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.

Fitting in the annual checks may seem like an inconvenience, so why not make them part of your holiday itinerary? You can drop your vehicle off with us and have a day or two sightseeing in Glasgow while we make sure your motorhome is safe and serviced for the year ahead.
Christophe and Martine Boiron did just that! They travelled all the way from France in their Motorhome and we carried out the Annual Habitation Check and MOT while they enjoyed some shopping and sightseeing in Glasgow. When it was ready, they picked up their Motorhome and carried on their tour of Scotland – what a great idea!
If it’s not detected and remedied in time, water ingress can become a very expensive repair. All motorhomes, regardless of model or age, can be susceptible to damp.
Manufacturers recommend that a damp check carried out at least once a year. This simple check can help prolong the life and serviceability of your motorhome whilst also helping to maintain a pleasant and comfortable holidaying environment.
The only way damp can be detected is by using a protimeter, the industry’s recognised tool for the job. This should be used by engineers who are trained and experienced in damp repairs.

Success (at last)! I took my Chieftain out for a run (40 miles) to check the diesel filter yesterday and it was bone dry! Thank you so much for listening and addressing the problem. Please say thanks to David & his Dad too for supporting and advising me since the first day. Regards Joan Brown & Elaine
