Cranham is an NCC-approved workshop and service centre for caravans and motorhomes.
Caravan & Motorhome Servicing
Cranham Leisure is an approved service centre for caravans and motorhomes in Essex and East London. We provide caravan and motorhome servicing for Auto-Trail, Bürstner, Hymer, and Roller Team. We’re also proud to be a Bailey-approved service centre, so we can carry out regular servicing on models from this brand. When you book an annual service with Cranham Leisure you can have complete confidence that your vehicle is being taken good care of.
We are an AWS workshop, part of the Approved Workshop Scheme (AWS). By booking an AWS workshop, you can go away on holiday knowing that your leisure vehicle has been thoroughly serviced by an expert technician. Our technicians are highly qualified and use up-to-date procedures and modern testing equipment.
Caravan & Motorhome Repairs
With all of the modern technology used in new motorhomes, it’s more crucial than ever to have a standard service and routine habitation check to ensure everything is in working order. At Cranham Leisure, we carry out a comprehensive service and habitation check to Approved Workshop standards – with all of our technicians fully trained to those latest standards.
We can repair any make and model of tourer and are an approved repairer for Bailey caravans. Our workshops are Gas Safe registered, and we have achieved the standards necessary to be considered an Approved Workshop – endorsed by the three major caravanning bodies (The National Caravan Council (NCC), The Caravan and Motorhome Club and The Camping and Caravanning Club). As an NCC-approved service centre, you can be confident that your vehicle is in safe hands when it is with us.
Caravan Damp Check
As part of our habitation service, we check for water ingress around doors, windows and floors, providing percentage readings so you can see how your caravan is performing year after year. We use a Protimeter Moisture Meter (although cheaper options can be found, this is what the NCC recommends).
We also supply and fit a range of accessories for caravans, such as Fiamma awnings, solar panels, bike racks and caravan motor movers. Our Fiamma awnings provide a comfortable and shaded outdoor space, while solar panels can provide a sustainable source of energy for your caravan’s electrical system. Our caravan motor movers can also make travelling much easier. With our motorhome services and accessories, we aim to make ownership a hassle-free experience.

Frequently Asked Questions
- How often should a motorhome be serviced?
In order to maintain manufacturer warranties, it’s recommended that you have your motorhome serviced annually to ensure it is safe. An NCC-approved service will provide you with peace of mind as it ensures that any potential issues with your vehicle are identified and addressed in a timely manner.
- What does a motorhome service include?
A standard caravan and motorhome service can include:
- A damp check with a full report.
- A gas tightness check, ensuring that drop vents are clear and flame failure devices (FFDs) are working.
- Electrical system checks, including internal lights, running lights and RCD testing.
- Removal of brake drums for inspection and cleaning (replacement of one shot nuts at cost is not included).
- What is a habitation check?
A habitation check is a type of inspection performed on a motorhome or caravan. It is designed to identify issues that may exist within the living space, to ensure that everything is working before it is used for extended periods of time. When conducting a habitation service, technicians will check the gas and electrical systems as well as the water supply, heating and ventilation. They may also check some appliances in the kitchen, and toilet and shower facilities.
