Default Trailer Service - Chicago

For all the Chi-town members,

I am looking for a reputable shop preferabley in the sw suburbs to do bearing check/repack as well as the brakes for my Eagle trailer.

Just do not have the time or space by the house to do it myself.

Thanks
Paul

Great,
Shoot their contact info to me and I will call them.

We were at the beach north of the marina when I saw you go by. Then we were in the lock together. I was up front. We should run together sometime. We have not taken the city route of the river yet. We usually head right over to the beach.

Mitch Stellin broke an axle going chico last year. We pulled off and dropped the trailer at a shop that right at the end of the ramp. I don't know who it was, but he said they were very helpful and he was quite satisfied. Several other members chimed in to say that they were a good shop.
