Where to Go to Repair Your Old RV

Dec 23rd 2015 at 11:01 PM

Perhaps your old RV has seen better days, but that isn’t a reason to give up on it. You and your family may have traveled many miles in your camper and have created many memories. If you have a vehicle in a classic, vintage style, it may be worth holding onto it and fixing it up. While a camper that is thoroughly run down might not be worth fixing, there is hope for many RVs, and the resale value, particularly on a camper that is in a vintage design, may be substantial.


It is worth consulting with experts and deciding on the cost of repairing an RV. All of its systems need to be inspected, and you should be aware of the cost of materials and repair. A professional can examine your trailer and asses its general condition. Then the vehicle should be inspected to see what is working, what isn’t and how well it runs. You can then decide what can or cannot be replaced, what is worth replacing and the time and cost involved in making the repairs. After this initial stage of figuring out what needs to be done, you can get started with the process of fixing up the trailer.


Enlisting the aid of professionals will make the job easier and may save you time and money. There are many moving parts involved in a camper. You will need to examine the exterior, including doors, locks, windows and seals. Take a look at the running gear, including the axles and springs, as well as the RVs electrical systems, such as brake lights.


When you have examined the exterior, inspect the interior, including all of the furniture, the kitchen areas, the plumbing and bathroom, the upholstery and carpeting. Then take a look at those items that make your RV comfortable, such as air conditioning, fans and the entertainment center.


Once you have made an assessment, it is time to plan the scale of the project with a professional. It is worthwhile to look for someone who has significant experience restoring vintage RVs. Classic styles of campers can fetch higher prices for resale, and even if you are planning to hold onto your trailer for a while, it is worth it to think ahead.  You may cherish your RV for many years to come, but it is good to know you are increasing its value should you decide to sell it.
