    I had the 45 point inspection done on my 1998 Coleman Sea Pine. They’ve suggested all the propane tanks, regulators, and lines replaced, new bed pins, hooking up the plumbing (I’m confused about why it’s unconnected) which will come to over $1200 on top of the tire replacement and inspection that is costing me over $1000. How is pop-up camping a cheaper way to vacation? We can’t do these things, don’t know about them, so is the best thing to do to pay it and make sure I use my pop up a lot so I can get the best bang for my buck?

    My only advice is to get it out of Camping World as soon as you can and have someone else do the work.

    The first thing you need to replace is your service facility. $1000 for new tires and an inspection?

    Are they overpriced? They are charging me over $1000 for inspection, new tires, and replacement of taillight. Who would I contact to do the work otherwise?

    I thought the $100 for replacing the busted taillight was crazy!

    Someone will eventually, i do most of my own stuff , and am far away. For stuff like breaks, tires and lights any mechanic shop can handle that. If you have any boating places by you see who does there work. ( for the boat trailers. If you are comfortable doing some work yourself , check out you tube vids.

    RUN far away from Camping World! This company ruined many potential customers by providing ridiculously charges and poor customer services. Run away NOW! I would not be caught dead on Camping World site.

    I’m getting out with just tire replacement, inspection, and the tail light that they overcharged me for. I’m researching other local places to do repairs.

    It should not be $1200.00 at all one question: did you bring in the popup for new tires, inspection and taillight replacement or you want to buy the popup and they demand you pay for new tires, inspection and taillight replacement?

    I’m afraid so. It will be the last money they make off of us.

    I brought it in for inspection because that’s the best way I knew to get it ready for a long trip for us. They said the tires were dry rotted, I approved the taillight before they gave me the quote.

    Did they at least service the bearings for that price?....I would be concerned with their condition before a long road trip.

    Here is what CW told us:

    They claim that all the propane stuff is outdated—needs new lines, new tanks, new regulators, and new propane detectors—$540 for parts only. Also, that the water isn’t connected (?) and that it costs a minimum of $270 to connect it all up and make sure it’s working properly. And that we need new bed pins—that would involve a new bolt and torching to bend back what we already have. The tires were $44.15 each, needed 3, and it cost $90 to install them.

    What I most regret right now is paying $67.50 to have a $10 tail light installed. I could have done that myself. I’m not so sad about paying for the inspection or the tires, but the rest of it sounds like I can find another person to do it and explain it to me.

    For the tanks , just swap them out when there empty at a big box store. Checking the propane lines is good, i have rubberized line that conects to copper line. Mine is a 2000 , the copper line is good. Maybe you need new regulatores and ruberized line? But i cant see it costing that much. The copper should be good unless it was crushed by something. Dont know about the water, when was the last time you used all this stuff?

    Something is not adding up. You said they charged you "over $1000" for inspection, tires and taillight, then say it was $44.15 each for the tires, $90 to install the tires, and $67.50 for the taillight. That is less than $300. What was the other $700 for?
