shop near Sacramento for pre-purchase ins

Looking at a coach in Nevada City. Is there a good shop nearby, possibly around Sacramento, to do a good pre-purchase chassis inspection if coach passes my house inspection?

There is a camping World in Vacaville. Ca along side of I-80. Exit 57
A call to them may help you find someone. Call 800-448-1253
5065 Quinn Rd 95688 is the zip.
I've used this store very nice people there.

Can't say as I'd recommend Camping World for PPI work. They are a good place for buying stuff, & some installations. There is a CW off Rocklin Road exit on I-80, but again...
If you need a fully qualified chassis shop, try Sacramento Truck Center, 916-286-2000. If you worry about the engine, you could escalate to Cummins West in West Sacramento- 916-371-0630. If worried about hydraulics, Berendsen Fluid Power also in West Sac: 916-372-0550. If house issues, any good local mobile service outfit would do; there is a Norcold guy in the Sac area whose name I could scare up.
If its an Alpine Coach, Apex or SE I sent you a PM, if its an Avalanche definitely call me.

Lots of good advice on pre-purchase check lists and so on. If you dont mind, let us know some things like miles, RV frig vs residential, any other extras like an upgrades sat dish, etc. Born on date for tires is also critical--anything over 5-6 years old will need to be replaced at $3000+.....Basically, let us know what you plan to offer/pay and we can help you assess the deal.....
