On page 155 of the May issue of MMM there is a "Secondhand review" Of an MH very similar to mine.
It is the same year, It carries the same name, Autocruise Pioneer Magellan BUT.

It has a different engine, Mine has a 2,2HDi this one has 2.0Hdi

It has a different MTLP. Mine has a 3300 MGW This on has a 3400MGW

I suppose the bigger engine might have been an option, but different MGW's? Were Atuocruise known for using diffenet chassis specs for the same model of MH?

I must admit I am a bit puzzled.

I think that Autocruise CH were renowned for making each motorhome as individually different as they could :D This was good and bad. :D :(

The 2006 Starblazer, for example, was offered in four different specifications with the addition that any of those could have a 'cabover' bed pod; so that is *eight* possible variations on just that one model and they didn't all have the same heating system; hot water system; washroom system.................................... of course magazines do sometimes contain errors ......

Thanks for that Harvey. I just thought it strange that they would use different chassis for the same model.

I have a brochure for 2005/2006 Pioneer: I think yours may be a bit earlier than that but it lists the engine as '2.2HDI' and the Max mass as 3,400kg.

Also, I forgot that in addition to the *eight* models of Starblazer they also duplicated them *all* as Pioneers: so that'd be sixteen then: no wonder they got into a little bit of trouble! ........ shame

Thanks again Harvey. I guess the Pioneer and "Star" ranges had different levels of trim. I have not seen another one like ours out and about, maybe they didn't build that many.
