Creative Coach in Lakeland does a fine job. They have done work for me before and you could not tell there was ever any damage. They can do it all, including interiors and mechanical work.

Yes I would 2nd the recommendation for Creative Coach. I had a Progressive comprehensive claim, Progressive recommended the big RV store here in FL saying that they would accept the claim $. After seeing a friends repair done there, I was convinced I didn't want to go there. So I called Creative because of their reputation of doing good work, even though I was a little intimidated because I know they do a lot of high end work. I asked them if they would accept Progressive's claim and they responded that they would work it out with Progressive and all I would have to do is pay my deductible. Creative did a 1st class job and went above and beyond to help me out. Couldn't have been more pleased with the results. Damage included a cracked rear fiberglass cap. Paint matched perfectly.

I bought a new diesel pusher on line and flew from Tampa to NY to pick it up. I put a Darlington stripe down the drivers side and cargo compartments across the multi colored graphics of the full body paint, my fault.

I took it to R and B auto body in St Petersburg, FL. Easy access to I-275 if you can drive your RV. They have the contracts for all of Fed Ex, UPS, Most Tampa Bay buses, Sanitation trucks etc. No way to tell it was ever damaged and the cost very reasonable.

3rd vote for Creative. Lester will take care of you! I had them do some interior work (residential fridge upgrade and new valences for MCD shade upgrade), but they are a quality shop, just not cheap.

I'll chime in here with another vote for Creative who repaired some hail damage. I also had some body work done at Alliance when a lady tried to merge into my storage bay. They both did a great job not only with the repair, but matching my custom paint job. I don't think you could go wrong with either of them. Just a note, Alliance gets pretty busy during snowbird season, don't know about Creative. One nice thing about Alliance is they have their own campground.
