No Inspection, No Deal.

Simple as that.

No way would I consider buying a house w/o an inspection, and the money those things cost, just like buying a house. Except, a motorhome has a lot more things to go wrong than a house setting on a concrete slab.

Run, don't walk.

My biggest single mistake of our first year of ownership was assuming that a "warranty" would fix things that break.

Lets look at the situation .There is a six month warrantee left. He just found a major problem that is not covered.He wants to dump it before the problem gets worse.No inspection?I don't think so.

I as an owner would welcome a inspection. It will give you a little recourse if there is a unknown issue ( as a owner) after the sale.

Cool

I too would sleep much better agreeing to spend a (huge to me) great deal of money on a used vehicle after I had as much information as possible to make my decision. Not being able to conduct an inspection would fill me with an impossible case of the what ifs? I would never be able to sleep, every noise that came from the coach would be suspect, and I would not have the confidence you need to make a long trip.....
There are a heck of a lot of RV's on the market now, there is no need to rush into a purchase until you are as satisfied as possible you have all the information you can get...
Good Luck and let us know how this turns out.

It is obvious your gut is telling you something is wrong or you would not have asked the question. LISTEN TO YOUR GUT!!! An independent inspection is not to much to ask.

there are plenty of RV's out there, I would to be skeptical if the owner hedges against a pre-buy inspection by a certified shop.
its a win for both parties
if the rig comes back clean, then you get piece of mind
as well as the seller knowing his mind is clear ( although in today's world a clear mind is a lost art)

if its not a good report....you protected yourself from possible future expenses

IF there is nothing wrong with the coach and you are paying the inspector then this guy is nuts not to have you inspect it. On the other hand, he has a lot of knowledge of his products, plus techs and to show how good it is.
I saved a friend several thousand when I suggested he take the coach he was considering to a local diesel mechanic for a pre-purchase. Engine just smelled too strongly of diesel to me. Turns out there were a couple of injectors going bad and it chanced to rain while he had it. Leaked like a seive around the roof mounted AC. The widow lady who was selling it apologized for the condition of the roof and thanked him for telling her about the injectors.

Sounds like he just wants to dump it and not have a hassel that an inspection may crunch the deal. I would not place any value on the ext. warranty, way to many exclusions for these things. Don't let the buyer smoothtalk you into something you are not fully comfortable with. Don't be rude but just let the seller know that without an inspection you just can't consider the deal and then be on your way. Another deal will jump in front of you real soon with this economy.

You are offering to pay to have the vehicle independently inspected for your purchase consideration. If the inspection is deemed a good one in your opinion, then you'll buy the coach. If the inspection is deemed a poor one in your opinion, then you won't.

The seller has no risk or gamble here. And he won't do it??????

I smell a dead, dirty, rotten rat.

Real simple, no inspection...no sale. What is he trying to hide?
