We love caravans, but we’d be hard pushed to call them beautiful. The new Sterling Elite gets close, however. Striking silver sides, sharp, detailed graphics and a plunging roofline mean this is a tourer that stands out from the crowd. But is it all show and no go? For that, we had to have a proper look.
Pitching and setting up
The huge front locker has great access and acres of space for storing caravan essentials. External gas and mains sockets are fitted on the nearside. The only big omissions are a tracking system and Al-Ko ATC. Rival vans at this level have both.
The side dinette seats are fine for breakfast or for the kids, but the supportive lounge seating is the only place to perch.
Will prospective owners forgive a few missing items of kit here and there to get hold of a caravan this special? Probably. Not perfect, but not far off.
- Cutting-edge style with a traditionally appealing layout
- Works very well
- Rivals get a tracking system and ATC
- Budget for fitting as aftermarket options
