Looks good to me Allan.
Guess it's got the 2.8TD motor. Not the most lively but almost indestructible.

Could be worth asking on the Pilote Owners FB page? https://www.facebook.com/groups/8212...?ref=bookmarks

For my money an excellent van, have had many Pilote over the years. From the pictures that one looks to be in good condition.

One point is, in your post you suggest it is on a Fiat Ducato, the pictures show a Peugeot base!

Not one hundred percent sure of the Peugeot engines but if a Fiat produced one (and most of that era diesels were) it is possibly the manual injection motor as the electronic version didn't come in till 2001, no problem as such but a bit down on actual power than the later versions.

We've had a Pilote Reference 716P for over four years, bought second hand when 6 months old, and now with 25,000 miles on the clock it still hasn't had much wrong with it.

The Fiat 150 engine works well and despite clogging it down the M1, round the M25 and M20 on the way to Eurotunnel (and back again) the fuel consumption isn't bad.

A tap replaced in the bathroom sink and internal mechanism of the Toilet cassette malfunctioning is about the only things I can think that have gone wrong.

No water ingress and ground clearance no problem.

Check payload before buying (whichever make or model you buy) as the payload quoted by the Salesmen and Brochure seem to have been worked out on the back of a fag packet with no relation to the real world of a fully loaded holiday mode vehicle.

A few squeaks (which MH doesn't) and a few alterations (including replacing bulbs with LED ones) to some of the original habitation bits and pieces have been done but the MH has been, and still is, a good'un.

Has it got a spare wheel, what gas bottles and/or system do you have, an extra leisure battery is a bonus and Solar panel is almost essential – it is to us.

Does it have Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms, fire extinguisher and fire blanket?

You may be slightly over the 3 metres height for Toll roads abroad (higher Classe and Toll tag possibly not allowed) but measuring it accurately may help.

I'd recommend the Pilote brand and would buy their vehicles again.

Hope this helps.

I'd certainly check the payload as, according to the blurb, it has a MLW of 3,400kg which seems quite low for that size of van.

Lovely looking vehicle tho.

Welcome to the forum. Definitely a Peugeot Boxer based MH. Be interesting the know what engine fitted as some have Ford engines which have a cam chain instead of cam belt.

Re Johns point on the actual engine type, lift the bonnet and look at the aluminium data plate for the engine type number.

Look at the attached (click to enlarge) see which engine to have.

I think it's a bit on the high side for price so have a go at getting it down, £2k, also it's only a 3400kg van, so payload won't be very good, you can possibly get it uprated by SVtech or the other company.

Otherwise a really nice van, apart from it having what is usually a pretty useless smev oven, not much more than a warmer.

Looking at that list Kev what strikes me is that it's done so few miles in the last 10 years. While that could be a good thing from the point of view of some parts of the van, it'll not be good for the tyres if they haven't been changed over that period. And maybe some other engine stuff too?
