Wheel Alignment in South Florida

I just replaced all 6 tires on my 2017 Thor Quantum WS31. (Class C Ford E450 SD). 31 feet long
I can't find anyplace in South Florida that can do a wheel alignment.
Have been to 6 Truck Service places, 2 Ford Commercial Truck dealers, but no one is able to do it. How do they perform it, when lasers on front wheels, can't see the rear tires, due to the Motorhome box?


Any suggestions? Thanks

Not sure these meet your definition of “South Florida” but Josam Products, 8849 Exchange Drive, Orlando, FL is highly recommended over on the Entegra forum. Also, Mr Frontend, Punta Gorda was recommended by others on the Entegra forum. Good luck.

Thanks, but Orlando is 225 miles from me. I'm between Miami and Fort Lauderdale.

It is a thousand miles from me, and I would strongly consider making the drive vs dealing with the alignment shops that are within 100 miles of here where it is as bad going out the door as when you take it in. Josams is probably in the top 3 or 4 motorhome alignment and suspension specialist in the US, the rest are all along the west coast.

I enjoy telling this story! I bought an old Toyota and had everything replaced on the front end. The guy that did the work told me not to take it to anyplace but West Coast Alignment in Ft Myers.



So I set up an appointment and go, like walking into a 50's movie set, all the staff needed was packs of Camels rolled up in their T shirt sleeves. So anyway the Toyota will not fit in the bay so they aligned it in the parking lot!!


They have since moved to a different location and the showroom looks like a junk store, but they sure do know their business.



They also do online balancing and tire shaving, which few do in this day and age.



Was going to post a link, they do not even have a website!

My one experience with Florida spring and axle was they are very expensive.


Went there for an appointment to have my frame inspected. Was told 2 to 3 hours and there rate was ??? I think $125 hour. Went to Genes auto frame and towing in Ft Myers. 30 minutes $49!



I have a small motorhome and do not know how big Genes can do, I would call them first to find out. They are an old shop and have a good reputation.
