As you have noticed there are not many Ford based owners on the Forum. There are Duettos , Amathysts and a couple of Rienza owners like me. 
 If you are not keen on the Seval based Pugs etc you are limited to the choice of motorhomes available. I think  Autosleeper only used the Ford Chassis for dealer specials. We looked at an Ascot when we were trying to decide what to change our Duetto for. They are a nice motorhome but at the time there was only one on the market and the Rienza offered the layout we prefer, a double or singles and a bit more room. 
 One weekend  away did the polite thing and waved at other motorhomes on the road. We only got a couple of return waves from other Ford owners. Are these Seval owners above us lowly Ford owners ???.

Not just dealer specials. AS used to build on the Ford chassis, but unfortunately the supply was unreliable and so they stopped using them.  Monocoque models included the Amethyst, Excelsior and Legend and the first wave of styrofoam coachbuilts were available on Ford and Peugeot.  They were the Pollensa, Pescara and Ravenna.

Don't forget the Windsor. Roli had one.

Being a Ford Fan (particularly Mk7) I will admit to seeing 1 Ascot think it lives in West Yorkshire and a member of ASOC and rallies with them.

In that family of vans there was the Wilton, Windsor, Ascot and Eton, all of which were mechanically better that their Sevel cousins

I've got a Windsor, and very pleased with it. Had so many problems with my last Fiat van, I wanted the next one to be anything but a Fiat

Agree with you there  up!  Hope you don't have any problems with the EGR valve.
