    Citroen C15 HYLo Romahome

    Hello again . I am trying to establish if there are different models of the C15 HYLO. for example ford done an escort in L , GL , Ghia etc.

    I have tried to research this , but with no joy !

    Thank you

    Hi, I used to own a 1997 C15 Hylo. As far as I know there were no model variations such as you suggest but , from 1995, the base vehicle was fitted with power steering and the habitation section had a smev hob and updated upholstery.

      From some research I have done, the original C15 was based on a petrol model. This was improved upon by using diesel Citroen Visa van chassis which had upgraded suspension. Later models had power steering and a canvas lift up roof, not necessarily introduced at the same time as when the Berlingo was first used.
      For the definitive answer I would suggest that ant is involved.

        Hi there. I have a very late 2001 C15 Hylo Grand Finale. The only real differences I think on mine is that it was factory fitted with a Romahome first aid kit, it has slightly thicker bench seat cushions and was fittted with the later DW8 diesel engine.

        I know that you could spec. up the models a little bit by adding blow air heating, leisure battery and EHU etc. but these were more like an options list than specific model types.

        You could also specify upholstered driver and passenger seat in the same colour as the pod upholstery. As has been said, Ant will definitely know.

        Not sure if this helps but I hope it does.

          The C15 Hylo was introduced in 1989 on the cut down C15 van chassis, the roof was raised by compressed air, and covered the large windows that the Hytop was fitted with, the rams that did the work could be a bit troublesome so Romahome went to the "Handraulic" version in 1990/91 (H reg) where you shoved the roof up ( front first then the back), the roof didn't cover any part of the side window as the current window was fitted at this stage. The C15 Hylo was fitted to the platform cab (765kg) in 1991/2 but was unchanged externally until the Berlingo Hylo was introduced in late 1999 with the front hinged canvas roof.
          The engines on the C15 Romahomes were usually the 1769cc diesel with a few early 1100 cc petrol but the petrol chassis was always a light one not really suited to the body weight of the Romahome. Latterly the DW8 1.9 Diesel engine was fitted. Originally the C15 was fitted with the 2CV engine but this was never used with the Romahome.

            Many thanks for your response. I think the reason I intially asked is because the Hylo that I am looking to purchase does not have a fridge. Nor does it have the vent on the side for one. Not saying this is a bad thing because I have read on this forum the vent can be a problem with a cold wind blowing. Newer compressor fridges come without the need for the vent too. Its not a game changer the lack of fridge, just thought there might have been variations in models. Thanks Again
