Yes, yes, yes! I have bookmarked Justin's website. My husband is the handiest guy in the world but knows nothing yet about RV's. We would love being able to call Justin and have him talk us through some problems!

Talk about timing! I had a nightmare experience Labor day Friday! The Thursday before Labor day, I was having blind spot cameras and a general maintenance done in my RV. The tech told me if he took my RV home, he could have it done for me by Friday. I said that'd be great, my RV had been in the shop for two weeks having a general fix up and going over, as I just bought it (used). Come the next day - Friday before Labor day, the tech texted me and said he felt sick and felt he couldn't bring it back as he felt it wasn't safe for him to drive feeling like he did. I told him I was uncomfortable with him not bringing my RV back to shop and I would come and pick it up at his house. He texted me and said he would "100%" have my RV back at the shop that afternoon. Long story short, I didn't get my RV back until 10 P. M. that night after reporting my class B campervan as stolen!! All kinds of lessons learned !!!

I have a LTV Unity on order. Does it make sense to have an inspector look at a new unit before acceptance?

Very good interview with Justin… He should start a YouTube channel as he seems a natural in front of the camera… and it would certainly generate business !!!

Someone that hard working and skilled probably has as much work as he can handle! Especially with all these new RVs being rushed off the production lines.

Justin can come to live in Knoxville, TN. It's a very nice area with 4 distinct seasons, lots to do and nice people. We need him and his skills.

175-300 an hour is highway robbery. A tech is supposed to know how to fix issues. That’s your job. My grandson is a MB tech and learns by going to schools and experience.

Watched the Apple announcement about the new iPhone 13 camera and video capabilities and first thing I thought about was how excited Mike must be about it! 😀 Looks great for filming your videos.

Hi there. I just bought a brand new 2022 Jayco Jayflight camper. My husband and I used it for the first time ever. As soon as I sat down on the dinette, I got a bruise. At the end of the trip I had more bruises. The problem is the hardware they used on the storage doors. The handles are square and pointy and stick out a lot. Any suggestions?

Great show , always good content. Best advise for everyone. Stay away from big corporations. They make a big plastic pos . That is broken brand new and they know it and they don’t care . Buy from small businesses that make their own RV . Or suffer.

We are pllanning to order a Panoramic for that very reason... We need sleeping/safe seating for 3-4 and although the Winnebago Ekko is super appealing (huge water tank, convertible dry bath, 4-season use) I am so worried about quality control...

If you want new class B there are lots of small shops that will put them together custom for you, but the trailers are very different. Qualitiy control is really becoming an issue.

We've always felt smaller, family-owned-and-run businesses are great to choose. Thanks for your comment!

His rates are shocking,... But I understand them after thinking about it for a minute... All their overhead,... all of it goes into his hourly rate... I would pay it just knowing my problem will be fixed... or if not,... no charge... I have had my problems NOT fixed so many times (and still had to pay)... Grrrrrr.... 😎

Hey Zigg! I'm competitive with shops in my area. So if you really think about it. Paying the same for me to come to you is not that expensive. I drive my shop to you! If you ever need anything please hit me up anytime.

Yes. Paying for something that isn't fixed is not good. We like his policy, too.
