For Sale: A beautiful example of the Citroen C15 ROMAHOME HyLo. I absolutely love her but its time to upgrade to a bigger van, so she needs a new loving owner. She is cute, cosy and full of love. We have had numerous fun adventures in her. I really hope she goes to someone who will love her as much as we have. Runs really well and mega economical on fuel. Two additional rear seat belts so seats four (lap belts). Exterior has been professionally buffed this summer and old decals removed. Interior – In May I had her gas and electrics safety checked and had the following additions completed by a professional campervan specialist: New battery. New leisure battery Solar panels to the roof. USB ports LED downlighting. Fully reupholstered New curtains. Two single beds or one large double – we used it with an awning which added on extra sleeping and lounge facilities (awning not included in this listing). Twin bench sofas easily convert into a generous double bed which turns the whole width of the camper into a bed. Kitchen – end galley style with. Flavel twin hob gas cooker. Integral gas grill and new grill pan. Electrolux fridge with ice cube section (fridge runs when hooked up to the mains). Fold down worktops/splash guard. Rear stable style door with locks – rear habitation door entrance area is easy to get in and out of with its low entrance height – the door having windows in it means that you can see out through your rear view mirror whilst driving too.

Integral blinds and fly/mosquito nets. Mains 240V hook up and original mains type interior plug sockets. Heating system (blown warm air) and insulated lining. Cooling system (blown cool air).

Romahome C15 Diesel – Island plastics Limited – Comes with factory fitted power assisted steering as standard. Long life marine quality fibreglass moulding. Specification includes: Twin berth with the option of 2 x singles or 1 x double, 2 x roof vents, 2 burner gas hob, fold-down side tables, 12v lights. Leisure battery, 2-way fridge (gas/12v) kitchen sink and tap with internal water pump (currently not functioning). Huge overhead storage above drivers cab as well as under seat storage, food cupboards, outside locker. Also has 240v hook up. For those not familiar with Romahomes, they were made on the Isle of Wight to a very high standard. A key feature is the body, made in one piece from durable fibreglass. As a result, Romahome’s never have damp problems. The HyLo has always been a sought after model because it was the only Romahome variant which had a full length lift up roof, adding some 30 cm of height. The Romahome is built on a Citroen C15 chassis. The engine is a bullet proof 1.7 Citroen Diesel, renowned for its simplicity and long life. Some minor rust spots here and there (she is old) but all the whelding was done in 2021 and overall she is in wonderful condition for her age. There is a minor leak in the water coolant tank so I just keep a bottle of ready mixed with me and top it up every so often. Crack to the exterior double glazed panel of the back window – the interior pane is not damaged at all, so it’s still waterproof etc – the crack has now been repaired using waterproof tuff tape. My campervan specialist has said that its easily repairable – just need to get a replacement.
