Rot Under the Skin

This week we’ve been repairing the front of this trailer from severe water damage. It’s easy to forget, but a yearly roof inspection is a must. In a short amount of time the seams in the roof of this RV took a beating from the sun and cold weather. It eventually cracked enough to let large amounts of water seep in and under the outer skin. Once inside, the water kept everything soaking wet and caused extensive rot damage. It could have been a lot worse, but this is still a fairly big job that will be quickly restored and returned to the owners in as good as new condition.

Re-roofing an RV

Re-roofing an RV is a big job that can only be completed one way, the right way. This one also took on additional damage when the roof was torn apart from hitting an overhang, ouch! But now, it’s as good as new with special thanks to our great crew!

 

Newmar Coach is As-Good-As-New

The initial work on this beautiful Newmar coach was posted a short while back and today we’re so happy this big job is completed. The siding was perfectly replaced and the color matching is flawless. Our customer could hardly believe their eyes when they saw their coach looking as good as new after a terrible run-in with a far reaching roof overhang. We are so proud of the high level of craftsmanship we have at our shop!

Class C Rear Ended, Big Damage.

This Class C was towed to our shop today after being rear ended. The estimate for the repair would have been much greater if the rear end impact had damaged the floor of the RV, but it did not. The black water tank, plumbing and supporting metal framework was destroyed. The resulting front impact would have also been very costly to repair if the suspension and or radiator had been damaged, but again, they are good. We’ve got our work cut out for us on this one, but nothing we haven’t done many times before. Stay tuned for the “after it’s repaired” pictures.

A Class C Gets a New Cabover

We just completed repairing this Class C. The cabover was rotting from the inside out due to old caulking that had cracked around places like the overhead air vent and was leaking for what must have been at lease a couple years. With damage this serious and far reaching we had to remove and rebuild the entire cabover to it’s original specs inside and out. From unusable to being brand new, the owners were overjoyed to get their RV back in time for their next trip and looking so good. A special thanks to my awesome crew for another job well done!
