5 Reasons to Have Your For-Sale RV Inspected


Deciding to sell your RV can raise a few questions. How much should I sell it for? What’s it like to sell on RV Trader? Should I get my unit inspected? If you’re thinking about that last question, you should know that a pre-sale inspection provides sellers and potential buyers upfront information about the condition of the for-sale RV. While there are several different ways to get your unit inspected, RV Trader Assurance powered by Lemon Squad allows private sellers to order pre-purchase inspections for their RVs when listing their unit on RV Trader’s online marketplace. To help you understand the benefits of this service, here are five reasons to have your for-sale RV inspected.

1. Fast and Convenient

You won’t need to worry about bringing your RV to a mechanic or dealership, then waiting hours or days for them to perform the inspection. With RV Trader Assurance, an Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)-certified Lemon Squad inspector comes directly to you, the seller, for an on-site inspection. This thorough inspection covers both the mechanical and cosmetic condition of the RV. The inspection report is sent through a digital dashboard that is typically available the following business day. 

2. Can Help Determine Pricing

A full inspection can uncover damage or issues with your for-sale RV. If you find problems during the inspection, you’ll be able to determine if it’s worth paying for the repair. Or, you may decide to lower the value of your RV instead of making the repair. In contrast, if an inspection delivers a clean bill of health, you can use that to increase the sale price of your RV and note that in your listing description.

3. Makes Your Listing Stand Out

Once your inspection is finished, your listing will receive a certified RV Trader Inspection Badge, which showcases your ability to provide an inspection report to prospective buyers. The Inspection Badge will stand out among the other listings on, catching the eye of interested customers.

4. Builds Buyers’ Confidence

Knowing that an RV has already been inspected by a trusted third party offers buyers peace of mind about the unit they’re browsing. Shoppers can request the inspection report, which includes the following information:

  • Comprehensive examination of the internal and external structure
  • Complete mechanical inspection
  • Appliance inspection
  • Road test
  • Over 40 high-quality photos

While RV shopping online has increased in popularity, many shoppers still have concerns. This detailed inspection acts as a gesture of goodwill. Potential buyers will feel more informed and confident in their purchase decision, increasing the likelihood that they’ll buy the RV.

5. Can Lead to a Quicker Sale

A pre-sale inspection of your RV can eliminate the back and forth between buyers and sellers. If you’ve already completed an inspection of your unit, you’ll be able to say with certainty that your unit is in great condition, or be able to address any issues upfront with a customer. The less negotiation, the faster you can seal the deal and turn your used RV into a profit.

Conclusion: Owning an RV is an investment, and now it’s time to cash in. Getting an inspection on your for-sale RV is a quick and easy way to figure out the value of your unit and make potential buyers feel more confident about purchasing your camper, which can lead to a faster sale.
