Highly Recommended Body Shop MA/CT


I scuffed my right rear quarter on my 36 foot Coachmen recently on a rock specifically placed in that location because people were driving on the church's lawn. Really pissed me off that I did it and I said some unchristian like words but anyhow I was looking for an outfit to fix it and found Fleet Pride in Agawam, Massachusetts. They are on the MA/CT border directly off route 91.

They are a tractor trailer repair outfit that also has a guy who does bodywork. My RV slid right into the spray booth with room to spare. Donnie the bodyman did an outstanding job. Pulled my AL basement doors off pulled them apart and straightened out the bent metal. He re-riveted them back together and it looks like new.

He took one of the basement doors with him to the paint supplier to match the color. They have a scope that analyzes the color. Just a fine job - base coat/clearcoat. I have a $500 deductible but payed out of my pocket because the final tally was $200 more than my deductible avoiding 7 years of points.

They don't specialize in RVs so maybe that helped price wise but the guy is picky as am I - trust me.

If you need bodywork on your rig and live close by or even if you have to travel it will be worth your while.

He even kept it inside the building for safety reasons. He said the indigenous locals were not to be trusted. Is that insensitive?

Best Regards,

Sorry to hear about your misfortune with your new rig. Glad you found a decent repair shop. That's a good ride for me, but I hope I'll never need them.

Thanks for the tip.
Only insensitive if it's not true. Otherwise, just the facts sir. Sounds like you found a straight talker with talent!

Gotta watch those guard rocks. I guess a well placed little sign on a stick reading Please Keep of the Grass or God'll Get Ya was out of the question.
