Too small for a motorhome? It could be a bit difficult to call Nissan NV200 Combi a tourist vehicle. But the British company, Lunar Caravans, proves that in certain circumstances a small Nissan turns out to be spacious enough.
Representatives of the brand Lunar say bluntly - their goal was to offer a car that works well both in everyday life and during holidays. Based on a small Nissan's van, model Vacanza fits in this description perfectly.
Agile and economical
The car with a length of 4.4 meters and a width of 2 meters (already with mirrors), allows to overcome even the most tight corners and narrow streets of European cities. It's a big advantage if you plan to go on an active tour.
Vacanza, thanks to 1.5 dCi engine, can not only efficiently and economically move from one place to another, but also frees us from the need to pitch a tent or rent a hotel room.
Such a vehicle is - of course - a bit tight inside, but it has an equipment, which can be found even in much larger motorhomes. A big advantage of Lunar Vacanza is that the sliding doors are arranged on both sides.
Accommodation for four
Driver and passenger seats can be rotated 180 degrees, so to be able to talk or eat a meal with rear seats passengers. 3 of 4 seats have an ISOFIX system, which allows you to take even a small child on the trip.
Behind the second row of seats are two sets of furniture. There, you'll find a 3-burner gas stove, stainless steel sink, grill, fridge and fresh water container. On request you can also have a slide-out, compact chemical toilet. Windows are equipped in pleated blinds, thanks to which you can separate from the outside world at night.
Seats can be transformed into a double bed measuring 1.860 x 1.375 mm. What about the children? For them, the sleeping place was organized under the lifting roof made of fabric. There’s a mattress in the size of 1.990 x 1.000 mm.
LED lighting, which includes even reading lamps, will work very well at night.
Even more benefits
In the standard, the owner of Vacanza gets a reversing camera, air conditioning, CD/MP3 player with Bluetooth and socket 240 V.
For an additional charge, we can equip our motorhome with a large tent mounted behind the rear part of the vehicle – it significantly increases the available space, if you choose a longer stay in one place.
The manufacturer emphasizes that Vacanza, as it is based on thoroughly studied passenger car, can boast of a positive "results" in safety tests. On the other hand - two airbags are not any revelation today.
The permissible gross weight amounts 1997 kg, while the load capacity 322 kg.
The car costs 32,000 pounds in the UK, which is considered an attractive price on that market, when we compare it with other vehicles, for example based on Volkswagen T5.
