More than

800,000

people buy a new or used RV in the United States each year.
One thing every RV (new and used) has in common;

they ALL have something wrong with them.

Do you know what is wrong with the RV you are planning to buy?


Joy > Regret

You buy an RV to bring your family JOY, to make special memories, to see far away places, taking your dog, cat, and fish with you. You don’t buy an RV to have REGRET, wishing you had known the true condition of the RV BEFORE you bought it.

TAKE THE FIRST STEP

It was good to chat with you today.

You can read Google reviews of my service here: Google Reviews

Also, check out my social media links *below* to get an idea of my personality and the type of info I provide.

Here are some links to inspection reports I’ve conducted:
5th Wheel inspection report with videos
Class A inspection report

IMPORTANT:
The following items are required to be performed by the current owner/dealership *prior to the start* of the inspection in order for the inspection to be complete and thorough:
1. Hook up full electricity (50amp if RV is a 50amp unit / 30amp if RV is a 30amp unit).
2. Hook up Freshwater.
3. Hook up to Sewer (La Mesa does not have sewer hook-ups)
4. The refrigerator turned on for 12 hours if equipped with an RV absorption refrigerator (Not required for residential refrigerators).
5. At least 1/4 tank of propane.
6. If there is a generator, enough fuel to run the generator for 1 hour.
If all these conditions are not met, the inspection can continue, however, some items may not be fully evaluated.

I’ve attached two documents to this email:
1. Inspection Points for a Certified RV Inspection. This document has pricing information at the bottom for Certified Inspections and Fluid Analysis.
2. Fluid analysis FAQ (something you may want to consider for a generator).

When you’re ready to move forward, here is a link to a form on my website. If you fill that out, it will give me everything I need to draw up the contract and invoice. https://rvshepherd.com/info-for-rv-inspection/

This may be a lot of information at one time…but I want to make sure and give you everything you need to make an informed decision.

Call or text anytime. I’m glad to help.
