Certified Pre-Owned is somewhat new to the Recreational Industry, although it has been the buzz in the automobile industry for some time. Certified Pre-Owned RVs must go through inspections by trained technicians and are also subject to age limits, good maintenance, and certain mileage limits (if the unit is motorized). To ensure you get the best, most reliable recreational vehicle possible, scan CPO listings first. As the result of stringent inspection criteria, Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are guaranteed or certified by the dealer.
Not only is the drive train inspected, but coach components such as AC, generators, refrigerators, leveling jacks and much more are checked. If something isn't working properly or isn't up to your standards, it should be repaired or replaced.
The best way to describe a CPO RV is one that needs very little reconditioning or was reconditioned to original factory specifications.
As a result of stringent guidelines and strict criteria associated with the CPO qualification process, Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are guaranteed, or certified, by the dealer. Keep in mind that the benefit of a dealers CPO unit is the ability to have it repaired at any authorized service center rather than at the selling dealers facility.
