An unexpected addition to the Venus range at the Motorhome and Caravan Show was the two berth 460/2. Technically speaking however it’s a reintroduction as this model was last made for the 2017 season.
The 460/2 has the classic two berth end washroom layout that is also shared by the more expensive Lunar Quasar 462 and Lunar Clubman CK. Venus caravans being made by Lunar, however they don’t carry the Lunar name or moon logo.
Inside, and new for 2019, the soft furnishings are called ‘Malawi’ which complement the light walnut wood grain furniture with ‘brushed oak’ furniture door. Worktops are in ‘Talavera’ laminate.
The Venus range doesn’t feature a front sunroof like many more expensive caravans have, however there is a single front window and again new for 2019 a large Skyview rooflight.
Kitchen wise, to go with the Dometic fridge freezer there is a Thetford K Series oven and grill with a four burner hob. An 800 watt microwave is again a new features. As the 460/2 is a bit longer than some caravans there is some worktop space next to the circular sink with removable draining board.
Across the rear, the washroom wouldn’t look out of place in a more expensive caravan. The walk-in shower is to the right with the Thetford C220 CW toilet to the left. The washbasin is in top mounted bowl style which gives a little but of worktop space. That ample sized wardrobe lives next to the sink unit.
For 2019 the Venus range specification has increased. Whilst some items may be cosmetic such as the graphite coloured gas locker door, new graphics with white side skirts and wheel arches, however some of the changes lift the Venus range from being classed as budget. Additional new items included an Al-Ko AKS stabiliser hitch, alloy wheels, spare wheel in an underslung carrier and Pioneer Radio/ Aux in/USB player. These are in addition to the items already mentioned.
Overall the 460/2 is a welcome addition to the Venus range. A classic layout with a modern interior which also would appeal to an older couple wanting a light weight two berth.
