Holidays with the motorhome

The Fiat Ducato is one of the most popular vans taken as the basis for a motorhome. But its emission class does not meet all the requirements for a carefree holiday. That is about to change.

Especially now in the autumn holidays, many people are taking their motorhomes on holiday once again. The temperatures have not yet dropped so low that it would be unpleasant to spend the night in the mobile home. The weather is still good enough to drive around without any problems. If it weren't for the many environmental zones that you're not even allowed to enter with your motorhome.

Nothing is more annoying than having to stop your motorhome because the entrance to your holiday destination does not allow Euroclass 5 vehicles. So if you have the wrong Euro class, you have to leave your mobile home outside the zone. While there are already upgrade options for many vans, they have been a long time coming for the Ducato. This is now a thing of the past: older models can be retrofitted to reduce pollutant emissions to such an extent that they meet the requirements and comply with Euroclass 6. The technology converts harmful nitrogen oxides into harmless nitrogen and water vapour. An upgrade costs about 7,500 euros.

But not everyone has that kind of money to spend on their holiday vehicle, and they have to know exactly what the restrictions are for entering an environmental zone. Above all, the appropriate sticker must be purchased in good time to avoid unpleasant surprises and penalties, some of which can be considerable. To be able to go on holiday with a motorhome without any worries, it is good to know in advance where you can drive freely with your vehicle and the corresponding emission class.
