Anyone know of a good independent service department in Virginia?

We bought our 2017 Forester in March from an independent dealer in Manassas, VA. We had a terrible experience with Camping World with our previous RV and really wanted a dealer we thought we could count on for service. Well guess what? They sold to Camping World! We need warrenty work done and I am having a hard time finding a dealer (other than CW). I have been in contact with FR via email and voicemail but have not gotten a response as to where I could take it. Anyone on here have any suggestions? We are willing to drive to find a good service department. Thanks!

Keep in mind that where ever you go get authorization from FR for the warranty work first.

Any good independent RV service and collision center understand pre approval and will work with factory and all insurance. If they state that they do not, insurance claim is on you, keep looking.

Please post your findings.

I was gonna suggest RV outlet as well. We purchased our Sandpiper there and the experience was great. Have not experienced their service department (and never will as I do all work myself), but I am sure it is much better than Camping World.

Their sales department is busy, so I assume their service is as well.

I know this is a little old, but Atlantic RV in Culpepper is great, and shouldn’t be too far from you. Good people, do good work. They do get a little busy, but they are great about prioritizing as well as they can for people with hard plans.

Another company that works on RVs you may want to consider. I personally have not experienced the work they do but they were highly recommended to me. I have our FW there now for some body work. Everyone there are very friendly. They too are pretty busy.
