    Demountable Romahome Legs

    Hi, Im new to the forum, though I've been looking for a while,

    anyway Im currently restoring a romahome pod from a bedford rascal, and Im trying to find some of the jack/lifting legs
    I know this question comes up a bit on here and they are almost impossible to find but I hope with some help from you guys on here I can get a set made.

    Ive just had the square brackets made for the legs to fit into so they should be with me next week.
    If possible if anyone has some pictures of the legs would you be able to post them here, and if possible some basic messurements.

    I know this is alot to ask on my first post but if everything works out and I can get a set made, then I can post some pictures and messurments on here for everyone to use.

    Regards, Daz

    Hi Daz, and welcome. I'm afraid I can't answer your question as I have a Talbot Express. However, you won't have to wait long before someone [or two or three] comes along who can help. Members here are really friendly and only too eager to help others with their queries, as I'm sure you'll soon see.

    Good luck with your restoration, we'll look forward to seeing your photos in due course.

              the brackets have landed so will get a few pics taken and mesurements and post them here later tonight or tomorrow morning, they might not be 100% accurate as I only had two extremely rusty brackets to work with but think they are as good as

                I read somewhere that someone had modified a pair of Landrover type hi-lift jacks.

                      Thr pair i had made up are approx 6" longer and this helps a lot when dismounting, as the originals were almost on the upper limit. !

                        so the ones you made are they made the same as in minimouse's pictures but 6" longer?
                        when you say the originals were on the upper limit is the because your pods are mounted to your Super-Carry (going by your avatar). if I am correct these are higher then the Bedford Rascal plus with the cab being higher the pods need to sit on a support of some sort, but please correct me if I am wrong.
                        just need to be sure because if im going to make some I mights well improve on the design if I can..

                        thanks for the replys

                          I think the flat bed of the older Bedford Rascal / Suzuki Super Carry or Honda Hi-Jet were about the same height as my later Carry, but when you pull out from or reverse back under, unless you are on perfectly level ground the camper pod can sometimes bottom out.
                          I then had to get out and jack the legs up a bit to make clearance.
                          As i was having the legs fabricated, i asked the blacksmith to make them 6" longer. Now i just Jack them up so i know i am easily clear. :so happy:

                          To have the legs made I bought a length of 12mm threaded rod and eight 12mm nuts from the builders merchants.

                          He welded one nut to the top end on one of the legs inside bottom 1" box section. A second nut on to the end of a 12" peice of the threaded rod about 1 1/2" down from the end.

                          A third nut was drilled out to allow the 12mm rod to pass through, and this drilled nut was welded to the top of the 1 1/4" outside section.

                          The threaded rod was passed through the top box section and out through the drilled out nut. The fourth nut this was screwed onto the end of the rod and welded in place,

                          When the bottom 1" box section is inserted into the 1 1/4" outer top section the threaded rod meets the nut welded to the top of the lower section, the threaded rod is rotated to screw it in allowing the leg to lower and one section to pass inside the other.

                          When inserted into the jacking point on the camper pod the process is reversed and the two pieces of the leg slides apart raising the legs.

                          Hope this helps

                            Romahome Legs UPDATE

                            right, sorry for the delay Christmas is coming up so little time to spend on the Bedford Roma

                            I’ve got a quick drawing here if Minimouse would be so kind to confirm the measurements for me


                            a couple of questions around the measurements of the legs.

                            1, is it possible to remove the bottom part of the leg completely (winding it out) and measuring the total length.

                            2, what is the length of the diagonal supporting bar on the top part of the leg (that’s mounted 2" from top) to get this measurement please measure the outside top length of the bar

                            3, TO ADMIN or forum owner, once I do get these legs made I will have a final accrete diagram drawn up, and wanted to ask would you be able to put it up somewhere for others to download.


                            Thanks, Daz
