Looking for help in South Texas

We have a 1961 21Ft Flying Cloud. We are looking for someone to help with repairing the chassis and replacing the sub-floor. Anyone have any recommendations? Austin/San Antonio Area

I know there are some knowledgeable forum members in Houston that may know of someone. But the nearest company I know of that is reputable is A&P Vintage in Paradise, Tx. Thatís a 5 hour drive for you. Maybe someone reading this from the area will have some recommendations. A friend of mine is having his 1980s systems checked out at a place in SA, but havenít heard whether or not the place is working out. Good luck

Miller Garage. I believe he's up in Dallas though. He has a youtube channel and does great work.

A&P as Bubba suggested. If you donít know much about it you can really be taken advantage of and there are many people who donít know how to do it correctly. A&P are totally reputable and knowledgeable.

Bob Jones in Houston is very experienced with Airstreams and is very easy to work with.

I'm in Austin. We had the living room redone on our '75 Ambassador by JDK Creations, off of 290 and Cameron Road (2000 Ferguson Lane) 512-903-6906. Ask for Jeremy.

They do lots of custom work, while they were doing mine they were converting one into a travelling cigar lounge: gutted everything and it was amazing. Another project was moving a bathroom/kitchen from the curbside to the roadside. Beautiful work.

It'd be worth a phonecall/visit since they're local. I highly recommend them. Good luck!
