A great business.....PPL.....Have used them in the past and will use them again.

PPL charged me $9.95 shipping for a 100 lbs equalizer weight distribution hitch and Camping World charged me $14.00 shipping for a 6 oz shower head.

Similar experience. They explained "new ordering system" blah blah blah. I ordered her to refund me so she did. I then ordered same exact items on Amazon and got it 2 days later. There's a Camping World not far from me. If I can't wait to order from Amazon, I'll go buy it directly.

If I'm traveling in the vicinity of our nearest Camping World, 2 hours away, I'll buy it in person. Anything else- AMAZON.COM
For what I'm usually looking for it is often less expensive and free shipping over $35.00, $99.00 before its free on Camping World.
The times I've ordered from CW online, it's been a pain and I'm not likely to do it again.

I ordered a TireMinder TPMS 3 weeks ago. Got the order confirmation quickly, but still no info yet to date about my goods! Real tired and fed up with holding on the phone and they haven't answered my email. Joined good Sam at the same time and that came thru... They were real fast to charge my credit card! Ready to tell them to keep it... I'll take my business elsewhere... If I could only get any response from them!

Yep, same thing happened to me, but I only gave them 7 days and then I cancelled my order. Turned out to be a good thing, as I found my items cheaper somewhere else. I'm spoiled with Amazon, who is amazing how fast they can get things out the door!

X2 The only time I have ever ordered from CW was to get a wooden replacement seat for the cheap plastic seat on our Dometic toilet (highly recommended BTW )

They were the only game in town (at the time) and the seat arrived broken! Called them up and they sent a replacement out but it still took over 4 weeks!

Contrast: (we have Amazon prime) very extensive RV parts and accessory selection! Place web order, stuff arrives in 2 days. Don't like it? print our return label and send it back to Amazon. Amazon credits your CC when the shipment is scanned in at UPS.

Absolutely LOVE Amazon - and the fact that they will ship TO a CG really knocks it out of the park!

After my last experience with CW's extremely late shipment, I've given up on them. After placing an order online, then seeing no progress on it after 5 days I gave them a call. I ended up with someone who must have flunked "English as a second language" multiple times. From what I was able to understand her say, the order was "in process". It finally shipped after being "in process" for over a week. I needed some additional items that CW had, but since the pricing on Amazon was about the same, I went with them and received the items within 2 days. I'll probably still "window shop" at the CW physical stores - when it's convenient - but will NOT place any further orders online - unless their prices are CONSIDERABLY less - and I can wait multiple weeks for it.

I received all ordered items on 3 weeks . But I have a problem with being over charged on my credit card by $ 20.37 over what my invoice said. Called them on 6-4-15 said the credit would take 3-5 days.
As of 6-12-15 8 days later no credit. Call 4 times again put on automatic hold for 30-35 min. On the 4 try I put phone on speaker phone and watched TV till they answered. Talked to Leann explained the no credit issue. She put me on hold for 15 minutes. Returned to tell me she walked down to customer service to find out what the problem was. Then proceeded to tell me it would be another 7-10 days before credit will be issued. She told me she was not even satisfied with that. So she said she would go to management and try to get this resolved right away. If nothing shows up in a couple day to call the same number and ask for her. Well I guess will wait an see what happens. It's 6-18-15 and still no credit 14 days past the original call. I'm done with CW. Very poor business practices. Amazon from now on.
