The Lunar Clubman range has become something of an institution in British caravanning. It has been around longer than Alde heating in the UK, and this desirable system is included as standard in the Lunar’s most luxurious single-axle range.

It was also firmly established as a byword for comfort long before fixed beds, like the transverse island bed that features in the end-washroom Clubman SI, became a must-have addition.

Still, these are two of the major factors that helped to propel the SI to becoming Lunar’s biggest seller of all in the 2017 season. More than 300 people parted with the nigh-on £25,000 needed to become an owner of this vehicle. So is the new season’s SI still worth it? We took one for a spin around the New Forest to find out.
