Hello all,
I'm a newbe here but have been RVing for 14 years. I am looking at a 2016 flagstaff and want to check to check it out like one would an auto. I'e tried carfax but they don't seem to handle RVs. Is there a way to get this done?

Thanks in advance

A good dealer will have as much information as you need to make an informed decision. A not-so-good dealer will probably tell you what you want to hear just to make a sale. Good luck!

Carfax doe not do a good job reporting defects on cars so even if they did RVs I would not trust them. Note their disclaimer.

Do your home work.

What I do like about Carfax is they have a list of each vehicles registrations. One truck had been registered in 3 or 4 states and was only 3 years old. I was looking for a one owner and Carfax was helpful in that respect. Of course, that
was motor vehicle, not RV.
