Where to get service? Repairs?

We are loving our 2006 Gulfstream Sunvoyager on the Workhorse Chassis. Currently in the Atlanta area for a month or so visiting family so seems like a good time to get a few projects done - new tires, possibly shocks (Koni?), oil change, lube and have someone look at the AC that blows hot.

Searched the Service Center post but eyes started crossing with how long it is.

Can anyone recommend a place to get these services in the Atlanta metro area? Or possibly what type of searching do I need to do to find a match?

Many thanks.

YES. Search the RVreviews.com website.

One such result is here: RV Service Reviews


FWIW, I think they may be an excellent place for the variety of services you seem to need.

Good truck repair facilities would be able to take care of the needs you listed - probably cheaper than dedicated RV repair shops --

I can't help on specifics, but the only one that sounds difficult to me is the air conditioner, for this you will need an a good automotive air conditioner shop who is willing to work on a motorhome. The rest should be available from any shop that sells commercial truck tires and does truck alignments.

questions to ask....

also...any particular questions to ask?

I have never had issues with auto repair. But if you mention RV many will say they do not work on them. If you say large truck that is not diesel, many say no. Just curious if any of you have some code words to keep the door open until we can discuss more details?

The code words to keep the door open are:

"I have money to burn."

If you will be in the Atlanta area for 1-2 months, you should certainly be able to find competent truck repair shops to buy tires, replace shocks and service your AC - As stated above, money talks!! Call local RV parks and ask them for referrals -always good to ask the locals --


Gas vs diesel should not be a deal breaker - be upfront and tell them what you require - if they can't perform the work you require, ask them to recommend somewhere but do stay away from RV "repair" shops - just my opinion --

If you don't mind driving north a bit, Terry LaBonte Truck Center in Greensboro NC is a great Workhorse service center. Could be too far for you though.
