You may be familiar with the term habitation check, but do you know what actually gets checked during the inspection of your motorhome? In this article I am going to discuss the broad headings of the areas that are covered by a habitation check and then direct you to the actual checklist that we use when carrying out a check, so that you see exactly what we look at and report on.
Firstly, let's look at the broad headings of our motorhome checklist:
Fire and safety
Under body elements
From this list, you can see that the inspection is looking at two important areas: the safety of your motorhome and making sure the habitation area is a safe environment for you and your family to spend time in. Secondly, the condition of your motorhome to ensure it maintains its value and to catch small problems early, before they turn into expensive repairs.
Now, if you are interested in seeing exactly what a check covers (and why they take hours to complete!), I am going to direct you to a different page on our website. If you click on motorhome habitation check, this will take you to a page where you can watch an explainer video and, if you scroll down the page a little, you can download a pdf document of our habitation checklist.
This should answer all of your questions about what a motorhome habitation check includes. However, if you still have any questions please do call us on 0333 2536738. Finally, you will find our habitation check engineers professional and friendly and they are happy to answer any questions you have during the inspection.
