For many buyers, price and weight are the first things to check when looking at caravans for sale. For some, however, these are less of a consideration than quality and longevity.

They are the kind of people who traditionally favour the products of Coachman and Hymer, but for the past year, you’ve been able to add Swift and Sterling to that list, with their matching top-of-the-line Elegance and Continental ranges. We had a Swift Elegance 570 on long-term test last year and were highly impressed; now we look at its identical twin from Sterling.
