Default New BT Cruiser 5210 many questions

I pick up my new BT 5210 next week. I would like to hear from other Class C owners do you have your rig on a maintenance schedule with a local dealer.
I am wondering do you get your oil changed every 5,000 miles and tires checked and what else am I missing. Never owned an RV before, all advice and recommendations welcomed.

I think this is a very "to each their own" thing. It's a tiny home sitting on a cutaway van chassis. Like anything in a home or with a vehicle, folks either learn how to do things themselves to save money, or you have comfort with a fat billfold to fork over the funds when necessary while keeping your hands clean.

I'm definitely the former. Changing oil is changing oil, etc. I'm sure everyone has their own preferences. I'd say it's nice to have the option to take it to a dealer if there is an engine problem or specific manufacturer issue. Otherwise, any shop can do the basics, and most folks seem to have the best luck with 'commercial van and truck' mechanic shops for brakes, suspension or most anything else.
2005 22' BT Cruiser 5211, Chevrolet 3500 chassis w/6.0L Vortec V-8; 6'x12' Cargo Trailer; Honda CB500X motorcycle for street and ADV riding; Yamaha TW200 motorcycle for dual-sport and trail riding...All of it for fun and adventure!
