Suspension Workshop - You're invited

Got some sway in your drive? Got some wiggle in the rear? How about that porpoising?

Do you want your RV to handle better? Come to our Suspension Workshop!

To help you get the most out of your RV experience, we’re starting a new customer workshop program at Leale’s RV. Our goal is to give our customers the opportunity to learn directly from our staff and from each other about different aspects of their RVs.

Are you interested?

Our first workshop will be on RV suspension.

At Leale's RV in San Jose
10 am – noon (with lunch to follow)
Date to be announced.
(Bring your coach to discuss your specific needs.)

If you are interested in attending an RV Suspension Workshop, (as our quest),

please reply to:

Use the message, “Yes I’m interested in the Suspension Workshop.” Include your name, phone number, and email address.

(This specific workshop is not for RV owners who already have solid suspension setups. It’s for those who have not yet addressed their suspension issues.)

Taking your RV to Burning Man?

Going to Burning Man? Taking your RV?

If this image looks a little too familiar, don’t worry…its very common for large (or not so large) RVs to somehow get dings and dents along the way. Let’s face it, they’re not exactly easy to parallel park, and sometimes just driving them can be a challenge.

Common type of RV body damage.

Have no fear, Leale’s RV Collision Center is here. And we can fix just about anything you can do to your RV. Compartment doors: no problem. Bumpers: yes, we can. Roofs and windshields: bring them in.

From collision damage and fiberglass repair to custom paint, Leale’s Collision Center technicians are experts at restoring your RV to its beautiful original condition.

Kory, our Collision Center Manager, will help guide you through the process of getting your RV body concerns taken care of, even working with your insurance company to make sure you get the best result possible for your RV’s “body work” needs. Just give us a call. (408) 286-5353

Unlock the benefits of keyless entries.

Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to worry about losing your RV keys? And how about no more carrying your keys with you each time you leave your RV... even for just a short walk?

You can now add convenience and upgrade your RV’s security at the same time.

Consider keyless door handles. Remote keyless access is available for most RVs.

Call Leale’s Parts Department for information on a keyless entry package, or send an email message to

Just joking around

If you have friends who argue that tent camping is better than RV camping… Remind them that people in sleeping bags are the soft tacos of the bear world.

"And now....a word from our customers"

"I’ll keep this short. I’ve owned RVs for 20 years for my business. I’ve been to every RV repair shop in the Bay Area over the years. Leale’s RV repair is light years above and beyond all the competition. I first heard of Leale’s while working in Arizona and staying in an RV park. Two different RV owners recommended Leale’s in San Jose. The price for many repairs is average not cheap but not outrageous either. Great employees are not cheap in the Bay Area.

RVs are complicated apartments on wheels. It’s very difficult to find a repair shop that you can trust (especially when you’re hundreds of miles away). I recommend Leale’s when you want it done right.

P. S. – Burning Man destroys RVs, just saying…(but it’s a lot of fun)."

Remember your tow vehicle.
