Look online under Freightliner 24/7. Put in your zip and walla, it provides you a local Freightliner dealer. Smart money says find a Freightliner Oasis service center. These are centered around the RVer, with RV hookups, comfy waiting areas and technicians who have been trained and certified for the work at hand.

Got the app and tried on the web site.... How can you tell whether a repair shop is an Oasis center?

Also just because they are on the list doesn't mean they do a lot of RV chassis work. Would be more comfortable with actual recommendations.

If you are in the Buffalo area, we use Fleet Maintenance in West Seneca. Great service and they definitely work on RV's.

A Freightliner Oasis service center has been specially certified by Freightliner to cater to Motorhome owners. The ones we have been to have a separate RV owner's lounge, and will allow you to overnight in their lot the day before and the day after your service.


The Oasis "Mother Ship" in Gaffney services RVs only and has a 20 slot Water/Electric RV park.


I went to a non-oasis Freightliner service facility ~once~ only time I will return in the future is it is an emergency.


Oasis is the way to go - they take care of you

OK, again, how do you tell on the app or website which ones are Oasis and which ones aren't?

So I'll add to this- I'm in NJ- between Curzans and campbell freight-liner neither is a oasis dealer. Closest Oasis dealer is 130 miles away. Has any one used either one? or does any one from NJ have a remediation?

Dave, and All...

This is just a general comment on Oasis centers--sorry I can't tell you about yours Dave.

We have a Freightliner service center 20 miles from us and a Oasis 100 miles away.

Sounds like a good excuse to go for a drive in the Berk

(Oasis every time over a regular Freightliner service center.)

Dave - Risco, a non-freightliner services is also a consideration for you.

Risco RV | A World Class RV Maintenance Facility.

I am not saying that Risco, Curzans and Campbell don't do a good job, but they do not use the Freightliner service schedule. I had gotten them to quote on the Freightliner service schedule and got sticker shock ( like $1k). I enclosed a typical Freightliner service schedule. When I come up from Florida, I always stop at the Gaffney, SC Oasis.
