Is This the World’s Smallest Production Motorhome?

Romahome R10

Romahome is well-known for its high quality, small van conversions – but its latest model pushes the boundaries even by their standards.

The Citroen Nemo recently won the award for International Van of the Year and this pint-sized workhorse has now formed the basis for Romahome’s latest conversion – the R10.

Designed to sleep 1 but still fully-featured – with electrics, 2-burner hob, cupboards, sink, Porta Potti and optional blown-air heating – the R10 is a real marvel of the converter’s art. It also comes with solar panels as standard – helping keep the leisure battery topped up and the CO2 emissions down.

Romahome Managing Director Brian Bailey says that “Regular customer feedback showed that many people who buy our R20 conversions actually only wanted a single berth motorhome but still a vehicle that they could use for everyday transport. As a result, we created the R10. It has two seats in the front cab plus another sideways seat in the rear living area for which a seatbelt is available as an option.”

The R10 certainly fits the bill – it is no bigger than many cars and with an overall height of 6′ 3″ will still fit under some car park height barriers – unlike most motorhome conversions. This makes it ideally suited as an everyday vehicle as well as a 1-person camper for trips away.

The price has been kept to scale, too, with new Romahome R10s starting at just £18,995 – competitive for a professional van conversion.

The R10 will be launched at this month’s International Caravan and Motorhome 2008 show at the Birmingham NEC. To learn more in the meantime, visit Romahome’s website for full details of all of their models (the R10 isn’t there yet but doubtless will be added soon).

  • I have been searching for this Isle of Wight Converter for ages since I saw a little Berlingo? possibly ‘Surf’ conversion which the owner said did 60mpg!! I was told they had stopped producing motorhomes.
    Does anyone have any more details ie website or where a s/h of the above?

    • Hi Sandy,

      I think the company you are after is Romahome ( They’re based on the Isle of Wight and have a great reputation for compact conversions. They are still very much in business, too. Hope this helps.

        Unfortunately, they have now gone out of business. There are other small campervan converters out there, but the build quality can be poor. Hopefully, things will improve?

        • Hi Derek, thanks for your comment. I didn’t realise that Romahome had gone out of business – a real shame. Their conversions were always well thought out and good quality, in my experience.
