Romahome R20 - any advice please
 
My sister in law and her husband are considering purchasing this.

http://www.romahome.com/romahome-pro...home/r20-hi/96

I just wondered if any member had experience of this small motorhome and what advice they could give.

Thanks

Really just get a motorhome as they can be lived in wheras that thing is just useless unless a teenager.

Not everyone wants, or can accommodate a large motorhome.

If they are looking at something that size then presumably that's what they want. We all have differents needs and wants.

I beg to differ. My parents have had a succession of Romahomes and they love them, particularly the fact that they are hardly bigger than a car and so will fit in car parks.

My mother has limited mobility, so having everything within easy reach is very important, as is driving to somewhere rather than walking or taking public transport.

Neither of them are comfortable driving anything larger.

It'd drive me nuts, but they are in their eighties and until recently would think nothing of heading off across europe for months at a time, living out of it continuously. They've been to just about every corner of western Europe, including as far afield as Norway & Sweden, and down to Croatia & Slovenia. All in a Romahome.

So, each to his or her own.

There are some obvious compromises due to the small size: Tiny cooker & fridge, restricted storage space, you're on top of each other the whole time, little privacy whilst using the loo. can't move from driving seats to lounge without leaving the vehicle and re-entering through the rear door.

Seen a couple of them and they seem "arse" :o end heavy, might need some extra rear end suspension fix

When we started looking at Campers we seriously considered Rhomahome.
The sales man suggested we sit in one for a while then imagine it was peeing down with rain.
The lack of space to move about convinced us we needed to go larger.
But we have met many people who are well satisfied and I bet they have a wry smile when they see guys with "A" class and RV's struggling to get into Le Clerc or Geant ( usually have height barriers).

We use one as a courtesy car when we take our van into the dealer. We've always been impressed with the build and quality of the layout and the ease of driving.

We've " sold" several to people who have asked to look round when we've been parked.

We met a single lady camping in one recently and got the user guided tour and we were impressed with how much could be packed in and how cleverly it was thought out.

In terms of doing the job we want it ticks most of our boxes.

Thank you for all the differing views, As one said, horse for courses.

I had a romahome for 7 years, mainly used it on my own, but had a few holidays with a friend. Goodas an everyday vehiclebut wont go under a height barrier.
Yes storage can be limited, but it can be in larger vans too. Depends on needs and planned usage.
Economy is a consideration too I got about 50mpg in my petrol van.
There is a romahome owners group too.
