About Us

Meet Your Expert

My name is Andrew, and I’m a seasoned professional with over 20 years of experience in the world of recreational vehicles. I’ve dedicated my career to craftsmanship, precision, and understanding the intricacies of RVs. With a background in wooden boat building and more than two decades specializing in motorhome and caravan building, repair, and maintenance, I’ve seen it all.
My journey has led me to a unique role in the industry. I noticed a gap in the market – a need for pre-purchase inspections. So, I founded RV Inspections to empower buyers with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions.

Customer Comments

Having utilised the services of Andrew Tapp – Motorhome and Caravan Guru – over the last ten years I’m pleased to provide this testimonial accordingly.

As a traveling business owner my 7m motorhome is esall-encompassingthe importance of all- encompassing specialist advice cannot be overstated.

From roof repairs to cabinet handles, from electrical to bumpers to awnings, door hinges, lockers, plumbing, AV … Andrew’s vast knowledge has provided a solution every time.

I cannot think of a more knowledgeable, honest, and all-round good guy to provide independent advice when purchasing a motorhome or caravan. His experience and in-depth knowledge is second to none and I, myself would not consider the purchase of any motorhome or caravan without Andrew’s professional assessment.
Yours Sincerely

We had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Andrew when we commissioned him to custom build our motorhome.
Throughout the build we were constantly impressed by his craftsmanship and attention to detail. This was our first motorhome, so we were pleased that we were able to rely on his wealth of knowledge of building and repairing motorhomes.
Andrew’s pleasant personality and sense of humour made him easy to get along with, and he was always patient with two newcomers to the motor
home lifestyle.
