I ordered 2 items from Camping World on July 7th and have not heard anything 4 days later. When I check order status it states In Process which it said from the beginning.

4 days and nothing. Wanted to use these on upcoming trip but doesn't look like that's going to happen.

Very disappointed and will look elsewhere for future items.

It's not just a CW issue.
Last Wednesday I ordered a plastic clip through Amazon. The clip was $7.99. Shipping was $8.99.
I thought it was next day delivery. It won't be until Tuesday.

Because of Covid-19, and particularly the disruption to airline schedules because nobody is flying, the entire supply chain around the country is a mess. I just got my Father's Day present from my daughter in LA a couple days ago. I've seen notes on various web sites from which I've ordered things about shipping often taking longer than normal, and experienced it with numerous packages. You aren't alone, OP. And all those among us used to near instantaneous receipt of ordered goods are going to have to get used to going back to the old days when you placed an order or mailed somebody something, and it could be expected to take a while to get there.

OP here,

I went and looked and now I see I can expect delivery July 23rd. That will be 16 days to get two small items.

Marcus care to address this? Why such a delay? Why wasn't I informed prior to ordering about the shipping time?

Absolutely horrible service

OP here

I can accept some delay but 16 days and no there wasn't any warning about delays.

I have ordered from Amazon and eBay with no delays what so ever. FedEx UPS USPS are all still working very hard and they are all flying. The delay is getting someone at Camping World to pull the items put them in a box attach shipping label and send to shipper.

It likely is next day delivery. The "next day Delivery" or Prime "two day delivery" starts when they ship it. not when you order it. Deceptive practice or marketing genius?

You can't put a porcupine in a barn, set it on fire, and expect to make licorice.

Has OP forgotten about the Corona Virus and it’s effect on businesses? Shipping? Availability? Amazon is behind too. Is OP this demanding with his supermarket? They can’t get full orders either.

Most likely they don't have the units in stock. Many retailers save overhead by advertising merchandise they don't have, and then waiting until they reach a certain number to achieve a volume threshold, and then they order product to, in turn fill their orders.

I think it's both. Thanks. [emoticon]
