    As your engine is Iveco you could also use an Iveco commercial Garage.

    If you cannot find a company qualified to do both vehicle and habitation service I would have the vehicle serviced by a Fiat agent and the habitation service done by a Motorhome specialist..

    I use a truck dealer who specialises in Iveco's, as cammercial specialists they know what they are doing and are most helpfull.

    There are a number of Iveco Truck dealers who service local Fiat ambulance fleets, they are very knowledgeable and skilled. Ask around your area for the nearest to you. You can always get the habitation done anywhere.
