Sprite Major 4 FB (2016)

Tuesday, 11, Aug 2015 02:57

The single-axle Sprite Major 4 FB sees a range of enhancements from the Swift Group for 2016.

Sporting four berths with a front dinette, fixed side double bed, a side kitchen and a full-end washroom.

Aiming to appeal to buyers who want a more affordable, lightweight tourer, this fixed-bed caravan boasts a fresh and modern layout that is accentuated by the introduction of three opening windows replacing the previous model's single window.

New graphics and screen printed Seitz C6 windows with graphite grey tint complete the more upmarket feel, whilst side marker running lights are now LED.

The interior of the Major 4FB for 2016 has seen enhancements made by way of new 'Elodie' soft furnishings featuring warm grey woven seat fabric with complimentary curtains in an abstract leaf designs in shades of grey, lime green and charcoal. A carpet boundary has been designed for the kitchen area to allow for easier cleaning. The current optional 'Darwin' scheme continues for the 2016 season.

In the kitchen there should be everything you need to see you on your way, whilst an option is available for a microwave oven.

Also inside, comes the introduction of low energy LED lighting throughout, as well as vanity taps with swivel functionality for ease of use within the bathroom and the introduction of the Ecocamel Orbit shower head with on-off button for better water conservation.

Built using Swift's award-winning SMART intelligent construction system, this has also been enhanced for the new season to SMART Plus, which includes three key enhancements: 1. A new sandwich floor construction with GRP outer skin providing greater durability for the elements. The floor is still framed with Pure for additional strength and for fixing to the chassis and the walls. All outer surfaces are now made from non-hygroscopic materials. 2. The roof has now also been upgraded and is now in hail resistant GRP and 3. The front window jig is now a full GRP and foam construction, reducing the amount of parts in the panel for extra protection.

For extra thermal insulation, the Truma Combi boiler remains, with a new digital control panel for ease of use in order to control the heating and hot water on this Grade 3 classification model.
