New Swift Challenger, Abbey GTS, Sterling Eccles and Ace Award ranges are packed full of tempting new features

The new Swift Challenger, Abbey GTS, Sterling Eccles and Ace Award ranges have had a lot of added value built in for the new season to provide tempting reasons for customers to change to a new caravan.

One of the major enhancements to all four ranges is the addition of new energy saving lighting. With the majority of lighting by high output, soft white LEDs, the system now uses half as much energy. This prolongs battery life and makes it realistic to power the system from a solar panel, which in turn gives greater independence.

Two new twin axle, fixed bed layouts have also been added to all four ranges, offering six layouts to choose from which are all 2.3m (7’6”) wide with 1.95m (6’5”) headroom, ensuring generous living, sleeping and washroom areas.

Following customer feedback all ranges now benefit from shock absorbers for a smoother more stable ride, tyres with higher speed rating and positive catches on all overhead lockers for secure loading.

Luxury washrooms are further enhanced - in addition to a fully lined shower cubicle in all models, C250 Thetford toilet with larger seat and new wheeled holding tank and 32mm thick lightweight washroom door with domestic style handle, they also have new stylish bathroom fittings.

Interiors benefit from new luxury 45oz pile weight (70% thicker) carpet which looks good for longer and the Sterling Eccles range, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary, additionally offers an all new interior with furniture in ‘Oregon’ pine with ebony accents and complementary soft furnishings.

Further new features include five 230v sockets to meet modern demands, a 40 litre underfloor insulated fresh water tank in twin axle models and an LED awning light.

The Sterling Eccles and Ace Award ranges have striking new graphics to the one piece, thick gauge, high gloss aluminium sidewalls. All windows including new Heki Deluxe rooflights are fitted with pleated cassette flyscreens and blinds. Key features of the Challenger, Abbey GTS, Sterling Eccles and Ace Award ranges include:
