    I have just had my first trip away in my second hand, low mileage Lunar Vacanza and had a bit of a learning curve! The handbrake is a conventional type and with it being on the floor between the front seats you can only rotate the seats by releasing the handbrake. Luckily I was on fairly soft ground in a festival field but still put the vehicle in gear as a precaution. Once the seats are rotated through 180 degrees the handbrake can be reapplied but cannot be applied when the seats are in the sleeping position. There is nothing mentioned about this in the handbook.
    The inflatable bed is both a blessing and a curse! It is as hard as an ironing board when inflated to the lower recommended pressure but a quick visit to a store to find a fleece/memory foam mattress topper made for a more comfortable second and third nights sleep.
    Fuel consumption is amazing. I filled up on the 22nd June and still have 85 miles worth of fuel left! I will work out the mpg when I next top up.
    Oh, and it’s cute, getting a lot of attention from even the VW diehards.

    User payload of 84kg? Surely a misprint. The wife and I weigh twice that much. Supposed to be a four seater. If the payload only allows you to put one person with empty pockets in it, how small are the passengers?

    • Liz @ Caravan Guard says:

      Hi Paul, thanks for spotting that. I’ve amended to a payload of 322kg. This is an old review and not sure how readily available this vehicle is as there are no details on the Lunar website.

    having been launched in 2013 – any idea on the residual value of the lunar campercar. Thinking of purchasing one but not sure if its a good buy versus the VW?

    • Lucie @ Caravan Guard says:

      Hi Gaynor,

      I’ll certainly try and find out for you – I will let you know once I have an answer.

      Kind regards,

      Hi Gaynor,

      I’ve heard back from Lunar. They’ve advised that you contact one of their Camper Car retailers, Richard Baldwins on 01422 364222, as they’d be the best person to help you.

      Many thanks

    would be interested to view vacanza where would this be possible?

    • Craig says:

      Hi Mr Leng
      I have checked the Lunar website and it lists the following dealers as stockists – we’d recommend calling ahead before you visit to ensure they have a vehicle in stock for you to see.
      Brownhills Newark
      Don Amott Hilton, Near Derby
      Hayes Motorhomes Birmingham

      No doubt the Vacanza will be on display at shows throughout the year. Lunar have listed the shows they will be attending on their website. That said the Cottingham show is usually for caravans only.

      Kind regards
      Caravan Guard

    Why in a van of this kind brand new worth £30,000 can you quote £257 to insure with you when my quote for a Berlingo wheelhome worth £8495 you quoted £400 ???????

    • Craig says:

      It’s hard to say without knowing your individual circumstances but it will depend on a number of factors, not least the postcode of where you keep your motorhome when it’s not in use. Prices do change also. If you would like to email me your telephone number, postcode and renewal date to [email protected] we could take a look at this in more detail for you at renewal time.
      Kind regards

    Looks like a good, practical, daily use vehicle

    I wouldnt trust anything from Lunar. I owned a Lunar Roadstar and had nothing but trouble with it. Stick to caravans Lunar. Their customer service is also non existent.
