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.


The end justifies the means and to hell with customer

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.

Seeking Alpha (which is website stock analysis place) states 79% of CW's revenue comes from selling new and used rv's

They closed locations that did not sell rv's. And it appears they continue to make boat loads of money. So not sure it is a flawed business model.

I hear what you are saying though, and I agree, but seems like the parts thing is just kind of an add on to help generate RV sales from what I can gather
