    We've finally, after much umming and aaahing, bought our first motorhome.

    Our 1989 2.0 Petrol Fiat Ducato Highwayman has been beautifully kept and recently repaired and we are looking forward to a summer of trips with our very excited children.

    A couple of things we do need help with:

    A friend looking around our new purchase managed to snap the drivers side interior door handle (don't ask me how). Apart from trying spare parts searches online does anyone know of specialists who may be able to help me replace it?

    And does anyone know of where we can get a cheap bunk ladder?

    Looking forard to being a member of this site and to many happy weekends away.

    Bob

    Hi and welcome to the site, enjoy the van. a breakers yard is the best place for a replacement handle no idea on the bunk ladder, I'd just make one.
