CUSTOM CARE RV SERVICE
PURCHASING AND MAINTAINING YOUR RV
"You don't know what you don't know."
Whether it is a motor home, 5th wheel, or travel trailer, there are standardized items that need to be inspected. Does the RV refrigerator work properly? The AC units? Water heater? Is the propane gas system sound? How old are the tires? Does the roof leak? Do you know how to properly check these systems? Do you know what other areas should be checked?
As a certified NRVIA inspector, I will perform a thorough inspection and provide a detailed report (with photos) - just as if you had a home inspection. (i.e., 6-8 hour inspection for a motor home, with a 50-80 page report)
POST PURCHASE WALK THROUGHS
Let us remove the fear and doubt from the new or used RV purchase experience. A thourough NRVIA inspection gives you a "health of the RV" report. Our 2-3 hour post purchase walk through will give you peace of mind, knowing the operation and care of your next RV. (Lets' face it, after signing the paperwork, and gettting the 20 minute wrap up with the salesman, are you really going to know all you need to know?)
REPAIRS, PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
Something not operating as it should be? Have you inspected the roof/ AC lately? RVs experience normal wear and tear just traveling down the road. If you prefer not to perform the required preventive maintenance yourself, rely on our experience and training.
CATERING TO YOUR NEEDS
Inspections, Preventive Maintenance, Repairs
As full time RVers, we have learned the complexities of purchasing and maintaining RVs. Having talked with other RVers, we've become aware that many buyers may not know what to really look for with an RV purchase.
For that reason, I became certified through the National RV Inspector's Association to perform pre-purchase RV inspections, to help others with the buying process.
We are currently serving the Tampa / Ocala / Jacksonville, Florida area. Feel free to call, email, or text to contact us for our availability.

CUSTOMIZED SERVICE FOR YOUR RV CARE
WHO NEEDS AN RV INSPECTION?
The simple answer is - anyone who is considering buying a used RV or selling one they own.
If you are buying, an inspection provides you with an unbiased view of the condition
of the equipment at the time of inspection.
If you are the seller, it provides you with a qualified unbiased view to justify the price you are asking for your unit.
Other answers to this question include: lenders, insurers, extended service agreement companies and more.
WHAT IS AN RV INSPECTION?
A certified inspection is one that is, first of all, accomplished by an unbiased individual who has
no financial interest in the outcome of the inspection. Think "Home Inspection" - but for an RV.
Secondly, it is a detailed investigation of the current condition of the RV by an inspector who has been trained
in the science of RV investigation to provide a report of the current condition of the RV.
The report consist of numerous sections to include all of the life safety elements within an RV. Photos included support the report providing confirmation of the findings.
WHY ARE RV INSPECTIONS NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER?
The RV industry is experiencing a tremendous growth period. With 65% of the preowned RVs being sold
privately, the thousands of sales taking place without dealer involvement is staggering.
No one is looking at these RVs. The buyers are blindly purchasing without an understanding of the
condition of the RV on which they are spending many thousands of dollars.
The RV Inspector can provide purchasing peace-of-mind and keep future RV owners from buying a money pit.

When the consumer hires an NRVIA Certified Inspector they can be assured they will be receiving a professional, standardized, and thorough inspection of their RV equipment.
I don’t usually take the time to write reviews, but I received such outstanding service from George, I felt I had to make the time. I’m a first-time RV buyer and rather uninformed. George spent an enormous amount of time on the phone with me before I hired him, going through the many points of inspection and explaining why they were important. But what impressed me the most is there were inspection points he indicated I could do without, in my specific case, saving me money. How refreshing!
He kept in close communication with me before, during and after the inspection, by phone, text and email, which was extremely important to me since I am out of state and was counting 100% on his inspection to make my purchase decision.
I not only came out with a great inspection report but feel much more educated about the complicated systems in the RV.
I researched and spoke with two other inspectors and neither compared to George’s patience and professionalism. I recommend him without hesitation! JH
We hired George and his wife to do a pre-purchase inspection on a 3-year-old 5th wheel that we were planning to buy from a private party. We’ve only been full-timing for 15 months, and only in a small Class C Motorhome, never a trailer. Even though we had looked the trailer over ourselves, we felt that we didn’t have the necessary experience or knowledge to make a truly informed decision about whether or not the trailer and its systems would function properly and more importantly, if it was safe to live in and tow down the road. When we first spoke by phone, George explained in detail what he would and would not be inspecting, and what the process would entail for both us as buyers and for the seller. He and his wife were extremely professional and treated us with respect and courtesy, answering our questions and making sure that all our concerns were addressed. George has a great sense of humor, and made the hours-long inspection a fun, educational experience for both us and the seller. The final report that he delivered gave us all the information we needed to feel confident in our decision to buy this rig, and also provided us with a checklist of maintenance items that we can address after the purchase. We highly recommend George and his wife if you’re ever in need of a quality RV inspection. It was money well spent!
