    The rear door is an older style standard caravan rear door. What is wrong with yours? A caravan beaker may be able to help.

    Hi Lizzie,

    I'm not entirely sure, but I don't think the back door was unique to Romahome. I'm sure of I've seen them on something else. However, I could be wrong.

    Trying putting 'caravan rear stable door' in the search box on eBay and all sorts of things come up. Might be worth contacting the vendors for dimensions etc.

    Good secondhand and occasionally new doors do turn up on eBay every now and again. There is a brand new bonnet on there at the moment.

    HI Lizzie! I hope you find something. I think your best bet is to keep scouring Ebay and breakers for parts.

    Hi, it's great to be back. I've finally got time to restore my beautiful C15 Romahome. The main problem seems to be replacing the back door. I also need to address the rust on the front doors. I've searched a lot for a back door but with no luck. Any ideas? Thanks Lizzie

    Yes I did.



    found a lovely 'body' man who has been working on it inbetween jobs. bonnets on, wings are fixed and bits of rust cleared from bottom of doors. Just the window to sort out now.
    Getting excited now!!

    Some good advice here.

    As Rob asked, Did you manage to get the welding done?

    Hmm. Sounds like the old Micra that I inherited from my kids, which keeps passing the MOT, much to my surprise! The driver's window stays up...as long as you don't touch the handle. Is fun paying at the toll bridge and going in / out of car-parks as I need to open the door to reach the ticket thingy. The things you learn to live with when driving old cars!

    Hi Cath.
    I think the channels are still available from Citroen, part number 7920071954, just check that is the drivers side number it's the only one I have on my records.

    Regarding the sills, car body shops often modify and fit replacement sills from other cars to older and classic cars when the originals are not available. They even make them from scratch sometimes.

    When we had our C15 I joined a local nightschool class and we made new sections to replace the bodywork at the bottom corners of the windscreen. They were complex shapes with curves in 2 directions and had to be made in 2 pieces but they had a machine for bending sheet steel. Sometimes it just needs a bit of ingenuity.

    If you could find an ordinary C15 van, it might provide some of the bits. I had an argument with an obstinate sheep a few months ago -sheep won - was totally unhurt but broke my indicator lights. I was lucky in that someone local was just scrapping a C15 van of similar age to my romahome so managed to replace the lights/plastic cover easily. Just wish I had had space to keep the rest of the van - there might have been all sorts of useful bits on it.

    Thanks to all for your comments. I have managed to locate a Bonnet for a C15 van, which we are assuming will be the same, from Auto Panels Castleford but they only had sills for a 4 door and I will have to contact my bodyman to see if they will do the job or not.
    Thanks again for the responses. Cath (RomaToy)

    It's only a couple of months since I last enquired about body panels from Autopanels of Castleford and they still had some left.

    email: [email protected] , tel: 01977 559574

    Remember though to be specific that you are enquiring about the van, not the car. Some panels are the same, others are not.

    e.t.a. I think the sills were one item they had which were different. They're longer in the car than in the van. It's worth checking though to see if they can be cut down.
