5th wheel inspector
« on: February 07, 2018, 07:13:42 PM »

I am looking at a 5th wheel out of state and am wondering about the typical cost for a 5th wheel inspection for a 12000 pound 36 foot fifth wheel. It is located in Wisconsin if that helps.

Thank you!

Likely 3 to 500 dollars.

Get more info on RV inspections at:

An basic inspection will likely be $400-$500, but you can buy a more thorough one.   You can also hire a mobile RV tech and tell him what you want checked and pay him by the hour to do so. He probably won't do a written report, just a phone conversation (which you also pay for). An hour or two of the tech's time will get you a basic eyes-on look from an experienced person. That's probably $150-$200.

This firm gets $445 for a 5W inspection:
