Lunar Lexon 570 Exterior
The Lunar Lexon 570 made it’s début at the Boat and Caravan Show at NEC in February. Liz and Dave King checked it out.
Directly aimed at the family market it’s an interesting layout and that’s why it appealed to us; a six-berth caravan with a fixed double bed. The aluminium framed bed does lift up allowing storage underneath with external access, but it does have the corner of the under bed area cut off and this gives more space in the caravan. By that we mean you are less likely to hit your toes on the edge of the bed as you exit the shower room!

The wood colour is chestnut and this, we thought, blended very nicely with soft furnishing scheme in a coffee and cream corded pattern, which we thought, was practical for family use and the neutral coloured drop-in carpets.
The side kitchen has a linen finish stainless steel sink and smoked glass lid, a four burner hob, oven, grill and 700w microwave. The Thetford electronic fridge with LED display is a good size and certainly means you wouldn’t have to shop everyday even if you’re feeding a hungry family.
The shower room looks clean and had shelves for the family-sized bottles of shower gel and shampoo but there was something about the mirror that didn’t appeal to us.

We can’t really envisage a family and four children using this caravan, and indeed the beds are a tad small for growing lads and lasses, but for a couple with two small kids, then this is worth putting on your short-list.
This is a high specification mid-range caravan, with Clubman style lockers; hence the enhanced headroom and Clubman rear panel and one of the first six-berth fixed bed single axle caravans.
