I have purchased RV at a distance. Here is how I have done it. Pictures first, lots of them. Detailed discussions with the seller. When ready, make the money deal, rendering a deposit, contingent upon inspections. Then get a professional inspection done. based upon the outcome of the pro inspection pass on the unit, have the seller make corrections, and/or renegotiate the price. Lastly you travel and make your acceptance inspection and if all is ok, close the deal.
