Ensure a Safe and Compliant Journey with Roadworthy and Gas Certificates. Hit the Road with Confidence

A gas certificate is required if the caravan has gas fittings such as a fridge, cooktop or hot water system. This certificate ensures that the gas systems in the caravan are safe and compliant with relevant regulations. For further information visit their site here.

It’s crucial to obtain these certificates when necessary to ensure the safety of your caravan and comply with the law. Failure to do so may result in legal consequences or difficulties with registration and selling of the caravan.

Always check with the relevant authorities or a qualified inspector for the most up-to-date information and requirements, as regulations can change over time. Contact us or visit our shop if you need an expert opinion on Lithium battery upgrades.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Roadworthy Certificate (RWC), also known as a Safety Certificate, is a document that certifies that a vehicle, including caravans, meets the minimum safety standards required for road use in Queensland.

  •   You need a RWC in the following situations:
  •   When purchasing an unregistered caravan.
  •    When you’re moving to another state.
  •    When your caravan’s registration has expired for over 3 months.
  •    When you’re selling your caravan.

A Gas Certificate is required if your caravan has gas fittings to ensure that the gas systems in the caravan are safe and comply with relevant safety regulations.

– The validity of an RWC depends on whether you are buying or selling the caravan:
– Private Sale: Valid for two months or 2000 kilometres, whichever comes first.
– Dealer Sale: Valid for three months and 1000 kilometres, whichever comes first.

No, you cannot legally sell your caravan in Queensland without a valid Roadworthy Certificate, unless you are selling it to a licensed dealer. The certificate ensures the safety of the vehicle for the new owner.

To obtain these certificates, you should contact a licensed inspector or mechanic who can assess your caravan’s condition and issue the necessary certificates if it meets the safety and gas system standards. We do both of these certificates at AllBrand Caravan Services.

If your caravan fails the inspection, you will need to address the identified issues and have it re-inspected until it meets the safety standards and requirements.

No, the certificate requirements apply to all caravans, regardless of their age. All caravans must meet safety and gas system standards to be legally registered and operated on the roads in Queensland.

No, these certificates are specific to the condition of the caravan at the time of inspection and are not transferable. The new owner will need to obtain their own certificates.

You can find detailed information on these requirements on the official website of the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads or by contacting them directly for the most up-to-date information.

Remember that it’s essential to follow these requirements to ensure the safety of your caravan and comply with the relevant laws in Queensland.

Always seek guidance from qualified inspectors and relevant authorities to address any specific questions or concerns you may have regarding your caravan’s certification.
