The Watson Chronicles - The Case of the Hot Fifth Wheel

These are only a sampling of the items discovered by the NRVIA Certified inspector on this pre-owned Fifth Wheel.

Key learnings are:

  1. Red Flag warnings when a seller/dealer refuses to allow a pre-purchase inspection. The hot skin and under rated tires on this RV could have caused serious, potentially fatal injury.

  2. Always contract for a post-purchase inspection if you decide to take the risk and buy the RV prior to an inspection.

The NRVIA standards provide for a 'deep-dive' inspection and detailed report that will provide you with the knowledge of the true condition of the RV so that you may make an informed purchase decision. Whether new or pre-owned, an NRVIA Certified Inspection is an investment that pays you dividends.

I hope this installment of The Watson Chronicles was informative. If you are buying a new or pre-owned RV you can find an Independent NRVIA Certified RV Inspector at
