Experience with these shops?

Due to a fire in my 2008 American Eagle, it looks like the interior is going to need a total makeover. Maybe not gutted, but close to it. Wonder if any of you all have any experience with either of the following: Ancira RV in Alvarado, TX or Class A RV Repair near San Antonio? The insurance people said they have had excellent results with Class A RV Repair and the company does excellent work. I don't have a preference other than the fact that Ancira is an American Coach dealer, but that may not be that big of a deal. Any inputs are welcomed & thanks in advance --

No fire, but we did a pretty extensive interior remodel in '11. We have been completely satisfied and the work done has been trouble free.

I would visit each business and look as some of their work in progress. I would observe the techs & I would ask to meet and talk to who ever would be take the lead on coach.

Good luck and safe travels.

Agree with steve.

Visit both and ask for shop tour to observe work in action.

Look at whole place as the shop working conditions will tell of quality of work.

Look at how the workers are doing things and if protection is used.

Do the place covers on things to keep debris out of places they are not working.

Is floor clean?

A dirty place indicates sometimes lack or personal pride.

Are the workers doing the work all very young or are they older?

Young ones work for less and usually not as good as older more expensive workers...

Ask to see inside work in progress so you can "see the bones"

Also agree with Steve - go see them in action and possibly a finished project.

Just for laughs, you could prolly hire the drunk who lives under the railroad bridge to do the job and get far better results than the factory work was!! Just sayin

Seriously, most shops will give better quality than factory workers did as they actually care about the job and take personal pride in their work.

Check out Iron Horse RV in San Antonio. I have heard good things about them and they are actually doing a residential refer install for me next week.
