Habitation Checks

An annual motorhome habitation check is important for a number of reasons, including safety, performance and resale value. On new motorhomes, you’ll need to have the service done to keep the warranty valid. When you’re out of the warranty period, regular habitation checks will help your motorhome retain its resale value. Many buyers won’t take on a motorhome which doesn’t have a complete service history. Most importantly, the check inspects the habitable areas of your motorhome for safety and operational performance.

The Motorhome Repair Centre is an NCC (National Caravan Council) Approved Workshop and we follow their service checklist as well as specific manufacturer guidelines. The full NCC recommended series of tests for a habitation service is available to download here. It covers everything from the underbody and the bodywork to gas, electrics and the water system and takes in the region of 3 hours to complete.

Our service engineers use a range of specialist equipment to thoroughly check the living area of your motorhome and you will be provided with a Gas Safe installation certificate, electrical testing certificate and damp readings at the end.

Please note that a Habitation Service does not include servicing of the base vehicle and road legal requirements. We undertake all motorhome servicing and MOT work so ask us for a competitive quote.

Our Annual Habitation Service is competitively priced at £210 (inc VAT) and includes a Water Ingress Report.
