Recommendation for Collision Repair Shop

I have a 2006 Fleetwood Discovery 39S that was rear-ended. I live in New Jersey and am researching for a top quality collision repair shop.

I can't find any motorhome collision repair shops in my area and it looks like most of them are located out in the Indiana area which is a 600 mile drive. My coach is my baby and I'm willing to drive to get a quality repair.

Has anyone had any experience with in Indiana with Pro Custom Paint, Mike's Custom Paint or the REV Factory Service Center?

Any other recommendations for a facility would be appreciated.

Thanks for your assistance.

Regards,

Mike

Go to Country Classics Auto Body up in Sussex. They have a 60' paint booth, RV alignment rack, etc. Did top quality work on my RV front nose.

76 County Hwy 639
Sussex, NJ 07461
(973) 545-0460

It was about 1.5 hour ride each way for me from Hunterdon County but well worth the ride.

Good luck!

We know two good ones in IL, but it sounds as if you got closer recommendations. What I would add is why can't your insurer recommend good places near you? that is what happened in our case (plus other recommendations of course).

Thanks for the recommendations everyone.

After checking both locations out and speaking to Brian the manager at Connecticut Motor Cars & Coaches today I am confident that they have the facility and experience to repair my coach to like new condition. From speaking to Brian they have quite an operation and the experience I'm looking for. As of now I'm scheduled for a November 10, 2016 drop off date.

My plan is to bring my coach to Campbell Freightliner in October to get the exhaust system repaired/replaced and also have them thoroughly check my Freightliner chassis out as well as my 330 Cat engine and my Allison transmission for any hidden damage.

I will keep everyone posted on progress and will post before and after pictures if anyone is interested.

Regards,

Mike
