We have a 55 plate Nuevo on a Peugeot Boxer base. I have seen conflicting advice about how frequently the cam belt should be changed - I am anxious not to overdo it. Last done in 2016 but obviously the mileage is relatively low compared to how it would have been used as a commercial van.

Any thoughts would be welcome

8 years old, regardless of mileage,  I'd get it changed.

Thanks Paul. That was one of the various options I'd heard, but having it confirmed by a forum member is a clincher.

Cheers
