A lot of people in the world are huge fans of staying out in a caravan during a vacation and traveling all over the world in such ways. In fact, in the past few years it was clear to see a rise of people who have started to vacation using caravans and trailers instead of their own cars and vans. While this is a good thing in many ways what most people do not understand properly is that they need a lot of legalizing and a lot of certifications in order to make sure they are safe and legal while using these kind of mobile homes. Most mobile homes are going to have permanent gas connections and permanent water and plumbing systems as well. They are also going to have a lot of different equipment inside as well. This means that safety is of utmost importance. Getting these certifications are of great help as well. If you do not have any idea of what certificates to get for your own caravan, this guide will help you.
Certificates for gas
A mobile gas certificate is one of the first things that you must get for your caravan and it is illegal if you do not get this certification, especially knowing you have a permanent gas source in the caravan. In order to give you this certificate a gas safety check is going to be done in your caravan and once everything is checked and settled then you will be handed your rightful certification which indicates everything is safe and not risky.
Certification of safety
This can come under a gas compliance certificate but is usually given for the safety of the type of caravan you are driving. This certification is only needed if your vehicle is over seven hundred and fifty kilo grams in weight. This is also mostly needed when you are selling your vehicle to another person or if you are transferring names to a new individual instead. The certificate is pretty easy to get and under Australian law, it is illegal to not have it with you at times you should need it. It helps you out with selling and even purchasing vehicles.
Certificate of compliance
This is also a bit similar to the certificate of gas but instead of checking gas safety they check everything to with your plumbing systems. A certified plumber has the authority to check if your plumbing standards meet proper standards and if so, the certificate is given to you with no worry.
