So our IH and us are off travelling for about 9 months covering Canada and the US.

We are not the first IH to do this but for us it will be a great experience.

Minor details still to sort.

Biggest headache are the dashboard fixings for the reversing camera and Dashcam. Why can’t fiat make a flat dashboard???

Cannot use the windscreen due to the nighttime blinds.

More about our travels later.

I also didn't like the blinds requiring the removal of satnav/dashcam so I just bolted the satnav sucker section to the top of the flip up document holder(Later Ducatos).
Check carefully for screw position(oops) before drilling as the holder release mechanism is contained within.
Benefits are: The sucker no longer drops off whilst driving due to sun heat and it is also a good position for joint navigation(are we there yet) in the centre of the dash.

Hi from another IH owner. Please keep on posting and let us all know how you get on.
We use a bean bag thingy for the Sat Nav. Can sit it within navigators hand reach for on the go adjustments !
The dash cam, we have stuck that to a piece of Perspex attached at one end under the Ducato clip. However find that the images are not as steady as there is engine vibration through the dashboard. Gone back to sticking it on windscreen and removing at night.
Have a great time.
