Collision • Repair • Paint


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.



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 repair any type of collision damages on RVs: towable RVs and motorized RVs. No job is too big or too small. Our staff has a long experience of restoration and repair projects, and we have maintained an impeccable reputation as an RV repair shop in Tucson.

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.


Take a look at our most recent projects. They cover the whole gamut of RV repair and repainting challenges, and a wide variety of vehicles, from travel trailers to 5th wheels, to Class C, to very large coaches. Whatever your RV model is, it is highly likely that we already worked on this model or a very similar one.
