Great Spot to visit Chicago from.

We stayed 3 nights with A-1 Automotive parked on the asphalt driveway next to the workshop. Lorri & Tim was very welcoming. Tim offered assistance and tools that we may have need to carryout a small repair on our Safari Trek Motor Home despite his ill health at that time. From Morris we drove to New Lenox and went by train to Chicago which made it a pleasant experience. We would certainly stay again should the opportunity arise.

Very quiet

We stayed there 3 nights in Chicago at A1 Automotive's.
The location is not beautiful, but it is very quiet. Tim, the owner of Automotive welcomed us with great sympathy and helped solve many problems of our motorhome. For us, who are of the new campers, it was very important! And 'one of the few places where one can stand boondocker. In Chicago, you can not stop at Rest Areas and even in the parking lots of Wal-Mart. A beautiful opportunity to visit Chicago for us Rvs. sorry for my english
