    Hi.. Strangely enough I'm looking to do exactly the same on my chausson x250 maxi. I'm going to visit a company called Flowtech not too far from me as it seems they can make one up easily.

    Thanks sdc77, looks like I will have to get one made up too, unless I extend the exhaust and fit a shorter tailpipe which are readily available, but prefer to keep to existing size. will have a look at flowtech.

    We had a complete stainless system made for our 5 yr old Transit based Chausson.

    I think Chausson use the least corrosion-resistant steel known to man for their exhaust extensions!

    I made a new one from commercial exhaust bends for my oddessee 92 bought from local lorry suppliers special shape but made from 3 bends off the shelf sizes. It is my step which caused the problem of fit.

    I have done it now and I have brought the pipe outlet to the rear of the step so the fumes are behind it when driving.
    Seems alright but MOT tomorrow morning.
