Here’s a quick shot of a beautiful new roof job going on in our shop this week. The A/C and a few new vents are installed, got a few more vents to go and a final calking. After that, this RV will be ready to hit the road and gracefully endure just about any weather dear Mother Nature may have.
This Coach needed the flooring replaced around the slide-out. To do the job correctly, we must completely remove the entire slide-out from the coach. After that it’s a basic flooring job, but re-installing the slide-out is not a job for the faint of heart and inexperienced. This is a common job at Almaden RV, so obtaining perfect alignment and fit when the slid-out is fully retracted is not a problem as well as a free flowing full extension.
A panel on this huge luxury coach was severely damaged and it’s a good size job to replace. Our technician is carefully cutting, bending and shaping this sheet of metal into proper form and fit. After that, it will be carefully riveted into place for a secure and perfect factory finish. Then off to paint. Over time, we have completed many jobs like this and received great customer satisfaction, so no job is too big. When it’s all said and done, this luxury coach will look as good as new.
Here’s John working on repairing the bottom end of a cabinet. He’s also a good welder, but interior restoration, repair and remodeling are some of his specialties.
I’m proud to have such a highly qualified group of factory trained and hard working people. Everyone is proud of the the work they do and they always strive to out-do themselves. The energy in our shop is vibrant and positive. We enjoy any new challenges and constantly perfect any routines. I can’t say enough good things about my crew and the great job they do for out customers! Carry on…
Some of our customers find it hard to believe that we can repair what appears to be catastrophic damage to their RV, quickly and affordably. This Class C had some serious water damage over the cab, note most of the cabover has been removed and see our tech working inside. We have an eye for perfection and return to our customers an RV that looks as good as new with quick turnaround times. If in doubt, give us a call or visit us today for a no cost estimate. You might be pleasantly surprised and end up leaving it with us for repair.
This week we’re working on a Class A that backed up a bit too far and cracked up the left rear section of the their home on wheels. The prep work is almost completed and will soon go into the paint booth. Color matching is very important when blending a fresh factory color into the older paint, but not a problem in our shop. For many years, we’ve been the “go-to” business for RV collision repairs and refresh paint jobs.
Here’s a trailer that caught the rear edge on something while in a turn and it severely ripped up the panel. It’s being replaced, but after the supporting members are straightened out. Then after the panel is installed all that’s left is to do is to caulk the joints and buff everything out so it looks as good as new.
This “Medical Care RV” came in last week for a big repair job. The Class A was wrapped in this beautiful Medical Care theme and was returned to the owner via a tow truck. Unfortunately, the driver didn’t have someone spot him while loading the RV and as the front entered the ramp the bottom dragged on the road so hard that it ripped the back end apart. Almaden RV has repaired may motorhomes with damage similar to this, so we expect to restore the Med Care motorhome to as-good-as-new status asap.
Last week we prepped and painted two Class A motorhomes with damage to the cabins and wheel wells. This kind of damage is fairly common especially with newer drivers due to negotiating the length of the RV around a corner, which will sometimes catch the best drivers of guard. The good news is that most insurance companies will cover this unfortunate event and Almaden RV has tons of experience repairing everything and even fabricating cabin doors if needed to “as good as new” status.
