This is a suburb van,it's our sixth in fifty years,and we've had three large motor homes, We have had the dining table legs replaced under warranty,it's rubbish! We have removed front chest/table as it made the noseweight too heavy for our car,n/weight is now about 80 kgs.

Wonder if the table legs are the same as we have on the Lexon...are they aluminium and seem a bit offset when the table is erected? What problems did you have?
Yes,very difficult to fold Down,you have to pull the legs out to fold.after a few times bits of plastic fell off every fold and the hinge stops just broke up.lubrication didn't help.even the dealer said it was pretty poor design. He contacted Lunar who supplied new legs as the top was fine,just bought Kampa table in sale for £11.18 so will probably use this,although it is two inches or so wider. I have probably had about ten tables in the last fifty years,this one takes the prize for useless! Lunar take note! Mentioned it on CT back while,many agreed.
Definitely a very odd design for a table, hope ours holds up!
Further to my review,since then we have had several small problems,the one worth a mention is a soggy,spongy floor has developed the entire length of the floor,i.e.delamination. My research is that this is becoming very common among Lunar caravan owners of recent years, It seems caravan manufacturers still cannot produce a caravan that owners can use and not get damp,leaks,or spongy floors! Does it pay to buy British made?probably not imo.!
