Things to know:

  • When you do receive a phone call or email from an NRVIA certified RV Inspector, be sure to ask them for their Points of Inspection list in addition to the pricing and availability information.
  • Often, these inspectors will charge you a mileage fee if they have to go out of their normal route to accommodate your request.
