Inspection Results

Hi all,

I'm in the process of buying a used Newmar coach and since I am not in the US right now, I had an independent inspector look at the unit. The report came up with some things that need to be repaired or replaced properly, and some things that need to be serviced.

Biggest points are the proper removal and reapplication of all sealants on the roof and taking care of a rust spot at the front cargo door (still covered by colour, but definitely big enough to worry me).

Now, what would be your expectation: would you expect the dealer to repair everything and put it into proper shape? In essence, he offered a well taken care of and maintained vehicle and once these repairs and services are done, it would be exactly that.

The dealer has already signalised that they would take care of the minor issues, but some of the things might not be all that minor.

Let me hear your thoughts.

I would be concerned about the dealer doing a quality job on the roof. To do all the caulking properly is a rather large job if a complete removal is required.
