Welcome to RV Appraisals

Terry Craven[Top of the South]
Hi, I'm Terry Craven. A cabinetmaker by trade with 15 years experience presently working in the motorhome industry, with a further 20 years in the marine industry. My business, RV Appraisals, has the know how to look after your interests. Owning a motorhome, campervan, caravan, or 5th-wheeler should give you many years of enjoyment of seeing this wonderful country of ours.
What is a pre-purchase inspection? An RV Appraisals pre-purchase inspection provides you, the RV buyer, peace of mind about your purchase decision. The result of the inspection will be a report outlining what was identified during the course of the inspection which will help in your decision. It will also be of great benefit for pricing negotiations. Spending a little up front can save you thousands of dollars and hours of time dealing with repairs after purchase. Do you live in another part of New Zealand? Or worried about wasting time and money traveling to look at a RV? Let me do it for you.
It's about peace of mind.


RV Appraisals provides a variety of inspections - whether it is your current recreational vehicle or a prospective recreational vehicle:
  • Pre-purchase inspection for the buyer
  • Pre-sale inspection for the seller
  • Arrange for a mechanical inspection
  • Pre-holiday inspection
  • Annual inspection
