After posting last week looking for a fixed bunk van, I appear to of accidentally put a deposit on a Lunar Chateau 500 which is just the layout we are after.

 

What are the thoughts and opinions of these 'impostor Lunar's' on the forum? Are these Belgium built vans liked/disliked.

 

Positive & or negative feedback, problems, faults, likes etc please. .......

 

Forearmed is forewarned or something like that. :D

 

Thanks,

One problem I see is the integral bathroom and shower. Everything gets wet!!!!!!!! :o

We had a Lunar Chateau a few years ago when we returned to caravanning after a break of a few years. The biggest problems as far as we were concerned were the combined shower/toilet (common to lots of vans) and the very thin upholstery (this may have changed) which meant the beds were not very comfortable.

 

Cheers

sorry Mark but I am not sure what you mean - as others have asked, how did you pay a deposit "accidentally"? and what is an "imposter Lunar"?

The Lunar Chateau is/was not made by Lunar but by a Belgium company called Chateau. Apparently Lunar were given these Chateau vans by their then parent company Tirus to sell. Tirus sold other brands like Cristall Further info on CT before going bust in 2007. Lunar are now UK owned again and as it happens celebrating their 40th Birthday this year.

 

As for the "accidentally paying a deposit", well found the Lunar on eBay and it was going to finish that day. Was a bit of an impulse bid after a quick round of emails and a chat with the seller. Not my usual process of taking time to way the pros and cons before making the jump.

 

UPDATE: had a call and although I won the auction the seller now states that they will not release the van to me :angry: What is going on. ......

 

So it appears the hunt for the fixed rear bunk van continues. ...................

 

Thanks everyone for the feedback, please keep it coming :)
