    Over the holiday we took advantage of the offer on Outdoor Bits and ordered the hand brake handle extension for our Fiat based motorhome, and I must say that it was well worth the money and does the job it is claimed to do.

    That's good to know as I was wondering about buying one of these for my 1991 Fiat Ducato. Thanks!:Smile:

    Do you have a link?

    I just had all the brakes overhauled on all 6 wheels of our Burstner, new pads on each wheel and the handbrake is still crap!

    An extender might make the handbrake easier to reach but it won't stop it being crap! I use a truck garage where they actually understand how to adjust the handbrake on a tag axle. Made a big difference to the two tags I've owned. :Smile:
