An exploration of the UK unpaid carer's world

Our motorhome

This much-loved motorhome is up for grabs.  You can buy it or swap it if you have a newer, smaller vehicle.

My wife’s progressive impairment means that we mainly need a day-van.  If it has sleeping arrangements for occasional use, even better.

Converting the Lunar name to “Lunarcy” comes from our initial over-the-moon state of mind over just how much the van had what we were looking for and our obsession in 2008 that we’d never get rid of it. I am a full-time carer with the aim of keeping my wife as healthy as possible and ensuring she enjoys the fresh air and mobility that motor-homing offers.  A rear-lounge van will enable that to happen.

We are the first owners of the van.  It’s done less than 12,000 miles.  

The price of the van is £19,500.  If that appeals, or you have something to swap, let’s chat.

The van we bought is here.  Some pictures are here.  The van shown is similar.  There's no internal shower.  A window has been put in at the back.


Here is the layout.  

Top left is the bathroom.  The shower removal gives a much more practical room.

Next is the long kitchen surface - sink on the left and cooker on the right.  Next right is the door.

Bottom left is the fixed bed.  The pale yellow box at the end shows the wardrobe.  

The two people at the table are visitors.  We occupy the white space to the right of the table.  The two driving seats turn round.  Each has two armrests.

It is 5.9 m (19' 42) long and add 20 cm (8 ") for the rear rack.  It is 2.25 m (7' 52) wide not including wing mirrors.

Plenty of cupboards.  Many elsewhere. 

 Plenty of shelves.


Above the loo and with good headroom, are more cupboards.  One has a microwave cooker. 

This handy rack takes the proverbial kitchen sink.
