In 2012, for the 2013 season, Lunar took a giant step forward, introducing a radical external overhaul to a number of its key ranges: Clubman, Delta and Lexon. Although it opted against introducing the fashionable sunroof that some rivals have now rolled out across a number of their ranges, these updates represented significant improvements to the maker’s products.

The 2013 Lexon range now has a one-piece roof, flat one-piece aluminium sidewalls, a white powder-coated awning rail and a redesigned full-height rear panel. Up front, the windows are larger and flush-fitting in a curvaceous new front panel – it’s a radical rethinking that makes for a very stylish Lexon indeed.

The twin-axle, twin-single-bed Lexon 640 model tested here was one of two new floor plans introduced for 2013. Tourers with fixed twin single beds and an end washroom are now among the most fashionable and best-selling layouts on the market today. They first appeared a couple of years ago in luxury ranges, but now they’ve become a regular feature in mid-market tourers, such as the Lexon.

Their prime appeal is to couples who prefer not to sleep together on tour and who enjoy the convenience of an end washroom. But its beauty is in its flexibility: those with young children or grandchildren may appreciate the ability to make up the lounge sofas into a transverse double bed, while retaining the privacy of separate bedrooms and the luxury of an en suite set-up.
