Meet the Owners!

Russel Smith grew up in Western Kansas and spent most of his days working on farm machinery with his father. From an early age, he had an affinity for repairing all types of vehicles. When he was in high school, he restored a Model A Ford and honed his automotive skills through that project. Right out of high school, Russel joined the US Army and served for three years. During his time in the army, he received training as a helicopter mechanic. He used those skills after returning from his tour in Vietnam to fix Army helicopters. When he returned to the US, Russel met and fell in love with Sue, and together they started a family.

Our History

In 1980, Russel and his family moved to Kingman, Arizona. He took a job working in the Maintenance Department at General Cable and worked there until 1996. Then he transitioned to a new job at Rucker’s Auto & RV, which had been proudly serving the community since 1987. He managed the auto repair shop for ten years until the opportunity arose to purchase it. In 2006, Russel bought the shop from the previous owners, and it became Russel’s Auto & RV Repair!

By 2010, just four short years later, we were ready to expand. We moved into our new building — 4065 N Bank Street — on Labor Day. You can find us here near La Senita Elementary School for your next service. From this state-of-the-art facility, we are able to offer more automotive services than before, including wheel alignments and tire services for all makes and models. We are one of few shops in the area with an RV lift inside our shop, which makes it easy to provide extensive repairs for RV systems — including electrical, plumbing, suspension, brake, engine, transmission, furnace, generator, and much more. Contact our shop today to schedule your vehicle’s next service!
