Comparing the Apollo Adria SP 600 (130 .. 150hp-6m) with the Jayco FD19 (180hp-6.4m)
Ducato vans drive very nicely and a lot of the long term motorhome owners here in Australia are very happy, but there are exceptions. If you go to some online complaint websites problems often dominate the agenda, probably due to our human tendency to spend time online when stuff goes wrong.
So at the motorhome show 2018 in Melbourne I signed a contract with Apollo for the Adria Twin 600 , and thereafter I read the Ducato forum posts. Many where relating to the 2013/14 model which was dubbed "Motorhome from hell" by its british owner - see Motorhomefromhell.com. Fortunately this problem has been fixed in the current model from 2014/2015 on wards. Rain water cascading into the engine bay can upset the electrical systems and the Fiat patch up fixes introduced during the 8 year life cycle of the affected model where deemed inadequate by some forum members. So if you own the older model check you engine bay often enough for corrosion and blockages. Thanks to my thorough research I could get out of the contract and ended up with the superior Aussie built Jayco FD19 with 180 horse powers and a much longer 5 year warranty ! Adrias Europran warranty was only 2 years.
