Trouble finding Pre-Purchase inspector

We are beginning our search for our first Class A and are trying to find someone who can inspect them for us - on site. We are in NE Ohio. I'm looking for someone independent instead of taking it to camping world, because one of the ones we are looking at is at Camping World, so I'd hardly want them to do the inspection. Does anyone know of anyone, or ideas on how I could track someone down? Thanks in advance.

I've had good success just googleing 'RV Mobile Service in [the town I'm in]'. Of course if you're in a remote area, you might have to pay a steep travel charge. If you're lucky and have 2-3 listed, you can call them and get a feeling if they're up to the task. You might need two, one for the house and all appliances, and another one for the chassis, engine, & drive train. I understand it's around $300 for a full inspection and printed eval. You probably want to hire someone who's a certified RV Tech.

Thank you both. I tried the "RV Mobile Service in.." and didn't have any luck. I did go to a couple RV Dealer websites and obtained some names of certified techs. We are going to call and see if any are willing to do a check independent from their dealer, when we find something. I read that if a tech is employed by a dealer, that they may try and talk me out of what I'm looking at in order to try to sell me something from their lot instead. Has anyone found this to be the case?
Rocknrun.... that is a GREAT site. I've found a couple I'm going to check out.
Thank you again.
