Helping You Make an Informed Decision so You can Travel and Live in Your RV With Confidence

At North Star RV Inspections LLC, we want to help you make your RV dreams come true by providing you with a thorough and unbiased RV inspection report of your RV’s performance, condition, and overall livability. My name is Wade Johnson and I am an NRVIA Certified RV Inspector. I love everthing about RVs and camping and became an RV inspector to help others avoid the problems I have had in the past with my own RVs.  I provide a variety of services to give you the information you need to make an informed decision.

My Story

My love of camping led me to purchase six RVs over the past 30 years. I am continuously looking for ways to improve efficiencies and experiences while RVing. I have decided to take my passion for RVing and build it into a new career. I will use my experience owning and operating RVs plus my electrical and mechanical knowledge as I inspect RVs and train you how to use your RV.

I am an NRVIA Certified RV Inspector, NRVTA Registered Technician and a licensed Master Electrician in Minnesota and North Dakota.

North Star RV Inspections believes the RV buyer should not have to struggle to know if the new or used RV they would like to buy is right for them. We want you to have the knowledge and confidence you need to make that RV buying decision easy. Serving Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota year-around.

Comprehensive Inspections

North Star RV Inspections LLC performs a complete diagnosis of your RV. Life safety items, major systems function, possible water intrusion, and more are included in our comprehensive inspection report. I take note of every component in the RV down to the smallest of details. There are 33 to 164+ points of inspection, depending on the type of unit and the level of inspection you choose. Here are just a few key points:

  • Inspection of RV Exterior (roof, sidewall, end caps and seals for possible water intrusion)
  • Inspection of RV Interior (walls, ceiling, floors, doors and cabinetry for damage)
  • All Electrical Systems (12 Volt DC and 120 Volt DC)
  • Life Safety Systems (LP leak test, hot skin test, smoke/CO detectors, LP detectors, fire extinguishers etc.)
  • Tires and Running Gear
  • Plumbing System (fresh water system and waste water system)
  • Appliances (water heater, furnace, A/C, refridgerator, cooktop/stove and more)

Why Should You Get an RV Inspection?

People would never buy a house without an inspection; you want to find out if there is anything wrong with the house and items that may need to be repaired. This is the same reason why it is beneficial to have an RV inspection. RVs go through all sorts of conditions from strong winds to extreme temperatures. Getting an RV inspection will help to discover how the RV operates and the overall condition of the RV before you purchase it.

NRVIA certified inspectors offer the most comprehensive RV inspection available. Inspection reports will be from 50 to 100 pages with up to 100 photos and videos. RV inspection reports will include Life Saftey issues, Major issues, Minor issues, Comments and information useful throughout the life of the RV.  

Advantages/Who Benefits from Getting an RV Inspection


For buyers, whether buying used or new, an RV inspection ensures you have complete understanding of the condition of the RV you are buying.

An RV inspection protects would-be buyers from dealers or private owners who would sell RVs with unknown operation and performance issues. An RV inspection may allow a buyer to negotiate better prices depending on the RV’s current condition.


The benefit to you as the seller, is to get a 3rd party unbiased look at the condition of your RV. 

Set yourself apart and build trust by offering a completed inspection before the sale. An NRVIA certified inspection report will give them peace of mind.

My service gives sellers a punch list of issues and potential problem areas that they can address before listing their RV. Doing these repairs and maintenance can increase the sale value of the RV and give potential buyers the confidence to make a purchase.

Lenders/Banking Institutions

Lender and banks that are loaning money for the puchase of the RV want to make sure the RV is in good enough condition to be held as collateral for the loan.


Have you just obtained a used RV on trade or even a new RV from the factory and want to get the most from the sale? Consider having North Star RV Inspections LLC evaluate the RV instead of  having your busy technicians spend time on it.

While your RV technicians are busy doing what makes your business money, have North Star RV Inspections LLC inspect the used/new RV for you.

Insurance Companies

Insurance companies would like to know if there is any evidence of pre-existing condtions that could cost them alot of money a year or two later.


Helping You Make an Informed Purchasing Decision

An independent 3rd party inspection can highlight the features and potential liabilities of the RV. This can result in you saving money from unexpected problems that may have been overlooked. Contact me to get an RV inspected today.
