RV Inspection and Evaluations

RV Buyer’s Inspection

Book our RV Re-Inspection Service to get a second look at the vehicle’s condition. We’ll assess any areas reported as repaired and let you know if everything is truly ready to go.

Pre-Listing / Seller’s RV Inspection

The fact is that it could very well be an unbiased third-party inspection report that finds serious buyers and not just lookers, thereby enabling you to sell the RV faster and easier. Now that’s a reason to smile.

Bus Conversion Buyer’s Inspection

We all have thoughts of freedom and adventure, so a great way toward those dreams is a bus conversion inspection, a detailed report with photographs, and optional fluid analysis.

You’ll also gain invaluable information to help you negotiate the price with the seller. You want to hit the road in “skoolie” without worries.

What do you get?

Mountain Bear RV offers two inspection options: Essential and Premier. Your choice of inspection will determine its scope, cost, and duration of work.

Regardless of the inspection option you select, you can be certain that it will address life safety issues such as LP system inspections, carbon monoxide and smoke detection, fire extinguishers, tire safety, and breakaway systems, if offered.

After the inspection, you will receive a detailed report within 24-48 hours. Every specific examination point will be included in this report, along with comments and pictures. The number of inspection points, the number of images, and the length of the report will all depend on the inspection option chosen.

You can also decide to have fluid samples of important RV fluids taken if you’d like.  After being evaluated, the samples are forwarded to our lab partners for analysis, and you receive the detailed results back.  Your engine, generator, and transmission’s “health” can be ascertained with the use of this sampling procedure.
