Aside from the fact that we have an Inca, this question is probably pretty generic to all Autosleepers, if not most motorhomes: After removing all the nuts, bolts, brackets and screws that I can physically see and get to, the rear bumper still won't come off. Does anybody know if there are any 'hidden' brackets that need attention?

Don't know about the Inca but when I was lucky enough to do a tour of the assembly line around 7 years ago it was very clear that the big lower side trims are stuck on with Sikaflex or similar. I suspect that the rear bumper (if you can call it that) is the same, certainly on my Nuevo.

Thanks Ron. That's worrying! I have to get it off to repair a big hole!

Ring the service centre - they will tell you.

Can you repair the hole in situ? A year or two ago I fitted rear sensors and was able to access behind the skirt. If you need to repair a hole then it's probably a fibre glass mat patch that you will want to do which might be done by reaching behind? Just a thought?
