Maximum towing limits don't really apply when talking about caravans. :(
What is the kerb weight of your Evoque and what is the MTPLM of the the Lunar?

The roof isn't bonded so if you go for it don't wander around or get up there on your hands and knees in the same way as you may do and can do on the Bailey.

If you read current threads it looks like there are recognised issues with Lunar floors delaminating early on. Having said that all UK manufacturers have a habit of producing the odd rogue van.

Both look a bit basic to me the Venus we saw was far better than the Pursuit inside, which had some very poor design features. These things though are very personal. As far as quality is concerned neither are prefect but the Venus did come second to the Sprite for customer satisfaction in the magazines last survey
