Where To Have A Banks System Installed

I Live in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area and need to replace the exhaust system on my 2007 W22 chassis. The original parts look to be available but expensive. The Banks system looks a better choice but can't find an installer. I called Lazy Days and they said they won't work on motorhomes older than 2011. Also, looking at the Banks system parts in their ad it looks like the tail pipe doesn't go back far enough to clear my slide out. I think that can be figured out but I haven't found anyone willing to install it. I was hoping someone here would have an idea of where to get this done.

Call muffler shops?
It is what they do, either order it yourself or get them too.
If they are on the up, they shouldn't have any issues with you supplying the main exhaust.
They can add their own hangars etc to finish it.
I've done it on a few vehicles.
Motorhomes, no but to muffler guys its all the same.

Lazy Days would only screw it up, I personally think you’re lucky they refused. You need a good exhaust shop who knows how to deal with broken studs. I installed ARP stainless exhaust studs in mine with anti-seize.

If you're not installing yourself, find a mechanic that has some experience, not someone who will do on the job training.

I bought Banks headers for my previous Trek, and a friend advised I would pay as much for the installation as the product itself - and he was correct. However, I was fortunate to find a mechanic working independently. He did a very good on a project that I just wasn't ready to tackle.
