Is the routine making you stale?
How long have you been in the job you have now? Do you still look forward to going to work each day? Is the job a source of energy for you?
Many of us have been in our jobs for a long time. In this era of mobile employees, I may still be unique in the number of people I reported to.Great Blog by an RV Industry Leader!Posted by: campkinsrv | October 30, 2012Posted by: campkinsrv | July 2, 2012
EverywhereOnce isn’t a political blog, and this isn’t a political post. Health insurance, for us, isn’t a political matter but a practical one.
Of all the things we had to consider when preparing to hit the road full-time, how to manage health care costs was not only the most significant but also the most unpredictable.
In 2010, when we left behind our Mega Corp provided health insurance coverage and surrendered ourselves to the tender mercies of the individual insurance market, we couldn’t guarantee we’d even be sold an individual policy.For all of my American friends, happy RV'ing!

Well the first thing is that with all the new smartphones and tablets we had to make it easier to use on all platforms, so now wether you are using a iPad or a Playbook our mobile website works great!
Also we have added the Online RV Accessory store to our mobile application. What makes our Online RV Accessory Store so unique is that unlike other RV Dealers, Campkin’s Online RV Accessory is not a ‘third party’ link.
When you come to our store you are dealing directly with Campkin’s in Myrtle Station! You can peruse our store when your sitting on the GO Train, or waiting in the Dentist office!
We also have embraced the new QR Code technology that allow our customers to ‘Scan’ with their smartphone and get more information on our RV’s for sale.
If you have dropped by our store on Hwy#12 in Myrtle Stn, you may have noticed that we print off all of our Inventory Sheets, post them in the front window (for after hours and Sunday customers) and you can scan the Qr Code and take home all the info you need to research the products.
At campkin’s RV we are constantly working to make your RV Shopping experience the very best.44.022289 -78.968878Posted by: campkinsrv | May 19, 2011
Ok this might sound crazy but since 1973 I’ve been involved in serving customers who want…no, NEED RV service.
Why is it as an industry we still seem to make it tough for our customers to get hassle free service?
Well I think I know a couple of reasons….
Seasonality: from staffing to crazy rushes of customers we constantly battle the crazy swing of supply and demand. Often if just one employee calls in sick a whole weeks service schedule gets messed up and if course the customer who was promised a pickup date is let down, bad service, right?
Technical support: we are the professionals. We should know how to fix an RV. With all the electronics, the new designs, new construction methods and materials and not to mention hi tech appliances often we are put in the position of having to ‘learn’ how to diagnose and repair an RV for the very first time while under time pressure, calling factories and/or tech lines. Bad service, right?
Scheduling: 9 techs, 7 service bays, 2 parts people, 1 parking lot. Only 8 hours in a day! Long weekend coming up…trying to co-ordinate 8′ to 40′ RV’s into service bays at the right time with the right parts. One part is wrong, could be anyone’s fault, doesn’t matter, have to re-schedule. Bad service, right?
I don’t want to sound negative, what I want to say is even if every person in a parts and service dept does everything right there are external forces that sometimes come into play that can make the hardest working staff member look bad.
We constantly talk about what we do have control over and how we can improve by looking inward and improving our methods and processes.
I am very proud when I hear one of our staff say “your right, we could have and should have done better. We are truly sorry we let you down. Will you allow us another chance to make it right?”
We always own our actions, we can and do offer the very best service and effort everday, no matter what challenges are thrown our way.
And we are very lucky to have 38 years worth of loyal customers who understand and appreciate our committment to them.
