The Fiat Ducato is a popular panel van and good for camper van conversions. The Ducato chassis has long been used by motorhome builders.

The Fiat Ducato is the same van as the Citroen Jumper and the Peugeot Expert, with all three vans being made in factories in Italy and Brazil.

Ducato's are reliable and well made. Parts are easily available and well priced.

Fiat Ducato camper vans

The Fiat Ducato is popular base vehicle for camper van conversions. Ambulance versions of the Ducato are available, and a good choice for a camper van conversion.

Fiat Ducato Motorhomes

The Fiat Ducato chassis is one of the best, and is used in a very high percentage of motorhomes.

Third Generation (2006 - present)

Goods and passenger versions are still available. Carrying capacity was increased from previous models.

In 2003 the range was restyled. The 2.5L diesel engine was dropped.

    Dear Brian

    Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding a Service and Repair Manual for your vehicle. Unfortunately, we do not produce a Manual for this particular model and have no plans to do so within the foreseeable future as we tend not to cover commercial vehicles.
    Unfortunately as most commercial vehicles are owned by companies there is not a high enough demand for us to produce a Haynes manual.

    However, all customer requests are recorded and used in the decision making process of future Manual publications/updates.
    You could try contacting your local dealer to see if he can be of assistance.

    Subject: Fiat Ducato- manual request
    Dear Haynes Manual team. Please please raise the priority of a manual being produced for the Fiat Ducato. Mine is a 1996 camper van. Although there's a tendency these days for lots of cars to be dumped after 15yrs old, I know for a fact people will want to keep Fiat ducato vans on the road for many years more than that. Just check out the sheer number of camper vans based on the Ducato in "MMM motor caravan" magazine!

    Many thanks

    Kind regards

    The manual for this model has been short-listed for consideration [ISBN 0000025593]

    I see that Auto Books Direct do a range of Russek manuals. The pricing seems good and it looks like UK P&P is included up front!
    Has anybody else used Auto Books Direct?
