Perhaps you would of found the number of cars in the parking lot more to your expectations had you come when we were open. BTW there were more class A's C's B's TT's and FW's (110) inside the facility.”
PCARR, My response is going to seem a little extreme so let me explain why. I have had some pretty lousy experiences with RV dealers so your comment rubs me the wrong way, steps on one of my very last nerves plus you didn’t seem to read my post, you just reacted to what rubbed you the wrong way. Since clearly I’m the consumer side of this equation I don’t have to say things you like. It probably would have been best if you disagreed with me to post some questions asking me why I came to the conclusions I came to and maybe even asked me what time I was there instead of assuming, well, everything.
I digress, back to the point. I had no idea you were closed when I got there at 12:15pm on Sunday, I don’t think the other people there or the employees I saw knew either but thanks for clarifying it. Did you look at the pictures I took? Does it look closed to you or did I bring those people with me as props to use on my blog.
Click the picture, I know it’s hard to tell, but there are people in the foreground and background. The doors to the rigs are open, my guess and I could be grasping, you were open when I was there.
I had expected more cars there because this was an RV show, Collier RV has similar events on “Sunday’s” and they were packed, on Sunday. I’m not slamming you for not having a lot of people there, I was happy to be able to walk around without bumping into children who have to sit in every drivers seat and jump on everything. I was just surprised by how few people there were, because this was the first time, Sunday or no, that I had gone to an RV show with so few people showing up.
You either have an event, have enough staff there to properly prep/clean the RV’s for prospective buyers or you don’t, simple really. Being a Sunday has nothing to do with it, Church and family time has nothing to do with it (they are of course important, but that’s not the point here). The rigs I saw were anywhere from dirty to filthy and almost every Class A RV I went into smelled bad, except for the HR Imperial, even though it was dirty, the floor mats for the driver and passenger were thrown into the middle of the rig upside down but I looked past that, it’s an awesome rig and washable but it makes you wonder how well it was cared for. I’m guessing many people have to look past things when buying an RV and just going by the blogs I read I know this is true, which is unfortunate but there are only so many places locally to buy from and not everybody is willing to travel to look.
I appreciate the effort it takes to put together an event and I understand why you do it. I don’t doubt it takes quite a bit of money to do it but don’t cop an attitude at me for going to an event on a Sunday, you were, sir or madam, indeed very open for business. However I can fix my mistake by never going to a Camping World again.
I apologize to my blog readers for losing my temper but it’s my blog and if I can’t lose my temper on my own blog where can I do it.
