Apalachee RV Center Auburn GA

Has anyone had any experience with Apalachee RV Center in Auburn Georgia for Spartan Chassis or coach problems?

Since no body has answered your question, all I can say is that I think they have a good reputation for honesty. Not sure about their status with Spartan. More reviews are HERE: RV Service Reviews

Thanks for the replies and links. My searches have only found 3 reviews, 1 excellent and 2 less so. The 2 not so good never really went for service, they got turned off by their initial phone contact.

My local Spartan shop was less than interested in a motorhome.

I have found a reliable talented local coach service center and have had great service on the chassis from my local Allison shop but really wanted a good once over on the chassis by an authorized Spartan service center. It would also be nice to have a one stop shop.

I see their advertisements between Lawrenceville and Monroe on 316. The RV dealer that was in Lawrenceville (they are only rental now) recommended them for service. I have not been there

There is a big dealer with a pretty knowledgeable service dept at the Hamilton Mill exit off I-85. Rock Quarry Rd East. RV World (of Georgia) I believe the address will be Buford, Ga but they are no in Buford.
I was searching for a towed brake system and talked to their guy about an installation. Unlike Camping World, they told me I could do it myself with a few tools and patience.

Well, if you are looking for an alternative, I had a great experience with my Spartan K2 chassis inspection and full service at NIRVC in Lawrenceville, right off 316 on Hurricane Shoals Rd. in my opinion, they are a class act, not the cheapest but quite competent. The chassis tech I had was Troy, and he was very through.

Spartan sent us there for an emergency repair when our digital dash went blank on a trip.

They got us right in and on our way in a couple hours. Seemed like a smaller shop, but very nice people and they seemed to communicate well with Spartan.

When my generator starter went out everyone I talked to recommended Apalachee RV. Given the time of year, I expected to have to wait months to get things fixed, but they had me in and out in two days. They will be my "go to" service center until I go full-time in two years.

I haven't had any work done there but I can tell you I tried to get them to do some work and they were SKY HIGH on price. I tried twice.. once to get an AF1 installed and they quoted about 3X what was expected and the other time was to get trailing arms replaced and new airbags installed -- this time it was obvious they did not want to do the work because of the outrageous pricing. I have taken them off my list of places to even consider.
