The Lunar Lexon 570 caravan is a new model for 2016 and has the popular fixed-twin-bed layout, with an end washroom, centre kitchen and a living area with parallel seating and chest of drawers.
The highlight of the living area has to be the new “Skyview” roof light, measuring 440mm x 1400mm, with LED on its periphery, taking a panoramic view to a new meaning. Add in the over locker lighting and you can change the lighting according to your mood.
With parallel seating, a chest of drawers with a pull-out table and a freestanding table the layout is flexible for living, dining and sleeping.
The fabrics and wood colour are up-to-date with Montana Oak locker doors with cream gloss panels and the standard upholstery scheme is called Baptiste – bold curtains and scatter cushions complemented by self-patterned grey seat cushions and back rests.
Lighting throughout this tourer is LED with new feature cube-like corner wall lights in the living area.
The shower room’s décor scheme is white and cream with a charcoal grey feature, hosting the ceiling mounted light in the shower. We liked the hinged one-piece door with tiny drain holes on the lower edge, allowing water to run down the door to the drain and straight back into the shower tray. How very practical!
The new-style oval top mounted basin, with a back-lit mirror is a contemporary touch and there’s a cupboard under it. There’s also one blown air heating vent for the Truma 6KW ISOTHERM heating system.
The twin beds each have a padded headboard, over-bed lockers, shelves over the bed, storage under each bunk, (one side is accessible from the exterior). The wardrobe is at the foot of the nearside bed and has drawers under it.
The kitchen is equipped with the Thetford Aspire 2 dual fuel cooker and has a round stainless steel sink with a freestanding drainer and chopping board. Glossy cream overhead lockers and a self-patterned splashback lighten the look, and there’s a worktop extension flap. The fridge sits under the worktop. It’s all very practical and modern.
Verdict: The Lunar Lexon 570 has a warm and cosy ambience, with a modern-day air, good use of space and lighting. We suggest that you add optional extra security features like the AL-KO Secure Wheel Lock as this may reflect favourably in the cost to insure this caravan.
