For 2016 Sterling has reintroduced its Elite range of luxury high-end tourers, as we reported in our Swift Group news story. The Sterling Elite caravans were dropped a few years ago, to the disappointment of fans. So we welcome Swift’s decision not only to bring the range back, but to build it using the Swift Group’s latest SMART HT construction, as first seen on the Swift Elegance and Sterling Continental ranges.

A good specification is part of the Elite range‘s appeal, and when you see the Sterling Elite’s superb new profile, too, it looks like the real deal. 

The Elite 560 has a new layout and offers a front lounge, side kitchen with fridge-freezer opposite. The washroom is then placed between the kitchen and rear bedroom, with the loo on the left and shower cubicle on the right and hand basin placed centrally. At the rear, the fixed bed is placed as an island layout with wardrobes on either side.

This layout was brought into play by Coachman last season and became a surprising success. It was inevitable that other makers would soon come up with their own versions of this idea. Swift has taken up the challenge and offers this layout in the new single-axle Sterling Elite 560. So, how well does it work? And to see other Sterling caravans for sale, click here.
