Cost of oil change

I know we've talked about oil changes and the cost, but the "search this thread" feature is not working. I'm staying at The Great Outdoors in Titusville FL and they have an on site facility that quoted me $289 to do oil, filter, chassis lube and check all fluid levels. This is my first time, seams a little high or is this reasonable?

If that's for the main engine as well as generator it's a pretty decent price. If it's just for the main engine oil change, it looks a little high to me.

I got 37 point preventative maintenance check, oil change, lube, fuel filter, water separator, coolant test w/strips and a gallon of washer fluid for $214.81 at my local freightliner oasis dealer. My first oil change was done through a dealer and it was about $225 and took about 4 hours. They overfilled and did tell me that they didn't do many diesels. I never went there again for an oil change. I have done it myself for about $75 for oil and filter. Not hard to do, but must have tools, place and something to catch the oil.

You said it is on site so I take they are coming to you. On top of that until you have crawled under a Berk to lube it you have no idea what fun is, I would say that is not bad.

Our local cummins/freightliner dealer charges $480 that includes all filters, gas and oil, chassis lube, complete chassis/engine inspection and radator anti-freeze testing. That includes the generator and engine.

If you're heading west they have Speedco service centers for large trucks and RVs. I got the full Monty done in Vegas for $166. Next time it's due I'm heading out west again, it's just too good of a deal. Not sure their range of operations but great service.
