Imported RV’s are required to have an Australian gas compliance certificate before being registered for use, some imports require full removal of gas appliances and gas fitting lines, make sure you do your homework before purchasing an imported RV. If you have an imported RV, bring it to us for a 12 Point Safety Check so we can inspect and inform you of all plumbing and electrical requirements for compliance.
We can also organize Engineers Certificates for your motorhome, which is required prior to registering your motorhome. The engineer will require the Gas Compliance Certificate, Certificate of Electrical Safety and a weigh bridge certificate stating the weight on each axle. The engineer will inspect the fit out, and may require information regarding some of the installation details.
