Base Vehicle Specification
All our conversions are based on the new Fiat Ducato 2.2 Multijet III 140hp manual in Polar white with Consort graphics as standard.
Base Vehicle Options
Lanzarote grey colour paint finish is also available as an alternative to Polar white. The engine can be upgraded from a 140hp to a 180hp Manual (Reef & Oslo) and there is also the option of a fully automatic 9 speed gearbox on all models.
Sat Nav with 10” touchscreen, reversing camera & DAB radio, Android & Apple compatible.
Other options include: Cab air conditioning, cruise control and alloy wheels.
The Fiat Ducato is fitted with an immobiliser as standard, however for added security you may wish to add a Thatcham category 1 alarm - Phantom Vanguard 2-1 TSC152 which may also be a requirement of your insurance company, for additional security we also offer a monitored tracker - Phantom Pro 3 TSC217.
Our high spec kitchens have ample work surface, 3 burner hob, 36L oven and grill, 90 or 152L fridge freezer, large pantry drawer and easy access drawer storage for cutlery, crockery and pans etc. The large stainless steel sink comes complete with mono mixer, drainer tray and wireware drainer.
Our spacious washrooms are fitted with Thetford electric flush toilet, drop down basin and mono mixer, mono shower mixer, mirror storage cabinet, chrome fitted accessories and heating vent outlet.
The lounge area comes complete with luxury upholstery, spacious overhead locker storage and two tables which are stored above the cab, a smaller drinks/dinette table and a full size dining table. We also supply an additional table pole and tripod for outdoor table use.
The lounge quickly converts into a comfortable sleeping area using the side cushions as the centre infil and is configured using our easy-slide out bed system.
The leisure batteries and charging system are key factors in the day to day running of your motorhome so it is important that the leisure batteries are up to the job. We fit 2 x 95a deep cycle leisure batteries as standard (190a).
The Charging System
The quality of your leisure batteries is important, but what is equally important is the means by which the batteries are recharged, leisure batteries receive a charge from three sources:
1. Mains hook up charger
This has been the most common way of charging the leisure batteries and in the past mains hook up was necessary to maintain a charge to the batteries. Now with alternative charge sources available, it is possible to maintain a charge to the leisure batteries without the need for a constant mains supply, giving you the option to spend more time off grid.
2. Vehicle alternator charge
When the vehicle engine is running, the alternator recharges the vehicle starter battery and by connecting the leisure batteries to the starter battery some of the charge created by the alternator finds it’s way into the leisure batteries, so the leisure batteries will receive a charge when the engine is running.
3. Solar panel
A roof mounted 100w solar panel is a good source of power and we fit one 100w as standard to trickle charge the batteries giving you several days independent camping. To achieve prolonged periods of static mains free camping we recommend that you add
a second or third 100w solar panel.
Lighting & USB ports
All our conversions have warm white LED lighting throughout, each light is individually switched to give you total control over your ambient lighting. Numerous USB charging ports are conveniently sited to charge your devices, so you’ll be able to charge several devices at the same time.
4 x 230v sockets are conveniently placed in the kitchen area and lounge for use when you are on mains, we also include a 25m mains hook-up cable as part of our comprehensive package.
Auto retract step
The entrance step will extend and retract at the press of a button and for safety reasons will automatically retract as soon as the ignition is turned on.
Our roof mounted omni-directional digital TV aerial gives you the best possible chance of finding a signal as you retune between areas.
Heating and Plumbing
We have fully utilised the underside of the van to optimise the volume of the fresh and waste water. The underslung tanks are made of a thick insulated and durable high grade plastic so that they will not freeze when in use during the winter months. There is the
option of adding a small defrost element for use in extreme sub-zero temperatures.
Heating and hot water
The Truma Combi boiler heating and hot water system operates on either gas or mains electric with an even distribution of heating outlets throughout the van. It is fitted with a digital thermostat and timer so that you can control the heating system day and night.
Refillable Gas Tanks
All our vans are fitted with a 25L underslung gas tank with level guage monitor, this allows you to easily manage your gas and significantly reduces the cost of refilling.
