Camping World sold me a 2007 fifth wheel that turned out to be a 2006. Katy, Texas

*Consumer Comment: Year of the RV

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

In 2010 I purchased a 2007 Cardinal fifth wheel trailer from Camping World.  I found out when trying to purchase insurance for the trailer that it was actually a 2006 model as shown on the title.

I have paper work ("Purchase Agreement" and "Retail Installment Contract and security Agreement") that show this trailer as being a 2007 model.  I did not receive a copy of the title from the credit union until I paid the trailer off.  At that time my insurance agent pointed out to me that it is actually a 2006 model.

Also, I had a tire blow out and another with bubbles on the sidewalls before I had pulled the trailer over 150 miles.  After inspection (I have photos) I discovered that the manufacture dates of the tires was older than the RV itself.  All of this was discovered by me after the dealership prep and inspection.

Another issue with Camping World is that I purchased a "Presidents Club" membership when I purchased the trailer.  When the memebership was near expiration, I received numerous letters and final notices to purchase the membership.  I did send in a check on 8/23/2011 and have never received my new membership card and when making a purchrease recently was told my membership had expired.

My main concern is the being sold an older trailer than I was promised and the dangerously poor inspections that this Camping World performed on this trailer.

Note:  My residence was in Houston at time of sale.  My current residenc is in Plano, Tx.

Year of the RV

AUTHOR: got_ripped_at_campingworld - (United States of America)


I am a consumer and I might have some insight to the year and such.  I am not speaking in defense of anyone or any company.
we had an older 1996 Excel that was stamped with 1995 on the actual 5th wheel hitch.  from what I was told that is normal. the year on trailer reflects the year before the model of the trailer.
check into this and it might answer some confusion... and honestly, dealing with cw can be a challenge, gotta stay on top of them for sure.
anyway, best of luck. take care and hope you get it straight on paper.
