Habitation Tests Good or Bad ?

With a car you have an annual MOT test which covers you against basic safety and mechanical tests.

In a motorhome you have the same test but a motorhome is further complicated due to its leisure facilities such as Gas / Water / Electricity which go untested during an MOT.

Considering you are driving around a vehicle which contains plenty of explosive potential and being a sizeable investment surely we should be testing them in a mandatory fashion.

At Outdoorbits we offer habitation service testing for all Motorhomes and Caravans alike.
