I'm not retired and my time is valuable, especially when I plan a lengthy vacation (which I'm not often able to do).
Unfortunately, the reality is the Truckers either have previously negotiated service contracts or are, at minimum, potential repeat customers who talk about service received with other owner/operators who accumulate 21,000 miles per year of wear.
When on vacation in a motorhome, you are just a Tourist passing through putting on your 5 thousand miles per year.
Yes, your time is valuable to you.
But the question then is how valuable are you, and motor home owners like you, to the shop vs the truckers.
Frustrating yes. Reality yes.
