Inspector Needed - Bates RV in Tampa
Hi everyone...

I am very interested in purchasing a certain new trailer at Bates in Tampa. I'm in Louisiana and while I've seen only a couple pictures of the trailer from Bates (and I know it DOES have some filiform) I would greatly appreciate someone more keen to the issues with Airstreams than the dealer staff to inspect the trailer for me before I put money down on it and make it there myself...

The trailer is at Bates in Tampa.

Is anyone out there who would be willing to go take a good look at this trailer and take some thorough pics?

I've checked out the inspector list but the only one listed in the Tampa area hasn't been on the forum since 2006...

Please let me know anyone knows who might be able to help me out with this.

Thanks again! :) :)

If it's new at a dealer, you don't need an inspector if you are serious about buying.

Give them a deposit over the phone, have your financing in line before you go and tie up the loose ends when you arrive.

Put an inspection clause in your contract that allows you to get out of the deal if the trailer doesn't meet your expectations and they are not willing or unable to bring it up to speed.

Common practice these days.
