    Possibly a daft question, but how can I tell what kind of base chassis my Transit based Hobby (T600 Siesta exclusive) has?

    I was looking at under-floor spare wheel holders on eBay that *aren't* suitable for an Alko chassis. Sod's law being what it is, this is bound to be the one I have. ;-). I can't see any obvious ID plates (but I wouldn't really know where to look). I took a rather bad picture as it's raining at the moment and was a hurry. Can anyone tell from this?

    Next question concerns whether it is possible to get a "drop in" wheel well to fit into the floor of the rear locker so that the spare could be secure from light fingers. I can seem to locate a kit for this purpose.

    Can anyone advise on my chassis? Looking at a Peugeot spare wheel carrier and wondering if it can be made to fit.

    Just had a further grovel under the van and realised there is some sort of spare wheel hanger there. (See pic). Not clear how you would hang a wheel on this though.

    I finally managed to view your chassis picture and NO you don't have an Alko

    Seems logical. :Laughing: Quite a few similar but different carriers on eBay but as I'm going to the Ford dealer on Tuesday to get the radio sorted I'll just ask them.
