Nice caravan
2011 Sterling Eccles by Nanuq • 3rd October 2014
Have a 2011 sterling ruby Eccles. Bought for the large bathroom which we both love.It has a super shower and ample storage.
The fixed bed was our other must have. Very comfy bed.Takes a bit of getting used to making up but bar that it's a good bed.
Wardrobe however is close to bed and a bit fiddley to open and shut but holds plenty.
Cooker sits directly at side opposite bed and we've found if cooking anything on the near side ring stuff can spit out and onto the duvet!
Storage in this caravan is ample and outside storage is brilliant, having under bed storage which holds loads.
My biggest gripe is the living space...the curved back on the beds may look eye catching but can be very uncomfortable..The beds are very short and not for an adult. When made into a double bed it's Definately not a double but a wide single unless the two sleeping in it are about 4' in height!!
Kitchen is workable but small surface area. Oven good except for grill.
Fridge is superb with plenty of space if packed correctly and can be really cold if needed.
Enough lights in the caravan to light up Blackpool tower so no complaints in that department!
Blinds ensure a good nights sleep with little or no light getting through.
Tows well.
Overall a good and stylish looking caravan.

Avondale Dart 545-4 2008
Avondale Dart by SCK • 18th January 2012
Bought our Avondale last year from a local dealer and had a great season with the well equipped caravan. The lightweight model meant that towing with a Seat Altea petrol was fine and now towing with a Honda CRV diesel the 1200 kg weight caravan keeps the mpg respectable.

End bath room layout allows for an excellent shower area with more than adequate shelf storage. One draw back with the internal pump leads to noise within the caravan and the Dart model does not come with a spare wheel.

Overall we have been delighted with the practical layout, ease of towing and level of equipment/comfort.
