Collision • Repair • Paint

OUR MISSION

With a history of a quarter of a century repairing and repainting RVs in Tucson, Artistic Elegance is one of the rare “Old School” RV shops in the city. We have mastered all the techniques used to repair bent metal and cracked fiberglass, and to repaint with perfect color-matching.

Our mission is very simple: we are dedicated craftsmen who love our art, RVs, and our community of RV fanatics. When your RV comes into our hands, it leaves our shop like nothing ever happened to it, even better than factory specifications.

OUR STORY

our-story

Kent’s grandfather started the tradition back in the 40’s. He worked at Coach Works, working on early motor homes and buses in Apache Junction, Arizona.

Flash forward and little Kent was 6-7 years old working with his father on body work projects in their back yard.

Kent moved from Kentucky to Tucson in 1983. He first worked at a body shop doing restorations of old muscle cars, high end Mercedes & Jaguars.

After 3 years, he left to become the head painter at Holmes Tuttle Ford. During his 10 years there, he strived to and achieved very high customer service ratings and won employee of the month countless times. His attention to detail even won him employee of the year.

In 1996 he set out on his own bringing with him a lifetime of experience. He has trained his staff not only his attention to detail, but in good work ethics as well. He’s now helped countess happy customers with their projects, and receives many customer referrals as a result.

We ruined the roof of our 5th wheel and Artistic Elegance made everything so easy! They fixed it quickly and it looks way better than it was when we bought it!! They fixed the side panel that was busted. Perfect! And they even fixed a few things inside without charging us!! We will never go to another RV Service Company again!!! Thank you so much Kent and your team!!! We LOVE it!

I gave this company 5 stars only because I couldn’t give it 10. Kent was quick to respond at the onset, worked with me on mutually beneficial dates, dealt with the insurance company, kept me in the loop during repairs, and delivered a top quality, on-time result, all while being responsive to my questions during the process. Wow! Who gives that level of service anymore! And the guys on his crew were accommodating and professional, also. I couldn’t be more pleased. Kudos and thank you to Artistic Elegance!

While traveling home to Tucson from the East coast, my wife and I had a run in with a fuel island pipe bollard, well truth be told I did. I had taken out 6 of our 8 basement compartment doors, I felt sick. We made it home and I began searching for a body shop to repair the coach, and that’s when we discovered Artistic Elegance. We brought the coach down for an estimate, and Kent took the time and put together a complete and professional estimate. He then submitted the estimate to my insurance company which they approved in 4 hours!!! Kent knows his business and is honest, forthright, and a true professional in everything he does.We dropped off our coach on 11/15 and we picked it up today 11/30 and we couldn’t be happier. Everything was completed perfectly. Paint was a dead on match, seams were straight and equal and the doors worked perfectly. We would highly recommend Kent and his professional staff, so the need ever arise for his services. Thank you for everything you’ve done Kent to put this behind us. Drew Kucy

We used Kent and the folks at Artistic Elegance to repair body damage on our travel trailer. We took it someplace else for an estimate first, but when we dropped it off they told us it would be a couple months and the following day they hadn't even looked at it for the estimate. I found Artistic Elegance through a Google search and I gave them a call because of all their great reviews. Talking to Kent put me at ease and I felt confident that they would take care of our trailer and do a good job on the repair. They were able to get us in quickly and had the repairs completed in about a week. Kent was always available and kept me updated on the progress. I was thoroughly pleased with the experience and would highly recommend them. Thanks, Kent.

I would highly recommend Artistic Elegance for any and all autobody needs. Kent was very nice to deal with, he was professional, efficient and accommodating throughout. Good communication with me as well as the insurance company. My car was finished ahead of schedule and looked brand new. You won't be disappointed with Artistic Elegance.

OUR DIFFERENCE

AN “OLD SCHOOL” PRIDE
IN THE QUALITY OF OUR WORK

Maybe because I was educated in my craft by my grandfather, a man of integrity and principles, I have a lot of pride in the work my team does for you and other clients.

Artistic Elegance is not a big shop. It’s a craftsman’s RV repair shop. When we repair a cracked fiberglass bumper, we have to make it look better than factory.

When clients bring their RV for repaint, we aim at making them proud of their vehicle wherever they go.
