The trouble with looking for water damage on the roof of a motorhome is that at first glance, what you see is most often not what you get. Some well intending RV’ers jump up on the roof and take a look all around for cracks and other places where water can seep in. But, it takes a trained eye to see things that may look OK, but is actually on the brink of letting lots of water pass through. The roof of this RV took on lots of damage and luckily, we caught it before the damage went down the wall. Bring your RV in for an expert roof inspection to avoid the unexpected.
As you can see, this Fleetwood Discovery smacked something hard. Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt. On the other hand, it’s likely we’ll find some internal damage beyond what is externally obvious. We’ll carefully remove all damaged parts so that a very close and conclusive inspection can be made. Our goal is to return this motorhome to it’s factory specs as soon as we can, and without overlooking “anything” that was broken from the collision. Our years of experience gives us the special knowledge and best direction to take for discovering the severity and extent of damage. Next, we devise a direct and efficient plan to restore these homes-on-wheels to their original luster, as if they were our own. Keep a look out for the “after pictures” of this RV.
This year is one of our busiest years for re-roofing motorhomes and trailers! It may look like an easy job to remove all of the vents and skylights and then tear off the roof, but there are definitely a few do’s and don’ts and several tricks of the trade to get the job completed perfectly so the new roof is durable and long lasting. But don’t forget, all if this can be undone if the roof is not inspected each year and resealed where needed!
For older and sometimes newer motorhomes, it’s very common that RV manufacturers will no longer stock cabin doors, fiberglass moldings, siding, windows, and slide-outs. So, early on, we began fabricating what was either not available or that which would take too long to produce and be delivered from the manufacturer. Here’s a slide-out in process of being fitted back into the RV after it was fabricated in our shop from scratch. When this job is completed, the Antaya RV will look as good as new!
Today everyone’s working hard to wrap-up another busy week at the Shop. This year is already busier that last year. Here’s just a few of our jobs in-process and on the schedule for next week, and some we’re planning on finishing up in about seven days. Wishing everyone a great weekend!
It’s always sad to see something beautiful bashed up, especially if it belongs to you. At Almaden RV we know how precious Coaches and RVs are to our customers. It’s their home on wheels and it’s their baby. So, we intend on always returning our customer’s motorhome back to its original condition as soon as we can. This Monaco smacked into something that required a bit more than body work, but my crew completed all of the repairs on budget and on time. You can bet the owners were delighted with the results and so are we.
We’re getting a bit of cold weather this week before Christmas, and my dedicated crew never misses a beat, rain or shine. I’m very proud of the quality of workmanship each person delivers at Almaden RV. It doesn’t matter how difficult the job or schedule is, the knowledge and performance of my staff is next to none.
During the Holiday Season more than ever, our thoughts turn gratefully to those who have made our progress possible. And in this spirit we say, simply but sincerely,
Thank You and Best Wishes for the Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
Chris and Kathy Caprino & Family and All the Employees at Almaden RV.
The owners were shocked to learn how extensive the water damage was on their awesome Toy Hauler. They noticed a soft spot in the floor, but didn’t realize that the damage started way up at the window and traveled all the way down and across the floor to the other side. Luckily, they have good insurance that’s covering most all of the repairs. We’ll get this RV back on the road and in perfect condition in time for their next trip!
