I'm a novice caravan'r, and have just been to see a 2017 Lunar Venus 540, with an MTPLM of 1330Kg.

 

Very impressed with it, and ticks all my boxes, or so I think.

 

The dealer says that my 2015 2.0L Ecoboost Powershift Mondeo Tit est 240BHP will pull it so easily that I won't know that the van's there.

 

Hmmm, is that just sales talk, or is he right?

 

What do more experienced caravan'rs think?

 

Is it too heavy, and will I be able to tow on motorway in 6th gear?

 

When / if I get it, photos to follow.

The diesel model will tow it better even if you get a 140bhp model.

 

But the autobox helps close the gap between them.

 

It will tow 1330kg, just watch the gearbox on the hills, you may want to help it

on some hills where it may hunt up and down a bit.  Going a bit quicker or a

bit slower may cure that though.

 

With my 2L diesel yes it pulled well in 6th gear, BUT... it actually used less fuel in 5th gear.

 

I did some tests on a 40mph road in 4th and 5th gear to verify it with the OBD tool installed.

 

Although the revs dropped in 5th gear i was actually pushing the throttle down further to

maintain the same 40mph speed.  9% throttle usage in 4th and 18% in 5th.

 

Oops waffle mode disengaged :)   Yes it will tow fine, you just need to practice.  :)

My caravan is a 2008 Lunar Lexon 580 csl with EB If i didn't have towing mirrors on I would forget it was there after a while.

 

There is a danger you can drive too fast.
