A ‘Habitation check’ is an annual examination and service of the living section of your motorhome, campervan or caravan. Please ask if your free dealer warranty requires a return to base for this service.
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 from turning into a costly repair
• Warranty – to avoid invalidating your manufacturer or Engineer Aftercare warranty
• Maintaining value – a history of habitation checks and maintenance will underpin 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 afterward with observations of problems identified and the action required.
I am buying a vehicle, should I get a pre-purchase inspection?
The AWS operates a regular service to arrange a Pre-Owned, Pre-Purchase Inspection or ‘PPI’ at Find Out More about PPI
The aim of the AWS Pre-Owned Pre-Purchase Inspections is to provide a potential buyer with a detailed report on the visual and/or operational condition of the caravan or motorhome they are looking to purchase before they commit to buy.
You can expect the following from an AWS Pre-Owned Pre-Purchase Inspection;
- Inspection of the safety critical elements
- Gas soundness check
- Full damp inspection
- Wheels and tyres (caravan only)
Along with this, it will also cover other important areas such as the operation of a caravan-mover which is often a deciding factor when purchasing and can be carried out a place to suit you.

Engineer Aftercare says: When we launched Engineer Aftercare Ltd in January 2020, the very first thing we did was to agree to exclusively use AWS-approved workshops for habitation and other repairs. Our ability to forge the relationship was because we agreed to pay a much higher hourly rate for work completed to include all AWS members across the UK, which is often declined by other warranty companies as too expensive. But we knew that the real peace of mind for our customers is ‘How good will the work completed be on my Caravan, Camper or Motorhome’?
NCC Director Sarah Wigmore says: ‘All AWS fixed and mobile engineers are fully trained and inspect every vehicle to the highest industry standards possible, which is why we have over 570 Manufacturers, Main Dealers and Workshop members’.
