Considering purchasing a Class A. Where do you get oil changes and other services when traveling?

Especially if there is no RV dealers near by.

I have used different quick lube locations and Walmart.
It will depend on what chassis MH is built on. Most quick lube and Walmart (That does MHs) can do Chev and ford chassis rigs.

WE have a smaller Class C with a Chevy 450 chassis and V8 gas engine. Take it to local MasterLube.

I frequently use fast lube shops plus Walmart (20 years) in many states for my Ram trucks and have never seen any of them servicing a MH.

I used Ford dealerships when on the road. I called Ford Customer Service and got the names of dealerships in the area who service motorhomes. Worked out well for me.

yes but understand in the typical snowbird season we're on the move for two-months and stationary for the other two months. the rig would get serviced just before we leave and after we get back. typical odometer mileage during that period is 5-7k.

This means nothing. Just because you haven't seen something doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

I personally have used a quick oil change business as well as the local Ford dealer.
