NRVIA INSPECTORS: Purchasing Piece of Mind
NRVIA Certified Inspectors - Piece of mind when you purchase
Here’s the scenario: After weeks or months of searching, you find the PERFECT RV that fits your lifestyle and budget. You drop down the down payment or are about ready to sign at the dealer. Do you know enough about RV’s to determine whether your dream rig is road-worthy? Have you gone through it with the proverbial “fine-tooth comb” to locate and identify missing parts, water damage, electrical hazards, mechanical issues?
The second you sign for the RV, all these issues are now your problem. You may discover an issue later and return to the dealer while the RV is under warranty, but now you are using your warranty time to correct issues that existed before you owned the vehicle.
The best solution is to invest a few additional dollars into hiring a industry association certified, NRVIA inspector to go through the RV and determine what, if anything, needs to be repaired or corrected. This crucial inspection provides you the information you need to know whether to go forward or to walk away.
The bottom line is that NO ONE throughout your RV purchase will advocate for you. Not the seller, not the sales guy at the dealership, not the RV Service technician. No one. Using a certified inspector brings in an advocate on your side.
What is an NRVIA inspector and why do I need one?
- Slideouts shearing wirin harnesses
- House windows falling out while driving down the highway
- Miswired trailer harnesses
- Motors of all sorts: slideouts, awning, steps. All needed replacing
- Tire valves that wouldn’t let air out or in
NRVIA Industry Certified Technicians
The National Recreational Vehicle Industry Association certifies inspectors throughout the country.
This inspector won’t argue your case for you to the dealer, nor will he tell you that you should or shouldn’t buy a certain RV. He will let you know the facts and provide a written report detailing all the defects found during the inspection. Then it’s up to you to decide.
