Viking Camping World CWS8

Been lurking for a long time. First post.
Just got a flyer in the mail from Camping World and they are advertising a Viking 8 foot pop up, model CWS8 with Camping World logos. That model number is not in the Viking brochure, and I'm guessing it is a model specific to Camping World, therefore the CW in the model number.
They put in some kind of crazy list price then say it is on sale and you save $5,565. Not sure where they pulled the MSRP of $11,560, but that number is so plainly made up that even though the camper is priced at $5,995, I am not sure I want to deal with a company that begins the deal with that kind of seemingly false advertising.
Anyone here deal with Camping World and what is your opinion of buying there?
A basic 8 foot pop up for $5,995 seems like a good price, but why do you think they inflate the MSRP to make it seem like a bigger bargain than it actually is?

I think all RV manufactures are guilty as charged when it comes to inflating the list price. We just purchased a Coachmen travel trailer that had a list price of almost $32,000 but we paid over $8,000 less than that out the door.

I would not let the list price discrepancy alarm you.

Thanks. I called my local CW and they did not have it in stock. Guess I'll look elsewhere.
