Where to get repairs done in houston Tx or nearby for my Scamp

My regular repair shop PPL in Houston wonít fix my leaky rivets on my scamp roof. I called Casita near Dallas and was told that no, they donít work on scamps. (Maybe a competitor thing?)
Does anyone know of a repair place in the Houston- Austin - San Antonio Dallas area that has a good track record for working on fiberglass trailers?

Just for clarification and to prevent thread creep, are you sure you don't want to try DIY?

rivet repair in houston or nearby

Thank you Shelby. The websites gave really good information. I'mstill on the fence about trying it alone without anyone with expertise nearby. It's the roof of my camper!!

Kind of surprised nobody local has stepped up to offer help. Maybe check Facebook for a Scamp or Casita group.

Don't know anything about this, but at the CasitaForum there is a grouping of
"Casita Service Companies
Post your recommended Casita service company in a state and please include the address and phone number.
These topics are for "Recommended" service companies only (Not ones you don't like!)"


THIS is the only one posted, so far, for Texas:
Texas RV Tech; 682-702-6920; www.texasrvtech.com; michael@texasrvtech.com; Michael Hall, RV Technician/owner, is a name you can trust for repairs while in the Burleson area (south of Ft. Worth). In an HEB market parking lot, Michael fixed an electrical problem which developed on Maraca while traveling through the area on a rainy afternoon. More info. from his business card: his shop is mobile, he is LP certified, LCI & factory trained, & knows a thing or two about Winegrd Satellite systems.

Go to a big box store and get the tools some rivets, and some plastic sheets (like clear acrylic sold to replace broken windows.) Watch some you tubes on how to rivet and practice until you know what you're doing. Cheap learning session.
