Where to get a trailer serviced?

Folks, I need recommendations on where to get my trailer serviced. It's been on the road a couple years now, and should have wheel bearings inspected, general maintenance inspection, etc. It's a 6x10 enclosed Haulmark trailer.

I don't have the time or facilities/tools for this kind of work, so need recommendations on where to take it. Ideally, I'll get this done in the next week or so before putting it away for the winter.

I'm interested in your experiences with local trailer service as well. I'm south, so especially interested in recommendations in the triangle from Morris to Hammond to Chicago Downtown.

Craig

Usually any RV dealer or trailer company

Great Quote - One would think that the Secret Service was smart enough to get serviced secretly.

Morgan Park is next to Blue Island, IL at the south end of the city.

For the geographically challanged, Morgan Park is next to Blue Island, IL at the south end of the city.
You'd know it was done right. He's right off the highway.
