Fiat Ducato gearbox/clutch problems
I am considering purchasing a new motorhome of 6.5 to 7 metres and recently hired a Swift Bolero on a Fiat manual gearbox. I reversed it up my driveway, which is quite steep but the clutch started smelling after a few seconds. I didn't manage to get to the top as I was worried I might ruin it. I have read various reports and the items on your forum of problems with the manual gearbox. I would prefer an automatic (as my cars are autos) and does anyone know whether the Fiat auto is good at reversing up slopes or is the Mercedes any better?
