Despite being a top seller over the past two years, Jayco has updated its Sterling caravan after customer feedback. Highlights are the electric slide-out bed and lounge, cruved kitchen design, built-in blinds, Coast to Coast washing machine and new Dometic windows.
Additional equipment has also led to a price increased of less than $2000. Jayco marketing director Andrew Ryan says the updated model reaches a "new standard in design and comfort".
The Sterling Caravan starts at $54,550 plus on-road costs. Ryan says their buyers are "generally baby boomers". "They have higher disposable income and want the luxury that the Sterling offers whilst still offering great value," he says.
The Sterling now comes in a range of new and modified layouts with airconditioner, TV and rollout awning standard. Styling in the new kitchen features curved seats, sink, drawers and table.
There is also an improved Thetford swivel toilet, patented aluminium furniture construction and an upgraded 150-litre fridge.
Externally, Jayco has upgraded the Sterling's wheels, graphics and has provision for an external barbecue installation. Last year, Jayco introduced a 24-hour roadside assist program which is provided free for three years.
