Need SoCal AirForce One & RoadMaster Installer

Iím reaching out to find recommendations on good installers for the AF1 and RM on my Raptor; which Iíve learned isnít 100% straight forward. I donít have the time or patience to tackle it myself, yet find myself not trusting a lot of hacks out there.

Problem is...I havenít found any around! Iím in the eastern end of LA County, close to Orange County as well.

Appreciate some advice.

I called Demco and the told me El Toro RV is a pretty common dealer down there.

Thereís a bunch on the Demco Dealer Locator search but, again, says nothing about their credibility.

You might try the shop in Colton. I have not been there but have heard good things about them.

i used to live in huntington beach. i don't know if these places are still there or not. there was a dennis dillon rv at the intersection of the 405 and 22 freeways. there was a place in costa mesa right next to the south side of the 405 freeway. i don't remember the name. there is camping world on the 5 freeway in la mirada (i believe).

Thank you.

Not a recommendation, but my friend had Mike Thompson in Fountain Valley do the install on a Palazzo and Jeep JK, came out great.

A little farther south than you guys, but I used Melís Welding in Vista, CA to install the Blue Ox base plate on our Wrangler, and both the Jeep and Coach side of the Air Force one system. A very clean install! He installs both AF1 and Roadmaster.

Redlands Truck and RV is good but a little on the high side.

Thanks for the suggestions, Iíve had one quote from Arrow in Ontario of $5k...holy cow...I wasnít expecting that!

This was for the Nighthawk, AF1, and all the special wiring junk.

BTW, that quote also included the wireless Coachlink, which Iím not sold on. Itís a bit over $200.

My sister just had these installed on their DP Motorhome at the Camping World in Redlands (Waterman exit off the 10)

They got big discounts on multiple installs with a promotion CW was doing.

They are happy with the work and the service was done in 5 hours on coach - but took a couple of days on the TOAD

Call Rick's Trailer Supply in San Clemente, 949-498-2342. They do great work but they're not cheap. I don't know if they install Air Force One but they do sell Roadmaster. Rick's is my go-to place now.
