Howdy!

Howdy from the Texas gulf coast! I just put a deposit down yesterday on a nice looking used 2021 Wildwood X-Lite 171RBXL. Pending the outcome of a good inspection I'll be bringing it home soon. I'm sure I'll be here regularly for advice.

Hi and Welcome to FRF.
Be sure to check out the TT/5th Wheel section's Wildwood sub-forum, for model-specific information.

When you refer to an inspection, what kind are you referring to?
If you're referring to a state inspection, our state only inspects for lights and brakes (and that's questionable).

When you're doing your inspection before you sign the final papers, make certain that everything works and you don't smell mold or mildew ( be suspicious if there's an air freshener). Then make certain everything is fixed before you sign the final papers.

Welcome to the forum!

Welcome to the forum!
I have an independent RV inspector going out tomorrow morning to do a full pre-buy inspection. It all looked great to me, but I like the peace of mind knowing a pro will be looking at all the details.

Thanks all, picking it up tomorrow!

My inspector went out, only found a little bit of cracking in the roof caulk, and a cracked shower head. Everything else looks great, as I expected. Bringing it home tomorrow! Looking forward to some adventures.
