Does anyone have any recommendations for how to find an honest, affordable, knowledgeable electrician to handle the wiring of our 1970 Ungers Crown Commander? We're in Katy, Texas, and are having a hard time finding someone to work on an RV. And we've read so many horror stories about suicide wiring jobs, that we're afraid to do it ourselves. All suggestions appreciated.

Hello Sara, Pat Daly thought I might be of some help ... I have a handyman husband who does that kind of thing for my trailer. You might call a local RV repair shop and inquire there. Even CraigsList may be a solution. Post an inquiry there for an RV electrician and see if someone replies. Sorry I can't be more help. Good luck with your project!
I hadn't thought of CraigsList. That sounds like it may have some potential. Thanks for getting back to me on this!
Hi, Sara. I have had excellent luck with Camping World in Fort Worth and there is one located on the Katy Freeway in Houston. They stand behind their work and the work they did for me was great!
Thanks, Kaye. We've been reluctant to try them for fear of the cost, but we have a lot invested in the RV (emotionally, anyway, at this point), so it would be a good idea to get things done right. Seems like they might be a good way to go for quality. I appreciate your letting me know your experience with them has been good.

i know i'm 2 years late but did u get the ungers wired. i have a 71 model & rewired the engine & coach wiring.let me know if i can be of assistance

Hi, Oscar.

We're just now getting back into the Ungers project. We took some time off while my husband pursued his MBA.


Did you rewire your Ungers yourself?  Any suggestions or tips for how to go about it or for how to track down a good professional to handle the job?


Also, did you restore your RV interior?  I'd love to see photos!


Anyway, thanks for your interest in helping. Nice to meet a fellow Ungers owner!

If it's any help my father and uncle designed and built the Ungers Crown Commander. I grew up working on the crown commander. Hopefully by now you found a shop that fixed your problem but if not email me and I will try and help...Dave Ungers

Thanks for getting back to me, Dave.

I guess it's evident by my delayed response that we stopped working on Crown Commander for a while. My husband was immersed in pursuing his MBA. 


But it's nearing cook-off season, and we're ready to jump back into the game. 


Any suggestions you have for locating a good Houston or central Texas shop for work on this type, age, model RV would be greatly appreciated!  Or if you have any knowledge from personal experience we can share with whomever works on the RV, that would be helpful too.


I really love our Ungers Crown Commander.  We had some good cook-off trips in it with the family.  Then we started working on renovating the interior, and before we knew it, we had it pretty well stripped down (the former owner had installed floor-to-ceiling carpeting throughout).  If you have any photos you can share of how the orginal model looked on the inside, that could come in handy when we're done with the electrical business and are ready to approach the interior.


Thanks, again, for your reply!
