Default More Camping World dirty tricks

We bought an new carbon monoxide detector from Camping World online, as they were the only ones who had them available fairly reasonably.


As usual, we immediately got loaded up on the email with sales crap, just like all vendors seem to do now.


I tried to unsubscribe and it said you can't unsubscribe onine, you have to call them on the phone.


There is no way in any world or underworld that the phone call will happen from here, just so they can try to waste our time trying to talk us out of unsubscribing. They will just be blocked and removed from those we buy from.


They just keep getting sleazier and sleazier every day the CW and I sent them an email informing them of that, along with "goodby".

I've had good luck ordering parts from pplmotorhomes.com out of Houston. They are who I bought my RV from last October (they sell only on consignment). But they also have a big parts department and good prices.

They beat Camping World on price by a little bit when I purchased my CO monitor replacement last month. I can't recall if they sent me an e-mail afterwards, but if they did it was easy to unsubscribe. I don't like unsolicited e-mails either.

We certainly would have used PPL, but they didn't have the one I needed on hand. No problems with them in the past either.


Interesting that the email I sent that was through their website, "because we want to hear how we are doing" was refused and not delivered. They don't care about customers, just customer's money.

I've never had issue with them in store but their ordering/inventory system scared me away....no way I was buying from them online after they couldn't even tell me if something was in stock in the store and finding out required a phone call.


Now I just call the store to see if they have it.

There is a big nice Camping World less than three miles from my home. It is the "Source of Last Resorts" for me. PPL and Amazon can usually meet my needs.

I've ordered a few things from Camping World, and actually enjoy getting their printed catalogs. I haven't found their emails obnoxious, either.

Sounds to me like they are in violation of CAN-SPAM - https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/busi...guide-business

By law marketing emails are required to provide a prominent way to unsubscribe from future emails.

Like BillsPaseo said, at the very end of their email message, bottom of the letter, you should see an "unsubscribe" link. It will be very small and faint, but it usually will be there to apply. Also, you can hit the JUNK tab on your browser and send all their emails to the junk folder and you will never see them again.

Maybe "The Profit" should mind his own stores instead of investing in dozens of other businesses. Their crappy customer service is showing up in sales. Camping World stock is close to a 52-week low.

Many years back, when we first got into camping and using a TT, we went to CW to stock up. A customer who was raising pure hell about the installation of a roof-top dome antenna......and they just plain ignored him! We were new, not stupid - left the products and was gone. Went to a NC Dealer and got what we needed. Somehow I feel those who buy their first RV thru CW are akin to those who bought their first computer (Tandy) from Radio Shack - you did that but once. Ron
