Suggestions for a good coach shop near Gaffney, SC?

I'm having several issues involving my slideout and its cover on my 2008 Winnebago Tour. Briefly, I need to have the cover roller in the center re-mounted (it was pulled of the fiberglass by winds). I may also need the cover material itself replaced, and maybe the seal on top of the slide, since I have had some leaking problems in that area during heavy rains. As you can see, I need someone with skills to look over the whole area. I'll be in the Gaffney area for about a month starting at the end of April and would like to locate a good shop. Can anyone help me out? Thanks!

Freightliner factory service is in Gaffney as you probably know. You might call 1-800-FTL HELP and ask them for a referral.

I'll second the Tom Johnson's recommendation. They also have a shop in Concord (Charlotte).

We live in Charlotte and highly recommend the Tom Johnson facility in Marion, NC. Their Concord store isn't as good. We also HIGHLY recommend Quality RV in Belmont, NC. Closer to Gaffney and they are very good and reasonable. The shop isn't much to look at, but we've used them for a lot of work. Good honest family run business.

Just had my slideout adjusted at Tom Johnson this morning. They worked almost 3 hours and charged for 2. Works much better now. Good propane price too. $2.48
