Orders were 14.5% up on last February’s event making it the fourth consecutive year that the Lancashire based manufacturer has beaten its previous show performance.

The success follows ‘record’ sales taken at the Motorhome & Caravan Show in October (25%) and is evidence of Lunar’s widening brand and product appeal.

 

There was a stand out sales performance once again from the Clubman and Delta range, accounting for over 40% of all orders taken. Also retailing well on its first ‘Spring show’ outing were the three twin axle models from Lunar’s new premium brand, ‘Alaria’.
