      looks very nice,if its mechanically sound and rust free I would give it serious consideration.

        Engineers report including that the base vehicle is suitable for the load that it is accrying, (Romahome built on 800kg vans and 765kg chassis cabs but most vans on the market are 600kg vans) and agreement in writing that they know exactly what they are insuring (to prevent future problems) then there would not be a problem. One advantage would be power steering.

          Thanks

          Thanks,
          I have emailed the seller to confirm if there is an engineers report regarding fitting of the old body to a newer chassis,
          Seems from the spec that it is a tidy setup,
          If they reply with there location, I may take a little shuftie as they say,
          It looks like a clean tidy inside, and worthy of a following up!,
          Thanks for the replies
          I was aware that there were quite a few dodgy rebodies around in another posting,
          Regards

            The reason I say about the engineers report is that I once built a motorcaravan and needed an engineers report and I also once fitted windows and a back seat into a van (using the manufacturers parts) and the insurance required an engineers report.

                Do you know who did the conversion ? Broadlands liesure have a good reputation, even Romahome know they do a good job.
                The problem with rebodied Roma's seems to be it is difficult to know how good the work is until it's too late.
                A 2003 C15 done properly with a Roma back should last for 10 years+ if looked after. Just make sure your insurance company will accept it, as said before.

                  I have seen several really well done rebodies,it means a good vehicle and a lovely camper back.
                  As long as the insurance are happy,go for it.

                    Dont see any problem as long as you know what you are buying.

                    The only reason that I flag up rebodies advertised on ebay is that the sellers dont tell you that it is a rebody they try to pass it of as a romahome the age of the reg plate on the van. I have contacted a number of them over a period of time posing as a possible buyer only to be told it is a 2003 or a 2004 romahome, I find that dihonest especially from a trader. I know that some people might be selling a vehicle that they have bought in good faith but we must all remember the phrase buyer beware.
