Couple confesses their RV buying mistakes. This video will make you mad


This video will make you mad (maybe sad is a better word) that the buyers of the fifth wheel trailer were so eager to buy an RV that they made all the classic buying mistakes — ones that will ultimately cost them a lot of money and stress. They explain the “sneaky tricks” the dealer used to charge them an extra $10,000 they later regretted spending.

The saddest thing is the mistakes they made are repeated across the country every hour of every day.

And, by the way, the couple bought the RV from Camping World, which they claim was one of their mistakes. “We liked them at first,” said the husband, “and now we wouldn’t buy another RV from them again.”

This kind of story makes those of us at fume.

This is one of the dumbest fiscal mistakes we’ve ever made! We felt a responsibility to swallow our pride and warn others about camping world (lower case) . Thank you to everyone for the kind comments. We are very grateful that picked up our story and is warning others.

I’d like to give you a thumb’s up, but don’t see the thumb. Good presentation, helpful and entertaining.

Always, always, always read anything you are asked to sign. If it is lengthy (and it usually is) take it home with you and read it a couple of times until you understand that it is designed to protect the seller and not you! You also may have the ability to back out of the deal within three days depending on your state.


Unable to view RV buying mistakes video. Not working on Facebook or on Rv travel site!

Does not make me sad or mad. They ignored their own preset rules. The “research” was either very poorly done or ignored. Like many others, excitement overtakes planning. In the end many put more thought into the last purchase of peanut butter than the RV.


It cannot be said enough or Spoken Loud Enough! NEVER BUY AN RV FROM CAMPING WORLD!

Too bad someone can’t put up a Bulletin Board on the road leading to Camping World, “DO NOT BUY AN RV FROM CAMPING WORLD, YOU WILL BE SORRY!”
