This special Animation edition of the Sterckeman Alizé 370CE was one of the highlights of 2013’s Spring NEC show, alongside other affordable offerings from this most German-sounding of French brands. 

Imported by Freedom Caravans in Stafford, a dealership specialising in small tourers with low weights, Sterckeman is a brand with a loyal following among those in the know. This includes older caravanners who want something easy to tow and store, as well as families with small children looking to keep their touring compact and simple. With an MTPLM of just 1050kg, a wide range of small cars, from a Kia Rio to a Volkswagen Golf, could safely tow the Alizé 370CE. 

We’re big fans of small tourers on Practical Caravan, and applaud vans that offer families an affordable route into our pastime – especially ones that can be towed by holders of driving licences without B+E entitlements. So we were delighted to be able to collect an Alizé 370CE from Freedom Caravans and give it an in-depth look at Capesthorne Hall at Siddington Cheshire.
