AWS approved mobile habitation checks for your motorhome or caravan

What is a habitation check?

Select your vehicle

A habitation check is a detailed examination of the living area of your motorhome or caravan.

There are important reasons to have regular habitations checks:

• Safety - to protect your family and loved ones
• Identify problems early - catching a problem early will prevent a quick fix turning into a costly repair
• Warranty - to avoid invalidating your warranty
• Maintaining value - a history of habitation checks and maintenance will enhance the value and saleability of your motorhome or caravan

Habitation checks entail a thorough inspection of the habitation area of your motorhome or caravan. The inspection is carried out by a specialist motorhome and caravan engineer. It follows a set procedure and highly detailed inspection plan. It covers dangers such as fire risk, ventilation and gas systems as well as problem areas like damp, water systems, electrical systems and bodywork. You receive a full report afterwards with observations of problems identified and action required.
