Default Hi Lo camper service in Texas?

Hi Fellow Hi-Lo friends:

I am a rookie to this forum and have been a Hi-Lo owner since 1979 and very sad at learing of the closing of the factory. I am in need of service for my 1986 Fun Chaser - the door side came off the guides while lifting. Also a leak in the hydraulic tank. Please assist me in finding available Hi-Lo repair service as near as possible to my home in Houston, Texas.

Many thanks,

Camper Carroll

I believe there are some Texans here on the Forum, I'm sure you will get some help. Welcome to the Forum! There is lots to learn from its members.

I should have added that HiLo parts are still available from former HiLo employees.

Default Finding service

Camper Caroll, Seems to me that we had a recent post about a Rv service place in Texas. The service was reported to be horibble. I would seriously consider taking it to JR repair in Butler Ohio. Well worth the trip.

Camper Carrol,

You didn't say where you are located. I don't know how close this is to you but there is, according to this advertisement, a dealer in New Braunfels. I cannot recommend them as I have never had any dealings with them, but if you are in the neighborhood....

Stahmann Sales Co., Texas, RV, Dealer, New Braunfels, San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Roadtrek, Winnebago, Class B, Used, Service, Parts, Consignment

We are located in Fredericksburg, TX. If you are in our area, give us a heads up.

Here's a link of former Hi-Lo dealers. Maybe you could call and they may still be able to help.

There is a Hi Lo service center in New Braunfels TX but I haven't had a good experience with them. I would sincerely consider going to Ohio first. The New Braunfels dealer caused as much damage as they repaired to my 290B. The people are nice but the work will leave you fuming. If you have no choice then I guess they are better than nothing, but only barely. If you want more info. let me know.

Sandy,

Welcome to the forum. A lot of the parts and pieces are pretty generic to the RV world. I imagine any RV repair shop could do a door for you. You may have to teach them the operation of the trailer and ensure that they know not to move it when it is in the raised position. As stated above, JR Repair is the source for parts.

I stopped in there to take a look around, they had 4 Hi-Lo's on the lot and I was just "curious"... Any way, one employee was on her way to lunch and said if I needed more info I could wait or talk to the guy inside... Really? I'm supposed to stand around waiting for her to come back from lunch? LOL... So I went to talk to the "guy inside" the only other employee I saw, and he was chit-chatting on the phone, no it wasn't business you could tell, Once he finnally got off the phone, he seemed very "dis-interested" that I was even there...

Needless to say I did not get the "warm fuzzies" you kinda expect to get from a business. I don't expect them to kiss my *** because I am there, but they could make an effort to say "Hi" which he never did.

I won't be back. Don't care if they are having a blow-out sale and everything is $1. I just won't go back to a place I am not welcome.

What Big Lou said does not surprise me at all...
