    I'm pretty sure it's different, Lou. We needed a new one a couple of years ago and the only supplier was Al-Ko themselves. Try contacting their UK place at Leamington Spa - they took some persuading to supply directly to the garage that was doing the repair work on our motorhome, but came through eventually. Wasn't cheap though......:Sad:

    if it needs to be changed why not remove it and take it to your local Pug dealer.....tell them the base vehicle only (they will probably ask for the reg number to get full details) and see what they come up with.

    that way you know for sure but I'm sure its different as Alko chassis are generally longer than standard, so the axle may be further back
