Know of a good trustworthy Mechanic in South Florida

We're looking for a good trustworthy mechanic for our 2002 Winnebago Brave somewhere in the Southwest Florida area.
We'd like to have someone just go over it - mechanically speaking - to evaluate it's overall condition and help us set up a maintenance schedule. We just got the rig a few months ago from Camping World in Ft Myers and we don't have much confidence in their service dept.

Also wondering if anyone has ever used liquid roofing to re-coat their roof. I saw a youtube video on a liquid roll on roofing product. Looked good to me but thought I should see what the community thinks. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Hi Webetravelin,
Because the OP mentioned Ft. Myers, can I assume you are in south west Florida? If so, North Trail RV is a place to consider. They are not cheap, but they have serviced my coach (what I can not fix myself) since it was new.

I'm at their facility right now having a couple of items looked at before the big summer trip.

Go to RV dealers Florida - motorhomes - Newmar, Tiffin, Fleetwood, Winnebago, Itasca, Keystone RV, Jayco, Pleasure Way for more information. If you call, ask for Rob Sanders. He is one of the better service writers.

If you need any front end work or chassis work done Mr. Front end in Punta Gorda is great. Mine's there now.

This is a Mobile RV service technician, reasonable rates at least by my standard, She's gone north (Flint, MI) for the summer by now but .. she winters in Flordia.

She's done some work on my rig and several of my friends in Michigan. No complaints.

Thanks for the great tips on finding someone I can take my rig to when it comes to repairs. I also was told that Tamiani Ford On Airport Blvd in Naples is a good place to take the rig in for general things. So thanks again for everyone's thoughts
