How Much Is Your Local Shop Rate?

I have a 2022 DS on order and stopped by my dealer the other day. I was surprised to see several signs in the lobby as well as the service desk saying "as of 11/01/2021 the shop rate is $189.00 per hour plus costs of shop materials".

This hobby is getting to the point that is not for the faint of heart or wallet.

I have several places that are still $125. Winnebago factory service center was $135 last April. Couldn’t tell you if they raised the rates over the summer.
I’m not a Newmar owner but have a friend who is. I guess the factory service center gives a discount rate between December 1 and March 1?

The CW in the area is $145, the truck dealers are between $125 and $165.

Eric's RV in Sequim WA is $130.00 an hour. I have never been unsatisfied with my service there. Understandably you will have to use your dealer while under warranty but then.....

$189/hour here. (Colorado Springs)

About cracked up when we went to Red Bay for service at the Tiffin Mother Ship - big signs everywhere apologizing for having to raise their rates ...


... to $125/hour

Regards,

Randy

And that is Flat Rate, not how much time it really takes them to do it.....Unless they run into problems then that is an add on.
