  • The introduction of the Sprite Freedom range; extending the UK’s best-selling Sprite range and making the entry into a new caravan more affordable and ideal for first time buyers. The new Sprite Freedom range offers three popular six berth family models with all the essentials you need to get away. Built to the same high standards as Swift Group’s more expensive ranges, and featuring SMART Plus construction. 


  • Sprite is the UK's best-selling caravan range. It has revolutionised entry-level caravanning and for 2016 has a more upmarket look and feel but still remains true to its roots. Enhancements for the new season include; SMART plus construction, stylish new graphics and three opening front windows. With a wide range of layouts and options to tailor your model, you are sure to find a Sprite to match your budget.

  • New from the Sterling brand is the Eccles which features SMART Plus Construction. The reintroduced Elite, and Continental ranges which will be on display both feature SMART HT construction and the Alde central heating system. New layouts on the reintroduced Elite include the 560 single axle and 650 twin axle featuring a central washroom. There’s also the option for Alde heating on the Eccles range.  This range offers outstanding value at weights towable by most family cars. The Elite and Continental both feature the superb new Swift Command control system which includes a downloadable app to allow control and/or monitoring of several Caravan functions.


  • New from Swift, providing exceptional value for money; the Challenger, Conqueror and Elegance ranges will also be on display. The Challenger features SMART Plus construction and optional Alde heating system, whilst the all-new Conqueror and top of the range Elegance feature SMART HT construction and Alde heating system. The Conqueror and Elegance models both feature the superb new Swift Command control system which includes a downloadable app to allow control and/or monitoring of several Caravan functions

  • We will have 6 fantastic new ranges on display. SMART Plus construction features on all coach built motorhomes for 2016. At the entry level is the Escape and next level up is the Rio. Expanding the Rio range this season are two new models with more traditional motorhome layouts. The 310 has a parallel front lounge with side kitchen and a rear washroom with a separate shower cubicle and the 325 has a travelling dinette with side washroom and kitchen plus a fixed rear transverse bed which is electronically operated so it can be raised to maximise the garage space beneath.

  • The Bessacarr is a stunning mid to upper level Motorhome range with several enhancements for 2016.

  • Above this sits the all new Black Edition Bolero which is simply stunning.  The profile looks instantly different with a new GRP front pod housing an opening sky view window and a new rear panel with sportier looking lower valance.  All exterior lighting is LED with cab day time running lights, front marker lights and Swift Group’s exclusive LED rear light clusters that not only look good, they give better visibility too. Inside is a complete transformation.  New Oyster Grey curved upper locker doors have a lower gloss ‘Aralie Sen’ inlay which complements the warm white kitchen lockers and gives an extra feeling of light and space.  Chrome accents run though with a chrome strip in the lockers doors, push button catches, sockets and a new backlit entrance door handle.


  • At the top of the range is enhanced black edition Kon-Tiki. Both the Bolero and Kon-Tiki feature the all new superb new Swift Command control system which includes a downloadable app to allow control and/or monitoring of several Motorhome functions.

  • The Autocruise panel van range comes in 4 popular layouts and is still a firm favourite due to its high specification and excellent value for money.

  1. I am looking into motor homes right now, and while I won't be able to buy anything nearly as fancy as these, they're great inspiration and certainly have me more excited.
