SlowJoe we had an extreme high pressure sales pitch that went on and on. Their resorts were not in places we go to and the membership price was in the thousands of dollars. Says were limited and many of their campgrounds were full. And why would an RV'er want a timeshare?

If you are on a Camping World or Good Sam list ie: email, phone number, address, one of their CC... then you will get bombed every week with something else, a discount on a renewal of your membership that isn't up for renewal for a few years, time share opportunities, camping memberships where you stay almost free... if it's in their campground, and usually you select which zone and pay to travel outside.
Now I know where my Good Sam fees go.

When we were younger and didn’t have much extra money we went on a lot of “come for a free weekend and listen to our great offer” trips. Took whatever was the freebie of the month, listened to part of sales pitch and answered every sales pitch to buy with “WE ARE HERE FOR THE FREEBIEE. NOT BUYING ANYTHING” never had to stay over 45 min.
Yall have fun.

Camping World has folks in their stores collecting names and phone numbers with a promise of a free camping trip. Nothing in life is free... prepare to get many phone calls after you sign up. RV show are another place where they allow you to enter into a drawing to win whatever in exchange for your #. Personally we use our answering machine to screen our calls and never answer a call from a unknown number. Bass Pro Shops also sells high pressure time shares with promises of a free cruise and this is presented as a free weekend in Vegas. These time shares include very high yearly maintenance fees. My daughter learned the hard way.....

I've solved most of my Telemarking Call issues.

When I am asked for a phone number I merely give them the land line number which I had disconnected last year. I now just use my Cell Phone number for all those I deal with that are important like Bank, Insurance Company, Doctor's Office, Family, etc.

Unless I WANT someone to call me, they get the old number.

I still get a few Robo-Calls coming through on my cell phone but my phone has a neat blocking feature. Get a robo call (no doubt with a spoofed number for CID) I just add it to the blocked list. I've gone from 5 or 6 calls per day to maybe 2-3 per week.

If I get a call from a real person that gets pushy I just give them an earful of what you might hear from a tug boat crew or longshoreman. Never get a repeat call from them.

Keeping you against your will is called false imprisonment.
