What Will Mobile Repair Companies Fix?
Mobile RV repair is when a repair technician comes to your location to repair your RV. Whether at a campsite, home, or on the side of the road, a tech will come to you for “onsite” repairs.
While some RV dealerships and traditional repair shops offer mobile services, most mobile RV repair companies are independent technicians, mechanics, or handymen with the experience and expertise necessary to repair recreational vehicles.
This is important to understand, as a mobile repair tech might be limited in what they can fix and have limited resources and parts due to their mobile nature.
That said, the type of work a mobile RV repair company can perform will vary, but typical repairs include:
- Engine and Drivetrain
- Electrical System
- Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
- Window and Door
- Preventive Maintenance and Inspections
Pretty much any repair you need. But this will vary, so it’s important to find a mobile repair tech that specializes in the type of repair you need.
Tip: Look for a mobile RV repair mechanic or technician who has completed certification through a respected RV technician training program like the RVIA or NRVTA
How Do I Find Mobile RV Repair Near Me?
When you’re in need of a mobile RV repair service, it’s essential to know where to look and who to ask.
Unfortunately, a quick Google search for “mobile RV repair near me” won’t list all the repair services nearby. Mobile RV mechanics are often one-man operations without websites or advertising budgets.
And, let’s be honest, you never need an RV repair mechanic at a convenient time, so you might not have internet access to find one.
That said, here are the best ways to find mobile RV repair services near you:
- Camper FAQs Mobile RV Repair Directory
- Online Search
- Check Local RV Dealerships
- Ask RV Park & Campgrounds Staff
- Ask Fellow RV’ers
Let’s break each of these down to help you find mobile RV repair in your area.
1. Camper FAQs Mobile RV Repair Directory
As luck would have it, you’re already at one of the best places to find mobile RV repair in your vicinity.
Our mobile RV repair directory lists over 600 companies in 450+ cities across America! And many of our listings are for RV repair mechanics that don’t have websites or an online presence at all other than our directory.
And what if you’re in an area without internet access? Simply download our mobile RV repair directory to access all of our listings no matter where you are in the country – even without WIFI!
Best of all – you’ll get free updates for life!
2. Online Search
Another option for finding mobile RV repair services, if you have internet access, is to search online.
Searching the term “mobile RV repair near me” is a good first choice, as it’s the most common phrase associated with mobile repair for RVs, and the “near me” tells the search engine you’re looking for repair in your local area.
However, if that doesn’t return good results, try a variation like “RV handyman”, for example. You can also add “near me” to the end of your search for more localized results. Variations will help you find more mechanics in your area to get the repairs you need.
And don’t forget, Bing, Yahoo, and Duck Duck Go are a few other options to try if you can’t find an RV mechanic near your location using Google.
Additionally, you can browse RV-related forums, social media groups, and review websites to gather more information and compare different mobile service providers.
3. Check Local RV Dealerships
Another excellent resource for finding mobile RV repair specialists is your local RV dealerships.
- Many RV dealerships have their own repair shops on-site and may be willing to send a tech out to repair your RV at your location.
- They may have connections with reliable on-site RV repair and maintenance services, as they often require these services themselves.
- And they oftentimes are the source of parts for local mobile mechanics, so they may be able to recommend a quality mobile repair service that they have a relationship with.
4. Ask RV Park & Campgrounds Staff
RV parks and campgrounds are also great places to find mobile RV repair recommendations.
The staff at these locations typically have experience dealing with RV-related issues and might have a list of preferred service providers.
Ask the campground staff or park management if they can suggest any reputable mobile RV mechanic services in your area.
5. Ask Fellow RV’ers
Your fellow RV’ers can be an invaluable source of information when searching for nearby mobile RV repair experts.
Whether you’re at a campground or participating in online RV forums, don’t hesitate to ask others for their recommendations.
