Had my oil changed at a Walmart at the car price. I got pro-rated for the unused dino oil and got Mobil 1 off the shelf plus my choice of filter. They said it's just like a car only bigger. Same as my thoughts. JM2...

We've had the oil changed on the road many times without a problem. With our old motorhome the recommended change interval was 5,000 miles using synthetic blend. The current one has a change interval of 7,500 miles also with synthetic blend. We've never had to go more than 3,000 miles with the old one or 5,000 miles with the new one before we found a place that could do the job.

We've had it done by a contractor at the campground, at Jiffy Lube, a Ford garage, a construction company repair facility, and several independent truck repair shops. We always ask at the campground desk when we check in to see if there's a place nearby that can handle the job.

As a side note most campgrounds don't allow any maintenance to be performed onsite unless it's an emergency. Even then most times it has to be done by a mobile technician. They don't want amateurs attempting a project only to have it fail and/or create a big mess.

Speedco, heavy truck service centers, can probably do it also.

Unless your trips are more than 5,000 miles, you should be okay without the need for an oil change. Frequent oil changes are recommended for severe duty use like stop and go driving, pulling a trailer, or dusty conditions. Today's oils are capable of 7500 miles under normal duty use like highway driving. If you are really concerned, just carry an oil change bucket, an oil filter and wrench and the recommended oil. I don't need a jack to get under my rig.
