50 Lunar Vacanza Camper Car
The all new and exciting ‘Lunar Vacanza Camper Car’ is the first of its kind on the UK market and combines the dual benefits of a roomy, four-person camper with an efficient, easy to manoeuvre, everyday family car.

Have you see these at the shows?
Have you seen them on the road?
Would you be interested in owning one?
Or are they just not your cup of tea?

Why not let us know what you think.

Cheers  Ratty

We've been talking about it on another thread. The NV200 has always stuck one or two of us as an excellent base vehicle for a conversion if you want a fairly small vehicle. For its size the potential habitation area is larger than average inside as Nissan designed it to hold two pallets, plus it's a UK spec vehicle making life a bit easier re spares and servicing than some of the similar sized Jap imports.

One or two small converters appear to have done a few, but its nice to see a "major" player join in. From what I have been able to see from the pictures and video on the website it looks good. I personally prefer the layout they have used with the kitchen etc at the back (and it looks like room for the portapotti when the bed's up), rather than the VW type layout side furniture/rock and roll bed that more often gets used in this size vehicle, but that's a personal preference. It looks fairly well spec'ed with quite a lot of thought put into it. I also like the front seats swivelling, which is fairly important in a small camper but not often done. I would need to try the bed out (it's a blow up mattress though shaped to fit in properly and, it would appear, with an on board inflator) but it's an interesting take on getting a smooth mattress when the beds in this sort of layout are normally formed from the two front seats and two rear seats.

If we weren't already satisfied with what we've got for the sort of camping we do, I would be very tempted. It's small enough to act as your only vehicle (we did even consider buying an NV200 just as a car) but it looks as if it would just about be big enough to go touring in - there's pretty much the same area inside as we used to have in our old Transit camper. Perhaps the only area that it could be a bit short on is general storage for a longer holiday. Edit - just seen on Practical Motorhome website that Lunar have a special trailer for it due out soon (though not sure how that will be any better than any other trailer). Also a tailgate awning specially designed for it.
By the way forgot to say earlier I like the look of the blinds for all the windows - so much more practical than curtains.
Just Googled and they seem to be getting demonstrators round some dealers already - good to have the possibility of seeing one locally rather than having to travel the length of the country as you would with smaller converters.

Hi Ratty, saw it at the show and it is better in reality than the photos and you tube video would have you believe. Agree with the comments above about layout but for us, having to get out of the camper to make the bed is a big turnoff for winter and wet weather, hence we are putting together a rock and roll , raising roof version of our own. see my blog at www.dvickers1955.wordpress.com  Having said all that if we had not ordered our base vehicle we would be interested in owning one ! The Lunar Vacanza should be a very capable and economical camper.  Our van is a very high spec NTec with lots of extras including aircon, cruise control, sat nav and so on. We shall use it as day to day car replacement (we are retired) and will tow our Freedom Microlite for longer stays away as we love CL sites with no facilities and the caravan has a shower which we use every day whilst camping. see http://youtu.be/nSRHU2b70-k  Hope you enjoy the blog and viewing our little caravan "wetroom". All this has been on previous blogs so sorry for reposting 17

cramming for my finals in the twilight zone
