Sterling Eccles Elite Searcher Used Caravan

£12,995   12 MONTHS WARRANTY

4 Berth · Fixed Double Bed · 2010 · AL-KO AKS 3004 Stabiliser · Bradcott Awning included

This 4 berth caravan is in a lovely condition ( some minor wear and tear only ) both internally and externally. Underneath the caravan body you will find an AL-KO galvanised steel chasis. There is a two part entance door ( stable door ) which will provide lovely ventilation during the hot summer months and the door is fitted with a window blind and waste bin. The caravan also comes with a Bradcott awning ( Please note: The awning is supplied 'as is' and is not included in the terms of the warranty ).

The Front Lounge
The front lounge seating follows the now standard arrangement with the two drawer cabinet seperating the left and right seating. Seats are not of the same length ( 1 x 163cm and 1 x 155cm ) but are really comfortable to sit on - quite supportive and the upholstery is in excellent condition. You can access the storage space beneath the seats either by removing the seat cushions and lifting the slatted wood seat frames ( see photograph ) or via the almost full width front doors set into the seat bases.

The lounge does have it's own TV connection point with 12 volt and mains power supply. This provides any easy connection point should you want a TV set at the very front of the caravan. The connection is at the base of the seat ( see photograph ). Additional entertainment is provided by the high quality, JVC CD / Radio player ( see photograph ) which is hidden out of view in one of the overhead lockers. It is linked to the signal booster for improved signal reception and is of course connected to the two insets speakers at the very front of the caravan.

As well as the storage space beneath the seats mentioned previously, the front lounge area has six overhead lockers and a good cupboard space at the bottom of the two drawer cabinet.

At night this area can be made into a bedroom area with a double bed ( 6' 9" x 5' 1" ) or alternatively two single beds ( 1 @ 5'4" x 2'4" and 1 @ 5' 1" x 2' 5" ). To make this task easier and more practical, there is an easy bed make-up system to aid this process ( see photograph ). This is an array of wooden slats that glide out from under the drawer cabinet to provide support for the beds. It is as easy to put away as it it to pull-out.

To give enough daylight into the lounge there is a combination of five surrounding windows but also the rooflight above. All windows have flyscreens, blinds and easy draw curtains. Night-time lighting comes from the four directional spotlights that have their own switches, a mood lighter that is set at the front behind the pelmet and two lights with front diffusers.

The Kitchen
The kitchen units, worktop and appliances are in excellent condition. The kitchen design utilises both sides of the caravan to make a very practical, highly useable kitchen. Storage in the kitchen is always important and Sterling have found ways of utlises every little space available. Above the worktop is a combination of shelves, two wide overheadlockers and a smoked fronted cupboard. Excellent space is afforded by the large, double fronted cupboard beneath the worktop ( see photograph ). In addition there is a good storage cupboard beneath the oven - absolutely ideal for baking trays and a tall thin cupboard immediately to the right of the oven that has a number of shelves and is probably suitable for storage food stuffs like baked beans and thin packets.

At first glance you might think that the kitchen could do with a bit more work-surface - well Sterling would agree with you and to this end there is a worktop extension that flaps down into the bedroom space. This will be handy when prepping meals and is very easy to put down and up.

The kitchen comes with a Thetford style glass fronted oven and grill which are in very good condition and have electronic ignition as well as a flame failure device for safety. ( see photographs ) and a Thetford dual fuel hob with 3 gas burners and an 800 watt electric hotplate. On the opposite side is the 700 watt microwave and the large 175 litre fridge with seperate freezer compartment.

For daylight to the kitchen there is a window that provides light across the worktop and a medium sized rooflight overhead. For nightime lighting there is a single lightoverlooking the the sink area.

The Fixed Bedroom Area
Many people like the convenience a fixed bedroom gives - doing away with the need to make a bed up every night and pack it all away in the morning. This bedroom gives a good sized double bed ( 6' 3" x 4' 5" ). The bedroom has four overhead lockers, a large wardrobe style cupboard with hanging rail and further storage beneath that ( see photograph ).

The TV station is sited in the bedroom area, so if you like to relax and watch TV from the comfort of the bed, then it should be no problem. Also, if you like to read in bed then each side of the bed has a directional spotlight with an individual switch ideally suited to this.

For daylight there is a wide window, a smaller window on the opposite sideand a medium sized rooflight. Night lighting is provided by the two directional spotlights plus a single spotlight over a very small vanity area.

The WC / Shower Room
When you walk into this caravan's WC / Shower room the first thing you notice is the amount of space - cramped it is not. So toweling down after a shower or wash is easy. Another distinctive design aspect is the 'walk-in' shower cubicle. The large 'P' shaped shower cubicle does not require a door ( see photograph ). To the left of the cubicle is the washbasin with single mixer tap, wall mounted mirror behind and storage for toiletries beneath. Then finally the swivel Thetford cassette toilet which has plenty of room around it also has a large rack of shelves with hanging rails and a good wall mounted cupboard for further bathroom storage.

Mounted into the ceiling is a roof light which as well as providing natural daylight can also be used to help keep moisture escape. Night-time lighting comes from two small fixed spotlight over the washbasin area.
Used caravans from PENROSE TOURING come with a 12 month warranty for peace of mind.

Hi Dick
I had a 36 months gold package with them and made a claim for a repair in France.
They paid 80% of the bill which was over 1100 euro.
In my book that was good value
Quote 2
Hi Glandwr.
I have had very good experiences with this company 3 years ago. Firstly,the power steering rack failed.One phone call to MB&G. I was asked where I would like to have it done,which was our local garage in Gretna.They then contacted the gararage.All I had to do was to sit and wait a few days until it was done.Brilliant!

Next was the kitchen tap which went in France--quick phone call to MB&G--kept receipt and was re-imbursed within 4 days of being back home. The integral bike rack hinges failed. It was repaired by Peter Hambilton,who did a brilliant job. Again,just a quick phone call to MB&G,and everything was sorted. I would only hope they are still as good now as they were then. I couldn't fault them. The warranty was in with the price of the van,so I can't say how much it cost but as the van was 10 yrs old I wanted some form of assurance for that 1st year. Incidentally,it's needed nothing since, other than basic service items. You can only speak as you find,but for me they were vey good.
