    Hello from us

    Hi, We have just bought our first Romahome Duo 1999 reg. Just finding our way around it, can't quite believe how Island Plastics can pack so much in such a small space! The van is in very good condition for it's age but we are considering having new upholstery, i wonder if anyone has any information on what we might expect to pay? We have already picked up some very useful tips from the forum, it seem a very friendly site.

      Don't think I'm giving away a trade secret, believe Romahome deal with these people nowadays.
      Probably not a cheap option, but would look brand new afterwards.

          Hello and welcome to the forum! I hope you manage to get your new upholstery done eventually! In the meanwhile, how about some nice throws? You can get some really big ones at Aldi, Lidl and B&M stores, they don't cost an awful lot and look really good.

            Hi jayjay,

            Thanks for the suggestion,we have just got one quote for the upholstery and think it will have to wait awhile!
            May well try the throws in the meantime.
            Just got back from a drive down to the local nature reserve for a brew! our very first one prepared on the hob, with water straight out of a whistling kettle pure bliss, I know this may seem a strange thing to get excited about,but it was a really big deal for a couple of rookies

            Thanks all

                  Hi Monty's Dad welcome to the forum, you did better than me for a cuppa, the first one I made was parked in my drive, love it :so happy:
                  now moved on to a bigger motorhome from my old C15 that I loved.
                  Happy camping.

                    waving back! That's what I did when I got my first campervan!! I took the dog to a local lake, had a walk around, then went back for a cuppa. Bliss. As long as you can boil a kettle, you can do anything. Next it will be a pot noodle or a cup a soup, before long - a four-course meal!

                      Many thanks everyone, will look into all the suggestions for loose covers and throws before we go down the re upholstery route.
                      off now to find a suitable pan for our next venture to boil an egg and make toast soldiers! a brilliant start to my retirement

                        Hello Montys dad. Is it just the cushions you need recovering ? Its not that difficult a job if you have a sewing machine or, advertise locally for someone to do them for you. If you supply the fabric I am sure you could find someone to sew them for you. Welcome to the friendly forum bye the way.

                          Hi Pendel,

                          Thanks for the suggestion, and welcome it's not that the interior is bad in any way, we just want to put our own stamp on it.
                          Maybe a mix of cushion covers and throws will be the answer.

                          On an entirely new subject does anyone know at what milage does the Cam belt requires changing? Our 1999 reg Duo has done 31,400 miles to date.

                          Regards
                          Monty's Dad

                            Cambelt change

                            50,000 at the outside,if you have just got the van do it now,belts can crack easily and the risk isnt worth it.
