    Yes they are number 1, but they still needed THOR to bail them out. So how good can they truly be?

    You can promise the world – But will Freedom Ruins be around to honor the promises?

    The rules for top dealer sales MUST be changed. Lets face it, how many dealerships do they have 60? In that case they will win top dealer every year by default ! Like RV Guy states.. if they are number one why do they need bail outs! We need to change the rules for this recognition. I think that it should be broken down in regions. For example North East, South East, Mid central etc. This way it would better qualify dealers that work hard to increase their sales. Also we should tie in customer satisfaction ratings as well to qualify. Sorry Freedom Roads/Camping World but this is the truth.

    I wonder where all the money is going!? They can’t heat some shops and have a spending freeze on even small essential hardware and office supplies!

    I agree with Webb…Camping World/Freedom Roads have over 100 locations combined…and they needed Thor to bail them out! Come on, whats going on with this picture. However, Lazy Days has only one location and sells thousands. So does Giant RV with five locations.

    Do we really need another national corporation with the Wal-Mart mentality? Stores like Lazydays and Giant have far better customer service and local economic impact.
