When (finally!) ordering my campervan, the configurator would not accept me ticking the mudguards option box due to them not being compatible with the 3.5t Maxi chassis. Does anyone knows the reason why?

Me neither, brand new Carthago Malibu on Ducato maxi chassis and no mudguards option 🤷‍♂️
Ps the holes are there to attach them, but....🤔

DOH!!! I've just done what I hate others do :madder:. In the title please read Ducato because we know a Ducati has only two wheels. Mind you i and o are next to each other on the keyboard!
I'm bumping the question as I'm hoping our specialist Simon-Alan Kerr will have the answer.

It might have something to do with the plastic wheel arch extensions that are fitted to the Maxi variants. There’s no problem fitting mud flaps to vans without extensions, I’ve done it.

On my Maxi chassis we have lorry mudflaps, they are square (ish) and screwed to the body not the wheelarch, they work very well and have kept our (62 plate) Hymer very clean underneath.

There is no reason you shouldn't be able to order them, especially if its for a panel van and not a coach built.
Worst case scenario, order them through a Fiat dealer and they should be able to sort for you.

Do you mean wheel arch liners or mud flaps🤔 as I would consider mudguards like you put on a bike🤔

Interesting point. It could indeed be because of that but it you chose the option of painted front bumper you lose the plastic wheel arch extensions.

Yes, as far as I know mudflaps can only be fitted to the front on a Ducato if it does not have those plastic edging parts. I’ve never looked at one so I don’t know what they actually are, both mine have been metal arches
