The foolery is not over. They will also want thousands for the delivery inspection and set up, another thousand for documentation fees, and although illegal will want thousands if you do not finance through them. Camping World did you favor, just buy from someone else.


This is180 degrees from my buying experience when I bought mine from CW. Very smooth, no extra fees other than a small doc fee. I let CW bid on the financing and they wrote the loan through Bank of America’s which had the lowest rate available. No fee for PDI. It was a great transaction.

Now if you want to talk about service costs and results, it’s a different story.

Apparently you are still riding the same horse you were on when you started the "Make an Offer" button thread less than a month ago. We get it, you don't agree with Camping World's sales and advertising practices.
There are plenty of other RV dealers throughout the land. Maybe one of those will do things the way you want them done. In other words, instead of trying to change the spots on a leopard, get a different breed of cat.


Why always the negative post about anyone's post
Would be a pretty bad forum if they added a rule that you can only agree with what the heck ever someone posted, no matter how ridiculous. This is the second time in a month the OP has started a thread about how they do not like how Camping World's internet advertising practices. How many different threads are too many?
As for the actual fact that if you click the "get the best price button" you get directed to call the dealership here is my view. I don't think it is unreasonable for any business to want to have contact with a customer when that customer is asking to negotiate a price, especially when it is a negotiation on a potentially complicated transaction involving many potential variables. The dealer has no idea if a trade is going to be involved, if the vehicle is actually equipped exactly as others it is being compared against. Will the buyer require financing? Will the buyer be adding equipment? Is the sale contingent of the buyer selling their rig? Time might be of the essence in that a rebate may be ending or the vehicle is the last one on the lot prior to a manufacturer's price increase. The dealer may have other vehicles they do not have advertised, or the buyer is otherwise unaware of, that might better fit the needs of the buyer. Finally, the OP apparently lives in Texas and the rig is located in Spokane, Washington. Dealers are not total idiots, they know that it is unlikely that they will consummate a long distance sale without special circumstances. That information can only easily be gained by talking to the buyer. It really isn't that unusual or invasive a request.

I was going to defend your original post as not being unusually negative, but go ahead and keep digging your hole. You like their deceptive attempt to get the buyer engaged with a salesman when what the buyer really wanted was to know what is the best price for that unit. I wish you could tell us which RV park is yours so that I would be sure to not stay there. I'm sure you would like that, too. (BTW, if their "best price" was really $10,000 less than anyone else in the country do you think I would not fly to Washington?)

So the “best price” was $79,990. Just because you don’t want to negotiate? Put on your big boy pants and offer $70.

You apparently cannot read, besides, I doubt they would accept a $70 offer. ROFL

I think it would be rather naive to think any dealer is going to post on their website the very best price they are going to sell any unit. Factually, they most times do not really know themselves. I can't tell you how many times I have said "This is the lowest price I am going to take"...not one penny less...and meant it. Then, only to be made a real offer by a real customer with real money.
