  1. It appears that this Free Enterprise Monopoly (Camping World)is going to continue until the Federal Trade Commission get involved.
    If not, we ALL are going to be forced to buy from Camping World.

  2. And it just continues. Camping World and it’s corporate company want to control the RV industry totally. They have the worst service at their stores and are very pricey. We won’t shop there, period. But what are you going to do when they are the only game in town? I wish someone would stop them.

  3. more acquisitions coming, at least three more over next 90 days, one will make them the “general” of the rv industry

  4. I suspect RV prices to increase in the Pittsburgh area in the very near future. First Campers Inn with its acquisition of Clem’s in 2015/16, now Camping World acquires Coopers. At least a few small locally owned dealers still exist, at least temporarily.
