When purchasing a used campervan or mobile home, attention should be paid to the type of particle emissions sticker the campervan has and whether this allows travel through all cities. It is also important to ensure that the vehicle substructure is sound and no water leaks can be seen. In addition, all equipment and machinery should work without problems, while the condition of the furniture will provide a general impression of the condition of the campervan or mobile home. Check carefully and parts that have been replaced, in case larger problems have had only cosmetic attention.
The underlying vehicle should, of course, be scrutinised carefully – motor, transmission, axles and electrics. Check first any inspection reports, certificates and of course the registration certificate and ownership papers. Check the underneath of the vehicle for rust or traces of oil leaks. Windows, doors, paint, body work and lights should also be inspected for condition and any possible damage. Examine the tyres and make sure you take the vehicle for a test drive. Unidentifiable sounds could indicate defects and possible repairs.
