The Swift Eccles Moonstone has a traditional four berth caravan layout with an end shower room, nearside kitchen with a dinette opposite and a lounge area with a centre chest of drawers. It has the necessary traditional equipment but inside, a contemporary interior style takes over.
The shower room is accessed via a domestic style white door; the basin is ahead with a back-lit mirror, with storage around and under it. The shower tray, to the right is rectangular with a bi-fold door and a hanging rail whilst the wardrobe set to the left of the basin has an interior light. Natural light comes from the roof light and the opaque window. The kitchen has the new Aspire dual fuel hob, with oven and grill supplemented by a microwave oven. The round sink is stylish granite effect set in a cool white worktop with a snazzy acrylic back-lit splash back. Living and dining and sleeping become a flexible layout, dependent on whether it’s used by a couple or a family of four. Eating at the side dinette is a practical option for a couple that want to leave the front end made up as a sleeping area, or convert the dinette to a sleeping area for the youngsters. The soft furnishing scheme is bold; put ruby red with dark chocolate and you have the idea. There are four different wall boards used, three of which are also non-traditional but despite the interior’s size, it’s not at all in your face. Carpets are removable and there is a front rug, so you could take out the carpets and just use the deep pile rug. With low energy LED lighting throughout as down lighters, over locker lights, task lights and low level night lights and an Ecocamel water saving shower hose and head, Moonstone is doing its bit to help the planet.
Definitely a caravan for those who want to move away from a traditional interior design scheme as it oozes modern, contemporary caravan interior décor. It’s like Marmite! I advise that you add the extra security feature like the optional AL-KO Secure wheel lock and this will reflect in the cost to insure this caravan. Cost to insure: £231* In summary:
