Hello, I took my 24' travel trailer into camping world to get a couple items looked at while I still had some warranty left. They brought up (which I expected since I live in the desert) that some of the sealer/caulking on the roof has cracks and needs repair (not warranty). Being a large man with a dislike for heights, I asked how much for them to perform the work. I was quoted $372.50 an hour for labor and $50 in materials. They said it would take a couple hours to get done so I would be looking at about a $850 bill. Not all the sealer needs to be repaired, just some spots. My main concern is I have not ever heard of a labor rate that high... Plus when I dropped it off I inquired about some work and was told the rate was $130 per hour which is inline with what I thought it would be. Anyone know or understand why I would be quoted almost $400 an hour labor rate?

LOL yes and you can bet $24 an hour or so goes to the person doing the job the rest all goes to Camping World. My feeling is they will be going broke soon or changing their rates.

That is insane. Must be a mistake. Try an independent RV dealer. Nobody would pay that.

I am located near New York City, and the highest automobile dealer labor rates I have run into are $145 per hour.

There will be more than one person working on it.

Bay fees are probably included in that high labor rate.

I had to have a 53 ft trailer with membrane roof sealed up in Oregon. Had just a small leak, but got turned down picking up a load of grass seed. Trailer had to sit over 24 hours while the repair dried, and it was parked in one of their covered bays to protect the repair from the weather. Can't remember how much they charged for the bay fee, but I do remember it was a ridiculous amount.

They will charge as much as they think the traffic will bare.

As the sign on the door and every receipt states, if you have a problem/question, why not email Marcus Lemonis, the CEO? The claim is, "If you're not happy, he's not happy." Put it to the test!

I wouldn't give Marcus Lemonis one cent after his inability to keep his mouth shut about his politics. Thats a nice way of saying he hates republicans.

I think Mr Marcus has the managers on a perform or else plan. A friends Brother bought a tow bar type thing to tow his driver car behind his motorhome. Out of warranty, Camping World service advisor tells him it can't be fixed- needs a new [email protected] $1200-. He contacted the mfg & they told him since he was in the area of their factory to bring it by. The Mfg. fixed the "can't be fixed" one for no charge. Camping World = SELL, SELL, SELL

I have always had the impression that if someone quotes you a very high price on anything they don’t want the job.
