RV Inspection Specialists performs pre-purchase/pre-sale RV inspections and mobile repairs.
RV Inspection Specialists is certified by the National RV Inspectors Association in order to provide a thorough unbiased inspection on all types of recreational vehicles. Our inspectors, Carol and Jim Jackson are experienced RVers themselves and Carol is a trained and certified RV technician and brings that wealth of knowledge about RV systems and components to the testing and evaluation of the RV. A typical inspection on an RV up to 30 feet will take 3-5 hours and the larger motor coaches, trailers, and fifth-wheel trailers can take up to 8 or 9 hours to complete. We provide a written report and summary of the inspection findings complete with photos and videos.
Purchasing an RV is a huge investment regardless of type, there are complex systems in your RV just like your home as well as systems that are unique to the RV such as leveling systems and slide outs. Most buyers don’t know what to look for when purchasing an RV and spending a little upfront for an RV inspection can save you thousands in repairs afterward. Even if you are an experienced RV owner, do you know how to correctly test the systems? Perform a propane leak test? Perform a Delta T test on the air conditioning systems? Do you have all of the necessary tools and meters to perform all of the testing needed to evaluate the systems?
Even if the dealership provides a pre-delivery inspection (PDI) our RV inspections are typically more thorough, and because we are independent of a dealer we don’t have a biased motive in the sale or purchase of the vehicle. We have been trained by the NRVIA specifically to inspect RV’s in a way that allows us to methodically and thoroughly inspect each component of the RV and provide detailed electronic reports that are supported by lots of commentaries, photos, and videos. Our RV inspections are often compared to a home inspection and are actually written on a software platform that was designed for the home inspection industry. Our process is so thorough that we typically uncover defects and issues that the dealership’s technicians often miss. Our reports will provide you with the information to make an informed decision on the RV you are considering purchasing as well as giving you the documentation to aid in your negotiations with the Seller.
Our RV repair services are all performed as a mobile service as well, meaning we will travel to the RV and make repairs on site. Our service area for the mobile service is limited to PA but we can travel up to 100 miles for the service call from our Lancaster home base. We carry stock of many of the common parts needed for repairs and have access to several RV part distributors and manufacturers that deliver to us throughout the week.
