Red Bay RV Collision Repair Shops

My Bus needs repairs resulting from being T-boned by a semi. It's too old (2012) for Tiffin to take it in, but I'm told there are several really good repair shops in Red Bay. Most are former Tiffin employees, so they really know what they're doing.
I'm curious as to whom people have gone and, more importantly, what shops they would avoid. I don't ask for anyone to 'bad-mouth' a shop here, but if I could get a PM from anyone with adverse experience at the independent shops in Red Bay, it would be appreciated.
At the top of my list of considerations, in no particular order, are Double B, Custom RV Paint, Banner Paint, and Wrights RV. If you have another great shop, please add to my listing.

I second Bruce Deaton's shop, Custom Paint and Body. They do excellent work and are very professional.

This shop is owned by Brad McKinney who was the paint shop foreman at the Tiffin Service Center until a couple of years ago. I would expect nothing but quality work from him.

Just another vote for Bruce Deaton. I've used his services and will go to him first for any other body work.

And another vote for Bruce. Be sure and call ahead for reservations with a substantial lead time. If you have photos of the damage and email them to Melanie, his wife, they will give you an estimate. You will not be disappointed with their work or prices!

Just so the email is addressed correctly Bruce's wife's name is Melody. Their email address is: rvcustompaint@gmail.com

Body work

Just another strong vote for Bruce Deaton and crew. Very professional. Did a beautiful repair on my Bus and charged less than his "email estimate".
