In Octber last year, the Isle of Wight-based manufacturer launched what is probably the world’s smallest professionally-converted motorhome – the Romahome R10.
Based on the award-winning Citroen Nemo, the R10 is a single berth motorhome complete with popup roof, twin burner hob, Porta Potti toilet and sink. Heating is optional and even an awning can be provided.
The R10 has been consistently popular since its launch and the recent National Boat Caravan and Outdoor Show at the NEC saw the company take orders for four of these great little ‘vans, as well as two of Romahome’s larger models.
Freeborn Group [Romahome’s parent company] Managing Director Andrew Jones said that “The company seems to have hit the perfect blend of products at the right time, so as the recession bites for other makers we have suddenly become very attractive.”
Jones also commented that his buyers fitted a profile he believes is represented throughout the UK’s economy at present: “Younger people were not spending because of job uncertainty while older people were keen to dispose of cash that would be unprotected by FSA compensation.”
