RV Services and Repairs
The larger the vehicle, the more parts it has. The size of the vehicle also determines how much strain those parts are under. Together, this means that there is a lot that can go wrong with an RV. For any RV enthusiast, the number one goal is to keep their vehicle safe and on the road, and doing this means coming in for regular general servicing.
What is regular servicing? Think of it like a yearly physical for your RV or travel trailer. We check the vehicle thoroughly to spot any areas that are problematic or could become problematic in the near future. We then do what is needed to maintain the functionality and safety of your vehicle. Some parts of your RV that require regular servicing are the:
- Wheels/tires, and
- Various fluids (e.g., engine oil, transmission fluid)
Our point-by-point inspection service is affordable and highly detailed. If there is something wrong or an emergent problem, we will catch it. We have been completing general servicing for RVs for over four decades, and you can trust in us.
While regular servicing will help to reduce your need for repairs, eventually there will be items on your RV that break and need to be repaired or replaced. We are able to repair and replace all items that are part of your RV: interior, exterior, or automotive. Our technicians are experts at delivering general repairs that deliver lasting results in minimal time and at the lowest possible cost to you.
Because RVs are specialized vehicles, they require mechanics with specialized training. At our center, we have all the tools and parts that are unique to working with RVs, allowing us to work quickly and deliver the results you seek. We have experience working with all the major RV manufacturers, as well as most of the less-known ones, including:
- Custom Coach
- Dynamax, and
An unfortunate truth in the RV world is that you are at a greater risk of a collision than you are in a smaller vehicle. This is because it is harder for out-of-control vehicles to avoid it and because it’s harder to steer around potential dangers. While we don’t want this to discourage you from chasing your dream of living life on the road, we do want you to be prepared to deal with collision repair at some point.
Your RV is a major investment, and for most owners, part of a dream they have had since they were young. No one wants to write off their RV as a loss. When you come to us for collision repair, our goal is to find a way to get your RV road safe once again. Because we are a major parts provider, chances are we will have everything needed to repair and restore your RV. With our repair service, we can address all issues, including:
- Window/skylight damage
- Roof damage
- Fiberglass/aluminum damage
- Paint damage, and
- Interior damage affecting materials and/or the vehicle structure
If we determine that your vehicle is not salvageable or the cost of repairing and restoring it simply isn’t going to be justified by the end result, we can help you dispose of the RV. In either case, we will work with your insurance provider to ensure you are getting the maximum benefits from your plan.
Why own an RV? Because it allows you to take your home on the road. But just because your home is on wheels doesn’t mean you should settle for anything less than a comfortable, attractive, and functional space.
And just like any other home, there are interior elements of your RV that will occasionally require repair. Elements that may need repair include:
- Plumbing systems
- Appliances, and
- Electrical systems
While it may be tempting to deal with certain problems rather than repair them, we encourage you to seek repairs to interior elements as soon as possible. Not only will it keep your RV comfortable, it will also help to prevent the problem from becoming larger, keeping costs down as a result.
RV Remodels and Restoration
Sometimes what you want fixed isn’t necessarily broken—it just isn’t working for you any longer. Maybe you need more storage inside your RV, want a better equipped kitchen, or want to revamp the look of your RV from the outside. No matter your goal. We have the items needed to change any aspect of the interior or exterior of your recreational vehicle. Come to us with a design in mind or work with us to craft one that is perfect for you.
For many, owning an RV is a lifelong dream, but due to finances, it can seem unobtainable. However, purchasing a used RV is one way to make the dream happen while still keeping to a budget. With that said, it is important that you take certain precautions, otherwise you may end up spending more money to get it on the road safely than you would have if you had purchased one new.
Many used RVs on the market have been in a collision or have otherwise been damaged. In some cases, sellers will try to hide this rather than disclose it up front. Before you invest in a used RV, you should have it brought to us at Farace so we can complete a point-by-point inspection of it. As part of this inspection, we will make a list of all problems or emergent problems and present it to both you and the owner, allowing you to go into the purchase fully informed.
RVs are not the right choice for every person or family who want to take their home on the road. For those looking for a compromise, travel trailers are a great option. These trailers offer the comforts of home, but rather than have a motor and steering components, you hitch it up to another vehicle and tow it to your destination. Many people prefer them to RVs because they are easier to move and allow you to have an independent vehicle to travel in once you set up the trailer.
Farace RV is just as experienced with travel trailer repairs as we are with RV repairs. Our team is familiar with the majority of manufacturers and can repair any model you bring in. For interior and exterior travel trailer repairs, choose us.
Diesel Engine Repairs
Recreational vehicles almost always feature diesel engines. As these engines are different from standard engines, you need to have them repaired by technicians who specialize in them. Whether your engine is in an RV or any other vehicle, the Farace team can tune it up and repair it as needed.
