Welcome to iRV2. I don't know a thing about buying and selling RVs in the Land Down-under. I would imagine that, like in the states you can find an independent RV repairman and pay him some thing like (US rates) $200.00 to inspect all of the systems and give you an unbiased report. Look at any mobile repair services.

My recollection is that Australia has unique regulations and requirements governing their RVs that make importation challenging at best. I suggest you investigate what you'll face in importing an RV into the country.
