What is a Habitation Check?

Habitation checks are the perfect way to ensure your campervan is in a safe condition. By following a set procedure and inspection plan, our specialist engineers will thoroughly inspect the habitation area of your vehicle. This ensures you can travel with peace of mind, knowing that your campervan is properly maintained and safe.

Our comprehensive plan checks dangers such as fire risk, ventilation and gas systems as well as water systems, electrical systems and the underside of your vehicle. You will receive full certification after your test and the opportunity to have us fix any issues that have been identified.

Frequently asked questions

Is there a legal requirement?

There is no legal requirement to have a habitation check done unless you are renting out your campervan as a business.

How often do you recommend having a Habitation Check done?

For new vehicles it's likely that you should not need a Habitation Check done during your warranty period. We would recommend having a Habitation Check done every 12 months after your warranty has expired.

Can I have a Habitation Check done while my van conversion is still within warranty?

Yes, we can perform a Habitation Check within your campervan conversions warranty period. The check itself is not covered by warranty and payment will be required, however, if we are to find any issues during the check these will be fixed for free under your Jerba Campervans warranty. 

How long does it take?

We require 2 - 3 hours to complete the Habitation Check. We may require additional time for any repairs you would like done.

Do I need to bring anything to my appointment?

We would appreciate if you can bring your mains hook up lead so we can check that this is in good working order.

How soon should I get a Habitation Check done on my new van?

For new vehicles it's likely that you should not need a Habitation Check done during your warranty period. We would recommend having a Habitation Check done every 12 months after your warranty has expired.

Are your engineers qualified to carry out the checks?

Yes, our engineers are fully trained and certificated.

Will there be any additional costs?

After we perform our tests we will produce a report with any potential issues that we have found. You will then have the option to have these fixed on site at Jerba. If your van is still within it's warranty period any additional costs will be covered by your warranty.

Should I remove my belonging from my van before I arrive?

In order for us to quickly and efficiently perform our checks on your van we would recommend leaving any large items at home. We do have boxes for your kit here at Jerba if you need us to store your things while we perform our test.
