HOW SOON CAN I EXPECT THE INSPECTION TO BE COMPLETED?

Once you have chosen us for your inspection we will determine availability and timelines. Be aware that we require full payment and signed agreements on all pre-inspection documents before we start any inspection.

DO WE, AS THE BUYERS, NEED TO BE THERE DURING THE INSPECTION?

There is no requirement for you, my customer, to be there during the inspection—especially since they can take up to a full day to finish!—but I do need an owner or owner’s representative to grant me entry to the unit.

But, in the event that I encounter any unforeseen problems during the inspection, I do need to be able to get in touch with you—ideally via phone.

I’ll meet with you or give you a call after my inspection is finished to go over my preliminary assessment and conclusions. Within 24 to 48 hours following the examination, I will send you a thorough written inspection report.

HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK IF WE HIRE YOU?

I will offer you an estimate for the cost of the inspection service as soon as we speak or correspond about the specifics of the device you want inspected (brand, model, size, number of slides, location, etc.). We will schedule a time and day for the inspection when you approve the price, and I’ll provide you a link to complete the payment online.

Depending on the size and type of unit, inspections might take anywhere from six to twelve hours. To perform a thorough examination, the unit needs to be parked in a location with access to water, sewage, and electrical hookups.

I’ll meet with you or give you a call after my inspection is finished to go over my preliminary assessment and conclusions. Your thorough written inspection report, which may consist of 20 to 100 pages, should arrive in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Your unit’s type, length, number of air conditioners, specific features, and type of inspection required will all affect how much my inspection services will cost. Kindly get in touch with me for a customized quote. I’d be pleased to go over the procedure with you and answer any particular queries.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PREPARE FOR THE INSPECTION?

In order for all systems to be inspected, we strongly advise you to make sure the unit has all utilities connected for at least 12 hours. Please make sure the inspector has access to any owner’s manuals or appliance manuals before the examination begins.

I KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT RV'S, WHY SHOULD I PAY FOR AN INSPECTION?

Even for seasoned RVers, buying an RV can be a daunting affair.  We frequently have preconceived notions about where we want to take our new RV, or we may truly enjoy a feature that is difficult to find, which might skew our decision to buy and ignore potential problems. Your RV inspector will give you fair information and is there to watch out for your interests.

HOW LONG DOES RV ORIENTATION TAKE?

Our RV orientation usually takes two hours, though it may take longer based on your needs and the size and style of your unit. Depending on your demands, the duration of the orientation may change because it is customized for YOUR particular unit and experience level.

WHY SHOULD I HAVE MY ENGINE, TRANSMISSION, AND/OR GENERATOR TESTED?

Coolants and oils keep internal parts stable in between servicing periods. You can detect early indicators of contamination or breakdown in your oils and coolants by having an oil and coolant analysis done. The lab can look for any indication of internal part wear in addition to checking them for signs of contamination, mechanical failure, or heat breakdown by fluid sampling. By analyzing your oil and coolant, you can find issues early on and take care of them before they cause breakdowns, costly repairs, or wasted travel time.
