    Hello Everyone

    Hi, Just thought I'd say 'hello' to those who use this site. I'm a new Romahome user though have had other motorhomes in the past, but never anything this small. Should prove interesting .... I travel around now on my own so it will be great to meet up with some fellow 'homers, especially users of small ones. I've been spoiled for space in the past so this will be a whole new experience. I have a 2ltr hdi Berlingo Duo, getting on now but looks like it will last at least another ten years or so. I look forward to meeting many of you in the future. 'Til then, 'au revoir'. (Looks good but my French really is rubbish !!). Cheers.

      Welcome to the forum Romalone, you'll soon get used to using a smaller van, you just have to be more disciplined and get rid of all that stuff that you never use.

      We have lots of people who travel and camp on their own and we also have meets happening from time to time, in fact there is one at Polstead soon, see "Fancy Meeting Up" section.

          Hi. Welcome to the forum.

          Ok, you may not have the luxury of much space inside the van but the upside is a far greater degree of flexibility, not to mention more miles to the gallon and there more potential for adventures.

          Safe travels. Come along to a meet and compare notes about living inside a tiny space!
          Carpe diem! :)

                Hi there Romalone,
                I'm back to the forum after a long absence and just in the process of buying my second Romahome. I sold my Trigano Tribute last year and though I miss it, I can't wait to rediscover the practicality and economy of a Romahome. I've done PLENTY of solo camping/motorhoming/cycletouring (actually, my little terrier is my constant companion) - a wonderful lifestyle. I too am looking forward to meeting the good folks on the forum at a meet one of these days soon - they've been so generous with time and advice!
                Good luck!

                      Hi, Rick, I'm really sorry to say that I know very little of the Kent coast, even less its camp sites. Although I've lived in Kent for the best part of my life I love Cornwall, the Lake District and Scotland. The north Kent coast I don't find appealing at all. The Isle of Sheppey I find depressing and Margate through to Ramsgate, too commercialised. Sandwich has a very interesting history but, for me at least, is worthy more of a day trip than a 'stay'. Quaint but can be bleak. Deal to Dover is OK but not particularly beachy, again, loads of history and castles etc to visit, if thats your thing. Folkestone isn't too bad and does have a very pretty camp site. Check out 'Little Switzerland' on Google. Small, well kept and fabulous views. Close to a nice beach, the town and The Leas. Theres a super 'Lower Road', the name of which escapes me, which sometimes is fully open and other times demands the payment of a small toll if driving through. It makes for a lovely walk on a fine day. It leads through to Sandgate which once was a thriving antique hamlet. Its lost its appeal these days and getting a little drab. Hythe is quite nice which then leads through to the Romney Marsh, with Dymchurch, New Romney and Dungeness, (nobody goes to Dungeness without stopping off at 'The Pilot' pub for what may argueably be the best Fish and Chips of the Universe ......!! Finally Lydd beckons with its own unique history before the coast road continues on to East Sussex and Rye. Within the coastal boundary, however, are hundreds of wonderful places to see and visit, too many to mention. All this means you have to come and stay awhile and discover the things that you like. Do let me know when and where you are and I'll try and meet up if you wish it. I can at least point you in the direction of the places I find appealing, for whatever diverse reason. Have a great holiday.

                        Hello, Jac, I wish you luck in locating your Duo, as a seasoned Romahomer I'm sure you'll find a nice one. I'm particularly interested in your comments regarding cycling. Did you carry one on your previous Romahome? If so, where? I'd like to carry one but would not wish to carry it inside but not sure where it might stow outside. Perhaps this is a subject for a different part of the Forum. I'll search it out. Look forward to meeting you and many others some time in the future. Best wishes.

                          Thanks very much. Hopefully united with a previously loved Duo this weekend.
                          Quick answer to your cycling question: I had a Brompton folding bike in a padded stowage bag for travel in the 'van. I now have a Dahon folding touring bike which isn't as compact as the Brompton but may live strapped to the passenger seat if it won't stow in the luton. Other than that, Romahomes don't seem to lend themselves to things like tow bars and bike carriers. I'm sure others will come along with their solutions.
                          All the best!

                            Romalone, Thanks for all the useful info. We are still undecided on a destination but if we head your way we will let you know.
                            We have taken two bikes in the back of Brian. Both full sized. When they are not in use we tether them together and leave them on our pitch. We have looked at Folders but they are too expensive and My wife prefers her current bike anyway.
