238 camper

Hi everyone,
I have just brought a 1982 fiat 238 motorhome. I was wondering what is the best modifications to do to it?
At the moment it is still in Italy and I have to wait for all the restriction to be lifted before I can go and drive it back. So just wanted to do some research so I can make a plan of what to do.
Many thanks

Hi
Fill it up with as many spare parts as you can before you drive it back.
Not sure if it will avoid the import duty (or whatever it is post Brexit) but it will save a fortune in postage.

Great idea thanks. I take it then there are no parts dealers in the UK?

Re: 238 camper

I can't speak specifically on the 238 (I have a 900T).
However, https://www.ricambio.co.uk has always been a good source for parts but if you have time to search and wait Ebay (Italy) is a good place.
Also if you are not worried about originality it's worth checking out the performance shops e.g. Demon Tweaks or Merlin Motorsport (they can often make up alternatives, sometimes at less cost that the originals).
