Man accused of writing $246K worthless check for Winnebago RV arrested


    The Nelly Furtado song title “All good things come to an end” foretold the demise of Robert Schneider, the wannabe RVer that wrote a bogus $246,000 check to buy a Winnebago motorhome from Lazy Days RV in Seffner, Florida.

    Schneider was found – along with the stolen RV – in Broward County after news of the RV theft was broadcast on TV. Detectives got a tip that led them to the vehicle that was stopped Friday at an RV park in the city of Oakland Park, reported

    Robert Schneider, 59, was arrested nearby.

    Managers of the Seffner business that sold the RV said they will pick it up from an impound lot in Broward County.

    Schneider will be extradited back to Hillsborough County, where deputies say he will be held on a $150,000 bond for first-degree grand theft.

    Lazydays is to large. It took me six days to purchase a $40,000 travel trailer. They push you through from salesperson to delivery. I sat and waited on people for hours. Make sure you get everything fixed or repaired before releasing any money.


    He can always write a check to post bond:-)

    He should have at least got a decent RV, why go to Jail over a Winnebago, they should go to Jail instead for lousy customer service.


    I wonder if the Sales Manager is still working at Lazy Daze? Heads should be rolling for NOT verifying that this Check was good, before handing over the keys!

    And then this guy only gets a 150,000 Bond! Ridiculous!
