At CertifiedRV Inspections we understand what it’s like to buy an RV with only limited experience and knowledge because we did it that way. At the time we didn’t know what we didn’t know. I don’t recommend buying an RV that way.
What I didn’t know then, but I do now, is that having an experienced and certified inspector/advisor to guide you through the purchase of your RV gives you tremendous peace of mind. Face it. We can’t know everything about everything, so we need someone who is familiar with all types of RVs and who knows what to look for when looking at all the various systems that make up modern RVs.
First and foremost, don’t focus on the cost of the inspection. As a general rule, buyers will use the report from CertifiedRV.com as a bargaining tool to either negotiate a lower price for the RV or have the seller make the necessary repairs prior to the completion of the sale. This is especially true when you are buying new.
