Default Pre-buy inspection in western WA state

Greetings! I'm looking to pick up an RV, likely an RV-6, and have found one in western WA that is for sale. I've given it a preliminary examination with the owner, and it looks like a good buy, but I'm no expert and I wouldn't want to sink mid-five-figures into an a/c that has an expensive flaw or that needs work.

Is there a list of RV inspectors by state, or could anyone point me to someone who is available in western WA, and specifically the Arlington area? Thanks! Oh, and I'd also like to find someone who could give me transition training in an RV in the area... don't know where to look for this info.

Call the local EAA chapter at Arlington. They must have a billion RVs up there.:-) Anyway they would most likely offer some good guidance

John,

Good luck on your RV search!
