If you own a motorhome or campervan, it’s essential to book an annual motorhome habitation check to make sure your leisure vehicle is safe to live in, free from issues and performing well.

Here at Tamar Caravan Centre, we offer a comprehensive motorhome habitation check service from our modern and well-appointed 8-bay workshop. As an AWS approved workshop with a team of experienced and fully qualified engineers on-site, we’re professional, thorough, competitively priced and can get you back on the road with minimal disruption.


Simply put, a habitation check acts like a MOT for the interior of your leisure vehicle. This check involves an inspection and service of features such as the water, electric and gas systems and appliances to make sure they’re safe and in good working order; as well as inspecting for damp and water ingress.


Motorhome habitation checks are probably the most important part of responsible motorhome ownership in our opinion. Not only do you require annual checks to keep your warranty valid, but it’s a vital step in ensuring your motorhome is safe and fit for purpose by identifying issues and nipping them in the bud before they become big costly problems.

Things like damp patches, glitchy heating or a faulty window latch may feel like slightly insignificant ‘quirks’, but they can quickly snowball and end up costing you a lot of money. You wouldn’t forego a boiler service or an MOT on your car, so your motorhome should be no different. A yearly motorhome habitation service will give you complete peace of mind that your pride and joy is ready to take on any adventure and is most importantly, safe to sleep and relax in.


We thoroughly test and check the motorhome and perform a wide range of assessments, including the following:

  • Gas: Flue check, appliance inspection and testing, gas cylinder safety and security, regulator health and inspection of gas dispersal vents
  • Electrics: Testing of lights (interior and exterior) and sockets, battery health check, trip testing, RCD assessment and checking of earths and earth bonding
  • Water: Tap performance checks, water tank inspection, checking of pump, pressure switches and drain valves, toilet check, assessment of filter, housing and lagging
  • Bodywork and Interior: Damp testing, inspection of flooring, roof, external panels, furniture, window treatments and number plate
  • Safety: Checking window and door operation, checking fire extinguisher and fire blanket housing, testing of flame failure devices, smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm
