Scope of Inspection

The purpose of this Scope of Inspection is to establish a minimum, uniform standard for licensed RV Squad inspectors.

This Scope of Inspection of recreational vehicles identifies the range of services and activities that the licensed inspectors RV Squad are required to provide.

  1. An RV inspection is a limited, non-invasive, visual examination of the current condition of a recreational vehicle. An RV inspection is designed to report observed deficiencies within specific systems and components that may relate to water intrusion, leakages and perceived presence of rot and mould.
  2. An inspector provides a description of the condition of the RV based on observation of the visible and apparent condition of the structure and components at the time of the RV inspection. An RV inspection does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components. It is not an inspection to verify compliance with any applicable codes, municipal bylaws or other regulations.
  3. An RV inspection will not reveal every problem that exists or could ever exist and is not a technically exhaustive inspection.
  4. An inspection may be hindered or further limited by unforeseen conditions at the inspection site. The unforeseen conditions, indicated in the inspection report, override the stated general limitations.
