In today’s Practical Caravan review its the Lunar Lexon 420. This is a compact 2 berth caravan that weighs fully laden around 1,200 kg, which means your average hatchback should be able to tow it. In terms of price point new in 2012 this van was available at around £15,000.
The objective for Lunar with the Lexon was to provide a shorter lower weight van without too many internal compromises. The lounge has two long sofas which can be used as single beds, or they can be made into a large double. The cushions and curtains in the Lunar Lexon are more conservative than you will see in many of their rivals but I for one quite like them.
The kitchen has to be fairly compact but you are still getting the four burner hob, grill, oven and microwave you would expect with a decent sized fridge. The one thing I’m not sure about is the black round sink, I generally prefer a square stainless steel sink. In 2012 its was the time that many of the manufacturers including Lexon started to include LED lighting more in caravans, and it makes perfect sense. You now get a good amount of light from the LED’s and there is very little load on the battery.
In terms of saving space on the Lunar Lexon compared to previous models this has been done by moving the wardrobe out of the washroom and into the living space. The washroom in the Lexon is a very nice space with the toilet to the left, sink in the centre and the shower to the right. The shower is huge, and it has a lovely door to it better than many people will have at home.
Overall I think the Lunar Lexon is a great little van for two people.
