Description: Lunar Conquest 460-2
This is a great Lunar Conquest 462 2 berth caravan from a well-regarded caravan manufacturer, which manages to strike a great balance between weight and equipment specification. Thiis caravan has has just come dorectly from a motorhome main dealer. It has just been through a service and damp-check with an independent approved workshop, has been cleaned inside and out by us and comes with 3 months warranty.
Externally for 2013, Lunar chose to keep the standard look to the front but increased the Conquest's front glazing area by 25% and there are 3 double glazed windows in the 3/4 heightset, over a gas locker. The shapely rear has a full-height moulding, with striking rear light clusterd and there are nice touches like the body-coloured awning channel, the combined porch light and drip guard and a tough Al-Ko hitch cover. There is also a wet locker, an outside 230V socket and a shower connection point, which could prove very handy on your caravan holidays.
Inside, the Lunar's lounge with its four soft armrests and two large scatter cushions, provides a spacious yet cosy living area. The oatmeal and chocolate-toned fabric selection coordinates well with the wood colour and door highlights. Although finished in neutral tones, the fabric is good quality and is easy to live with. Both seats are plenty long enough for a daytime nap or for accommodating several guests at mealtimes around a separate dining table. The seats convert into a large double with the familiar slat system which is housed under the useful storage chest, for comfortable sleeping. The front seats, used as single beds, measure 1.87m. That’s about an inch shorter than domestic size, but will be adequate for most. Taller people can sleep double, across the van, on a generous sized bed of 2m x 1.48m with the drawer chest left in place. Sockets are provided to watch television on the front drawer chest and central cupboard, and lighting choice, all LED, is comprehensive. Storage is provided under the seats and in the overhead aircraft style lockers. The under-seat stowage is good: the right hand side houses the Combi heater, battery box, water system and power supply unit, but these items are arranged to offer a reasonable free space which is accessed through the front flap or the sprung-hinged, aluminium-framed seat base. On the left, only the wet locker takes space, so there’s lots of room for bedding or large items.
Given the Quasar’s light weight, it’s impressive to see mid-shelves fitted in most roof lockers to maximise use of space. And that philosophy continues in the kitchen, dresser unit and two wardrobes. Overall there’s more than enough storage for two people.
Reading lights are fitted in all four corners and there are handy surfaces nearby, whichever direction you lie. Typical of this price level, the cassette blinds are the roller type with plain plasticised material, so it’s best to draw the curtains for a cosy atmosphere.
Moving back throught the Lunar Conquest 462, the kitchen unit is long enough to accommodate the main table and a cupboard with cutlery drawer. A removable drainer maximises available work surface and a sink bowl and chopping board are also provided. The dresser unit opposite supplements both worktop space and storage, especially as the heating system fits under a front seat. Roof lockers on both sides are well equipped with shelves to maximise storage and they carry LED strip illumination underneath. The electronic fridge is one of the latest 8-Series by Dometic and the combined Thetford oven, grill and hob unit has a 230V hotplate. The microwave oven, is fitted at eye level, and comboned with the overn and hob, ensures the option to cook everything from a simple breakfast to a Sunday roast.
A sliding door leads to the is a neat and space-saving solution, and the washroom itself is hard to fault. It’s spacious and pleasingly designed, well lit and well ventilated with a window and Mini-Heki roof light. There are two wardrobes, one with three drawers, a generous shower cubicle and a neat washbasin over a two-door cupboard. The washroom also works well as a changing room.
Setting up the electrics is easy – the power supply unit is just behind full-length flap under a front seat – and there’s a satellite TV connector in the battery compartment.
The 12V control panel and Truma Combi 2E heater panel are conveniently sited by the entrance door. Not surprisingly for a small van, the heating and insulation combination qualifies for Grade III by calculation, ensuring rapid warm-up and winter comfort using the Combi’s gas and 230V power. This caravan has also been fitted with a remote motor mover, taking all the hassle out of reversing and htching up as well as manoevring onto tricky pitches or driveways.
Perfect for a couple, this Lunar Conquest 462 has been well-looked after and real peace of mind is assured as this caravan has just gone through a full service and damp-check with an independent approved workshop. As this is a motorhome main dealer trade in, it also benefts from 3 months warranty! Cleaned inside and out by us, it's ready to hitch up and take away for its next exciting caravanning holiday.
