My husband and I responded to an offer we received from Camper World after we bought our trailer. "Once in a life time opportunity! These memberships don't open up to the public very often! Hurry now!" When we went to the meeting we were told that we could bring family, friends and pets with no problems. We can even let them use our membership without us there! We were told our maintenance fee would be $295.00 per year for exclusive access to 9 campgrounds here in Utah and that fee would never go up.
Since then...We found out that there are many restrictions making it almost impossible for us to enjoy our membership. They made it impossible to bring family. Not only can you not have guests with you on holidays, but they also demanded to see birth certificates to prove they were our kids or our parents. That is such BS. We listed our family on our membership papers when we signed up. Not to mention that the camp ground hosts are rude as hell and constantly harass you while your there! Every park we've been to, they've treated us with nothing more than disrespect. I guess they don't realize where their paychecks really come from?
Last year they jacked up our maintenance fee to $400.00 WITHOUT NOTICE! Then they also charged all their members a $600.00 Assessment fee! Also WITHOUT NOTICE! If we didn't pay it, they wouldn't allow us to use our membership nor would they allow you to sell your membership. They claimed that because of the economy it was necessary for them to charge this assessment to all their members in order for them to pay off all of their properties and be debt free! Well that's great for them because they put a lot of their members in financial hardship for their own personal gain. They didn't care about the impact this would have on their members. I wonder what they will hit us with next year?
Now today... we get a letter in the mail stating that we have to register our dog with them on an annual basis AND we have to have submit annual vaccination records AND a liability insurance policy! AND we have to present our "Camper World Dog Card" every time we go to the park or our dog won't be allowed in the park. I'm a good pet owner. My dog is registered with a chip, she is vaccinated. She's only 3 lbs and I'll be damned if I'm going to run out a pay for a liability insurance policy on her.
Camper World is only interested in getting you locked into a $7,000.00 contract that you have no way out of. They will lie and deceive you to get you to sign and then you will find out that in the end.... you got screwed because they make it impossible for you to use your membership. Buyer Beware!
