RV Inspections and Services
What is an RV Inspection?
The best way to describe what an RV Inspection is, is to think of a pre-purchase home inspection. Before a loan will be made to buy a home the lender/bank requires a home inspection to determine if the home is structurally solid and meets code.
An RV Inspection is based on the same premise. You are getting ready to spend a considerable amount of money on a unit that will need to endure hurricane force winds (travelling 55-65mph) going down the road and then throw in a few earthquakes (road conditions). You want the assurance that the unit you are buying is in its best condition.
Benefits of an RV Inspection
In the report you receive it will show the items that may need to be repaired/replaced. It will show life threatening issues and issues of concern. The inspection is so thorough it may show issues that the dealer has missed or overlooked.
With this report you will be in a position to go to the dealer and request these items to be corrected or be able to negotiate a better purchasing price. You will have documented proof of these issues by an NRVIA certified Inspector.
If you are buying a used unit from a private seller, this inspection could find hidden damage that may not be readily apparent then again saving you money down the road.
Are there different levels of an RV Inspection?
Yes. FREEDOM RV Inspections & Services provides different levels of inspections for you to choose from.
Services and Repairs
If it is in or on your unit, we can ensure that it runs at peak efficiency so that you don’t have to waste a minute of your trip.
Horse Trailer Repairs and Other Services
The off season for most horse events is short. Because of this, horse trailer repair, at times goes without being performed. Freedom RV Inspections and Services would like to announce that we are now servicing and repairing horse trailers.
But why would I need an inspection?
How the Inspection pays for itself:
On a new unit, an inspection can identify warranty issues before you take possession of the RV. From that point you can negotiate the repairs and have them fixed before it leaves the dealership, saving you time and money down the road.
On a pre-owned unit, an inspection can identify issues that exist, allowing the buyer to negotiate the repair cost and/or know what repairs need to be addressed before the unit can be safely taken on the road.
Not all issues are visible to the eye, function tests the inspector does on systems such as the Air Conditioners, Water Heaters, Undercarriage, Roofs, Slides and Refrigerators can show that they are not performing optimally/efficiently, and could lead to potential problems down the road
Not only are repair cost expensive, but the time it takes to get an appointment to bring it into a shop, the hassle of getting it there and the inconvenience of the lost RV time, could pay for the inspection many times over.

We are currently enjoying our fourth RV. We have moved from small to larger travel trailers and from large to smaller fifth wheels. With each change came a period of having to learn the new RV and at times this would take away from being able to enjoy the camping experience.
