RV Pre-Purchase Inspection
When purchasing a recreational vehicle, three kinds of inspections are important.
- Engine and Mechanical - This inspection is of the engine and mechanical components. The inspection assures that the engine is in good running order and that the mechanical condition is safe for driving or towing purposes.
- Amenities and Features - These would typically include heat, lighting, bathrooms, kitchen and air conditioner etc. The various components can be easily checked by manually testing all features and amenities.
- Leakages, Rot and Mould - This inspection deals with defects that are most damaging to the RV structure, could result in huge financial costs, and cause adverse health affects. More importantly, the defects are mostly hidden deep in the structure as they are invisible to the human eye.
Inspections for item #1 and #2 above are commonly available or can be done by a handyman. We specialize in inspections that address #3.
Our pre-purchase inspection makes use of infrared technology and a range of state-of-the-art sensory devices.
We focus on detection and analysis of:
- Trapped moisture, invisible to the human eye.
- Leakages and dampness inside the roof, sidewalls, floor and storage compartments.
- Defects that may contribute to, or cause water entry.
- Carbon monoxide emission levels
- Propane leaks
- Rot, caused by current or historical leaks
- Abnormally high relative humidity resulting in mould, bacteria and dust mites.
- Abnormally low relative humidity that stimulates respiratory infections, allergic rhinitis and asthma.
- Infestation of mould
