Congratulations on your new purchase through NIRVC Nashville.
I took delivery of a 2021 Entegra Emblem (Class A, gas) on September 1st, 2021 at General RV in Draper UT, and this was delayed by at least two months because of things found by my NRVIA certified inspector on June 15th... such as:
1. a front shock absorber was not attached to the frame!
2. one of the doors on the refrigerator was scratched and misaligned
3. the top sealing material on of one of the slideouts was puckered!
4. one window shade would not retract
5. the co-pilot seat had an incorrect base that made the seat too low
6. the cockpit air conditioning was not cooling as it should - this required the vehicle be sent to an authorized Ford truck service center
7. the add-on accessories had not been installed (satellite dome, 50A surge protector, stacked washer and dryer, 50A power cord reel)
The inspector's report was well-organized, easy to read, and included photos of tires, weight stickers, electrical, fuel, water services and any problems noted. I provided the full 85-page inspection report, complete with photos and findings) to the dealer and went over the expectations I had to complete the deal.
You may have discovered some of these yourself but think of your RVIA certified inspector like a home inspector that you hire to ensure what is being promised is in fact what you are buying. Ideally you involve the dealer in the inspection planning to schedule a date that ensures the inspector has access to the dealer lot, and that the motorhome will be plugged into power. I flew into Salt Lake City to be there on the day of the inspection and to liaise with the dealer, parts and service managers.
Use the inspection as leverage in completing the deal whether a house or motorhome. No money other than refundable earnest money should be paid BEFORE the inspection and UNTIL all items in the inspection are addressed satisfactorily. Once you hand over the full payment you are like yesterday's news to a dealer... vaguely remembered.
In my case I paid $750 for the inspection and thought it wise to have the inspector come back for another look on the delivery date (one more hour of his time at $75) to ensure all problems were corrected or at least planned to be corrected. He discovered that the add-on accessories all had problems! I used this as leverage to have the dealer pay for the fixes after delivery.
So, I am a believer that a professional inspection should be done as soon as possible before delivery, just like a home inspection, and used to ensure the seller delivers what they say they are delivering.
