Fleetwood Service Center vs Spartan service center

I would like to bring our new to us 2005 Fleetwood revolution to be serviced for the first time under our ownership. I am debating between the Fleetwood factory/service center and the Spartan factory/service center. The idea is to have the experts look at everything and tell me what needs to be done and also get some maintenance done while the coach is there like the tranny fluid changed and the chassis lubed etc. Have anyone experienced both services? Would one be more beneficial than the other? I read that Spartan SC is so busy they are booked for months out. Who would be more suited to work on the CAT engine? Please share your experiences and recommendations.

When you are talking mechanical then I take mine to the large Freightliner Truck service. They can service all things chassis. Sometimes I take it to the CAT service center if it is just engine related.
Was going to take it to the large RV service center years ago, then found out they just drive it to the truck service.
Good luck, it is nice to get it serviced for a base line so you know what is right. Enjoy

We were very impressed with the Freightliner service center in Gaffney SC. It's a bit of a hassle to get an appointment but they're very good and reasonably priced. We had a 60K service done on our 2002 Expedition and they found many issues our normal truck guy didn't.
