Designated a Factory Authorized RV Collision Repair Center by Over 50 of America's Leading RV Manufacturers and Suppliers
Paramount RV Repair is both a Factory-Authorized RV Collision Repair Center and a Factory-Authorized Airstream and Roadtrek RV Warranty Repair Center
What this means to you is that by taking your RV to Paramount RV Repair, you are entrusting your RV to an RV Collision Repair Center that has the endorsement of over 50 RV manufacturers who have recognized Paramount’s RV Repair expertise in servicing and repairing the RVs that they have built.
Paramount RV Repair is not an RV dealer whose main focus is on sales, with the collision repair component added as an afterthought, just to say it’s there.
Nor is it another body shop claiming to do RV repairs while having little or no training regarding the intricacies of RV repair or RV operating systems or even how RVs are constructed.
Paramount RV Repair understands all aspects of RV collision repair, including construction, material composition, and operating systems.
Even the process of ordering RV repair parts requires years of experience.
Unlike with auto parts, there are no RV parts numbers or VIN number references for the proper parts…only the power of experience in knowing not only the correct part for the repair, but also the best source from which to acquire that part.
This is especially important when it comes to repair parts that require an exact fit, as is the case with RV windows and RV windshields. Proper installation of RV replacement windows as well as RV windshield replacement are repairs best left to seasoned professionals like those found at Paramount RV Repair.
All these skills add up to delivering to you, our customer, the best RV collision repairs possible…and it’s been Paramount’s focus for over 30 years.
Most importantly, by bringing your RV to Paramount RV Repair and Auto Body, you will be selecting a business that has been owned and operated by the Waldren Family since 1977. The Waldrens appreciate the importance of superior RV repairs delivered in a professional environment, with special attention to detail and safety. Plus, we understand the importance of delivering RV collision repair in a timely manner.
And how do we know all this?
Because we, too, are a family of RVers, and have been for as long as we can remember.
Good RV Collision Repair Makes Good Sense
The benefits of making sure that you have a quality RV repair are many.
- Protection of Your Investment
Dollars invested in your RV are only diminished if any repairs are not done professionally and flawlessly.
- Preservation of Resale Value
Nothing drops the resale value of your RV faster than unfinished RV maintenance repairs or poor RV collision repair.
The trick to spotting a good RV collision repair is that it’s difficult to spot it at all.
- Safeguard Against The Elements
During any RV collision repair, all seals should be checked for stability, even when not in the vicinity of the damage.
RV Seals do just that…seal out elements such as rain and snow from causing water damage to the interior of your RV.
In the event of a collision, these seals can be compromised, leading to fractures that allow water seepage
A quality RV repair center routinely inspects these points for signs of fracture while troubleshooting potential future problems.
Good RV Structural Repair Considers What Lies Beneath the Obvious
Paramount’s experts possess extensive knowledge about RV collision damage that goes well beyond the obvious, such as identifying RV structural damage that may not be evident upon first glance, but may be critical to the structural integrity of your RV. Checking the path of damage caused upon impact is just one of the inspections that every RV collision repair at Paramount undergoes. The ability to detect consequential damage points is a talent exhibited by only the finest and most experienced technicians in the business…like those you will find at Paramount RV Repair.
Our technicians conduct important safety checks with each repair:
- Structural Soundness
As with any foundation, flaws can skew, and even endanger, the rest of the structure. The same holds true with the frame of an RV.
That’s why it’s important that every frame be checked during the course of RV collision repair to make sure that it is square.
In addition, there are special considerations for various materials:
Steel and Aluminum RV Frames need to be inspected for cracks and broken welds.
Wood RV Frames require inspection for splinters, signaling a weakened structure vulnerable to further damage.
- Suspension Alignment
With any type of motorized coach repair, a routine check of the suspension alignment to make sure that it adheres to manufacturer specifications is critical. This will insure that the RV will stay true to the line of the road during travel.
- Trailer Checkpoints
Prior to completion of any trailer repair, there are three vital areas of inspection to assure proper operation after the repair:
Springs and Shackles
Making sure that these areas are square, intact and free of defects is an integral part of completed professional trailer repair.
Good RV Fiberglass Repair Combines Art with Science
RV fiberglass repair should be beautiful, yet durable, requiring extensive knowledge of not only the properties of fiberglass material composition, load capacities and even elasticity, but also the precision mixing of color.
RV Fiberglass Damage Must be Repaired Where You See It – And Where You Don’t
Thorough examination of fiberglass damage is necessary to determine the extent of any RV fiberglass repair. It’s almost never confined to the surface point of impact. In some cases, removal of the entire front or rear cap may be required in order to properly inspect the entire scope of the damage. Only then can a fiberglass repair be effective, with adequate reinforcement to not only the front of the repair, but also to the back.
Without this attention to detail, combined with the willingness to totally disassemble the damaged unit when required for a proper repair, cracks will undoubtedly resurface.
“I can’t even see where you did the RV repair”
We have to admit, we hear this a lot.
It takes an average of 6 to 10 toners to create just one color. And it takes years of experience to perfect the art of selecting the correct toners to properly blend a quality color match.
Good RV Gelcoat Refinishing Requires a Professional Touch
Gelcoat serves an important function by sealing porous fiberglass against elements such as water, moisture and the sun’s damaging rays.
A professional RV Gelcoat finish also enhances the overall appearance of your RV by reflecting color while providing a glossy finish.
Damage to your RV gel coat finish is like a star on your car’s windshield…it will only grow and get worse, necessitating more expensive repairs if left untreated.
Water will permeate the underlying material beneath the RV gel coat finish, possibly penetrating wood structure or foam insulation and compromising the integrity of your RV.
Also critical to RV gel coat repair is making the repair as invisible as possible, which necessitates meticulous color matches and an incredibly smooth finish, requiring the experienced touch of an RV gelcoat refinishing professional, like those found at Paramount RV Repair and Auto Body.
Good RV Aluminum Siding Repair
Paramount RV Repair and Auto Body specializes in aluminum siding RV repairs, despite the fact that it often needs to be replaced due to its thin composition.
Aluminum siding must be properly installed to create a weather barrier while protecting the wood framing and RV interior from moisture. Due to the thin gauge of the aluminum, precision installation combining skill with deftness in handling the material is required.
Mesa Patterns, Fleetwood FMX, and Yoder styles all need to be identified before installing RV aluminum siding and travel trailer aluminum siding, as those present special circumstances worthy of consideration in executing a professional RV repair.
Good RV Stainless Steel Repair
Typically found in luxury motor homes, stainless steel also presents repair
challenges of its own. A thorough understanding of its properties is essential prior to working on any stainless steel RV repair.
Good RV Filon Repair
Filon is the trade name for a thin fiberglass sheet often used in the lamination of RV panels. It is typically laminated to luan or cardboard backing in order to make exterior RV panels and walls. RV filon repair can be a tricky business for the inexperienced.
While small cosmetic repairs can be made, it is important to investigate the problem to make sure that it isn’t indicative of a greater issue, like water damage.
Bulges in the RV walls are typically signs of water damage, which can eventually cause extensive RV de-lamination of the filon wall, which then requires replacement of the wall. This is why it’s critical to have your RV inspected by a skilled RV Collision Repair Facility, with techs who understand how your RV was assembled at the factory, so that structural components, such as walls, can be dis-assembled and replaced to manufactured standards in your RV filon repair.
