Griffith RV repair

Anyone use Griffith in OKC for body work? They are close to the same price as Jackson Center but 1/2 the distance. Any advice would be appreciated.

Griffith is awesome, Tom has been doing this for a long, long time, and he has worked on our trailer many times over the past year. He is fair and does the job right the first time -- but you will pay for it in terms of TIME! His shop is always busy and you should definitely call ahead of time and schedule, as you might be surprised to find out that the queue could be quite long!

Outside of that, I cannot recommend him more!

Thanks! I've talked to him and his wife and liked them over the phone etc. If I use them it will take three weeks and I would schedule it for November. Thanks for the review.

Same here....Brassfields, right? If you didn't know, that's Tom's father -- Tom actually worked on our '71 when he was a kid with his dad! Small world!

This is best picture I have of my sticker -- perhaps I'll snap a closer one tomorrow when it's light outside.

Christmas of 2009 and the great OKC blizzard, we left for Florida with our 34 ft Airstream. Before we got out of Oklahoma county we jackknifed on a snow packed turn. When we got home Tom replaced the curved rt corner like it never happened, he was not able to fix my bruised ego.

He's doing a great job on the Bambi! Joe (Air Midwest member) was kind enough to take some pictures. I'm sure glad I took it to Griffith!
