The Romahome R20 (pre 2012) is based on the Citroen Berlingo 1600 diesel van, it is a two berth compact motorhome with all the attention to detail that we have come to expect from the Romahome brand.
It is easy to drive, is only 16' 5" long and the Lo version is 6'4" high which means it will fit in a garage or multi storey car park. The Hi version is 7'6" high.
The 1.6HDi diesel engine is very economical and will return 40-50 mpg according to the manufacturers.
Galley area It comes complete with a compact galley kitchen with two burner hob and grill under which is a 3-way fridge. Opposite the hob on the other side of the van is sink unit above which is a neat little wardrobe hanging space for your long clothes. Underneath the sink is a cupboard or if it has the toilet option there will be a lift up sink and under it a door which opens to reveal a porta potti.
Storage There is a fair amount of storage under the bench seats which run along each side of the van. In the Hi version there are two cupboard above the benches one either side the van and a large luton area for extra storage. In the Lo version the luton area is only big enough for the table and maybe some flat folding chairs and there are no cupboards above the window, there is however a handy pelmet that allows storage for bits and bobs.
Day Time The bench seats are great for lounging and watching the world go by. There is the option to have a Pullman layout with a side table and two facing chairs or alternatively a long narrow table supplied fits in the middle gangway. There is ample light from a large heiki roof light. For day use the roof of the Lo version lifts up to accommodate standing in the galley area.
Night Time The bench seats themselves serve as two single beds or with the addition of the wooden slats provided will make a large double bed. There are handy spot lights above the seats. The cab area is curtained off at night time for privacy. Two side opening windows have blinds and fly screens.
The van has a fresh water and waste water tank, there are two outside lockers one of which holds the gas bottle and the other is a handy storage area for muddy boots, levellers etc.
Mains hook up is standard and a leisure battery is supplied, blown air heating is offered as an option.
