It was great to see someone lay out so many of those tactics and how the cost add up.

I don't see what the big deal is. It's called capitalism. It's the buyers responsibility to do his homework before hand. If he doesn't like the price or the deal, walk away.

Yes, Rogn! It goes to the capacity of buyer. Those that are unable to understand, negotiate, walk away...hmmmm.

Watched the video. Local CW tried the same tactics on me. They didn't get even to the point of printing it out on paper.

CW was upfront with everything.. even this guy on the video knew what each added item was, so in my mind, everything was disclosed, and it's up to the consumer to accept or not. If CW policy is to try to recoup portions of prep costs and delivery charges, and they disclose it, and consumer accepts it.. then it's pretty much on the consumer.

I bought my trailer just as Camping World bought out the dealership.

It was weird when I dropped off my trade in and picked up my new trailer, but the deal had been made. Camping World couldn't change it. They did try. I kept pointing to the paperwork that had already been finalized and stating that I had already paid for my unit.

I don't bother trying to use them for repair work. I have an independent RV mechanic who is fantastic.

CW sounds like time share salesmen. Sadly, legal for the most part. I commend this dealer for taking a stand when it may well harm him more than hit helps him but at least he's trying. The RV industry is half bent.

None of this will change until Marcus is gone.

True Scott, and what's funny if you remember his past claims and statements, he has tried to claim the moral high ground, while using every means available to take advantage of an unsuspecting public.
