Media Camping, Media, PA

I saw a For Sale sign in front of Media Camping yesterday. It looks like the property is for sale.

I have heard rumors from others in the RV business that another dealer would buy them out. The sale sign indicates otherwise.

It was just a matter of time.
Hope the new owners take heed.

Nope; just changed the name everytime their rep caught up with them.

And I thought I was the only one with problems from Media. They are the worst people I ever did business with.

Just to clarify, this is the location in Delaware County, PA. On Baltimore Pike, US RT. 1.

It is not the one in Hatfield or anywhere else.

I believe it had the same name since at least the 1960‘s and the same ownership. They have not offered new units in recent years. The business looks like a junk yard but they have a reputation for quality work at reasonable prices.

There are many shady dealers in the close to Baltimore region. Of course there are good dealers there as well. Lost a refundable deposit on a new unit due to lies they gave after they fired my salesperson. Bank Investigators said my only recourse was to take the dealer to court. Many have consolidated and have changed names, but the people remain the same.

That was the reason for my clarification. The one with the sale sign is the original location in Media Pennsylvania, hence the name, Media Camping. I think they were all owned by members of the same family at one time.

I am guessing that a developer will buy the property and build retail or housing which is not needed in the area.
