Habitation Servicing and Detailed Checks

It's important to regularly have the living areas professionally checked and serviced to maintain the safety, warranty and value of your caravan or motorhome.

At Out and About, we carry out detailed habitation servicing to the National Caravan Council Approved Workshop Scheme standards meaning that warranties from most UK manufacturers remain valid with servicing by Out and About.

Servicing is carried out by qualified specialist engineers who are certified on an annual basis.

A habitation check is always advisable before purchasing a new caravan or motorhome.


As part of a full caravan service the following equipment is checked and tested:

  • Brakes
  • Chassis
  • Towhead
  • Damp/water ingress test/report
  • External electrics – including battery
  • Water system
  • Corner steadies
  • Internal electrics
  • General bodywork condition check
  • Gas system testing – includes cooker, oven, fridge, heater


Full internal habitation services undertaken including:

  • Testing of gas cooker, oven, fridge, heater
  • Internal electrics

We can also provide in depth servicing on items not covered in the habitation service such as chassis, solar panel systems, levelling systems, fridges, freezers and more. Please get in touch to find out more.
