    Hi from the Mini man

    Hi everybody.
    I've only just joined and I thought I'd better introduce myself. I live in West Berkshire and I've been caravaning for about 20 years. Although it's not a small motorhome, I've just bought myself a Romini to tow behind a classic Mini Mayfair.
    We took the Romini away a couple of times and have had a great time in it. When its behind my Mini it's like driving a 38ton truck loaded to 45tons! it only just comes within the maximum permissible towing weight but as long as I don't load it with to much kit it'll be o.k.
    I was looking for one of these for a while and found this one in Belgium, within 48 hours of seeing the add, it was outside my place. It's in quite good nick, the only thing I'll have to change is the mains outlets as all the sockets are european. The stripes were missing and I've put all new ones on to match the car.
    Hope that I can be a useful member to the forum.

            Great looking Romini, bet you have fun camping with it. Do you get much interest in it from other campers on the sites?
            You'll find everyone here really friendly and happy to share experiences and knowledge.

              Hi peter!

              I nearly had to go abroad to get the caravan I wanted - it's a dutch Kip! Ended up paying less here (but still a lot of money for what I actually got!), for a very inferior 'shed' that I had to do up. I would have been better off going to Holland and getting one in the same way you have. I think the continent have far stricter rules about general caravan safety than we do here, I know in Holland they have to have a sort of 'MOT' each year to prove they are safe to use!

              Mine also had continental two pin sockets. I had a mobile engineer out to put in a new consumer unit and three-pin plugs, and also a fridge. He checked the electrics (which were live all the time) and gas and he also had to replace all the gas pipes as they had perished. Mine was a death trap when I bought it goodness knows what might have happened if I had taken the seller at his word and gone camping in it as it stood!

              Have to say, after spending a lot more money over the past couple of years, it's now all good.

                  Hey! Why am I being picked out?
                  There are getting to be quite a gang of Romini owners on here. Mostly, going by the pictures, with better specimens than me. Not that I do not enjoy mine immensely.
                  Maybe, one day, mine will not be the only Romini at a meet?
                  Welcome Pete. Hope we meet up sometime. Though I live a long way from you.

                      I love those Eriba's if ever we went back to tin tent tugging we would probably get one of those.

                        Now that is what I call a "pretty" Mini. Along with the Riley badged one.
                        I have enjoyed ownership of three ordinary Minis (not that I ever considered Minis "ordinary"). One from brand new, which at Easter 1960 stopped everyone in their tracks and several times nearly caused accidents as other motorists ogled it.
