The Importance of RV Inspections
If you are buying or selling a recreational vehicle (RV), it is crucial to get a comprehensive inspection of the vehicle done by a qualified RV inspector. An RV inspection can uncover any major or minor issues with the RV that you may not detect yourself. Getting an inspection done before you purchase an RV can save you from ending up with an RV that requires expensive repairs shortly after buying it.

Their certified RV inspectors have years of experience inspecting various types of RVs including motorhomes, travel trailers, fifth wheels, truck campers, etc. They conduct a meticulous multi-point inspection of the RV that covers the following major areas:
•Exterior: The inspector will check the overall exterior condition including the roof, siding, windows, doors, towing components, slide-outs, awnings, etc. They check for any signs of water damage, leaks or structural damage.
•Electrical systems: The 12V DC and 120V AC electrical systems including generators, converters, breakers, wiring, outlets, etc. are tested to ensure there are no issues.
•Plumbing systems: The freshwater system, water heater, drains, sewer system, etc. are inspected to check for any leaks or plumbing problems.
•Appliances: All RV appliances such as refrigerator, stove, oven, furnace, hot water heater, AC, etc. are tested to confirm they are in working order.
•Frame and chassis: For motorhomes, the inspector will do an inspection of the frame, chassis, engine, transmission, brakes, tires, etc. They check for any signs of accident damage or issues that need repair.
•Interior: The overall interior condition, cabinetry, flooring, ceilings, and any damage or water seepage inside the RV is inspected.
An RV inspection by a professional RV inspector can give you peace of mind about the condition of the RV and its major systems. It helps in negotiating the best price for an RV based on any issues detected during the inspection. For sellers, an inspection report can provide full disclosure to the buyers about the current state of the RV. So for both RV buyers and sellers, a comprehensive RV inspection is well worth the investment.
