What Is an RV Repair Shop?

An RV repair shop is similar to a car mechanic. However, they have technicians with expertise in all things RV-related. The intricate systems in an RV are unlike other vehicles. Many of these repair shops can handle almost any issue you might experience in an RV.

Frequenting an RV repair shop can be rather expensive. Labor rates typically range from $100 to $175 per hour. Some repairs can take several hours, and you’ll also consider the costs of any necessary parts. However, if you cannot repair yourself, you might not have any other choice.
