Getting an inspection

Does anybody have a recommendation on how to find/ arrange for a qualified individual to perform a thorough inspection of a coach prior to purchase? I am shopping for my first motor home and am aware of this essential component in the process, but since I am new, I have no established network or sources. So where do I look? I want qualified yet unbiased opinions. Should I search for someone with general knowledge or an expertise in a particular brand? How does the process work, find someone local to the location of the coach? Fly someone in? Try to negotiate taking the coach to a neutral site for inspection? Any ideas for what a thorough inspection should encompass at the very least, and how many hours that should take and what it may cost, assuming it is an hourly fee? With no experience, I could be misled simply on what the inspection should represent...I am located in the southeast, as is one of the coaches I am looking at.

Might want to check out this website and give Terry Cooper a call. He may know of some RV Inspectors in your area. He teaches a course on it.
