Reputable RV Repair Facilities

We're full-time RVers currently residing near Mesquite, NV. We have a crack in our sidewall at the bottom of our 5th wheel bedroom slide out that has reappeared after being "fixed" and we need to have it, as well as the underlying cause, permanently repaired. Does anyone have any recommendations for a reputable RV repair facility near Las Vegas, Phoenix, or Salt Lake City?

First welcome to iRV2. From the description of crack, these are usually due to frame problems in the front of the trailer. Do you by chance have one of the infamous Lippert frames that likes to crack.

Which ever shop you find, I'd make sure that they are well qualified to handle trailer frame issues.

Thanks. It's a custom frame from New Horizons and they're paying to have it repaired by someone near here so that we don't have to go back to the factory in Junction City, KS. I have a potential list of possible places and just wondered if anyone had some experience, good or bad, before I make any decisions.

Thanks for the link to RV Service Review. It was very helpful and I'll add it to my reference list.

You're welcome. I gave my shop a good review and emailed it to the service manager.
