About Us

Our History

Leale’s RV, one of the West Coast’s largest and most comprehensive RV service and repair facilities, grew out of a small family automotive business in San Jose, CA. Leale’s Auto and Transmission Repair was started in 1963 by James Leale, Senior.

James Leale, Sr; and Jim Leale, Jr.

His son, Jim Leale, Jr., began working in the shop in his early teens and took over the auto and transmission business when his father retired in 1999. As the original auto business continued to grow, and RVs were getting more and more popular, Leale’s stepped up to address the growing demand for their service and repair by opening a second shop for heavy duty trucks and RVs. In 2010, the company expanded again, combining RV, boat, and auto storage with the growing RV service and repair business. The 100,000-foot facility now also includes a collision center that can handle even the largest RVs.

Wanting to spend more time with his family, Jim decided to sell the RV business. So, in 2018, Leale’s RV was purchased by a new owner who was excited about the business and impressed by the exceptional staff that had made it such a success. Leale’s RV has continued to thrive even during the difficult COVID-19 pandemic. As an “essential business,” Leale’s RV has remained open and fully available to its RV customers, making day-to-day operational adjustments as needed for the safety of customers and staff.

Throughout its history as a business, Leale’s RV has maintained the same high standards of hard work and commitment to outstanding quality and customer service insisted on by Jim Leale, Sr.. The company continues to grow, incorporating new technologies and capabilities to deliver the best and most comprehensive RV service and repair for RV owners.
