Even the non-technically minded can test the overall condition of the mechanical parts of the motorhome. Don't be embarrassed to poke around.

Finally, and totally unscientifically, remember the "Dog and its Owner" rule. Just as bad dogs and bad owners tend to go together, so do bad sellers and bad motorhomes. If you don't trust the seller, don't buy the motorhome.
Do consider having the motorhome professionally examined before you buy, either through a motoring association, private company or garage. They will examine the motorhome and be able to give you more safety with your transaction.
Clocking does still occur unfortunately. Clocking usually involves removing the whole assembly from the dash and changing the milometer i.e. winding the clock back. Check that the digits align and examine the screws, and if you are in doubt, walk away.
