RV Support Businesses in the East Bay Area
« on: December 01, 2016, 09:04:55 am »
Hi Folks,

Was just re-reading old posts, many from Pax in Northern California.

Our absolute-best RV service/sales place is:
San Leandro RV And Trailer
15180 E 14th St
San Leandro, CA 94578
The go-to guy is Greg.  We've used his expertise for a decade
or so.  Highly recommended for non-Ford issues.  He most recently
installed our solar panel.

The folks at C & E were recommended by Greg for Ford issues.  They are at
C & E Auto & Truck Repair
1366 Doolittle Dr
San Leandro, CA 94577
Only used them once, and we'll definitely go back.

We bought our 2350 used, and found the steering wobbly.  These folks
put new ball joints on for us, since the Ford doesn't have grease fittings
as the chassis comes from Phoenix.  Also bought our anti-sway bar
from them and had it installed.
East Bay Frame & Axle
1366 Doolittle Dr, Ste 3
San Leandro, CA 94577

Finding an RV washing place has been hard.  The one Greg recommended
has been sold and no longer washes the roof for us.  They're at 8255 San
Leandro Blvd, on the west side of the street, 'way in back.  There's often
a line on big-rigs, so I try to go early on a weekday.

Bill:  Thanks for the info regarding those businesses.  Unfortunately, for us, we would have to drive through Oakland/Berkeley to get to San Leandro.  Not the safest thing to do these days, what with the protests/riots, highway/bridge/road shutdowns and highway shootings along I-80.

We've managed to locate some great services in the North Bay area, with the exception of RV or Truck washes.  The closest self-serve to us is over in Petaluma at Touchless Car Wash and Detailing.  They have one very large bay with catwalks on each side to reach the higher areas of a truck or RV.  The Camping World in Vacaville does a decent wash job, but they do not do either the roof or the cap over the windshield.  (WH)

Dan Shavlik's RV Service in American Canyon is very good, but he is always pretty well booked up.  Triton Truck Service in Vallejo is a great resource for the non-"RV" portions of the PC.  They work on all sorts of big vehicles like Ambulances, Semi's, RV's, Fire Trucks, etc.   And Cordelia RV does a pretty good job with the RV-related equipment, but they also tend to be pretty booked up with warranty repairs on the RV's they sell.

Sure seems to be a lot of opportunity for new businesses in the Bay Area related to RV services.
