Too many people chasing poorly constructed campers (usually made in UK) buy a 'bargain' only to find they've inherited a rotten camper.

Usually used to test firewood stacked outside they will give you and seller an instant result by pushing the probes lightly into both internal and external wooden structure,

as an example you may well find a moisture reading of some sort in bed area as a result of respiration, and again beside hob and where a kettle boils condensation,
anywhere else like washroom or possibly water filler point is cause for concern/discount

I had nothing on scale in sleeping area as camper not been used since last Summer otherwise will likely have seen same readings as a result us breathing in it overnight :)

really, any reading over 1-2% cause for further enquiry and investigation, beyond that just look elesewhere,
