    Love it!

    Hi. I've finally bought a very old, but beautiful, Romahome C15. After joining the C&CC I ventured out into the (near) wilderness armed with a young grandchild and tons of bedding. We visited four different sites in as many nights and had a brilliant time. The best bit for me was standing at the open door, cooking breakfast, against a beautiful backdrop of open fields and rolling hills. As it is only a two seater, I can only take one of my six grandchildren at a time (great!) allowing us to spend quality time together. It's the dog's turn next and, as he is very large, I have bought an awning for him to sleep in - we won't both fit in the Romahome bed! I have done a mini tour of the Cotswolds and plan to venture further afield to Norfolk in October. I can't wait to set off again - especially as my husband thinks I'm mad and refuses to come along with me, all the more room for me and no housework!!PS. I passed another Romahome C15 on the way to the Forest of Dean, the driver and passenger were energetically waving to us, so I'd like to say 'Hello!'

    Hello Shaynes & welcome. It sounds like you are having a great time in your little camper. We are in Essex and will be at the Polestead c&cc site in Suffolk on Sept 3&4 so if you near, then your welcome to come along.

      Thank you.

      Thank you Pendel! I am arranging hubbie's birthday party that weekend, but hope to meet up with fellow members in the future. I like to travel alone and have the freedom to do as I please - but it's nice to know that there are others around for a drink and chat when on site together, I am looking forward to that.

          Thank you Di. It's lovely to take the grandchildren - but I'm also looking forward to going out more on my own - lazy days mooching around, walking, sleeping and reading - bliss!!

              Hi Ian, thanks for info. I have printed off the Roma Club application form and will be sending it off shortly. It seems that there are quite a few 'empty nesters' who suddenly have the freedom to go off on little adventures. I can't believe how excited I get when browsing through the C&CC book, looking for new places to stay! Something else I have discovered is how useful my little Roma is when visiting events or festivals as I did recently; instead of spending a fortune on fast food vans, I was able to sit and have a cup of tea, cook a lunch and have a quick nap during a shower of rain before returning to the festival for the rest of the afternoon, brilliant!

                The Roma is amazing , so versatile. We use ours as a day van when we are out metal detecting. You cant beat a fresh made cuppa & slice of cake. Its especially pleasing when your travelling and get stuck in slow moving traffic. You can pull into a layby & have a brew. The looks on passing motists faces as they see you standing there with a hot cuppa in your hand is classic

                  Absolutely! We had a phone call from someone who 'hoped it was a convenient time to ring' - very polite! They sounded a tad surprised when I replied in the affirmative, adding that we were in a layby cooking up some pasta to eat....And very nice it was too!

                  My neighbours have started comenting how I keep disappearing for days at a time, on my own...tee hee. There are times when it is lovely to wander independently - wherever and whenever you want. Hey, there's a lot to be said for this retirement thing! As long as there's enough money for the diesel and any camping fees.