Windows and Rooflights
Privacy tinted Polyvision double glazed windows and large Heki rooflights ensure that the living area is light, well ventilated and condensation free. All windows and rooflights have blinds and flyscreens.
All our van conversions are fully insulated with grade 3 thermal insulation, fully winterised and perfect for all year round use.
Your Consort conversion will need a habitation service once a year, this is a safety requirement and gives us the opportunity to completely check all aspects of your conversion, it is also a condition of your 3 year warranty.
Base Vehicle Service
Your base vehicle can be serviced at any main Fiat dealership in Europe during your two-year warranty period and thereafter at any service centre/local garage of your choice.
Kitchen Door Finishes
All doors come as standard in our matching Sand Oak finish. As a contemporary option, we offer the kitchen doors in Matt Grey or Matt Ivory.
Upgrade to a 152L fridge freezer with overhanging wardrobe.
Exchange 152L fridge freezer for 90L inc. extra wardrobe (no cost).
Leather Trimmed Rear Upholstery
Our luxury upholstery is available with a leather trim creating an easy wipe clean and durable finish, the front seats are also trimmed in leather to match - our upholstery is available in either a Grey or Beige colour scheme.
Protect your upholstery from spills and stains using the very latest upholstery guard.
Fiamma F80S Awning
The Fiamma wind out awning creates the perfect shade area adjacent to the sliding door for those hot sunny days.
Fiamma Rear Door Mounted Bike Rack
The Fiamma carry-bike is designed specifically for the Fiat Ducato and will carry two bikes with a combined weight of up to 35kg. It folds upwards when not in use and still allows access via the rear doors. Other bike racks are available, please ask for details.
Standard Tow Bar
We fit a Ducato specific high quality tow bar with 13 pin electrics suitable for towing or to accomodate a tow bar mounted bike rack.
Swing Away Tow Bar (for Bike Rack)
A swing away tow bar can be fitted to take a tow bar mounted bike rack e.g. Thule - this will allow the bike rack to swing away from the rear doors giving you full access to the rear boot storage area.
Avtex 24” Smart TV
The Avtex 24” Smart TV has an auto retune facility which allows you to easily retune your TV as you travel between different reception areas, we supply this fitted with an adjustable bracket. The Smart facility gives you access to all your favourite catch up channels - use your phone hot spot or a mobile router for internet access.
Flyscreen for Sliding Door
An internal sliding flyscreen can be fitted to the sliding door to allow extra ventilation and deter flying insects from getting in.
External Gas Barbeque Point
An external gas barbeque point can be fitted on the near side rear quarter to connect your barbeque to the underslung gas tank supply.
Fresh Water Tank Defrost
A 12v heated element can be fitted to the fresh water tank to prevent the water freezing in extreme sub-zero temperatures.
Perma Shine Paint Protection
A durable high gloss finish to protect your paint work and maintain its shine without the need for polishing, this also makes washing your motorhome so much easier.
Internal Thermal Cab Screens
Internal thermal screens attach to the front windscreen and the door windows to insulate the cab area. These also work to black out the cab keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Remis Cab Blinds
An alternative to internal thermal cab screens are Remis concertina cab blinds which can be fitted to the cab area.
Mains Free Plus
Additional 100w Solar Panels
A second and third 100w solar panel can be fitted to add even more charge to the leisure batteries, this is ideal for those who prefer to spend more time mains free camping.
An inverter will turn the 12v power stored in the leisure batteries to 230v mains power and with careful battery management it is the perfect solution to having occasional mains power when not on hook up.
A 1000w inverter will give you the facility to charge electric bike batteries, use a small hairdryer as well as hair straighteners and any other small electrical appliances.
It is worth noting that the use of an inverter will significantly discharge the batteries and it is important to keep an eye on the battery status and replenish the power used via mains, alternator/driving or solar.
If it becomes apparent that you are spending more time off grid and your standard leisure batteries are unable to keep up with your increased power usage even with the addition of a second and third solar panel, it may be worth upgrading to AGM batteries.
AGM batteries are a step up from standard deep cycle leisure batteries and will perform better when spending more time off grid.
