Hi, and welcome to the forums.

Is this the old Valenti shop with a new name?

What else do you do besides Airstreams?

Very cool. Are you specializing in newer AS's or do you also work with vintage repairs, etc.?

yes, this was the valenti location. they had a great thing going and they threw in the towel? i was their landlord and saw the potential here and there was no way i could see not continuing with the service.
we will be doing vintage as well as current units.
thank you for the response to the welcome post.

I'm sorry to hear about RV Legends closing down but I extremly happy to hear that George Hernandaz will still be working on the Airsteams. He has done repairs and our annual maintenance on our 2007 and I would not let anyone else work on our unit. Good luck to you and George. Will see you when we get ready for our annual maintenance.

Bill,

First off, I am sorry that The Velentis couldn't continue with the business.

My wife and I bought our AS from them Sept, 2009. It is a 1985 Sovereign. We love it. We are in FL this past Winter.

We would be willing to endorse George as "THE BEST". He really extended the best service I have gotten in a long time (ever). He is very knowlegable in what he does. I have, in the past made reference here on the forum to RV Legends aka Velenti's, as the people to do business in CT. We look forward to visiting you when we return to CT.

Regards to George from us.

If you ever need an endorsement, call on us.

Funny, I just found out about RVLegends closing. I like George as well. Have you changed your hourly labor rate? Do you have a website? Good luck with your endeavor!

A ten year old thread. Let us know if they still do Airstreams.

Yeppers. George went into business for himself, eventually moving it to Fishkill. I had him replace my rotted rear floor (!!) in March; he did an excellent job on this huge project.
