Need Service Recommendation for northern Indiana

I'm going to be at Oak Lake Family Campground at 5310 E 900 N., Fair Oaks, IN 47943 starting tomorrow. I need to have some service work done on the camper and was hoping to get recommendations for different places:

1) For the camper- I need new leaf springs from a trailer shop. I'd like to also get the alignment checked to make sure everything is looking OK. I'm also thinking of seeing about getting shocks installed.

2) For the camper- I want to get 4 new wheels in the 17.5" commercial size with load range H tires.

3) For the truck- I'd need to get 6 new tires and am thinking of seeing about getting new Bilstein shocks installed.

Any ideas for places to go?

So close, yet so far. And the only thing that is close to a warrantable issue is the flatten leaf springs that happened last year.

Not sure where to get work done in that area. Everything RV is in Elkhart. Another 100 mile I guess.

What direction are you coming into fair oaks from. 65 is closed north bound at Lafayette. Will be closed for awhile. Large rains undermined a bridge. Bridge sank 9". Big deal.

Thanks Platokidd. Sorry for not catching up with you- we've had a thrilling evening at Walmart and Target. (sarcasm)

That's close enough to the next place that it's an option.

Ok. Then your north of the mess. At the Fair Oaks exit on 65 there is a large dairy. Not sure what they charge now but they do tours. Might be worth 3 or 4 hours one day. It's a cool tour.

They milk 36 cows at a time on a rotating table.

We live about 100 south of Fair Oaks
