Lunar Caravans celebrating 40th anniversary

Lunar Caravans plan to renovate an early model to mark the company's 40th birthday

Lunar Caravans is marking its 40th anniversary by taking on a special project involving an old-school mobile home.

The UK-based firm has acquired an early model from its range, which was launched in 1969, and intends to renovate it as part of its celebrations.

Bought from the Garrard family of Suffolk, the caravan originally cost £505 and was purchased almost four decades ago.

The 37-year-old Lunar Venus Mark II is set to be restored to how it would have looked when it was bought from Basildon Caravan Centre in 1972.

It will be used as a display model at the upcoming National Boat, Caravan and Outdoor Show 2009.

The firm is planning to entice attendees to join its anniversary celebrations by asking them to fill out a competition entry card at the event.

One lucky winner will walk away with 40 bottles of free champagne to enjoy on caravanning trips, courtesy of Lunar.
