The gearbox does have a small issue with gears 1 and 2 which suffer from the usual Fiat Ducato problem of slight "crunching" if the revs are too high, but with correct driving and steady gear changing, this is minimised.
This does not affect the overall running of the van and has been like it since we have had it, and I have been advised it is still perfectly serviceable to drive.
Gears 3 ,4 and 5 are fully operational, as is reverse, and she will happily cruise at 60mph, with 70mph being fully possible on motorways.

Vehicle is registered on the V5 as "Motor Caravan", and we are the 5th owners.
Full registration is X819 WNU and all the MOT history can be viewed online from the Government MOT check.
I am the full legal owner, and the vehicle is registered to myself.
Taxation class is £341 per year (£28.43 per month)
The vehicle is free of finance or loan, and I own it in full as it is fully paid for.
Insurance for us is currently £384 per year for Fully Comprehensive cover with UK breakdown and recovery facility plus legal cover and personal accident cover, and 3 named adult drivers.

Vehicle can be driven without a C1 category driving licence as under 3500kg.

I have tried to give as much information as possible and with sincere honesty to its condition. It is after all 23 years young and has been used, but not abused, and
we are only selling because our personal circumstances have changed and
we are looking at buying (or exchanging for?) a PVC or "Pop-Top" van, which will still allow my wife and I to get away for days out or an occasional overnight camping with our family but will also become my daily vehicle, having got rid of my car which will reduce our vehicle costs from 3 to 2.

No obligation viewing recommended.

Vehicle is based in North Nottinghamshire and is sold as seen.

Looking for a price around £11500.00 OVNO.

Vehicle will come with internal thermal front windscreen and side cab window blinds, and all windows have aftermarket ‘Lock M out’ window locks fitted.
Clutch Claw security device is also included as are 2 x 6kg full propane gas bottles and regulator.
Further details available by request via PM

Thanks for taking the time to look.

If its not the vehicle for you, but you think it might suit someone you know who is looking for a vehicle and may not be a Motorhome Fun member, I would be grateful if you could pass the info on.
Any inspection and test drive welcome.



PS: Having taken advice from various sales areas regarding the van, my initial advertised pricing of £15000 was wildly optimistic and out of touch with reality, hence the price reduction to £11500 OVNO, which I am advised is more realistic and in keeping with true market pricing, and not fantasy.
Thank You.
