Had a similar experience at the largest RV Dealer in my area. Looked around and had a salesman following me like a hungry street dog. When I didn't see what I wanted and was leaving he grabbed my arm.
I stopped and asked him to call an ambulance. He asked me if I was having a medical problem. I told him no, he was about to suffer a badly broken arm and he might as well get help on the way early.
CW, on the other hand during my visit yesterday was very pleasant. During my shopping the call of nature called. I asked one of the sales staff if they would watch my puppy in my cart while I "made my bladder gladder". Came back and there were three employees making my little Shih-Tsu the happiest pup in the county with head, back, and rump, scratches. Dog didn't want to leave when I was done.
The cashier did go through the full list of offerings however. CW Visa, Extend Membership in Good Sam, just like the "hot apple pie" at McDonalds but a simple no was good enough and no further pressure.
Would I buy an RV from Camping World? Wasn't even on my shopping list when I bought my new one last year. Didn't have any brand/floor plans I was interested in. Otherwise I might, price being competitive.
