    Berlingo Romahome Model Types

    Hi all,

    I've been chatting in another thread and I've suddenly realised, that I do not know my Berlingo Romahome model types. I know about Hylos and Hytops, but its versions of Berlingo Romahome I don't recognise. I've heard mention of the Duo, But I don't really know what makes a Duo different from a standard older Berlingo. Or was there a standard Berlingo Romahome?

    So so if you have a Berlingo Romahome, would you reply here and let us know what year it is and what model it is? It might help anyone looking to buy a Berlingo.

    I think I've made sense....

          The page isn't quite up to date. Sometime, probably around 2005 the Outlook for renamed to the R20 (to align with the expanding model range of R10, R25 and R30), again available as Hytop and Hylo. Also available as a standard bench seat on both sides configuration or for a little extra the Pullman configuration where the passenger side has forward and rear facing seats (full seat belt and lap belt respectively) rather than a long bench seat. But the Pullman comes with GRP panel to fill in the footwell and support the seat back from the rear-facing seat, turning it into a standard bench configuration. This is essential as it is required if a double bed is to be set up. In fact the Pullman allows for the standard 2 single beds or a large double and additionally a U-shaped bed (which is our current preference).

          I suspect that apart from rebranding and possibly minor cosmetic changes the pre-2010 R20's were exactly the same as their Outlook predecessor.

          In 2010 another version of R20 (again both hi and lo) was built in the new Berlingo chassis. This van is slightly wider than the original, had a wide rear door but fussier bed cushion attachment because of the new chassis's higher wheel arch.

          BrianTheSnail is one of the very last R20's on the original Berlingo chassis. In fact we were offered a choice but preferred the simplicity of the older chassis's bed cushion arrangement.

            Tut, tut! We go to all the trouble of creating the website full of useful information and you don't look at it. Naughty Panda.
