It’s all over (almost). The planning. The research. Moving out, managing and micro-managing. Moving back in, checking to make sure everything works. And, finally, driving away!
We couldn’t be happier. We’re happy we made the decision to renovate, happy we followed through, and happy that we chose RV Renovators to do the work. We aren’t quite done – we still need to pick up our new day/night shades next week – but RV Renovators has completed their work and have our appreciation for a job very well done.
Every RV owner has a horror story about repairs, warranty work, or renovations (click here to read about our worst experience). Over the years, we have developed a rather suspicious approach to service facilities… you might say “guilty until proven innocent”! Thus we approached our recent renovations with some trepidation, knowing we were about to commit a chunk of time, effort, and money to an unknown entity, RV Renovators.
A few minor glitches early on set our trouble sensors trembling, but we had done enough research on the company to feel we were in the right hands. In the end, RV Renovators did everything they said they would, more quickly than estimated, at a price we believe is fair. Best of all, we’re very impressed by the quality of their workmanship. (Click here to see the work in progress on Nick and Terry Russell’s TV cabinets.)
In slightly over two weeks, they replaced our bedroom and living room carpet; replaced our two-pane windshield (they handled all the insurance paperwork); remodeled our front TV cabinetry, installed our new TV, and rewired components; built and installed a shelf/magazine rack behind our sofa, matching our existing medium oak wood work perfectly; replaced slide seals on both slides; resealed the roof; and six or eight other minor maintenance issues.
This is the big, old TV, with Bose speakers hanging under the side cabinets.
Speakers gone, TV cabinet shortened, frame re-worked. We lost about 20 pounds!
As in all endeavors, communication was the key to success. Once the work began (right on schedule), we visited the lot every other day. On each visit, we were able to talk with the guys actually doing the work, particularly Jerry (who handled the carpet job and seemed to oversee the entire project), and Billy (RV Renovators’ talented cabinet maker). When we had questions, they answered patiently. They spent plenty of time listening to us - our ideas, our concerns, and our explanations – and then did exactly what we envisioned.
While our rig was on their site, RV Renovators made our lives as easy as possible. We had 50 amps of electricity, a water spigot we could use to fill our tank, and a full hookup site we used for a night or two before vacating the rig. Their facility is securely locked, and we had a key that allowed us to get onto the lot at night and on weekends (and it seemed as though there were always a few RV owners in residence). I understand that WiFi is available, too – though we didn’t use it.
Anytime we have work done on our rig – maintenance, repairs, or renovations – I add a review to RVServiceReviews.com, and this was no exception. Good service, great quality. We would return. Thanks, RV Renovators!
Now, we’re ready to move on!
