    Anyone know if the current Exsis i range have remote central locking for the driver and habitation door ( ie operated from the Fiat keyfob)?

    Doubt it. Being an A class it won't have a Fiat door at all. I have just bought a new Hymer B class and that does not have any central locking at all. All by key.

    Can't see it listed in the Options list I have for UK. Just the security locks.

    Must say that I was surprised to hear that my new Hymer did not have central locking, given that I have it for cab and habitation doors on my 2008 Adria.

    The van we're getting has the security locks - I assume they are just Yale type addons.
    It's going to feel a step back after having the convenience of central locking on our current Vantage panel van conversion:-(

    @Judgemental - it's an i578 experience, with the essential 16 inch wheels (alloy) ,GRP roof, but standard black mirrors (though halfords can provide the spraycan to upgrade them to white....)

    No central locking on Exsis I or B Class, waste of time if you have security locks. Not really a hardship as you nearly always only use on door.

    Yes I think that is what will happen with us - the passenger's side door will just be left locked and bolted. That is what swayed us in the end. But still a bit of a pain to have to press a remote to switch off alarm, then use two different keys to open the door (we have the security locks), when all we do at the moment is one press on the remote which unlocks and switched off the alarm. Not looking forward to doing it on a wet and windy night after I have had too much to drink

    Thanks everyone.

    @peterc10 - we reached the same conclusions. Still, a bit of a surprise and hopefully the only one we have on our new van:)

    Should really have realised as we met someone who added security locks after being burgled by having the hab door window smashed and the door opened via the internal handle (so obviously no deadlock function).

    The deadlocks on mine are not key operated from the inside, just the outside. Mind you mine is a 2015 model and the deadlocks were only £140 each, whereas the ones on the 2016 models are £220. So maybe yours will be different.

    We had an Adria coachbuilt, full central locking. Now we have A class Frankia, 2 doors, with no central locking, still think it is silly and thought it would be a pain, but in reality it is fine as we always use the hab door, seems natural now.

    @peterc10 Yep, they only had STD locks originally. Not bothered about a key inside but expect using key outside to disable the internal handle (unlike the std lock).
    However I suspect the only difference between your locks and mine is £80:)

    @Neilfg I'm sure we'll get used to it too. Looking on the bright side it's one less thing to go wrong......

    Hymer still fit the same Abus locks as far as I'm awear.
    Only ever use the drivers door when filling up with fuel.

    Thanks Lenny. We are RHD so no driver's door! Are they the Abus ones without the key lock on the inside? And do they disable the inside handle when you lock from the outside?

    They are just a bolt that slides across only a knob on the inside, look impressive on the outside so worth it as a deterant.

    Thanks. But can the Knob inside still be used if it has been locked from the outside please?

    Yes, in reality just a fancy bolt.
    Like I said more of a deterant, looks impressive from the outside.
    When I get home tomorrow I'll post some photos. Freezing my balls off at the monument, got a couple of days contract work in Sunderland, oh to be back in the warm south.:)

    Lenny, thanks but no need for photos. I have already seen it on the van - just did not test it to see how it worked!
