    Internally, check that everything works - the boiler fires up, the fridge works on gas and the 12 volt electrics work. Check that the taps and shower work and don't leak.

    If its a Hymer, check the horn works. This is a common problem.

    Look for signs of water ingress.

    we have a similar one - a B564.
    Had it 2 years. We own our own garage business so changed the cambelt & serviced it ourselves. After 1 year, 2 days before we were due to go to France the water pump started leaking, not heavily but enought to need replacing. My husband did it himself & what a job, took him anout 15 hrs!!
    Apart from this we've had no other problems & it's been a good runner.
    Check the radiator hose is not perished due to age - they are very hard to come by as not made anymore.
