    Feet to fit under Romahome legs!

    Does anyone know where to get 2 of the bases to go under our Romahome legs so we don't have to carry blocks of wood. Jim and Nightowl had some that attached to the legs.

    You can get them from most caravan accessory shops or from amazon ( use the forum link!!) and search for caravan pads or caravan feet.

      Not certain, but they could be screwed to the foot of the leg

        Those are the very things. I have older ones, made of metal for my caravan. I believe they fall off quite often, so instead of permanently fixing mine, I just take them with me. They came with the caravan, if I didn't have any, I'd be carrying blocks of wood around as well, which I did with my roma. I actually think that wood is the better of the two!

            Hi Jayjay

            Why do you think wood is best?

            I have had wood split as I lower the legs, they are sometimes muddy and sopping wet when I have to put them in the van. I thought the made feet would spread the weight and be more convenient.

            Are they not as good as I think.

              Hi Patricia,
              The circular ones I have are (were? because I have had them for years) made by Raydyot. Called "Caravan Jackpad JP70". They were bought from a local caravan accessory shop.
              The "fit and forget" variety as shown on Pete's post are fine as long as the steadies have a complete loop to bolt them through so that they cannot be lost.
              The plastic ones made now do not rattle when moving as the metal ones tend to.
              Jim.

                Hi Patricia,

                Well, when I had a Roma, I only carried two blocks of wood. Maybe I was just lucky that mine never split! Also they didn't seem to sink into the ground... now the ones that came with this caravan (x4) are metal and the weight of the caravan makes them bite into the ground, so although they don't split, I have to sometimes prise them out of the ground!

                You probably wouldn't get either problem with the modern plastic ones! So I haven't bought any so I can't actually comment on those in particular. Perhaps mine came with the caravan but not attached is because, like Jim mentioned, they would probably rattle!

                  My wooden blocks are made of 20 mm.thick waterproof ply treated with Sadolin these wont spilt or soak up any water.Mine are 6" square but could do to be a little bigger when the site is really wet.

                    Feet made

                    Ok Joe and Jayjay

                    I took your advice. I cut out 2 squares of 20mm exterior plywood a bit bigger than 6" square. They are now soaking in wood preservative overnight.

                    Job done.

                        Mine are waterproof plastic!
                        But then yours are probably cheaper - still, 10 or 12 years ago mine were cheap off a car-boot sale.
                        Getting scratched now though

                          I have had two of the plastic feet split on me (good job there was 4 in the box) and ended up bolting plywood to the bottom.

                          I have now asked my vbacksmith friend to make me a pair out of checker plate. !

                              Goodness! I haven't used the steadies one single time, let alone thought re feet, pretty socks, mittens or whatever for them! My van has separate steadies like little pyramids ( a bit like jacks used when changing the tyre). Can't be bothered to give them van space. would have used steadies permanently fastened to the van, though.
                              Carpe diem! :)
