Starquest EL chassis type

hi eveyrone I'm new to this forum malarky( 1st post since I joined in 2014) so forgive me if I get it wrong. I need to change the rear shock absorbers on my Starquest EL the problem I have whilst trying to source them online is they all seem to refer to the chassis type "platform etc". Can someone please tell me what type I have.
Regards Bob

This maybe in your V5, but should also be on the slam panel data label, but either way they should (if they have a clue) be able to get it from your Reg No or VIN.

Post a pic and we'll help if you get stuck.

Sorry, should have said, it's the panel your bonnet slams onto.

The chassis type question refers to the base vehicle used by the converter.
The majority of coachbuilt converters utilise the "platform" option, which refers to a chassis cab delivered from Fiat (or Ford and others) which is effectively just the cab portion of a van with the bare chassis rails sticking out of the back, "A" class will usually be built on a bare chassis i.e. no metalwork around the cab area. P.V.C's are built from the standard full bodied van.
