    Quite fancy these but can't see much difference in the spec. Does any one have one of these ? Let me know what you think of it.
    Thanks

    I think the only difference is 10 is on a Transit base and the 510 is on a Fiat

    I have a feeling the "Best of"s are on the Ford base.

    Could be..... the best of 4, best of 6 and best of 10 were Ford based. Still one or two around at the dealers.

    We are buying a best of 510, and looked at both specs. Can't see much difference apart from upholstery and choosing optional fixtures. I think the best of 510 is sold as is and the 510 is made to order. Both on Fiat as they have run out of the ford. The dealer we are buying it from said the best of 10 was so popular they carried on with the best of on the fiat and added a 5 to it :) also the sink in the bathroom is nicer than the 10. One big difference is the paint work. The best of 510 is all white with white bumper. The 510 is silver graphics. And the air conditioning is included in the best of range.

    Wow that is great. :BigGrin: Our dealers didn't have a 510 only the best of to look at. I like the paint work of the 510 over the best of, but for us to order one it would have been a few thousand more. Congrats on yours, we pick ours in on the 10th May so only 3 weeks for us to :BigGrin:

    We picked up our best of 10 transit base a month or so age.Ordered it at the nec it was just about the last one left so far very pleased and no faults. Wanted a ford again as our last one was so reliable .Does anyone know how the bed controls work I tried to look through the pack cant find out the only problem is trying to get our mattress topper to fit in when the bed goes up. Just ordered a 11 kg gasit cylinder came today going to fit this weekend hope it fits the manual says 11kg should fit but our dealer says its tight!.I think all the best of 10/510 range look good

    Please let us know as we pick up our Welcome WS on the 5th and want to fit a Gasit but are not sure if it will fit.

    We have an 11kg Gaslow cylinder fitted by Vanbitz in our Chausson (Best Of 04) but it was a tight fit & we had to have the filler point behind the door as nowhere else suitable - almost had to go down to 6kg.

    Fitted the gas-it 11kg yesterday loads of room will try and post a photo. The connections take a bit of thinking about to fit in without the hoses being bent too much I spent 45 minutes thinking/experimenting and 15 fitting!. Found a local gas station 5 minutes away and a nice slovakian bloke filling his car helped me with the first fill. Put in 20 litres (10 kg approx) and was a bit alarmed by the gas escaping from the refill hose afterwards. I suppose its normal. The are no instructions from gas-it they do supply a leak detecter spray but the products seem good phone service helpfull when placing an order, website poor, could do with organising some fitting instructions and faq,s. Cost just under £175 including 11kg cyl in locker fitting kit pigtail adapter and in line bent gas filter o get a 5% discount if you say you are on the wildgas forum :Wink::Wink:

    Putting enquiry here re a lot of Chausson 510 chat going on although perhaps not recent I know,
    I've got a Fiat a best of 510 , have any of you 510 owners replaced the (no good to me Grill thing) and fitted a microwave in its place if so how successful was the mod & where did you pick up the 240v supply from re my 510 has only got 2 x 240 sockets and they are badly positioned for me to take feeds from anyway

    We had the useless grill taken out of our WS and a 240 socket put in. The space is now filled with a cheap microwave/grill from Lidl. The dealer fitted the 240 socket when they took out the grill.

    We have just had this done at our dealership. The grill came out, they tapped of the gas, put a new supply in and fitted a microwave. They did a really good job with the carpentry around it. Very pleased, not cheap but it did involve a few people. It looks like it was meant to be there. Keeping the grill safe in case we sell and the new owners want it. :)

    We have three sockets two in kitchen and one at the end of e short sofa near the drivers seat.

    I was told by a dealer putting too much bedding on the bed causes the mechanisim to jam and a reboot is necessary. But I have no experience to give on this.
