Hi Overdrive. Until a few months ago, we owned a 1998 Duetto which is identical to yours apart from minor revisons.
Yours looks in good condition in the photos. It also suffered the same affliction that most diesel Duettos do - namely the bit of trim below the fuel filler has fell off. Luckily I found ours on the drive after it had been washed one time. It seems that the fuel must wash the glue away after years of filling up.
The blind on the door is correct. If you look there is not really enough room to fit the top roller bit due to the way the door curves in. To keep the morning light out, we made a bit of silver blind to put behind the fly screen before bedtime, easy and cheap to do. Also make sure the metal hoops on the door that the top of the flyscreen hooks on to are not gouging out the plastic panel when the door is opening, as it leaves horrible marks.
As Peejay said : the toilet cassette indicator barely worked on ours too. If it was totally full, ie up to the seal, then the indicator would move about 1/8th of an inch. We adopt the practice of looking into the toilet, and if it is more than half full, go and empty it when possible.
Also as Peejay says, the roof-light must have been changed, as on ours they were both the same. Oddly though the bathroom one was reversed. It matters not one jot really.
We did 20,000 miles and 100 nights+ in two years in our van, and were planning to keep it forever, but got the chance financially to swap to a new one. I am not sure if it was really the correct decision.
If you have any questions, please fire away, I would be more than happy to help.
