Hello, thank you for taking the time to consider Blue Ribbon RV Inspection and Service, LLC.  We, know you’ve got choices, that's why “We Try Harder” (yes, we copied that from the Avis rental car company’s TV commercials of the early ‘60s).
We know that being comfortable with and having confidence in your RV’s systems and components is the critical 1st step towards achieving peace of mind so can enjoy your time and experiences in your RV.

It’s important to us to do the right thing.  We firmly believe in and abide by the National Recreational Vehicle Inspector Association's (NRVIA) Code of Ethics and adhere to it’s Standards of Practice.  Tim is both, a Registered RV Technician in Good Standing with the RV Technician Association of America (RVTAA) and a Certified RV Inspector in Good Standing with the NRVIA.

Over the past 20+ years, we’ve accumulated a trove of invaluable experience through several different channels, all of which directly transfer over to RV Inspection and Service.  We've owned, managed and maintained rental properties, so we know what to look for and how to identify issues before they turn into emergencies.  We diagnose what’s wrong and ultimately repair, or replace the affected components, if replacement is necessary.  In addition to our rental experience, Tim has learned many hard won lessons from working through many hundres of transactions with commercial trucks and vans Nationwide; sourcing, evaluating, buying, reconditioning, marketing, selling and utimately delivering the completed vehicle to the satisfied End User, think cranes, dump trucks, garbage trucks, boom trucks, emergency response vehicles, etc.

So, whether it’s the Inspection of a new or pre-owned RV, or a Service Call, we can help you acheive confidence in your RV so you can spend your time enjoying life.
We offer several levels of Inspection for all types of RVs from Pop-Ups to Class A Diesel Pushers.  All Inspections include a detailed report of that call out areas of concern.  Some levels of Inspections include up to 100 photos as well as 360 photos of the interior and Running Gear and Chassis as well as video of all moving parts in operation.   We highly recommend Fluid Sampling, (Oil, coolant, transmission fluid) for both RVs, generators, tow vehicles and Toads.  Some levels of Inspection include Fluid Sampling for both the RV and the towing vehicle.

Service Calls and Mainteance Plan visits are vital aspects of our work.  A/C and Heat Pump troubles, Furnace issues, Water Heater difficulities, please call us.  Yes, that means Black Tank stoppages too – it's a crappy job (pun intended), but someone has to do it.

We’re Part-Timers, we still have a Sticks and Bricks.  We winter in Phoenix, it’s a great place to be, 7-ish – 8-ish months of the year.  However, once it gets to be that "but it's A Dry Heat" time of year, we typically head North for a few weeks, typically to Durango, CO or Flathead Lake, MT or Stanley, ID.

Thank you for taking your time to read about us.  If you feel as though we’re a fit for your wants/needs, please reach out –  I'll (Tim) will get back to you as quickly as I can. Text is typically best, 602-721-0812 in even the worst cell phone coverage areas.  A phone call is always welcome, of course, happy to talk with you.  However, please don’t be offended if I don’t pick up during the work day, I’m probably in the middle of an Inspection or a Service Call and want to stay focused on the task at hand.
Hope all is well for you and yours -be well.
