Hello

We have an Ace Napoli, not sure what the difference is. Ours is 2.3 2004 with about 14K mileage on it, we have had it 4 years had no problems, except with fridge but that could happen with any fridge I suppose. Ours has an L shaped lounge at the back and over cab bed which we don't use except for storage.

The Ace model you have has two sister models.

The Swift Sundance range and the Bessacarr E400 Range are the same. There are plenty of these on the road the, Sundance being the most popular.

Although the model you have has now been dropped from the range and the Sundance and E400's have been changed a fair bit recently.


I would say your van will have many common parts with other Motorhomes so if you have any problems you should easily be able to get and answere on here.

Morning Pat & Jackie
Looks like you've got a model up in the same range as ours. We have a 2 berth Ace Capri, basically the same with rear bathroom / kitchen but two benches & no overcab.

We find it's perfect for what we want, constructed reasonably well, & we didn't pay silly money for it.

We've had it just two years & have had no problems really, other than I've just discovered a couple of cracks in the shower wall moulding (yours may not have the same shower arrangement with the "swing wall" as it's a slightly older van).

As has been said the fittings will be similar to many other vans so spares shouldn't be a problem over & above the usual difficulties people sometimes have, so relax, open a bottle of wine & enjoy

I maybe should have waited till I retired, but thought I would just go for it !!
Will try to relax despite rising fuel prices !

Wonder what effect rising fuel costs will have on motorhomes ?

Sorry trying to relax
