The sprung seating is upholstered in an attractive and high quality fabric in neutral tones, and is complemented by matching curtains, scatter cushions, arm rests and deep-pile drop in carpets, over a wood-block effect floor. The lounge seating can be used as two small single beds or converted into a large double (7’ x 6’3”) utilising a pull out slat system . There is also a chest of drawers with self-closing mechanism with a fold-out coffee table. If a larger table is required there is a 'fold out' dining table which has its own storage within the kitchen cupboard. There is plenty of storage in the overhead 'aircraft style' lockers, which are finished in a beautiful 'Oregon Pine' effect with ebony accents and chrome handles and there is additional storage under the seats. The large Heki Deluxe panoramic roof light creates an airy and light feel to the living area and is fitted with a cassette blind and flyscreen.
As you would expect with a top of the range Sterling caravan, there is a well-appointed kitchen with large, 107 litres 3 way fridge, with separate freezer and digital controls providing all the cold food storage required on a holiday. There is a Thetford dual fuel hob with 800w electric hotplate and 3 gas burners with electronic ignition and glass hob lid. A domestic-style thermostatic oven and separate grill, combined with built in 800w microwave oven set at eye level, ensures the ability to cater for every kind of meal, from a simple breakfast to a full roast dinner. There is ample food and utensil storage in lockers and cupboards, finished in the same attractive 'Oregon Pine', as well as slide out storage racks. A granite-look sink with chrome finished mixer tap, removable sink drainer and food grade chopping board completes the kitchen equipment. A bi-directional, 3 speed extractor fan is situated above the cooker, providing plenty of ventilation.
The Stering Elite Diamond doesn't compromise on space with washroom facilities either: this model has an impressively spacious bathroom in the rear of the caravan, accessed through a 32mm thick domestic style door. The walk-in shower cubicle is very roomy, and features a separate drying area, chrome finished mixer tap and shower head. There is a swivelling Thetford C250 cassette toilet (with electric flush), a very useful dirty laundry container, sink, mirror and ample storage, with all furniture furnished in 'Oregon Pine'.
Sterling provided increased levels of luxury with the heating system too and the Sterling Elite Diamond a dual fuel 3kw gas and 2kw electric space heater with blown air system ducting to living and washroom areas. This, combined with Grade 2 thermal insulation means the caravan can be comfortably used all year round.
