British firm Lunar offer compact trailer with inflatable awning

BIRMINGHAM, England — Following the launch of the Lunar Vacanza Camper Car earlier this year, Lunar has unveiled a new compact trailer and unique inflatable awning at The Motorhome & Caravan Show.

The clever Freetrail trailer will be presented to market under the new ‘Dorma’ brand; the Freetrail is the first of many new Vacanza accessories which will feature the Dorma name, the company reported. The Freetrail is available in two model variations — an open trailer and a luxury trailer. Both models feature a funky contemporary style design which pairs perfectly with the Vacanza Camper Car.

The Freetrail is aerodynamic, lightweight and robust. It is easy to tow and offers an MTPLM of just 750 kg which makes it an economical choice, the company noted.The Freetrail offers a large amount of storage for its size with a 500 kg payload. As with the Vacanza, safety is paramount to Lunar, which is why the Freetrail has also been awarded European Whole Vehicle Type Approval, according to a press release.

The open trailer model features steel wheels, includes a small door at the front of the trailer and comes with a waterproof tonneau cover for the large storage compartment. The Open Trailer model is priced from £2495, optional extras include alloy wheels, interior courtesy lights, mudflaps and a solid lid.

The Luxury Trailer model comes with alloy wheels, a unique secure hinged lid, door lights and interior courtesy lights, mudflaps and a full braking system. The Luxury Trailer model is available from £2995.

Lunar has also launched a new and unique poleless, inflatable tail gate awning. The light and easy to inflate awning employs Vango poleless ‘AirBeam’ technology that uses robust inflatable tubes in place of traditional poles. The awning can be easily inflated in minutes with the use of the electric onboard air pump resulting in a strong and rigid structure.

The new multi functional tent style awning is self supporting and can be used as a stand alone tent that needs no support from the vehicle. The innovative awning can be fitted to the tail gate quickly and easily with the use of a newly developed neo-magnetic fitting. The beauty of the new fitting method is that no costly awning rail is needed and the awning can be easily attached to or detached from the vehicle in seconds, the company noted.

The awning offers additional living accommodation with a two-person bedroom compartment. It is fully weather and windproof and comes complete with a ground sheet, guy ropes and pegs. The awning is extremely lightweight and it can be packed away into a small bag and stored with ease. The Vacanza awning is available in grey and retails at just £599.

The new Freetrail and Vacanza awning can be displayed at Booths 17 – 39 at The Motorhome & Caravan Show from Oct. 15 to 20 at the NEC in Birmingham.
