Where to find a Texas RV repair shop that can the replace the floors on fifth wheel RV’s?
We recently had a customer come to us with a 2006 Holiday Rambler Savoy LX and they wanted to have all of the flooring redone. This also included removing the carpet in living area and replacing it with vinyl or laminate, replacing the carpet in bedroom with new carpet, and they also wanted to update the TV/DVD/radio, add a new antenna and add a headboard. How much would that repair like that cost?
Most Texas RV dealerships specialize in one thing, selling RV’s. Even though they may say that they are a sales and service dealership, RV dealers want to see tail lights. The ugly truth about RV dealers is that when you need repairs done, the RV will just sit on the lot for months waiting on parts and repair time.
The frustrations of this customer are shared among many fifth wheel RV owners who are seeking repairs and custom RV work within a reasonable time frame.
At Coach Specialists of Texas, we handle RV’s of all makes models shapes sizes and even vintages. We have a complete custom shop that can handle any specialty fit outs that your RV could ever need.
For this customer, we had to strip out most of the interior, including any furniture, tables, mouldings, retainers, and railings in order to pull out the carpet. After that we had to inspect and test the original subfloor. Fortunately the subfloor was in goo shape.
Once the old floor coverings were removed, we could then prep the subfloor for the new laminate flooring.
Our in house design team competed some sketches for the headboard and our upholstery department did the upholstery work.
How much does it cost?
Each RV is different so it is impossible to hang a price tag on any job as a once size fits all. But to give you an idea, here is how much a recent roof repair job cost a customer. This will give you an idea of how materials can add up, and how labor rates can impact your repair cost.
