Gander Outdoors, the new company formed by parent Camping World from the remnants of Gander Mountain, has launched their new retail website as brick & mortar locations open across the country.
RV Miles editors did a price comparison of 20 non-sale items and found an average of 16% savings over outdoor giant Cabela’s, and prices nearly identical to Amazon.com.
For instance, a Goal Zero lighthouse 400 Lantern and USB Powerhub Combo retails for $109.99 on Cabela’s website. Gander offers the product for $79.99. Amazon’s price is $79.95. In addition, Gander Outdoors offers free shipping on orders over $50. Cabela’s currently is offering a “free shipping on orders over $99” special, but shipping to our offices for the Goal Zero lantern would have set us back $16. The Amazon price includes free prime shipping, but membership to Amazon prime is required, so Gander gets the edge on this product.
Gander and Cabela’s both offer a price match guarantee, so theoretically you can get any item at the best price out there, but only Gander’s price-match extends to web orders. Cabela’s price match is for in-store purchases only.
Campers with a Good Sam membership can get additional discounts of up to 10% at Gander Outdoors, with 69 retail stores opening by May.
