Is this for a warranty repair?
If not, then it doesn't have to be 'Tiffin approved" at all.
Any ole body shop that will work on an RV can do the work.
Nothing special about RV paint. Same as Car Paint. Just bigger.

If it is for warranty, ask Tiffin.

Approved by who to work on Tiffin? Tiffin themselves? If they have to give their approval for a body shop to work on their products, why not call them and ask for a list of shops "approved" by them?

My thought is that any reputable RV body shop would be able to do a good job on any brand whether they are actually approved by the Tiffin factory or not.

However, two suggestions from my notes:

1. NIRVC (an iRV2 sponsor and vendor) Atlanta's body shop, especially, has a very good reputation and I'm sure would do excellent work on a Tiffin although I don't believe they are a dealership for new Tiffins.

Here's a video you can watch on their Atlanta body shop facilities:

NIRVC Motorhome Collision Repair, RV Paint & Body Inspections, & other exterior RV repair services!


Contact information at bottom of this page:

2. Spartan RV & Marine has relatively good reputation and is just northeast of Atlanta,

Thank you for the very kind words @theroc! At NIRVC we are trying to be unique in that we have a paint standard that is stricter than any of the manufacturer's paint standards used to paint your rig, it is very similiar to that used in the auto industry. We are proud that we are trying to change the RV industry to put the consumer into a position where they no longer have to accept what is shipped to them. This is why we post the standard right on our website. In Dallas this week, we had a customer purchase a new coach, ask us for the standard, and then used that standard to inspect his purchase - THIS IS OUR GOAL! Our Atlanta location has a Paint and Body Manager with three decades of collision experience, he has seen it all! I am certain he can restore any coach to its former glory!

My friend, others have said it and I’m going to amplify it. Get thyself hooked up with NIRVC. Authorized Tiffin dealer means nothing where body work is concerned.
