Romahomes were first built under the guise of Island Plastics Ltd who were renowned for being GRP moulders of boats and vehicles. In 2001 Romahome Ltd was set up and in the next decade became one of the UK’s most reputable manufacturers of small motorhomes celebrated for its conversions of small vans into “micro-motorhomes”. Above all, the company philosophy was to design vehicles 'small enough to be used as a car but still big enough to be used as a motor home'.
Special Vehicle Projects (SVP Ltd) took over the old Romahome business in September 2013 when the lease expired on the factory in Cowes. A licence agreement was set up between SVP Ltd and Addabak Ltd to guarantee continued production of new and used Romahomes.
Addabak leased a large factory adjoining the old site and were able to employ most of the experienced Romahome staff.As a result, many of the employees at the manufacturing plant in Cowes have decades of experience in their craft and a substantial number have been involved in manufacturing Romahomes for up to thirty years. You can therefore always rely on new build Romahomes to be structurally sound and durable, as well as containing all the comforts of home.
All Romahomes are built using Citroen as base vehicles. New models are built on the Nemo which converts into the R10 and the latest model Relay for the R30.
The very successful R20 Hi and Lo models are built on the Citroen Berlingo. The retail price depends on the age of the van chosen as we have a selection of used Berlingos from delivery mileage vans just registered to low mileage vehicles up to four years old. We simply build a brand new conversion on a used van with a consequent saving against the list price.
Romahome has dealers in the south, the West Country, Yorkshire, eastern Scotland (Perth) and even Sweden.
We also have a steadily growing owners’ club with branches throughout the UK, and enjoy a presence at a large number of motorhome shows in Britain and abroad.
