DJ - Welcome to the club. I'm up the road in Hartford.

I've bought accessories at CW, but that's about it. I shopped trailers AND service departments. And while my non-CW dealer may be an hour away (Racine), their service has been outstanding. Even sent a tech to my driveway because he was on his way to his cabin up north... saving me a trip down to the dealership for a failed light switch. Yeah, I'm a fan.

IMO CW does well in the camping gear and outdoor accessories market place, but I've never considered them a viable RV purchase/service source......, to much negative press for to long.

With so many negative reviews, as mine would be if I gave one, it's a wonder CW keeps its doors open. I know unhappy customers complain more than happy ones praise, but it's a matter of numbers, or as the barristers might say, a preponderance of the evidence!

So my sales experience was pretty good, mostly because I chose exactly what I wanted, played dealers off each other over email, and then got the price I was looking for.

It's nice that the place I'm picking it up is close to home. But I worry about service after reading this.

I spent over a month researching trailers... I guess I should have spent some more time researching dealers as well...

That's life. Hopefully it works out (fingers crossed).

7 more weeks to wait (or so...)
You should have a pleasant experience in your purchase. I would recommend CW on my purchase experience. After I put a down payment on my 5er the area GM decided to clear out the 2014 models and they knocked another 5K off the unit. I already had the best price I could find on a nationwide internet inquiry. My point being CW sells thousands of RV's and though not all deals and service are what someone would expect many more are. I have seen and heard some stories about smaller RV dealers that would make you think buying an RV would be insane. Good luck on your purchase and many happy miles of travel.

honestly I couldn't make this stuff up. As stated earlier I have had nothing but a poor experience with them on-line, in-store in the Kissimmee Fl store we found a great person, helpful and knowledgeable too.

So this makes me laugh, on June 2nd I placed an order for several items. Not seeing anything for weeks I called multiple times, st on hold one day for an hour just because I was at work and really wanted to see if anyone would answer. Never once did I get a person to answer. So on June 25th I sent an email, thinking maybe I would get a reply. Haha, silly me.

Yesterday 8/25 I check my email and they finally responded. My order did show up, the last item was well over a month, it trickled in piece by piece.
Below is the email I received, I feel much better now , BTW that's the number I called before...

a funny follow up -

Last week, after we brought home our new Keystone, I got a letter from Camping World thanking me for my purchase. I think that's how they keep going in the face of all these negative reviews, they are just clueless.

It's a shame that they have a sort of monopoly on the Jayco products - at least in my area. No one can come close to the prices they have on Jayco's. In the end it just wasn't worth it to me.

We are super happy with our new Springdale. My only regret is that the Keystone forums don't seem as great as this one. You all might be stuck with me - Jayco or not LOL.

Drove past CW yesterday and took mine to a Pueblo dealer, another 40 miles. Had one experience with this CW. It wasn't horrible, but wasn't reassuring, either. At best, I find all CWs I've visited looking for RVs, parts, stuff, etc., very impersonal. Just a number.

After everything I've read about CW over the years, I would never take a rig there for service. Not only that I really hate going to their stores and getting pestered on the way out by some little kids trying to sell me memberships to various clubs.
