Romahome Demountable D20
Romahome have gone back to their roots and produced their latest model which is a demountable pod on a DFSK Big Cab, it is made for Romahome by Addabak Ltd.
The GRP pod is similar in looks to the popular R20 and features two bench seats with a choice of trims, these will easily convert to two single beds or a large double bed by putting cushions down the centre gangway.
There are two side windows with fly screens and blinds and an overhead heiki roof light to give lots of light.
Storage space is located under the bench seats one of which can be accessed from the outside and in overhead storage space running down both sides of the interior. There is also a cupboard situated in the luton which is ideal for bedding etc. Just inside the rear entry door there is a small wardrobe area on one side and cupboard suitable for a porta potti.
In contrast to the R20 the kitchen/galley is at the front of the pod at the behind the cab and incorporates a three way 60 litre fridge, a two ring hob with glass top and a sink with cold water tap. There is also a small worktop area for food preparation etc.
A 90 amp leisure battery supplies power when not using the electric hook up facility, an option to include solar panels is available. On board fresh water tank and waste tank are included and there is a locker to store a 6kg gas bottle.
According to the manufacturers the pod can be demounted in about 15 minutes, standing legs are included if you want to demount and the side panels and tailgate can then be put back on to use the pick up truck, ideal for self employed people, builders or even domestic use such as trips to the tip, furniture moving etc.
Options include: toilet compartment, choice of trim, propex gas heating, reversing sensors, 240v socket, mains hook up, TV.
Romahome R20 fans who bemoan its demise will love this new incarnation but they may be shocked by the fact that they will no longer achieve 50 mpg as the DFSK with petrol engine will probably return around 35 mpg.
