That sounds about right with dealers locally or RV shops here. I take mine to a mechanic who charges me the regular rate he does for all vehicles. About $45 per hour. Small local indepentant shop.

$95 to $125 an hour at dealers is norm. Really depends on local economy and just what they can get away with.

Never have taken mine to the manufacture of the coach.
Have used the chassis manufacturer at Griffin.
And that was a few years ago. $85 at that time.
Not sure now what they charge.

Last time it was in any repair shop was September 2009
At a Coach Care shop for a Lift Pump. Believe it was around the $85 rate also.

All the other repairs needed since then, I could do. My rate is $0 a hour.

We do most of our work and don't usually get our parts from RV stores we get them usually from auto stores. A lot of parts are interchangeable. The only time we did pay for service was to get the oil and tranny fluids changed and have them do a look over on what else might need to be done. That was at $125 an hour, it was done fast and they did fix several other things with out charging us, a list of other minor concerns and gave us books and info on the Allison. So I guess in the end you could say it cost us less, lol.

The last time we took our 01 Adventurer to the factory in Forest City Iowa the labor rate was $95.00 per hour. That's about what all the independent garages and dealerships in our area charge.

The big advantages of going to the factory were no lost time waiting for parts, no training issues since all the technicians are "factory trained", and no variation from the quoted prices even if the job took longer than expected.

I doubt we'll ever go to a Winnebago dealership for service. All the dealers in our area are about the same distance as the factory. We do occasionally take it to the Ford dealer for chassis work, but I trust them as much as the factory in that respect. Their labor rate is the same as the factory.
