Marcus, we recently stopped in the Strafford, Missouri store. We enjoy shopping at this location when we are in the area its much nicer than the location in Grain Valley, Missouri which seems cramped. First of all the sales help was very good. My only concern would be RV parking, both the Strafford location and the Grain Valley location appear to have to much RV inventory. If I were pulling my trailer and wanted to stop at a Camping World store I would have to think twice about it because I would be afraid that I couldn't get in and out easily. We barely found a place to park our car.
I would also like to ask about a possible location. Branson, Missouri is a destination for a lot of RVrs, I believe this would be a great location for a Camping World store you wouldn't necessarily need a sales lot just a store and service bays. I am interested in reading your response. Thank You

I've never been to a camping world with room to park an RV. Doesn't matter, though, as I have found other places to shop.

This fall while running through Louisiana, we planned a stop at the Hammond, Louisiana CW with our 40' motorhome towing our Ford Flex . We almost always stop here, shop and have lunch in the parking lot before moving on.

As was the OP's plight, all the sites were taken up by inventory, used and new and one semi trailer dropped in an RV spot. There were maybe 2 or 3 spots for travelers out of 3 rows. We pulled out and went for fuel. Came back and nothing had changed, so we moved on.

Joke's on you Camping World. We were looking for a product we had previously only seen at CW, but a little research on Amazon and we found the same thing.

So there you have it. If you don't have a parking place accessible for the market you are targeting, we will find someplace else to shop.

Hello Showme 5vr,

Thank you for contacting Good Sam and sharing your suggestions. I apologize for the issues you have had with parking at the Grain Valley and Strafford Camping World locations. I have passed on your concerns to the leadership team for review.
Please reference the Camping World website for future location openings.


Have a good day.
Thank you,
Ella

This has been the case in EVERY CW I have visited lately; about 6 locations across as many states. In a couple of cases, there were scant few parking spaces even for cars.

I suspect this happens because the RV manufacturers PAY the dealers to store their excess production at their stores.

I can't think of any other logical reason for them to do this on purpose.

I've been to the Grain Valley CW, and believe me, the Council Bluffs CW parking lot is worst. They never have space to pull in with an RV and turn around.

Tucson is the same. No room to park an RV. Many times cars have the same problem.

Yes, In CB I have had to park like a block away on the street due to parking lot congestion. Kinda made me wonder if I wanted to spend my money there.
