Tue 01st November 2016 Lunar Caravans is celebrating a hat trick of award wins at the prestigious 2017 Caravan Design Awards run by The Caravan Club. Each of the three accolades was awarded to tourers from the Lancashire based manufacturer’s latest 2017 collection and come on the back of a record breaking sales performance at the caravan industry’s largest annual consumer event, the Motorhome & Caravan Show, staged at the NEC in Birmingham. Scooping top prize in one of the most competitive categories, ‘Best Caravan priced between £17,000 and £20,000’, was the two berth Quasar 462; a single axle tourer with spacious 6’1” long front seating featuring Lunar’s new ‘Easy Action’ slide out bed bases and a SkyView roof light with new LED lit surround. A victory in this category demonstrates Lunar’s ability to provide caravanners buying at entry level every comfort and convenience, along with best-value-for-money. The brand new four-berth, twin axle Quasar 674 took first place in the category for ‘Best Caravan with Dedicated Beds, priced £20,000 - £24,000’. Equipped with a transverse island bed, with optional mattress extension up to 6’4”, as well as 6’1” long front seating with ‘Easy Action’ slide out bed bases, the Quasar 674 offers a comfortable and cosy caravan hideaway for families as well as couples. An all-new model from an all-new Lunar brand secured victory in the category for ‘Best Caravan priced £28,000 - £34,000’, or best luxury caravan. Launched to the industry just a fortnight before their debut at the Motorhome & Caravan Show, the Alaria TI is one of a new collection of three, four-berth twin axle models designed for those seeking the crème-de-la-crème of caravans. Entries into this coveted category clearly demonstrate that they offer every possible luxury and comfort whilst making life on the road convenient and carefree. Top prize is evidence that Lunar has achieved these aims with the new Alaria TI. Based on the layouts of Lunar’s best selling top-end models, the Alarias offer an unrivalled luxury specification, such as an E&P self leveling system as standard. They also boast a fresh new approach to styling and lounging with a sunroof and Maxi SkyView roof light, sleek fascia with inbuilt controllable RGB mood lighting, dedicated media hub with 21” Avtex Freeview TV/DVD, USB charging ports and a pop up bank of power sockets, plus an innovative domestic style ‘L’ shaped sofa in the lounge area with ‘Easy Action’ slide out base to convert effortlessly into a double bed. Says Lunar Chairman and CEO, “The Caravan Club Design Awards are always highly anticipated as they are judged by the most respected seasoned professionals in our industry. To receive one award at this event is fantastic; to receive three is amazing! “We invest a huge amount of energy, time and passion crafting caravans that we believe are the best on the market. For three very different models to win in three very different categories is truly gratifying,” he added.
