I have almost 10K on my RV. I agree that the RV should have several thousand miles on it before this alignment is done.

I watched as the Mike went into the pit to install the bushings and make adjustments while using his high tech alignment machine. I was expecting to pay well over $100.00 based on what others in the forums was saying but there still are alignment shops that charge a fair price. Mike buys bushings in bulk which brings the cost down to a few dollars a piece. I was recommended to him by the Ford dealership here.

Here is Mike's contact info if you have any questions:

Line'em Up Wheel Alignment

1211 US Highway 117 Byp S
Goldsboro, NC 27530-6813
Tel: (919) 580-9980

That's a great price, mine was $160 for the same work. But it didn't matter since Forest River fully reimbursed me since it was still under warranty.

Should I wait more miles ?

Following is what Bclemens had to say back in one of the original threads ..

.....The alignment really needs to get done after a couple thousand miles. We aligned some to their spec (had before readings) and by the time it got there it was 1/2" out. It seems if it is aligned after a couple thousand miles the alignment stays right on after that.....

I'm picking up my 3010 DS in Orlando (RV direct) then driving about 3000+ miles back home. The delivery miles from Ekhart to Orlando is about 1250..
What do people think about whether or not this (1250) is enough mileage on the rig to do the alignment ? I would simply ask the RV Direct dealer to do the alignment before I head out.. If it really handles alot better, I would really want to do the alignment before driving 3000+ miles ..

I haven't set a date yet. Still financing right now. But I'm thinking sometime end of month or first part of April... I'll let you know. You'll probably see a few posts in other forums asking questions as I firm up the date ...
