How do I find a decent mechanic?

I want to have a sway bar installed. How do I find a mechanic? Anyone ever set up service work on the road? I know where I am going to be so thinking I can just have the work done there. The shops here in Phoenix are months out and I question the mobile operators. Thoughts?

Buy tools, train yourself?

Jot a good answer, but sometimes that is the best answer.

I would wait, then you have some familiarity with mechanic shops and can return if anything requires tweaking or redone.

If you could do it yourself, you'd be almost as good as a mobile mechanic who is feeding his family off his own work. I have found the two I used to be great. Both had extensive experience in rv shop work before heading out on their own. And they charge less, because they have less overhead and they get to keep it all themselves. I found most shops are full of tech school grads with little experience who don't have their name on the work. Overpriced and ineffective. CCo and RV Doctor in the SLC area, and they come to your rig and fix it while you're living in it.
