It is important to understand that NRVIA Certified Inspectors are unbiased third-party inspectors who follow a Code of Ethics when it comes to inspecting your RV and have no financial interest in the sale of an RV they inspect.


Who should get an RV inspection?

  • Buyers – If you are planning the purchase of an RV, you should definitely consider an inspection. Inspections can identify potential problem areas that may result in costly repairs. As well, an inspection will highlight non-problem areas.
  • Private Sellers – As an owner of an RV that you would like to sell, an inspection can provide you with a strong negotiating tool if all is well. It can also identify for you those things that need to be fixed before putting your RV on the market.
  • Dealers – As a dealer, you can work with RVIC and their Certified Pre-Owned Program to ensure that your customers are buying an RV that has been checked by an independent 3rd party inspector with no financial interest in the transaction. Potential buyers can get comfort in the fact that the RV’s on your lot have been Certified.
  • Lenders – As the prices of RVs continue to escalate, lending institutions want to ensure they are making sound decisions with the money they are lending. As such, just like with homes, lending institutions are starting to require that an inspection is part of their process of securing a loan.
  • Insurers – Much like lenders, insurance companies want to be sure the investment they are making to ensure an RV is one that makes sense for them.
  • Snowbirds –  Before heading off for your stay in a warmer, sun-filled climate, you might want to consider having your RV inspected. Or, perhaps you are already in that warm climate and before too long will be heading for some cooler summer weather. Either way, nothing could be worse than a journey interrupted by a problem that could have been identified and fixed before you left.

What do you get?

RV Inspection Services offers two inspection choices. The scope of the inspection, as well as the cost and time required to perform the inspection, is determined by which inspection you choose.

It is important to note that regardless of which inspection choice you make, you can be assured that it will include life safety issues including LP system checks, carbon monoxide, and smoke detection, fire extinguishers,  tire safety, and breakaway systems if equipped.

After the inspection has been completed you will receive a comprehensive report within 48 hours of completion. This report will include all of the specific inspection points as well as comments and pictures. The number of inspection points, pictures, and length of the report is a function of the inspection option chosen.

If desired, you can also choose to have fluid samples drawn of key fluids in your RV.  The samples are sent to our lab partners for analysis with the detailed results returned to you after evaluation.  This sampling process can help determine the “health” of your engine, generator, and transmission.
