    I am thinking of buying in Germany when we get to the point of being able to do so.
    So I have been looking at links kindly given by experienced members.
    However, I notice that the descriptions refer to the Fiat Ducato part with various different numbers. Such as: 81KW (110PS) 93KW (126PS) 96KW (131PS) 109KW (148PS) 111KW (150PS)
    They are all, as far as I can see, 2.3 Multijet.
    Do these numbers refer to the power of the engine?
    If so what do you think is best for a 3.5t type of motorhome?

    Yes they are the engine power outputs ,personally I would go for more power rather than less , you can always back of the accelerator, but hard to add more power to the engine after you have bought it. Although most engines ecu's can be re mapped for more power .

    PS = Pferdestärke - German for horsepower, equal to metric horsepower and sometimes referred to as 'continental horsepower

    So 110PS = 110 Horsepower
