Hi folks

First post and many thanks for accepting me onto the forum! 

We're taking collection of our 2002 Nuevo in couple of weeks, (downsizing from an Autotrail Chieftain), so just trying to get some general information to keep me going - I've not found a owners manual to download yet so got a few newbie style questions!

  • whats the fuel tank capacity and what sort of rough mpg does the 2ltr HDI engine return?
  • whats the fresh water tank capacity?
  • I couldnt see any standard 12v sockets in the hab area, just something that looks more like a shaving point in the plugs above the fridge under the spice rack - what do folk generally use?


Many thanks in advance!!

This is the plug I think you are needing.  Plenty to pick from on eBay or a caravan shop.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Here is a little tip. With a normal size garden hose and again Normal water Pressure. It takes about a minute to put in 10 Ltrs . So 6 - 7 Minutes Should fill the water tank.

Well also just bought a 2004 Nuevo. Lovely machine we think. Just got home from a short trip in ours

I wired one of those plugs to one of these below. That way you have a lot of options. Just remember not to overload it

Hi and welcome to this very informative forum. You will not be disappointed with your Nuevo. We love ours. It is spacious inside for the two of us and our dog, yet easy to park in a normal space. I reckon I get around 32 - 34mpg when on longer journeys. Less for shorter runs locally. Have fun!
