The British brand Lunar has been involved in caravanning for over 45 years. The company started with the production of caravans, but in our opinion today it is much more distinguished on the market by interesting models of motorhomes .

Lunar can surprise, which he proved a few years ago by launching a motorhome based on the Nissan NV200 Combi (we wrote about it here: Lunar Vacanza - for holidays and shopping ). This is one of the few, if not the only example in the world, of using this model in caravanning on a large scale.

Nissan is still part of the company's offer, but now it is more a supplement than a foundation. The basis of the offer, apart from caravans, are today Landstar models, for which the Mercedes Sprinter is the basis.

Comfort for two

Customers can choose from four basic Landstar variants, with their starting prices slightly different. All models have the same dimensions. Total length is 712 cm, width 199 cm. Inside, without bending your legs, a person measuring 192 centimeters will fit, which is an exceptionally good result.

The maximum permissible gross weight of each Landstar in the basic version is 3.5 tons. The maximum payload, however, does not knock competitors to the shoulder - it is 250 kg, despite the fact that the Lunar boasts continuous weight reduction of individual components and a body with a honeycomb structure.

Unlike many European manufacturers, Lunar does not try to cram as many sleeping places into its cars as possible. Only two adults can stay in each Landstar. If parents want to take their children with them, they must sleep with them.


Various interiors

Individual models differ from each other in the layout of the interior. Landstar EWS has a bathroom (with a rounded shower tray) in the rear part of the vehicle, while the main part of the Mercedes is occupied by folding beds on both sides of the motorhome. Between the seating area and the relatively spacious bathroom, there is space for a kitchenette.

For comparison, in the RL version, the center of the motorhome is occupied by a kitchenette with a large countertop, and on the opposite side there is a bathroom with a shower tray (almost square this time). The beds went to the back of the cabin.

Nice standard

For users, the parameters on which daily travel and functioning during a stopover depend are no less important. It is worth knowing that the fuel tank can fit 75 liters of diesel fuel, the fresh water tank can hold 70 liters, and the sewage tank has a capacity of 35 liters. 95 years

In the equipment, let's pay attention to the kitchen, which in the cheaper version will have 3 gas burners, and in the more expensive version also the fourth electric burner, oven and grill. Already as standard, however, we will receive a microwave oven and an extended worktop, as well as heating and a Truma water heater.

Elements such as solar panels require the selection of a higher version, but it is worth noting that Mercedes, as can be expected from this brand, is already equipped "richly" as standard. In the basic version, we will get elements such as cruise control, hands-free kit with Bluetooth system, electric windows, on-board computer and alloy wheels.

The car is covered by a 3-year warranty, regardless of mileage. Prices of Lunar motorhomes start from 52,000. pounds.
