Do you want to see if your new assembly-line RV or a new-to-you RV is safe and ready to use?
Do you want to go camping but don't know how to pick the RV right for you and then use it?
Looking for quality services but want to avoid the hassle of lugging your RV to a shop where it will sit?
Central PA RV Inspection & Consulting, LLC was founded by Derek Pauling, owner and operator, a lover of camping, safety and helping people. Derek grew up camping in numerous family RVs and has been an owner of his own travel trailer since 2018. When he was ready to upgrade from his first to second one, he engrossed himself in learning all he could about all of the RVs on the market, the diverse floor plans, the way they are all constructed and weight distributions. He realized there was way more to the search then he realized to pick the right fit for his family and his truck. He purchased his upgrade and immersed himself in learning all he could about the RV and understanding how everything worked. He strives to be the most responsible RV owner he can be to assure his family's ongoing safety, maintain his unit to make it last as long as it can, and to be mindful of financial savings if he can fix it himself.
In 2021, Derek decided to pursue his passion of working with RVs. He attended the National RV Training Academy (NRVTA) and became a Registered Technician and a Certified RV Inspector with the National Recreational Vehicle Inspectors Association (NRVIA). Now with the creation of Central PA RV Inspection & Consulting, Derek is ready to help you with your new or used RV!

If you are selling an RV, inspections can help show the integrity of the RV and that you aren't hiding anything--hopefully resulting in a sale! The reports will provide the buyer with detailed photos and descriptions of their new rig. Inspections are something some buyers are looking for.
On the flip side, if you're the buyer, inspections will show you the ins and outs of the RV whether it's new or used. With RVs being made on an assembly line, it's nice to know your specific rig is ready-to-go! When it's pre-owned, it's reassuring to know what you are getting yourself into.
From Class A,B,C motor homes to Travel Trailers and Fifth wheels, Derek provides the industry leading pre-sale & pre-purchase inspections, guided by the NRVIA code of ethics and standards of practice.
With an inspection, you will know exactly what you are getting into. Do not fall into a money pit with your RV ever again!

Derek comes to you and your RV to perform the inspection. The service includes a detailed report of all that was inspected for your review and keeping. The higher the level of inspection, the more information you get. Each inspection also includes 40-100 photos, depending on the level of inspection purchased. The photos show you everything that was inspected, whether it was acceptable or concerning, according to the NRVIA standards of practice.
All inspections check for potential life safety issues (including propane leaks, if fire extinguishers are up-to-date and charged, carbon monoxide and smoke alarms, electrical issues and more). The higher the level of inspection, the more that is examined. There are so many things in an RV that can impact your safety that you don't want to miss!
With detailed photos and descriptions, you will have a top-of-the-line report including: inspections of the roof, underbelly, suspension components, tires, walls, interior, water systems, electronics, floors, propane, electricity and more!
Inspections take anywhere from 4-8 hours depending on the level of inspection and size of the RV. Full reports will be completed and sent back to you within 24 hours after the inspection is completed!
