Default Comprehensive list of Roadtrek Dealers and Service Centers?

Anybody ever found one of these online anywhere?
Sounds silly, but I had some service issues last August while touring the US Northeast,
and had no idea where to take my van for non-emergency repairs.
I'd like to be able to find competent service for my van while out there on the road.
I know an "authorized" dealer or service center may be no better than duct tape or a
coat hanger, but it'd be nice to have a choice, depending on where you happen to be.
I'm surprised Roadtrek Dealers don't have a list created so folks like me can find 'em easier.
The Roadtrek site only gives you a couple of nearby places, and that's not all that useful.
I sent a note to RT.

Roadtrek doesn't seem to like having the population knowing all the dealers. Maybe it is to limit price shopping? To find a dealer you either have to fill in a form with your zip code on their site, or call them, and then you will only get one or maybe 2 dealers. There have been a couple of lists floating around over the years, but I haven't seen one in a while, and they weren't totally complete anyway.

Good luck with you quest, we could all use that info.

In the meantime, be sure to carry Roadtrek's phone number with you when you travel.

Jim

Thanks Jim. I think I've got their number in my phone, but I doubt it's manned 24X7.

I did a bit of searching on this forum (classBforum) and found an old GPS thread by markopolo
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=83&p=125&hilit=dealers+roadtre k+poi#p125
and it contains a link to
http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topi ... C_ID=62851

which has a POI file from 2006 containing 66 dealers in the USA.
It's a start. I downloaded it and I'm going to have browse when I unzip it.
I'll see if RT Service has anything to add, if they reply.
You'd think their dealers would want a POI file out there with their locations, wouldn't you?

I've been in touch with Roadtrek and they will see what they can come up with
by way of a more up to date list of dealers/servicers/both. Apparently, everyone who
sells Roadtreks doesn't necessarily fix them, and vice versa. Some do both.
I suggested their Sales and Marketeers might be interested in creating a GPS POI file
from whatever info they have, to enhance their marketplace exposure by allowing Roadtrek
owners, and non-owners, to more easily find nearby sales/service without their website locator
which requires internet access (not everyone has it when they need it).
