Fiat Ducato Motorhome

Wednesday, August 29 2018


We are receiving a number of calls from customers who have purchased a motorhome privately , or of a Dealer 
( who they thought were  the official recognised dealer  for that brand )  which  they found out later was  incorrect information  
so now they are up against trying to obtain a part  for that brand  or getting the fault fixed  is a problem  - no parts  
There are a number of parallel  import dealers who are not the  Licensed  dealer for that brand  being sold  - 
so check the  brands main website to see if that dealer is the official  dealer for that brand of motorhome  - before purchasing 

Be aware - A number of dealers  will not supply a part  to you , or the price could be inflated  if you have not purchased your motorhome in NZ of the official dealer. ( Ci Motorhomes NZ -  do not operate  this way )  

Also check to see  how long the dealer has been in the industry  -  You dont want them here today and gone tommorow  !!
Walkabout  Motorhomes have been in buisiness for 19 years  -  still same owners from day one   !

New Motorhome  NZ


New Zealand is a paradise !!  And we need to get out to enjoy our paradise , especially that spring is just around the corner  
You have worked hard all your life  and nothing would  be better than to have a New Motorhome with all the comforts of home.
To many people buy a cheap motorhome  and regret it as it doesnt have all the nice things we want as we get older .

So with your nice new motorhome , you would not be wanting to leave home unless you have Duraseal  Done  !!
(Can only be applied when vehicle is brand new )

Duraseal is a paint protection  to prevent the elements of nature ( sea spray, sun , rain etc ) from damaging your motorhome .  
Walkabout Sales is the only Duraseal motorhome dealer NZ
the product has been around for many years and comes with a lifetime warranty .
It  makes the vehicle easier to wash  , and prevents the surface to oxidise  - like what happens on fibreglass .

For our  SPRING  SPECIAL   -  (from now until  30th September  )
we are offering FREE DURASEAL  on any New Motorhome purchased  from Ci Motorhomes  NZ

Walkabout  Sales  - 19 Years in the motorhome industry  -  Family owned  we care

Ci  Fiat  Motorhome blog  NZ  -  Tips    

We love Fiat Ducato at Ci Motorhomes and we have a choice of brand  out of the factory  - but we only choose Fiat Ducato  
Bearing in mind 85% of motorhomes in europe sold are Fiat Ducato  -this  tells you everything  !!

The Question was asked while discussing with technical team while at the Fiat Factory  (Sevel ) Italy  -  The answer was given 
YOU DO NOT need a rear wheel drive when the vehicle weight is under 4500kg  ( as long as you have traction control on the fiat  ducato  )  

Friendly  reminder for all our valued customers  about  Fiat Ducato   - (Comfort-Matic  Gearbox)

* Do Not left foot brake when driving - or straddle the brake and accelerator at same time when braking  -  
* Do Not hold the vehicle on a hill  with the accelerator  
* No Gull Diesel  in Fiat Ducato  - advised  by Fiat and Ci Motorhomes 
* Servicing  is  required every 12 months or  20,000km  (which ever occurs first )   -
   must be serviced at a Fiat dealer ONLY.
   This is for  ( campaigns ) or software upgrades  which are frequent - very important  at a Fiat dealer for correct oils etc  
* Fiat service centres can be found here-