Fellow RV’ers who have had positive experiences with mobile RV technicians in the area, whether it be for motorhome or travel trailer repair, can provide first-hand insights and suggestions.
Remember to read reviews, ask for referrals, and compare prices to ensure you’re making an informed decision and receiving the best service possible for your RV.
Pros and Cons of Mobile RV Services
If you’re considering using a mobile RV repair service for your motorhome, campervan, travel trailer, fifth-wheel trailer, pop-up camper, or even a truck camper, it’s important first to weigh the pros and cons.
While convenience and cost may ultimately be the biggest factors in your final decision, there are a few other important considerations.
As mentioned, convenience is one of the main reasons RV’ers choose a mobile service over a traditional repair shop. You don’t have to drive or have your rig towed to a shop. Instead, they come to you. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
Plus, the fact that a mobile RV repair service will come to you instead of you driving to them may be more than a convenience – it may be a necessity! Often, you can not physically drive your recreational vehicle to a repair shop. Other times there may not be a shop in your vicinity.
Furthermore, if your rig needs extensive repairs that take multiple days, with a mobile service, you can continue to live in your camper instead of having to stay elsewhere.
When you hire a mobile RV repair service, you have that technician’s personalized attention. You can easily discuss the issues and repair options with your tech, and you have direct communication with them throughout the process.
This is in stark contrast to many repair shops, especially large dealership service centers, where your RV might be one of a half dozen or more vehicles the technician is working on.
Plus, you rarely have access to the technician working on your rig at a service center. It simply makes the process less personal and adds more room for error.
If your RV isn’t mechanically sound, it might be much safer to simply have the technician come to you instead of driving it.
It also reduces the chance of causing further damage to your recreational vehicle, moving it from one location to another.
A mobile RV repair service will save you time from driving your motorhome to the repair shop and sitting at the shop waiting for it to get fixed.
Plus, as we mentioned, driving your RV to the shop can exacerbate the problem, requiring more repair time (and costs).
While some may argue that using a mobile RV repair service can save you money in fuel costs of driving your rig to a repair shop, in my experience, it’s typically MORE expensive.
Why? Because not only will the mobile repair service charge for the fuel used, but they also charge you for their time the second they start driving to your location.
Some mobile repair services will charge a single fee, while others charge a per-mile fee on top of labor and parts, so it’s important to consider this.
Here are two real-life examples of mobile RV repair rates:
- My RV Works in Joyce, Washington, charge a $3.50 per mile fee plus any tolls (with a $50 min). Then they charge a “shop rate” of $175 per hour rate once they arrive at your location and the work begins.
- Family First RV Services in central Iowa charge a $150 rate to travel to you, anywhere within their service area, and $100/hour for standard hour work and $125/hour for weekend work (billed in 30 min. increments).
*These rates may have changed since posting this.
To get a better understanding of the current standard rates in your area, it’s a good idea to contact multiple mobile RV repair providers for quotes. Comparing quotes will give you a better understanding of the market rates and help you identify the most cost-effective options.
Repair shops, especially large service centers, typically stock a large number of parts needed for common repairs, which can make repairs quick (same-day a lot of times).
Unfortunately, mobile techs will often need to locate the parts locally or order them, sometimes requiring multiple days and trips to your location to complete the repair.
While our mobile RV repair directory has over 600 companies in 450+ cities across America, it’s possible you may find yourself in an area without mobile repair coverage.
And even if you find a service in your area, they might just be a one-person operation, potentially causing delays in service if they’re busy.
Manufacturer Certification & Experience
Taking your RV to a service center specializing in your motorhome or travel trailer make and model is especially advantageous as they likely have techs certified to service your particular RV along with valuable experience.
It can be difficult to find a mobile tech specializing in your RVs specific brand with the same amount of experience that you’d find in a traditional repair shop.
Tip: If you have multiple mobile RV repair services in your area, it’s a good idea to call around and see if any of them have experience or training with your specific brand of RV.
