As just about any motorhome owner will tell you, having your recreational vehicle break down is one of the most frustrating events—especially if you’re in the middle of a long road trip. No one wants to get stranded somewhere when they’ve made plans to visit friends and family in other places. Many of us purchase our motorhomes with the intention of traveling and seeing everything there is to see in this beautiful country. If you’ve ever taken your RV somewhere to get it fixed in the past, there’s a good chance you’ve experienced very long wait times, which can be common at motorhome dealerships. If you need your motorhome repaired again and you’re worried that it might take a long time, don’t cancel your road trip plans, yet. Here’s what you need to know about getting your RV repaired quickly in Dallas or Fort Worth, Texas:
Look for a facility that is dedicated to RV repair.
When it comes to many RV dealers, they tend to put more resources into selling RVs than into fixing them, so they fall behind in their work easily. You’ll fare much better with a shop that focuses on repairs, instead. We tend to have a greater sense of urgency, better equipment, and more highly-trained RV technicians than dealerships do. It allows us to do our jobs much more efficiently.
Ask to schedule a drop off appointment immediately.
If the RV repair shop you contact is so booked that they won’t allow you to drop your vehicle off yet, then cross them off your list. Keep looking until you find a shop that can take your motorhome right away.
Consider using a direct repair RV shop.
As the exclusive direct repair RV shop for most major auto insurance companies, at Coach Specialists, we are able to speed through the insurance claims process quickly, greatly reducing our customers’ downtimes. Having strong relationships with insurance companies can be a huge advantage for both RV repair shops and their customers.
Ask for details about the length of time needed for your repair.
An average motorhome repair takes 2 or more days to complete. Many of the common causes of RV breakdowns can be repaired fairly quickly, like blown tires, dead batteries, and minor roof repairs. However, many factors contribute to the length of time your particular repair might require, including the availability of parts, the extent of damage, the amount of paint work needed, and more. A good RV repair facility in Dallas will be able to give you a realistic estimation of how much time your repair will take.
