Is there a link for those dealers? I haven't seen or heard of one.
I know the Ford dealer in my area works on MH's, Chehalis Wa.

On my phone there is a button for advanced filters where I can select Class A or Class C motorhome.

My local dealer, even though it is not listed will do an oil change at a quick lane, tech rolls underneath, drains oil,remove and replace filter, top off fluids, replace oil, for 48 bucks. They do a lot of mh and ambulances.

Jones Ford in Cottonwood AZ does oil changes but nothing else on MHs. I think they quoted $60.

None of my local Ford dealers will service RVs even though they are listed on the Ford Commercial website. I think the dealers got tired of cleaning carpets and paying for damages to RVs that happened while in their care.


My local Freightliner shop, Detroit Diesel shop, and Cummins shop all work on RV chassis issues, but not a Ford shop to be found unless I drive 120 miles. That's why my next RV will not be on a Ford chassis.

You're not in the Chicago area, by any chance? Because that's pretty much the same issue I'm having here.
The one place I could find that worked on motorhomes now will only work on trucks. Everything else is miles away.
The first on the list, Packey Webb Ford, built a new state of the art dealership and facility, sells box trucks on the E450 chassis, doesn't work on them and won't touch our motorhome. The service writer was as blunt as could be when I asked him.
How can they build a dealership, sell trucks and not work on them or motorhomes?
All I want is a transmission filter and fluid change!

I'm thinking this is one of the top reasons many Ford dealerships choose not to do any motorhome service. Too much hassle from the RV owner.

I feel extremely lucky that I have a local Ford dealer satellite location just a few miles from my home that will happily change my oil/filter. At a very fair price. They do it outside, in the lot, and crawl under.
They do excellent work, and are extremely careful. It is always returned to me in exactly the same clean condition I left it. I could not be happier.
I make it a point to send the service manager a "thank you for a job well done" email....each time.

I think this is definitely an advantage of a Class C, on the E350/E450 chassis. They don't have to go 'inside' the coach, or walk through the motorhome....risking dirt/grease on the carpet/flooring. Just a quick in and out of the driver's door and driver's seat, which can be easily covered.

I use Gator Ford outside Tampa. They do all sorts of service for motorhomes. They have plastic covers for seats and steering wheel. What's more, is they do full chassis lube with oil change.
