    Just bought new Sterling Eccles 635 the bed width was of some concern. But both me and wife had excellent nights sleep room in bed was not an issue.

    I am 5′ 10 and wife is 5′ 9 and I am over 19st and broad and the wife is athletic build to.

    Perfect would recommend great van

    Hi. Just seen this reply. I know. Long time! I truly don’t understand manufacturers’, or for that matter, customers’ philosophy on the fixed double bed width. If I can’t turn over without causing a disiturbance, then the bed is too narrow for normal daily use. I wouldn’t put up with it at home and I certainly don’t see why I should put up with it on holiday when it’s supposed to be more relaxing, not less. We used to have an ADRIA 642UP, which allowed two fixed singles to be rolled together, giving a superb 5’4″ width. We upgraded quality-wise to a Unicorn 3 Cartagena, which has a 4’8″ fixed double. Not perfect but I believe the widest available on a UK manufactured top-end caravan and just about acceptable. When I look around sites at the size of some people, I can’t help but wonder about their sleeping arrangements!

    Great layout with no wardobes either side of the bed to bang your head on. Pity Swift only use the layout in the Sterling range which is not my taste.

  4. Andrew Flesher says:

    I think you are showing the incorrect payload figure?

    • Liz @ Caravan Guard says:

      Well spotted Andrew. I’ve amended that now to 180kg. Thanks for letting us know.

    Micro no use a health & issue due to height apart from that all okey. Robbie

    Looks great but how wide is the fixed double? Not another con (not exclusive to Sterling to be fair) where they tell you deluxe large but are really telling you it’s raining while they “P” on you. The 640 double was 4ft 4″, which in my book is not deluxe. Hopefully the new 635 fixed double is wider.

    • Craig @ Caravan Guard says:

      Hi Lawrence, thanks for the comment. I’ll try find out the bed width for you.

        Hi Lawrence
        Unfortunately this is is the widest fixed bed provided by Swift. It seems to be common with all caravan manufacturers who provide fixed beds.
