Caravan summary

What's good?

Extending transverse island bed. Lighter than similar layout twin-axles. Plenty of storage areas - much more so than the Sterling previously owned. Single key for all locks.

What's bad?

Nothing is bad, so minor points noted below.

Would you recommend it?

Yes

Style & comfort *****

Do you like the way it looks?

Yes, understated but tasteful graphics.

Is it comfortable?

Yes, very, especially for a couple. Separate living/kitchen, toilet/shower & bedroom areas add to this comfort.

Ease of towing *****

Is it easy to tow?

Yes, like most twin axles it is very stable.

Reliability & water ingress *****

Anything to look out for?

Minor niggles - front locker hinge fouls limited locker space. Some evidence of poor finishing - one blind top fitted off-square resulting in a small but noticeable gap when blind closed up, thankfully in the bathroom so not a major issue. Awning rail not opened other than at the very end making it difficult as it requires being stooped down at the very start of the awning rail at the bottom of the caravan.

Practicality *****

Does it meet your holiday needs?

Yes.

Any modifications?

Powrtouch Evolution single axle motor mover & Dometic kitchen extractor hood - dealer fitted. Caravanbrite paint treatment.

The addition of the mover makes lining up for the Alko lock receiver so much easier than attempting to manually do this using the tow-car.

Buying experience ****

Did you buy it new or used?

new

Where did you buy it?

Franchised dealer

What was the seller like?

Okay.
