    Nu-Venture Romahome



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Hi, has anyone ever owned one of these?
    Nu Venture Rio 1998 - 2 Berth Motorhome - Romahome - Campervan - Camper | eBay

    We have a Daihatsu Romahome at present and whilst we love it for its small size, it will fit on our drive which is a necessity where we live and it can be used around town as it is not much bigger than a car, the lack of a toilet and its instability in windy weather, are downsides.

    Just thought this looked like a good next step up.
    Thanks for any info.

    NU-Venture and Romahome are two different companys, we have enjoyed several Romahomes Nu- Venture does not have the same reliability as them it may be an older van with a newer conversion but seems cheap you need a good look at this and a test drive.

    Having owned an older one, and still do, all of what Alf has said is worth considering but, having said that, it does look in remarkably good condition..........as did mine until I had to totally rebuild it

    Check the mot history it isn't fantastic condition as the advert describes, sorry if I have put a damper on it but you are best knowing that it needs work now than after you spend your hard earned.

    Indeed. The last MOT list the following Advisories;

    Oil leak ()
    Exhaust has a minor leak of exhaust gases centre (7.1.2)
    Exhaust has a minor leak of exhaust gases back box holed and tailpipe missing (7.1.2)
    front brake disc worn, pitted or scored, but not seriously weakened (3.5.1i)
    all suspension components corroded
    fuel tank strap/cage corroded
    OSR light lense smashed

    I would want to know that all of these issues have been addressed.
    God bless Colonel Sanders. Marvellous man!

    Totally agree with Bazz on this one. With all the problems that I've had with mine I still would consider buying one the same as you are looking at, as well as the one that Bazz is using.

    I'd go along with that Rae. I've not been in your van (only attached stuff to it), but Bazz's is surprisingly spacious.

    Getting back to the van, mine is very similar internally to the one in question except I don't have the window above the galley and, obviously, a tad smaller.

    New venture

    Hi, we have just swopped are ( surf ) by new venture, same as the rio but on a Citroen Berlingo base with the older 1800 deisel engine an 05 Reg.Later models with the 1600 engine are better. A great little van it would fit in any car space, but it struggled on long hills on the motorway. We had it for five years. The reason for changing we bought two fold up bikes which would only fit up the inside. A bit of a pain moving in and out. The van was a very useful every day vehicle with a loo.
