Venus, Lunar’s budget brand, took off like a rocket after its 2012 launch. Early reviews and the Preston manufacturer’s dealer network were positive.

For 2014, the line-up shed the tiny end-kitchen 320/2, but changes to the remaining three models were minimal. These include a shift from Whale to Truma heating, and from the Al-Ko chassis to BPW’s and both bring benefits. The Truma Combi 4E is more powerful, while fans of the BPW chassis – with the Swing V-Tec axle and a shape built to deter snaking – reckon it’s the best available.

The 380/2 is a two-berth whose layout (parallel seats in front, an offside kitchen and an end washroom) is popular with ralliers. The 995kg MTPLM and less than 6m length make it a good match for small tow cars, such as the 1.6-litre Peugeot 208.
