How about trying out Foretravel up in Nacogdoches? They are close to you and can service pretty much any coach. We brought our coach up there 2 years ago, and they did a great job and the service folks are good people. The bonus is you can ogle the coaches while you are waiting for them to do their work!

When we stay at Rainbows End - Escapee Home - we use Joel E. West just a few miles north on 146 (actually just a mile or two south of town on the east side of 146). You could Google his location. They are good for routine service on WorkHorse which is what I used them for. Also good for service and repair on cars. This is my personal experience and as always YMMV

Foretravel are wonderful people, but haven't seen a WorkHorse Chassis in their yard unless it was mine parked while shopping there They are DP manufacturer.

If you want to drive to Houston, RV Masters is an authorized Workhorse shop. They do my work. Nice folks.

Since WorkHorse is defunct it is a wonder there can still be authorized WorkHorse shops. No one to authorize them, and parts have to come from the boneyard or outside manufacturers like transmissions and suspension parts. Also GM is no longer supporting the 8.1. I know there are plenty of shops that know their way around the engine and the chassis and Joel E. West is one, but that is where it ends I suspect.
