Question x290 cab, central storage box

Hi there, I have a 2019 Ducato Motorhome. It is fitted with the bottle holder unit in the centre bottom of the dash. I much prefer the storage box in this area and understand that it is a straight swap. On looking on line I have found several for sale at around 120 in UK. Using the part number, as a search I've found some in Germany for 80, but with a note saying it is only suitable for LHD vehicles. Has anyone any experience of this part, who can explain how a part with the same number, can be in 2 different versions.

Many thanks for reading such a long post

Many thanks to WhineO, for his attempts to get to the bottom of this query. It seems that the part in question has several types of numbers, and until today all the UK new part suppliers were asking 4 figure numbers, and the continental suppliers were cheaper, but state not for R. H.Drive use. However late this afternoon I found a UK motor dealership selling one for 75, and have ordered one.

Hi John W,
A couple of questions please: What do you see as the main benefits of having the storage in place of the cup holders? And also can you link to the supplier you found?
Many thanks
Howard.

@John W

Would you be interested in selling the drinks holder that you have just removed?

I am looking for a black one incl the usb charger.

Thanks
Raymond

P Man, I find that particular storage bin to be ideal for Map books and iPads, and the drinks bin gets in the way, we always stop for drinks when touring. We are in a motorhome, which perhaps is used differently from commercials.

Finyar, I may be selling it once I have it replaced, but it hasn't the USB socket, if you search for 71807348, you will find the Glove box, which is usually followed by the bit you want.
