Let me help you make RV buying a much easier process. As a certified RV inspector, I will go through the RV front to back, roof to underbelly and everything in between.


Would you buy a house without an inspection?

I didn't think so! Yet most people buy an RV without an inspection.

Whether you are a brand-new RV buyer, a weekend warrior, or a seasoned pro an RV inspection will help you to make the most informed decision on that major purchase.

If you are considering buying an RV I believe that you should have firsthand knowledge as to whether the RV you are considering purchasing is a good buy or not. An RV inspection gives you the confidence and knowledge to buy a new or used RV with peace of mind.

  • An RV Inspection offers a comprehensive visual examination of the RV roof, exterior sidewalls, front and back, underbelly, and interior. It will also cover important appliances such as the generator, refrigerator, furnace, AC units, plumbing, water heater, water pump, and much more! Catching an existing issue with any of these items now can save you from costly RV repairs.

  • When shopping for an RV, you will realize that there is a lot of equipment and machines that go into creating the vehicle. From electrical to plumbing to mechanical, there are different components that must work perfectly together so that you can have the best RV experience. If you are buying a used RV, you must take into account all these factors before you purchase the RV.

  • But will you be able to recognize the problems and the potential issues that a used RV might have?

  • Do you have enough knowledge and understanding of each part of an RV to make an informed decision?

  • While you may know about some equipment, understanding each one of them is not possible unless you are an RV inspector. And you cannot trust a salesperson to walk you through each and every potential problem that the RV may have. After all, they are trying to sell the RV and wouldn’t want to explain all the minute issues that the RV may have.

What is Fluid Analysis/Testing?

Fluid Testing (lubricants and coolants) is an economic way to find out what’s going on inside your engine, generator, or transmission, without disassembly. A comprehensive fluids analysis is offered as an add-on to our standard motorhome/RV inspection and as part of an ongoing program for motorhome/RV owners. These tests apply mostly to motorized units. However, some larger towables are being delivered with generators that can benefit from these tests.

  • It should be noted that a full spectrum of fluids analysis should be run on a brand new motorhome, as a baseline, for future tests. Our laboratory keeps a history of each vehicle on which tests are run. This way, they can give a more detailed fluids analysis.

  • Having a full spectrum of fluids analysis run, at the time of purchase of a new motorhome, gives the lab an invaluable benchmark to refer back to, during future tests.

  • Fluid Sampling; Oil, Transmission, and Coolant, Highly Recommended for all Inspections on your RV, generator & Aqua Hot System.

  • To draw a comparison, when you visit your doctor for your annual physical, prior to seeing the Dr, blood tests have been ordered, lab reports obtained so the Dr can fully understand what is going on inside your body. The same is true with fluid sampling for your RV. Fluid sampling is an important portion of the inspection process.

*Fluid Sampling fees are additional to the Inspection fee.
4, 5 & 6 samples include overnight shipping to the lab.
