An Expert Inspection, or PDI, Is A Must-Do Before Purchasing A Used RV.
After a decision has been made to purchase a used RV, experts in the RV industry highly recommend having the motorhome thoroughly inspected before it is purchased.
Pre-purchase RV inspections are otherwise known as a PDI or “Pre Delivery Inspection”. PDI is a term motorhome manufacturers use for the final operational and quality inspection given to each RV after it rolls off the production line and before it is delivered to a customer or an RV Dealer.
These inspections are critical to the manufacturer to maintain reliability, safety, quality and a good reputation within the RV industry and for the same reason, many motorhome dealers also perform PDI’s on their RVs before delivery to their customers.
It is common for a reputable RV dealer to give the new owner a “walk through” of operations covering items such as appliances, slide outs, vents and windows, electronics, entertainment system, plumbing, awnings, generator, holding tanks, A/C and Furnace, the engine, transmission, brakes and more.
