Extensive body work

Hi everyone,

I'm fulltime in my coach and am currently in Northern Colorado making my way in bits to Quartzsite.

I recently whacked a bridge and need extensive body work, mostly aluminum (all pass. side storage doors will have to be fabricated), that I'd liked repaired before I arrive. Estimates here in Denver have been "can't see you until 1st of November, 2-3 months to repair.

So, my question: Where might I drive to, to have the work done? Thanks so much for your responses.

I don't think that "extensive body work" and getting it repaired quickly is going to compute very well...

Denver, sorry to hear of your issue. I would look at visonerv.com as they part out damaged motorhomes and ma have what you need. They have quite a large inventory. Good luck, Don

Sorry I wasn't clear. I cannot wait until November to start repairs that won't finish until January, in northern Colorado. Not a four season couch.

I am ultimately headed for southern Arizona. Is there a reputable body shop with hookups between Denver and Quartzsite? And, I am good with driving into Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Utah and Arizona.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a paint and body for motor homes along the I-25, I-40, I-10, corridors?

Thanks

Thanks Rob,

I'll keep them in mind if we can't come up with something in West Texas or parts west. I'm hoping someone has had experience with a paint and body in the Southwesten US.

OP, we had 3 massive hail storms in June and July. The body shops are completely booked up. If the rig is driveable, look south of Colorado Springs or even Grand Junction area. I own a glass shop and we are still slammed with work from the July storm.
