    Hello :)

    Saying hi to all as I've just joined the forum and the Roma club as I recently bought a 1988 demountable pod on a 2003 diahatsu hijet. I haven't been able to access the Roma forum chat but maybe my phone at fault. I love the van who I've named Amy due to the letters of the numberplate

              Hi TrishAmy I used to have a HiJet with demountable Pod a lovely little van, which if you treat it well will take you almost any place. Last Summer we Sandra and I plus one large dog Bertie went away for 4 weeks - Scotland and the NC 500 we live in Cornwall so started with Lands End and the Lizard.
              Can you go on the Romahome Chat board - and go this sticky put up the details of your pod including the number on the door frame https://community.smallmotorhome.co....ter-of-numbers

              Is yours an older pod or the late Mk5 double skin model? Double skin has an external gas locker - nearside rear and a water tank.
              If you have not got a handbook you will find both the pod handbook and the HiJet workshop manual on the downloads http://www.smallmotorhome.co.uk/downloads.html
              Look forward to seeing pictures soon.

                    Hi thank you for the info it's a later one as the gas locker is where you said. I'm needing the roof vent replacing as the previous owner broke it. There's a mobile caravan doctor in Trowbridge that has asked me to measure the aperture. I measured it as 13 inches square does this sound right? I measured it from inside the pod. It's a fiamma one that's there but I can't find one online that's 330mm they seem to be 280 or 400.

                    I'll post the number from the door frame now.

                    Thank you for all the welcomes I absolutely love the van and will post photos when I work out how

                            Hi Trish - no you will not find it online - it is an out of date size. The solution is to fit a Mini Heiki
                            Which is not difficult to do - I did my own Tigerfish has done his own and documented the process. Take a look at this thread
                            https://community.smallmotorhome.co....name-yet/page2
                            If you look carefully a MiniHeiki is not too expensive - I am about to replace the same Fiamma fitted to my Suntrekker (another demountable built by Romahome under the Island plastics name and slightly bigger).
                            On ebay a Mini Heiki https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SEITZ-MOT...UAAOSwFmxafWaP
                            That comes complete with blackout and insect screens.
