We’re working on an automatic calendar for this site, that will eventually show updates to our planned itinerary. But in the mean time, we’ll keep this page updated, to the best of our ability.

An RV is not only a major purchase, but it’s a very complex device. For that reason, even if you’ve been RVing for 20 years, when you buy an RV, you need to have it inspected by a professional RV inspector, who has the tools and the knowledge to use them. There’s a lot more to an RV than what you see on the surface and you need to know all what you’re getting – not just what’s on the surface. Let RV Inspector Pro give you the peace of mind of knowing the details that aren’t visible to the untrained eye.

We accept all major credit cards, as well as contactless payment from wireless devices.

About

RV Inspector Pro is your choice for really thorough RV Inspections.

My name is John Gaver,
“The RV Inspector Pro”.

Although I spent most of my career as a manager/director, in the IT industry, my degree says I’m an engineer. I helped pay for my degree in electronics by being a motorcycle mechanic. I have also rebuilt automobile engines, on my own and have even helped balance an engine. In the US Navy, I worked in the machine shop (running lathes, milling machines, shapers, etc.). Later on, when running large IT departments I was required to learn all about HVAC (High Volume Air Conditioning) systems.

But the thing that most qualifies me to be your Professional RV Inspector is that I’m obsessive compulsive… OK, not really…

But I do admire Adrian Monk. 😂

Actually, what I’m getting at is that those who have worked with me say that I’m the most thorough person they’ve ever worked with. Of course, the most important quality of an RV Inspector is that he be thorough.

There are few people in the world who are blessed with my level of Obsessive Compulsive Prowess (OCP, not OCD). Don’t be misled. Obsessive Compulsive is not a disease to be cured. It’s a gift to be nourished and developed. OK. All kidding aside, you really need an RV Inspector whose nature is to examine every little detail and one who has the experience to understand all the nuances of what he’s seeing.

When you need a Certified Professional RV Inspector, contact John Gaver – “The RV Inspector Pro”.

Services

RV Inspector Pro performs a wide variety of inspection services and photographic services. These services include:

The most common inspections are the pre-purchase/pre-sale inspections. (Yes. You should have have your RV inspected before you put it up for sale, so you will know what the buyer’s inspector is going to find and resolve any issues you choose, ahead of time.) For those inspections, we provide a single fluid test (generally motor oil). Fluid tests for other fluids may be added on to the inspection, as an additional service. Each type of inspection includes a detailed PDF (printable) report, emailed to your inbox, including photos of issues or points of interest discussed in the report.

Please note that an RV inspection is not a guarantee of any kind. It is an observation of the current state of the RV or parts of the RV that we were able to access, at the time of inspection. We use tools such as a volt-ohm meter (VOM), a  clamp-on amp meter, a manometer, small and large inspection mirrors, and a bore-scope inspection camera, to determine as much as possible about the RV, without disassembling anything. So while no guarantee is made, a professional RV inspection will provide you with a higher level of comfort concerning the actual condition of the RV in question, than you might otherwise achieve.

RV Inspector Pro also provides specialized inspections for lending institutions, insurance companies, and third-party warranty companies. These inspections serve to inform the company that the RV in question, exists and is in a condition that would justify their risk. Such inspections may be tailored to the needs of the company.

The best way to know what’s going on inside an engine or transmission, short of disassembling it, is to run a fluids analysis on each of the fluids that circulate throughout the mechanism. These tests require that about three ounces of the relevant fluid(s) be drawn and sent to a laboratory that specializes in such analysis. The lab will analyze the chemical composition of the fluid and issue a detailed report on the fluid composition, along with a plain English explanation of what each finding represents. There are up to five fluids that may be analyzed in motorized RVs. RV Inspector Pro provides one fluid analysis with each inspection. But we do offer a full spectrum of fluid analysis, as an add-on to your RV inspection.

We can also provide navigable 360 Degree interior still photos of the RV in question or a navigable 360 Degree video walk-thru of the interior of the RV. The 360 photos/videos can be posted and viewed on Facebook, YouTube, and other sites that support 360 Degree Viewing. These 360 Degree images are a great tool for those who are selling a motorhome. But they’re also a great way to show friends and family, who are far away, how your RV looks, as though they were there. As a side note, these 360 Degree photos and videos can also be viewed, using Virtual Reality goggles, such as Google Cardboard. If you have not seen a 360 Degree image, the click here, to see what it is. You will be amazed.

Even a New RV should be inspected before you sign on the dotted line.

Many people are under the false impression that RV inspections are only needed if you are purchasing a used RV. But nothing could be further from the truth. An RV is a 60 mile per hour earth quake and things shake loose, especially in the first few thousand miles. Sure, the manufacturers do extensive inspections …
