In this edition of CaravanTimes Classic Gold, our reviewer enthuses about the design of the Lunar Lexon EW. He may have been enjoying it in 2013, more than a decade after its original release, but Terry Dawkins was quite taken with this caravan that was a "treat of a tow".

He started out by highlighting the layout of the caravan, which despite its length remained very stable. Mr Dawkins said that the set up worked very well for two people, offering lots of space in the shower and toilet area.

When it came to design, our reviewer was also impressed with his only complaint being that he'd have preferred an island bed. This is a feature of newer vans, but not this 2001 model, so one inhabitant had to climb over the other to get out in the night.

It certainly sounds like Mr Dawkins and his partner made the most of their Lunar Lexon EW. He said: "We have many highlights, the best of which was when we towed it up into the Pyrenees at about 3,000 metres this year. We could not have wished for a better tow."

Unfortunately, the couple did encounter a faulty rear upper quarter panel, which sprung a leak and was costly to repair. This led to our reviewer giving the van a rating of three for quality and reliability when it was fours and fives in all other areas.

Did you have a Lunar Lexon EW in 2001 or any time after? We'd love to hear how you got on with it and the adventures you enjoyed with this caravan.
