Front end alignment recommendations sought

I need to get the front end aligned on my Vegas 27.7, and the shop I had used previously has closed. I'm looking for recommendations for a new place to get it aligned. I am in eastern Kentucky, so I can travel anywhere between Charleston, WV and Louisville, KY (east to west) and Cincinnati, OH to Knoxville, TN (north to south).

Recommendations?

Ford has a line dedicated to MH chassis and can tell you what Ford dealers in your area can do alignments. 1-800-392-3673 or 1-800-906-9811, donít remember for sure which number it is but think itís the first one. If Ford canít help look for a shop that does alignments on semiís.

No Ford dealers near me could align my Axis but their alignment guy recommended - what he considered - the best truck alignment place in the area. I called a couple of other alignment facilities that did not do trucks and they had the same recommendation. The truck alignment guy loved working in the E-450 and did a super job. I took my new Axis to him and he did another excellent job.

No Ford dealers for me either in SoCal. I found a non-RV dealer RV service business that did mine.

I went to a local truck suspension place and they did me a fine job for about $120. No adjustment needed. But glad I did it.
