Peugeot Boxer motorhome jumping out of gear

I have a motorhome on a Peugeot Boxer van chassis. The problem is when accelerating it jumps out of fifth gear. Is this an easy fix or will the gearbox need changing?

Unfortnately it's a common problem due condensation inside the transmission when these vehicles are left standing for long periods. Needs a specialist gearbox rebuild. Never happened when they were vans doing 50,000 miles a year for 4-5 years, then scrapped. Try: www.midwesttrans.com/ www.standardtransmission.com/trannies.html/ etc. No joy, Google <manual transmission rebuilds>
