[VIDEO] How to damp test a caravan

One of the most important things you should be looking out for when you view a second hand caravan that you are considering buying is damp. To give you a better understanding of what to look for I put this video together showing you exactly how to perform a damp test on a caravan.

To purchase a damp meter at Amazon visit how2caravan.com/dampmeter - at the time of recording this video the damp meter was about £25, as I mentioned in the video, this is a solid investment if it could save you from buying thousands of pounds worth of trouble.

The damp scale again for you reference:

  • 0% -15% = normal, no cause for concern
  • 15% – 20% = higher than average, keep an eye on it – could be due to atmospheric conditions (maybe investigate further)
  • 20%+ = present damp issue – requires specialist examination

This is my first video post, I hope you found it informative (and that you managed to ignore my “ummms” and “ahhs”). I would love to get your feedback on the video. Maybe you have some question about performing a damp test – leave your questions and comments in the comment box below.
