Buying an RV is typically the second largest expenditure you’ll make after your home. It makes sense, then, to know exactly what you are buying. An RV Inspection by an NRVIA trained and certified inspector is a critical part of the process. A lot of the most common RV issues are hidden from the casual observer and even seasoned RV owners.  A knowledgeable, certified inspector uses tools and training to uncover the true state of an RV.
A professional inspection from a NRVIA trained and certified inspector not only benefits RV buyers, but it also helps sellers, lenders, and warranty underwriters. Sellers can maximize their sales price and establish buyer confidence. Lenders can verify the condition of the asset they are financing. Underwriters can protect their exposure when offering an extended warranty. RVs are complicated assets that travel on highways, hit potholes, and twist and turn and buckle if they’re being used as intended. A professional inspection ensures peace of mind and helps every party involved in the RV purchase process.
Our comprehensive and multi-faceted RV inspections can cover over 100 points of inspection spanning 14+ categories. A Prime RV Services Inspection Report will consist of 30 to 50 photos describing the items that have been identified during the detailed inspection.
