Looking for good RV mechanic in Denver area

We have reviewed the RV repair vendor reviews; however, all of the reviews are very old. We need an RV repair mechanic in the Denver area. We have a 2003 Winnebago Adventurer (gas) with workhorse engine. Anyone have decent experiences in Denver that you could recommend? Hubby is frustrated trying to find someone.

Many thanks!
Ester

Ester, I don't have a recommendation, but could you indicate what help you need? A chassis issue may be different from an issue inside the coach.

Thanks! Good point! On our last trip in the mountains, we lost power going up the hills, and at one point, the engine was overheating. We limped home. We need that issue isolated and fixed, which could be as simple as a fuel filter or a variety of things. Hubby also noted that some belts look worn and require replacement. Appreciate any help with a mechanic recommendation.

My favorite place in Denver for chassis and engine work is:

TMS Truck and Bus
10151 East 107th Place
Brighton, CO 80601


Call Dave Woolverton at 303.288.0910 to make sure he is familiar with your unit. In addition to RVs and semi-trucks, his shop does all of the work for several Denver metro area school districts.

We would recommend Reliance Inc ... We had brake problems and it was summer and a holiday weekend so they were very busy BUT they worked us in and got it fixed and we were back on the road that day. Many places we called didn't have lifts for a Class A but Reliance did. We would use them again.

Thanks to both of you! We already have our MH at TMS. TMS was very responsive, and so far we're pleased. They will start work on Monday. I will post final results once they are done with the work. We will definitely keep Reliance in mind for the future. This forum is such a blessing to connect to fellow RV'ers.

A quick follow-up, as promised. We were extremely pleased with TMS Truck and Bus. They got us serviced promptly. They were able to isolate the issue to some bad plugs. When replacing the belts, they diagnosed the root cause of the improper wear, and they were able to fix that as well. The price was reasonable. Overall, very pleased with TMS and will continue to use them in the future.

Thanks again!
Ester
