(Way off topic )5er bodywork

Brad & Jacolyn

Recommended Posts

   We are full timers and are in Edinburg, Tx until April 1st. On our way down here a couple of days ago we blew out a tire on the 5th wheel (HitchHiker Champagne) and tore up the drivers side. I have not got any answers from the insurance company yet so I'm waiting on them. Does anyone know of of a place down here to get the bodywork done without having to go all the way back to Chanute, Ks? Any suggestions would be appreciated.  

Thank you.

These folks do excellent work.  The added benefit is being able to spend time in Bandera.


My apologies...I don't read too good...

We've talked to others who've had work done at the place spindrift linked above.  All had good things to say.

We'll be in Bandera for the month of Feb. if you care to stop by.

 The Hitch hiker is old school real construction as I recall? I don't know that you have to go to an rv specific for repair of that construction. I'd ask around about ma/pa remodelers local to your stay. Some of those folks can do wonders, especially if your Hitch hiker is as I remember them to be, actual lumber construction. Probably depends on the vintage year of your coach.

I'm a work'n on it.

Darrell wouldn't let any out of his shop because he couldn't get any more.

Does that make sense? If he's not going to sell them, why have them?
