Lunar’s Quasar range battles for the mid-price sector of the touring caravan market with the Bailey Olympus, Elddis Avanté and Swift Group’s Challenger Sport and Eccles Sport. Although their model line-ups differ, all include the popular two-berth end-washroom layout. Prices are competitively packed into an £800 range, starting with the Quasar 462 at £14,995. 

Lunar’s more upmarket Lexon, Clubman and Delta ranges sport a striking new body shell for 2013, but the company has opted to retain a tweaked version of the older shape for Quasar. This may appear to be a weak hand to play against freshly shaped competition, but the ace up the Quasar’s sleeve is weight. It saves about 75kg on an equal length basis, and that really counts as cars get ever lighter. We took a closer look to see what else the Quasar has to offer, if you are busy browsing the caravans for sale pages.
