RE: Camping world in Fort Worth is dumb

Hmm let's see $25 sewer hose vs new RV for 100k. Yep, they must be dumb as a sack of rocks to go after the new RV sale vs that $25 sewer hose. I spent 500 dollars that day, and camping world is generally more expensive, but the selection is higher. Also, they make considerably more money on the back end and in parts and accessories than new sales. Camping world is like a gas station, they sell lots of gas, but they make money when people come inside and buy drinks and snacks. Even if they didn't, it's still a flawed business model. Without repeat customers they have no real income. If they didn't want repeat customers, they wouldn't have giant service, parts, and retail stores. So I'm gonna have to disagree with your logic there.

RE: Camping world in Fort Worth is dumb

My experience with the 3 Camping Worlds ( all East Coast ) that I have been in over the past few years is that they ALL have tried to gear up the inventory ( smaller, entry level ) and all available spots were full with something.... Doesn't make it a bad thing.. Just adding to their bottom line I mean, it is a bad thing. The entire ideology of the business model is to be friendly to rvers. Preventing them from even coming to your stores seems a bit backward.

RE: Camping world in Fort Worth is dumb

I find it interesting that RV dealer lots are jam-packed, over-full of new units, yet Thor 'claims' they have so many back orders they may not be able to fill them until 2023. Oh, really? As Paul Harvey used to say, I'd like to hear "the rest of the story" . . . i.e. the truth. For what it's worth, the only thing they had were relatively cheaper models. I saw a single class C, and a single class A, both used. It looks like perhaps they're gearing up for spring and all the new entry-level campers. I was in Class A that's only 34 feet long and literally wasn't able to enter the parking lot whatsoever. I think I'm more annoyed that I wasn't able to use the dump station. THat's one of the perks they list with good sam and I was driving around with a pretty full blank tank. It was pretty frustrating.

Camping world in Fort Worth is dumb

We wen't out of our way today to hit up the camping world in fort worth so we could dump our black tank as we destroyed our hose, figured we'd buy one and dump it there. We showed up and they were so interested in selling RV's, they literally had EVERY SINGLE rv spot blocked with new units. We were unable to park at camping world, had to go about 2500 feet away at another store. Once we were in, they told us they had so much inventory they had to block the spaces, and they had to block the dump station and were unable to make room for us to dump. I'd suggest that if anyone needs to stop at a camping world, they don't do it at this one. And if camping world cares about existing customers, not just new ones, they should REALLY find a way to make parking happen. I have better access at walmart than I do at most camping worlds.
