Frequently Asked Questions
Purchasing any Recreational Vehicle (RV) can come with a lot of questions. Here are just a few that we hear from many of our clients. If you do not see your question or concern listed here, please feel free to Contact Us.
The RV I have selected seems to be in great condition, should I still get an RV inspection?
Absolutely! A Pre - Purchase inspection helps to identify hidden issues and provides you with information for future reference from the inspection checklist and photos that you are provided.
Do I have to be there during an RV inspection?
It is not necessary but we do recommend that you be at the inspection. You will be able to watch the RV inspector, ask questions, and learn more about the RV that you are interested in purchasing, such as the condition and how to maintain the vehicle.
Can an RV fail an inspection?
No. The inspection is an assessment of the condition of an RV. It is not an appraisal, which determines market value. The RV inspection service gives you an overall idea of any repair or maintenance needs prior to purchasing the vehicle.
Why can't I do it myself?
Even the most experienced RV owner lacks the knowledge and expertise of a professional RV Inspector. An RV Inspector is familiar with the elements of RV construction, proper installation, maintenance and safety. He or she knows how the RV systems and components are intended to function together, as well as why they fail. Above all, most buyers find it difficult to remain completely objective and unemotional about the RV they really want, and this may have an effect on their judgment. For accurate information, it is best to obtain an impartial, third-party opinion by a professional in the field of RV inspection.
What does an RV inspection cost?
The cost of an RV inspection varies depending on the RV that you are interested in purchasing. You can call us at 800-924-1269 or request a free quote here.
