    Romini Trio

    I see there are three Romini’s on ebay at the moment. They vary in price and condition.

      It made me smile one seller started their description with 'very rare' or something like it & there are 3 listed
      I bet they are miffed

        When I looked this morning only one Romini seemed to be still listed. And the least desirable one at that.
        I get amusement and satisfaction out of watching the Romini auction sale offers. Because mine, bought on impulse, having quickly disposed of my previous caravan - the sole use of that 'van' (just once after my wife passed away) left me in mental distress.
        The impulsive purchase of my Romini for £900 was when I spotted it on a local car sales pitch. And stopped out of curiosity. Then realising it had no memories connected to the absence of my wife, was a saviour.
        As long as my health holds up, I will not sell my Romini. I will just have a smirk at the prices they are fetching now!
        Unfortunately, along with age and failing health, Cleaning and kitting out the Romini though small. Is becoming rather a chore.
        A pity really because hooking it up and towing the Romini for any distance is not! The only chore there emanating from the "60" sticker on the back!

        Keeping people waiting is stealing a part of their lives.

          Jim, your Romini and yourself are icons to aspire to. Although mine is a recent purchase I cannot foresee a time when I will be parted from her.

            Been in touch with the seller of this one, it is number 786071 and was owned at one time by Warwick Davis. Obviously made by Island Plastic.

              I bought my last Eriba from this seller and was not disappointed, he is knowledgeable and was very safety conscious as I was a woman towing on my own. No, not related but praise when it is due.

                    have just seen this Romini in the M4 outside Reading. Really cute.

                      The picture above is my now beloved Arfurvan. I have to say I didn’t have to pay the asking price cos work needs to be done but to me it is priceless as I now have a van I can tow with a Micra. Freedom to Rome. Wendy S.

                        Just an idle question, out of curiosity. It seems to me that the body cannot deteriorate unless the skin is cracked, water gets in and freezes, or it is involved in an accident. Therefore the only part of a Romini to deteriorate will be the chassis. Can you lift the body off and treat the chassis? I was working on a similar aged / partly fibreglass Cotswold caravan recently and it seemed to me that you couldn't take the body off to for example hot dip galvanize the chassis if you wanted to. You would have (in the case of the Cotswold) to dismantle it in the opposite order that it would have been assembled and you would have to assume that the furniture would come out first, then the roof would come off, then the sides, then the floor. The floor was regular tongue-and-groove pine floorboards. The sides were aluminium, the front, back and roof were fibreglass.

                          From what I have read they are more like the pods integral GRP floor too, moulded in 2 halves bonded together - see this one a guy mounted on a Defender - a bit of a shame in my opinion as it may have destroyed a nice little Romni and (in my opinion) fitting a demountable pod may have been a better option.

                            What a waste of a Romini! I can't imagine any reason for actually wanting to do that. I can only hope that the Romini chassis was rotted beyond repair so sticking it on the back of a truck was the only option left.
