Light weight is all the rage at present and the Venus range seeks to grab a slice of the entry-level action. Designed and built at Lunar’s factory in Preston, Venus is a new all-new brand which goes head to head with Elddis Xplore, Sprite, Adria Altea and Bailey Orion. The 320-2 is the lightest UK-built tourer in 2012. It shares the clean, cutting edge styling of its big sisters in the Venus range, but with an internal length of three metres and a overall width of 2.09m, getting the internal details right is essential if the van is going to appeal to buyers.
Pitching and setting up
The Venus range looks a well-timed entry to the market. It strikes a good balance between light weight and desirability to ensure that this pint-size tourer is an attractive proposition.
- The 320/2 is very light weight, very compact and sharply styled
- It makes a suitable tow match for a range of superminis and really is a caravan for all
- Little worth worrying about but the unlined washroom cubicle and understated exterior graphics are the main pointers to the Venus's budget status
