The reason to have a pre-purchase inspection when buying a used caravan is to uncover any hidden problems. The benefit of doing this, in the worst case scenario, is being able to step back from the purchase of a caravan that has a serious hidden problem. Or in the case of smaller, more manageable problems, at least being able to renegotiate the price.
The type of problems that can be uncovered by a pre-purchase inspection are of course many and varied. But the common, and potentially most serious problem you need to be aware of, is of course damp. Because of the sandwich construction method of caravan walls, damp can build up over time inside without being visible. When it does become visible, you are already at the stage of requiring an expensive repair. Only a pre-purchase inspection will give you that information.
Important: You should have a pre-purchase inspection carried out wherever you are buying your caravan from. Yes, even from a dealer!
Don't get caught out. Find out exactly what you are buying. Give yourself the ammunition to renegotiate to cover the costs of rectifying any problems uncovered by your pre-purchase inspection.
