RVIA’s standards inspection program is one of the association’s “greatest” member benefits, allowing new inspectors such as Tyler Reamer to support the RV industry.
The standards department maintains a professional inspector team that promotes safety enhancement adopted by RVIA’s Board of Directors regarding RV and Park Model RV construction. The inspector team conducts more than 2,000 unannounced inspections of member company RV manufacturing plants annually, the association stated.
“It is exciting because I have always been a hands-on kind of guy,” Reamer said. “It is nice to be on the other side of things. I have always done a lot of manual labor throughout my life and this is a labor-intensive job but it’s definitely more mental. It is a really unique job. I am enjoying it.”
Along with providing feedback on the construction of RVs to industry standards, RVIA inspectors provide educational resources and hands-on training to manufacturer plant contacts during inspections.
“Open communication is key,” Reamer said. “We are there to be an educator. We are there for them to help them build a better product for the millions of RV buyers to enjoy.”
