ROMAHOME'S NEW R20
The latest model from Romahome is the New R20 which was unveiled at the NEC Caravan and Motorhome Show in October 2011.
Designed by Barry Stimson to fit the latest Citroen Berlingo chassis, the main difference to notice straight away is that the New R20 is wider than the model it replaces but is still recognisable inside with all the features we have come to know and love.
There are two versions of this model the hi and the lo, the latter will easily fit under 2m height barriers and has a lift up roof when camping. The extra width of both models has been utilised to provide a wider door facilitating easy access.
Romahome provide a 10 year warranty on all its GRP components, the warranty remains in place after accidental damage provided repairs are carried out by Romahome or a dealer approved by the manufacturer.
Inside the Romahome you have a range of flexible seating arrangements and L shaped lounge or pullman layout giving two rear passenger seats with full three point safety belts. The pullman layout can now be used on both sides of the van not just one side as on other models. The kitchen or galley consists of a two burner hob (no grill) with a fridge beneath on one side and on the other a sink with cupboards above and below. There are pelmets above the two side windows giving extra storage space for all those bits and bobs and a clever pull out storage for the table under the luton area which also gives lots of space (in the hi model) for lots of other camping necessities. Further storage can be found under the comfortable side seats, which convert into to single or a large double bed for a comfortable nights sleep. A large heiki roof light in the living area gives plenty of natural light and ventilation when needed.
At the moment the porta potti fits into a neat little drawer in the L-shaped lounge layout but Romahome plan to offer a toilet option as in previous models where the porta potti sits under the sink which lifts up to enable you to use the porta potti. This however means you don't have a cupboard under the sink.
