can anyone give some advice on servicing a motorhome, we only do very low mileage i change the oil and filter at the start of every spring but when should you get a main service carried out obviously we dont go on mileage so what sort of time scale would other people use.
any advice would be appreciated.

Take our Fiat Ducato to Fiat main dealership as I am not a DIY guy! They recognise low mileages being done on Motorhomes and do a low mileage service at a reasonable cost. Stil not as cheap as doing it yourself!

One year
Annual at least, irrespective of mileage covered. We have a service/ full mechanical check at MOT time. Low mileage brings it's own problems such as brakes seizing, moisture and corrosion in bearings ect.
If things are checked at MOT time it saves having the 'van in the garage twice.

5 years but still learning
ours twice a year even on low mileage. but as always your own choice

Once for service and check , once for MOT and check. 6 moths apart

A service is not just a simple oil and filter check, there is greasing, fluid level checks, along with other bits and pieces . So for me the cost is worth the piece of mind that the checks have been completed and looked over for other problems that may be developing
As our MoHo is a little older I do use a good local independent MoHo mechanic, worth their weight when you find them

Ours is low mileage and was just checking the book and the main concern for us would be that the timing belt has to be changed every 5 years regardless of mileage.
