What are RV Inspections?
RV Inspections are like home inspections, evaluating their systems, structure and safety. They can be performed on all classes of RV. Detailed reports, including 20 to 40 photos, are delivered in PDF format within 24 hours of scheduled inspections, enabling potential owners to make educated decisions on their purchase. For information on systems inspected see the Points of Inspection summary below.
Why do you need a RV Inspection?
Prices of RVs range from a few thousand dollars for a pop-up camper to millions of dollars for a luxury class A coach. With the same systems as a house that allow for self-contained living, and those that allow for mobility, RVs are very complex. When RVs travel along roads the forces and stresses they are subjected to can take their toll on structures and systems. Without proper checks and maintenance issues can develop, often without the owner being aware. When shopping for an RV customers are often distracted by the features and how they will use them, imagining future vacations, but blinded to issues that may exist.
Avoid a costly mistake, avoid a ‘lemon’ or ‘money pit’.

What else do you need to know?
For best results the RV needs to have full hookups available at the time of the inspection, this includes 30 or 50 amp power, city water supply and sewer. There should be water in the fresh tank, and the refrigerator should be running at least 12 hours before the inspection. Your inspection will take several hours to complete.
What additional services are available?
Fluid analysis can be performed on motorized RVs and those having generators, providing an indication of the internal mechanical condition. Fluids which can be analyzed include engine oil, transmission fluid and coolant. The cost for this service is $60 per fluid sampled.
