P & S Trailer Services is a business in Helena, OH that specializes is repair and restoration of Airstream travel trailers. They have been in business since the 1960's. The works done for me has been excellent. I would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them.

P & S Pictures of our AS Polishing & Recoating

We received some pictures today from P & S Trailer Service in Helena, Ohio today showing the progress of polishing & recoating our Airstream's exterior.
They reminded me that you have to break some eggs to make an omelet!
So far I'm liking this omelet!

Thanks for all the honest reviews. I will avoid them in the future. They seem to be fine if you're not too picky or if you don't pay attention to detail. Otherwise, they don't seem to be of perfection caliber.

After all the good reviews, how can you come to the conclusion? Are you misunderstanding what is being written?

I thought the same thing. Most of what I've read has been positive. There are a couple of unhappy customers, but every vendor will have those.

I'll say it again: these guys are great to work with. Real busy - just look at the photos.
Besides, most places don't do any recoating, just panel replacement.

In 2014 we had P&S do work to our '89 32' Excella. New curb side awning and tube, new water heater, new shower handle valve, and strip, polish, and new clear on the front and back top 3 panels.

I generally prefer to DIY most of my projects but with limited time before a planned trip to Disney's, Ft. Wilderness, P&S was a good solution for our needs. I'm picky and like attention to detail - generally why I do my own work. That said, overall I'm pleased with the work performed.

In full disclosure, my one area of concern was the switch installed in the bathroom to select electric or propane was not installed level. Most people would never notice, but it's visible to me.

I would recommend and use P&S again.

I cannot think of one family business that has withstood the test of time because their customers don't pay attention to detail or aren't too picky!

I'm proud to have chosen S & P for their integrity, longevity and being an American family business that has grown by satisfying their customers for decades.

If you believe I don't pay attention to detail or aren't too picky run that one by my poor husband.

How do I come to that conclusion? Simple!

At the time of my post, there were seven overall reviews of P & S on this thread. Of those seven, FOUR (!!!) of them were NEGATIVE.

FOUR out of SEVEN were negative!!!

Items stolen and not replaced, not polishing/coating the areas quoted, corners peeling, items installed crooked, deep scratches and damage to people's trailers...

But again, FOUR out of SEVEN negative reviews??? That's more than HALF!!!

How could ANYONE see that as a positive?

The fact that TWO different people on this thread saw these majority negative reviews as a positive for P & S are two more blinding examples of LACKING ATTENTION TO DETAIL. Those two people didn't even NOTICE that the majority of reviews were NEGATIVE...and those are the same type of people that would probably have no problem with this company's work.

Instances such as the examples listed above is how I came to the conclusion I arrived at.

I wouldn't be taking the number of reviews on one thread as any indicator of anything. Not even all the reviews in one forum. People come to forums seeking help, and tend to attract people with problems. Very rarely do people come to forums to say "hey, it went great!"

P&S has been in business for a long time and does great work. Are they 100% perfect? No, of course not. No endeavor led by human beings is. But be careful going by "forum wisdom". It trends overly negative on everything.

P&S COST ME $60,000; YES $60.000 !!!

We had a "98" Excella that was scheduled for new end cap, strip, caulk and clear coat.
Before we got there, the step broke, so I went in to order the parts. While doing so, the wife found a NEW FC and bought it.
I contacted P&S, told them what happened and they refunded my deposit, no ?? asked.
I would call this great customer service
Mike
