In addition, here is what they attempted or are attempting to do in regards to the RV aftermarket parts industry.

None of it looks very good for the end user.

Well I doubt I'd invest in them as I would also never buy from them. When they started buying out all the RV dealers parts stores prices went up. Campers Inn is becoming just like CW and I will no longer buy from those folks either. Lter RJD

I get my Cedar Creek worked on at C/W, the people at Fayetteville NC store are good people, I have known them before C/W brought them out. In today's business debt is good, not so good with me. With the money they make by going public think of all the other stores they can buy out. The next step will be campgrounds. They already have fuel stations and finance campers. All they have to do is make there stores bigger to include campgrounds. Just like Walmart, get rid of the competition

I would think that Camping World is the Walmart of RVing. I
wonder what % of the company will be the ISO?
