Lunar Venus 540-4


A stylish refit makes the 2015 Venus feel less like an entry-level van

The Venus name was introduced to the tourer market early in 2012 to serve as the first rung on the Lunar Caravans ladder. The four-model line-up started as a separate brand and undercut the Quasar line. Two years later, and the entire Venus range has received a facelift for the 2015 season.

There are five new models for 2015, including a twin-axle range-topper, but the most popular is likely to be the Venus 540/4, which features a fixed double bed and full-width end washroom – a layout previously employed in the 490/4. Here is the Practical Caravan Venus 540/4 review.

Pitching & Setting-up

This 2015 refresh is more than a spit and polish. The Venus 540/4 features revised front and rear panels, plus a new, larger single front window.

It’s still a boxy shape, but an effort has been made to give it more character using ‘dove grey’ for the front gas locker, side skirts, grabhandles and rear light bezels. It’s also picked up by the new graphics, though it’s a shame they don’t extend further down the sidewalls.

The Venus employs Truma’s Combi 2E blown-air heating system. You’ll find the controls just inside, above the two-piece door and alongside the new Venus-branded main control panel.

Our test van was fitted with the £449 Plus Pack that most buyers are expected to specify. It includes 14in alloys, an Al-Ko AKS stabiliser and Secure wheel lock receiver, a spare wheel, a microwave oven and a radio/CD/MP3 player.
