Servicing the coach at Freightliner - Tolleson, AZ
We arrived at the Western Star Freightliner dealer for an M1 routine maintenance and were greeted by Kurt, the motorcoach service writer. This is one huge facility and is open 24 hours a day, every day. Wow, there are LOTS of trucks and motorhomes here.
The Oasis designation is a special certification a service facility is awarded by Freightliner to show that the facility is specially set up for motorcoach repair and service. This is the second Oasis facility we have used and have been happy with each of them.
We were able to plug in to electricity overnight so we could be ready for our 7:00am service appointment in the morning. This makes things very convienient.
One really cool thing I found here is that this facility is an American LaFrance firetruck service facility, so there were quite a few firetrucks being serviced. For Rick, who loves these trucks, this was great.
While waiting for the coach to be finished, we looked at some of the trucks available for sale. This RV hauler was very nice and could handle most any fifth wheel trailer. While nie, we decided we liked the motorcoach approach better for our needs.
