We had an awful experience with the RV repair place (I think it was also called American but is not associated) across the road. They misdiagnosed the problem, cut into the sheet metal under the trailer and gave us a ridiculous estimate saying the tank needed to be replaced
Please post your experience at RV Service Reviews
It helps the next guy looking for repair service... more than likely while traveling.

We've always stayed at American. Most recently in one of the newer pull-thru's which are not as level as I would have liked. While in the area, we drove through Stagecoach Stop RV in Rio Rancho. Very nice also. That's probably where we will stay next time. Check rvparkreviews.

Sorry for the thread hijack...
and I'm still hoping rvparkreviews gets to the point of being the gold standard...
but I looked up Palmetto Island State park near Abbeville, Louisiana and a group went to visit it -
we drove through it and NONE would have stayed there - I mean 12 out of 12 would not consider it.... and it has 10/10 ratings on rvparkreviews !!!

We even took the time to rate it and write an honest opinion and our review is no longer on there.... so what good is it's ratings?

I even went back to the email from rvparkreviews to ensure I was looking at the right review and the link is no longer valid....
If you really are sad and think nobody cares, just try missing a few payments ! '11 Monaco Diplomat 43DFT RR10R pushed by a Demco Excali-Bar II hitch which is pushed by a '14 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport.

I see the Stagecoach has a pool.

Any comments on where to stay are appreciated.
Google a hot air balloon group~ Albuquerque hosts of the biggest prettiest balloon races. I'm sure people who go via coach will know the best places to stay.

I have used rvparkreviews.com for 6 1/2 years and have only found 1 Park that was over rated. The reviews were all 6 and 7 but we thought it was a 1.

We volunteer at the Balloon Fiesta. There are 4-5 rigs that we meet at Enchanted Trails for a couple of days before the Fiesta, to prepare for the 10 days of dry camping at the Fiesta.
They have shade, pool, laundry, propane, and a some neat vintage RV that you can rent.
And they are Passport America before OCT.
