Looking for Professional Refrig install

I am thinking about changing my Norcold out for a Residential.
I am looking for recommendations for a professional changeout. I have a 2009 Winnebago Journey 34Y, but that may not be that relevant.
Just looking for recommendations for a good outfit to do the changeover to residential refrigerator.

If you let people know what area of the country you are in we might be able to suggest folks who are relatively nearby. My recommendation of a great guy in Spokane who did ours might not work for you.

I should have mentioned this in the OP . . . I am a single, full-timer and the location of the installation is not really an issue. Have Motorhome-Will Travel!

I just had my Norcold replaced with a residential at Camping World in Gainsville, Ga. They did a phenomenal job.

I recommend Master Tech RV in Elkhart, IN. We spend July of '10 at their location while they replaced our flooring, a sofa, another sofa with a custom credenza and a residential frig. Everything they did was and still is above our expectations. Their workmanship is above reproach. We stayed in our motorhome all but 3 nights while they did the bath and bedroom.

If you are interested, call Jack Harris at (866) 895-4556. They won't be able to give you a fixed price because motorhomes are so different but Jack will give you a range and I can attest that I found their pricing to be fair.

I just had my Norcold switched out for a Samsung RF197 last week. I used Iron Horse RV Service out of San Antonio, TX and was very impressed with the work. I'm traveling for the winter and was in Texas and heard good things about the company. I liked that they had hookups and you could stay there while the work was being done. They have done several switch outs to residential fridges and in fact the owner of the company switched out his own motorhome. Quality of work was excellent and price was reasonable. Glad I had it done professionally as it was a lot of work, I wouldn't have wanted to do it myself.

I can recommend two - in Indiana and Ohio, though fairly close to each other.

From Trees to These, a RV cabinet specialty shop in Decatur, IN. Greg Mies is the proprietor.
Cruising America RV in Celina, OH. Kevin Mallory is the man.

Both shops do outstanding work at rational prices and both have done work on my own coach, though not a fridge replacement. Each has done a fridge on a friends coach, however, and both were very pleased.

We're going to be in the PNW this summer and might be interested in doing the replacement.

If you're going to be in the NW, I strongly recommend Custom RV Remodeling & Repair @ Truline RV in Spokane. They did ours plus lots of other stuff and we are very pleased. Truline is a relatively small, family-owned and operated company and we consider the folks there our friends. If you are serious, do plan ahead and get on their schedule.

We'll be hanging out in the western part of WA in early summer so let us know when you're up that way.

Joel

I use Best Value RV in Denton, Texas. On I-35 just North of town. I know they have done these. They replaced the cooling unit on my Norcold and have done lots of other stuff for me and we're always very happy with their work. I don't recommend Camping World that is located just South of them. I'll never go back there for any type of service. Maybe for accessories.
