For a single person I find my C15 Hytop Romahome is perfect.
I tried a bigger van on a short wheel base Relay, but for all the extra space it didn't feel any more convenient in use than the Romahome.
As you say it's horses for courses - it suits me fine!

Thanks. I've been around for quite a while, but as a shy, retiring type I tend to just sit back and read what everyone else has to say.
It seems that that most folks on here have large motorhomes, so not everything feels that it applies to me. However there is a lot of interesting stuff about motor homing in general.

Mary Tisdall who writes or used to write for MMM travelled all over Europe for about 6 months every year in an even smaller Romahome.

Don Madge posted on here about her having had it stolen from outside her house a few years ago.

Anybody know? Did she ever recover it?

Hi Gail - we don't all drive wheeled palaces.

Some of us are quite happy with something small that can be parked anywhere, has no height barrier issues, car prices on ferries, have no worries with narrow Devon lanes and laugh (well at least don't cry), all the way to the fuel pump.

She doesn't appear to have sat down and moped over the loss. What an inspiring lady ! This is today's Telegraph:

Hi Tony

I agree with everything you said, but I did have an issue with a barrier at a car park in Chester.

Live and learn! Must concentrate

That's dated 2007 lower down

Mary was 82 in 2004, so she would be 89 now and the article says she "is now in her 85th year." So it must have been written in late 2006/early 2007.

I met her a couple of times on the MMM stand at various shows - a genuinely nice and friendly lady.

We went to a Motorhome Open Event at a dealership in Godalming Surrey on Saturday and happened to see the latest Romahome. Called the New R20 its the same length as the traditional coachbuilt Romahome but wider and slightly taller.
Much more spacious inside with a bigger rear door and although not big enough for our family it would be great for a single person or a couple. Two forward facing rear seats with three point belts so it can also be used as a car.
Totally agree with the positive comments in this thread-the van's ideal as it can be used every day as a car and close to 50mpg is double what we get with our bigger motor home.
Definitely horses for courses and you can see why they're so popular.
