Venus Caravans is a lightweight, affordable range of tourers that was launched in February 2012 by the same company that makes the Lunar Caravans range. Built with one-piece aluminium sidewalls, these models are built to last the test of time. Thanks to a lightweight construction process and compact layouts, this collection features some of the lowest MTPLM weights of any caravan built in the UK. The manufacturers say that these models are designed for "caravanners who would like a compact, lightweight caravan that is great value for money and extremely practical for touring holidays and short breaks".

Specification levels are highly competitive for an entry-level caravan, as each Venus comes equipped with a Thetford three-burner gas hob, a combined oven/grill and a Dometic fridge with a full-width freezer. What's more, the Whale underfloor heating system has been installed, alongside the Whale rapid heat-up water heater, making for a practical, space-saving combination. Grade III thermal insulation helps with the cosy feel of this tourer, while the interior design features bright, floral 'Lolita' upholstery, and the classic oak woodgrain adds to the overall effect.

Four to choose from

At launch, the Venus range is comprised of four single-axle layouts, with a pair of two-berth tourers and two four-berth models offered. The compact two-berth 320/2 offers a popular layout, comprising a parallel lounge area, offside washroom and rear-end kitchenette.

For those looking for slightly more space, the 380/2 features a similar layout, but with a larger end washroom and a more spacious offside kitchenette area. Both of these two-berth layouts are available with an L-shaped front lounge for £150 extra.

Moving up the range and the four-berth 490/4 layout offers a fixed double bed for couples who want a little extra luxury. Finally, the 500/4 fixed twin single bed layout completes the range.

Upgrade your Venus

In addition to the basic specification list, Venus buyers can opt for the Plus Pack, which includes alloy wheels, Al-Ko stabilisers and wheel lock receivers, iPod-compatible CD/radio system, a flyscreen for the door, and a spare wheel, all for an extra £399.

For added peace of mind, these tourers come approved by the National Caravan Council and include a six-year bodyshell integrity warranty in addition to a three-year manufacturer's warranty. Finally, this caravan is particularly safe and secure thanks to its Carbon Monoxide detector and CRiS tagging.

Weights for the Venus Caravans range are as follows:

Layout MTPLM
Venus 320/2 905kg
Venus 380/2 998kg
Venus 490/4 1,119kg
Venus 500/4 1,190kg

Self levelling technology: Why is there not more of it out there?

Self levelling systems are popular with its users but there are only a few caravan and motorhome models that offer the technology

The caravan and motorhome industry are amazingly early adopters of technology, and modern leisure vehicle specifications are incredibly high. Some leisure vehicles have more specification than the average home, boasting huge fridges, solar panels, alarm systems, satellite dishes, LED touch lighting, even underfloor wet central heating in some models.
