Good experience at Inland RV

Last January when passing through Corona, CA, I stopped at Inland RV to get some items including grease seals to use upon returning to our Northern California home in June. The nice lady behind the counter gave me the wrong seals, so I had to purchase the correct ones in Sacramento (a 35 mile round trip) in June when I repacked the wheel bearings.
This morning our path took us through Corona, so I stopped at Inland to see what could be done. Andy traded the wrong seals for the correct ones so I will be ready for my next repack. He then issued a very generous store credit for my trouble. Andy also gave us a small gift.
Over the years I have purchase many items from axles to step parts from Andy, always being treated fairly.

Thank you Andy.

I have had great service from Andy and the staff at Inland. They have shipped parts to me direct to Canada, to friends just across the border in North Dakota, and to the repair shop in South Dakota when I broke an axle. Advice and information is top notch and the prices are good. Thank you Andy!!! Chris

I have always enjoyed working with Andy. When I had my 1966 Airstream, he coordinated selling and shipping of the new axle to me and was very professional and prompt. I have purchased parts from Inland over the years and do recommend them. I miss his quips and quotes on the Forum though.

We have also stopped at Andy's in Corona several times and purchased and picked up things. Good experiences. When we bought a wrong shaped exterior roof fridge vent Andy allowed us to return it on the next trip with store credit.

He also directed us to Spruce Aircraft a couple of doors down when he was out of cleco's. We had heard of them but didn't realize they were a few doors down. That was a fun store also.

I have had several good experiences with Inland. By accident I discovered that some other parts dealers will sell out of Inland stock, with a significant mark-up, things you can buy at a lower price direct from Inland. Also, I bough two Dexter Axles for our '67 Overlander and got exactly what I needed in a very short delivery time. Andy arranged free delivery through a local (western NC) Dexter distributor by the name of Red Neck Trailer Supply.

Andy is a cool guy. Next time your in there ask him how to decide on what weight hitch bars. Listen and learn. Lots of bad info out there on that subject.

Terrific! My experience with Inland was not as good. The ladies I worked with were wonderful. But when I had to return un wrapped several storage compartment locks, I was charged a steep return fee plus shipping from Airstream & only was allowed to purchase other items to the amount adjusted for a return.
The locks were not direct replacements but required sheet metal cutting to fit the newly designed lock. This was never explained to me. No, I am not a fan of Inland.

Everything will be great until you pay and the wrong parts arrive. Not a fan. He has trouble fixing his own mistakes. I'm sure he's a good guy outside of the business but geeze. No bueno.

Glad to hear Andy is still at it. His knowledge is unmatched on Airstream construction. Met him with my dad in 2003 and he was nice to us.
