Just purchased a new Nuevo EK which we are delighted with.
Due to health issues, my wife is unable to lift her leg high enough to use the passenger door entrance step. Is there a good solution to this where a fixed step could be installed.
Also, is there a good set of front mud flaps on the market.

A couple of members have had electrically operated retractable steps fitted - I'm sure one of them will pick this up.

Towtal of Stoke will fit electric step, Essenjay of Poole do fixed side steps. This company make their own for you to fit or find your own fitter..

Mud flaps from Peugeot will do the job and easy to fit. Probably pattern ones will be just as efficient.

My 2009 Nuevo had built in step each side, passenger and driver. Also with the step there is no need for front mudflaps.

Fitted mudflaps on my 2015 Nuevo, and will have to fit them on my Broadway, i think they should be fitted as standard so much muck flies up.

I got mine off the internet which was cheaper than Peugeot.  As far as I can see they are all pretty much the same and easy to fit.  I would describe them as spats rather than flaps.  They look smart and keep some of the mud off the front but they could do to be larger.  I also fitted extensions to the rear mud flaps that were already fitted but to be honest they haven't made much difference.

When we were looking for cab steps for our van we decided on the Essanjay ones, thought they were the better ones and have been very pleased with them. He prefers to fit them himself rather than send to be self or locally fitted.  Quite a long way to go but spent a few days down there.

As Paulhas has already said Towtal at Stoke, who fitted ours. They will let you overnight if you have travelled a distance.   Think there are pictures on here so where of ours.  Well worth the expense. Your wife will appreciate one
