I've been a member just about forever. My gut feeling is that the PC prices are not always the lowest, but they are not too bad if you look for sale items plus shipping deals. Mainly I like dealing with CW because of the wide range of products and consistent service and shipping. Is the PC worth it? I think so, if you are a consistent customer.

We were members when we needed a large number of items. Weigh the membership costs with how much you need to buy. Traveling up to Detroit will save you shipping. I have recently found whatever I need on Amazon.com and can almost always get free shipping there with lower prices than CW.

For the $9 fee, it would be worth it. We have been members for a while and you won't have to buy too much to recoup that. Best if you can get to their actual store to save on the shipping. That's where they really get you.

I have found their prices to be VERY high, even with the "Club" price.

Example: A Curt 2" receiver for a TT bumper $79.00, the same product available at E-trailer for $63.00.

Here is a weird thing, I got a letter from them today. I get a Presidents Club membership for 12 bucks, and two free sport watches. I signed up today and should be able to use it before the sale ends sunday.

It is worth it so far for us. I don't buy a lot there but enough to pay for the PC dues. We have only been doing the RV thing for a little over a year so we obviously haven't purchased every gizzmo or gadget we need. We are fortunate in that we have a CW fairly close by. Yes, you can generally find it cheaper on the internet, but if you need it and they are close by you don't have to wait for the item to be shipped.

My parents are a camping world member and when I go to purchase stuff I just give them my parents phone # and I get the same deal they do - If you buy a bunch of stuff it is worth it over the long run
