The 6 month check is for water ingress (damp check) and as you say, most others are 12 months.
I bought my Rimor from Maxwell Motors in Kelso and have to travel down every 6 months from NE Scotland (225+ miles) which I usually try and combine with a trip further South.
I contacted Rimor in Italy to seek permission for this to be done at a motorhome dealers in Elgin - 15 miles away - but was told I could only use my supplying dealer or a authorised Rimor Dealer as they had the special tools (damp meter) and the precise map of where to check.
At no time during the damp checks were what could be referred to as habitation checks carried out. This would be all the gas appliances, flues, water system etc.
