The Eccles Sport and Eccles SE ranges were launched last season with a very distinctive interior style that gave a more up-to-date look with the kind of feel found in many modern homes today. This has given Sterling a unique style that sets them apart form other caravan brands. For 2015 the brand focuses on these two ranges with enhancements and the flagship Continental range (See separate release for Continental). The Elite range is discontinued.
Both Eccles ranges continue to be built with the new SMART intelligent construction system making them more robust to the elements and an excellent investment for the future. This new construction was very well received, with customers appreciating the extensive research and testing behind it.
Outside enhancements include a new one piece exterior door with concealed hinges and Hartel flysreen and exclusive Scorpion alloy wheel. These add further style to the graphite accents on the gas locker door, hitch cover, skirts and wheel arches
Inside a sliding shower bi-fold door which slides on tracks for improved use and can be locked down for transit and both ranges now benefit from the Duvalay Duvalite mattress on fixed beds.
Adding to the low energy lighting scheme, over locker lighting is changed from fluorescents to LED.
Work top laminates get new Geo white pattern and the feature wallpaper in both ranges is updated, whilst the soft furnishings with rugs and modern hessian effect furniture with matt white locker doors and chrome handles remain the same.
New locker pelmets and china locker header LED lights provide nice additional finishing touches.
Both ranges have the option of 'Impala' stain resistant easy-clean seating fabric with a soft nubuck texture, unique to Swift Group.
Eccles Sport models continue to offer amazing value at weights that can be towed by most family cars and there is an extended range of 7 layouts with the 524 being reintroduced.
Key upgrades added last year including a 40W solar panel Combi 4 or Combi 6, depending on the model and the Eco Camel shower head and hose which gives a more powerful shower. A new Dometic fridge 8 Series 110 litre fridge with removable freezer compartment, as found in the SE range, is fitted for 2015.
The Eccles SE range builds on the Sport range and offers the ultimate in style and specification in this market sector.
Specific range enhancements for 2015 include dimmable LED spotlights and the new Alde 3020 boiler with improved control panel.
There is an additional down light over the end washroom illuminated mirror in response to customer feedback. Swift always like to incorporate feedback where ever possible.
To deter thieves the LED awning light now displays a red flashing light to show when the alarm is armed.
There are four twin axle layouts in the 9 model line up including the new Sapphire with parallel front and rear island bed.
Recognising owners’ desire to protect their investment, all Swift group touring caravans again come fitted with a "TRACKER Retrieve" Thatcham approved tracking system. Many insurers offer discounts for trackers, and it could save customers several hundred pounds for fitting one later.
Swift Group Commercial Director, Nick Page commented, "The Sterling brand is aimed at giving customers a different choice to the normal wooden interiors traditionally seen in touring caravans. It is clear from sales that this is a choice customers want and the new seasons ranges build on last years style with SMART under the skin. They remain one of the most stylish, best constructed touring caravan ranges on the market."
