    Could anybody advise on who could be put forward to a court in selecting a single joint inspection
    reporting back to a court on a faulty motorhome,they will need to be qualified and experienced
    in the type of work because they will be viewed as a expert witness and may be cross examine
    by claimant,defendant and judge.
    I will not be surprised if the charge willk be between £1000 and £2000 and up to £1000 per day in
    court.There is a court case number the dealer has engaged solicitor so will be on the hockey
    poss 3 months cheers

    He will not be viewed as an expert he will have to be an expert
    you should try and engage someone from a trade certifying or training body connected to motorhome/caravaning trade/builders association
    A personal friend of mine is a court recognised expert witness in the gas and plumbing sector, he is a past chairman of the master plumbers, fellow of charted plumbers and heating engineering council and worshipfull plumbers!!! What a title!!
    You need a simular type chap such as a consulting engineer these perhaps HERE They list Motor Homes as an area of expertise

    Having spoken to many repairers and experts,one being dekra expert which offer engineer reports i respect the
    top engineer who stated we are not that sort of expert which can dig deep into heavy faults and legals what
    you require the reallity is there are not many mustard experts what have the experience and legal knowledge of this
    so folks any one got any ideas.
    Distributors of the brand have said off the record not able to help mate its the family thats how it rolls me not
    surprised and respect the honesty.

    NCC approved workshop scheme have lots of independent workshops and there must be someone amongst them. If you are a member of the Caravan Club or Camping & Caravanning Club they might be able to suggest an independent expert. Can't believe that you are the first looking for such an expert. Why not ask Eddie at VanBitz as he doesn't owe any allegiance to any motorhome brand as he is not a franchised dealer.
