    Hello All.

    I've been knocking around for a little while now and took the plunge to register and join in.

    We are just about to buy this (see attached). There is no brochure or anything with it and all I know is its a Pegaso 58. I dont even know what make it is!

    Can someone point me in the right direction as I would like to get the manuals. I know that the heater, cooker hob etc can be downloaded from this site but at least I will have the model numbers. I have seen a couple of makes used with Pegaso (CI is one I remember).

    Its going for a full habitation service tomorrow so I know everything works ok - hopefully!:Smile:

    Anyway - any help would be appreciated. I am really looking forward to getting it and using this website to find some good places (Isle of Man is top of the list so far) and probably some good advice.

    Thanks

    Steve:BigGrin:

    Funny Foreign Motorhomes

    Hi Steve,

    I had a similar problem with mine, which seems to be a Spanish made model. There seems to be one other one in the country and a Moncayo dealer in Holland...

    Doing a quick Google search on "Pegaso 58"+motorhome gave the results below. There were additional dealers with your type of MH to sell. At least you get to see pictures of others and can gauge the differences. I was lucky as I acquired a good selection of manuals, although some didn’t relate to the MH. Good luck with your search.

    Happy Travels,
    Richard W.

    Thanks Richard W - So its a Granduca. Thats the other make that popped up!

    Do you think not having the stickers on the cab is something to worry about (repairs wise - I'm not bothered what it looks like). I'm thinking of getting a mechanic to look over it so maybe that would be a good idea.

    Thanks for all the welcomes too!:thumb:

    A few more ideas

    Hi Steve,

    I think the only problem you may have is with any specialist mouldings. When I bought mine there was a hole in the hand basin in the toilet / shower room. The dealer tried to get a replacement moulding, but to no avail. I settled for a repair to the basin. My understanding is that any competent caravan / motorhome repair establishment can deal with bodywork and habitation issues.

    I’d definitely get a mechanic to look over the vehicle side of it as well as getting a habitation check done. From my limited understanding, the base vehicles are all very similar, with some ‘badge engineering’ involved. The one topic that comes up regularly is servicing and cam belts.

    I’m new to motorhoming, but have so far managed to get by with reading the Haines Manuals and digging around on the Internet. Using the ‘Search’ function on this forum may bring up some useful stuff, particularly about the base vehicle and anything to look out for. On this forum there are some very well informed people who are most generous with their help.

    Happy Travels,
    Richard W.

    Thanks - yes, a mechanical check will be a good idea. I'll get that done too.
