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.
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!
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.

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.
