We are considering swapping our Lunar Clubman 530/4 for a Lexon EB, mostly because our 2 kids are growing too big for the bunk beds created from the dinette in the clubman. We would be interested in comments from other owners of EB layouts on their recommendations ?

The main reason we are considering a Lunar Lexon EB are :

1) low weight - can still be easily towed by our Nissan Xtrail
2) good size beds (fixed and front beds)
3) proximity to Lunar dealer for warranty repairs (and good service received in the past).
4) No need to change our awning (similar A measurement).
5) Good standard of equipment from Lunar

We are a little concerned regarding the quality of new Lunar caravans - they didn't do so well in the CC survey, and we have experienced some problems with our Clubman - all fixed reasonably quickly by our local dealer.

Also, we liked the clubman End Washroom layout (which we will loose in the EB), but as we normally stay on sites with full facilities and rarely use the shower, its a luxury we can probably do without ! I have not found another van which has 4 good sized beds and an end washroom that could be comfortably towed by our Xtrail (kerbside weight 1500kg) ... unless any one can advise me otherwise ?

Also, any comments on when to make the change ? Will we get a reduction for exchanging at the end of the season for an "old" 2005 model (enough to offset our winter storage costs), or should we part ex at the end of the season for a 2006 model and take delivery next Spring ? :huh:

Lots of questions - really hope you can help us with your comments :D

Cheers
Sarah

We have had our EB for 5 years now and are well pleased with it, As you say the beds are a good size plus there are some touches which are missing from some other fixed vans namely:
The headboard above the fixed bed which has small shelves.
There is a small shelf at the bottom of the bed handy for clock etc.
Extra width makes the van feel very roomy.
Front beds can be used either as 2 singles or double
proper solid bedroom door
And the biggest asset for us is weight 1300kg fully loaded for a van nearly 24ft long.

Del,

Thanks for your comments.

We had a word directly with Lunar - they are revamping the loo/shower room for the 2006 model - so we will wait until these are available before changing.
Hopefully we will be able to part-ex our Clubman later in the year for a reasonable price (unless anyone is interested to buy direct ... ???)

Cheers
Sarah

Seps,

We have a Lexon EB 2004 model. We have no real complaints except for the toilet/shower door. It seems to have been an afterthought and won't open fully due to the sink being too close to the cubicle. But hey, nothing is ever perfect, we never use the shower as such and the loo is only used for overnight. The space in the EB is phenominal really. There aren't many vans of this weight/size that can have 5 adults, standing in the middle of the kitchen area and each has plenty of elbow room. The fixed bed is home from home.

We got a dealer special which has an additional wide sunroof over the fixed bed, it isn't a heiki is some other name that I can't remember. The model also has an omni-vent over the dining area. We like ours and are glad we got it.
