Swift Group reports good start to 2010

Demand for the company's vehicles is reaching pre-recession levels

Britain’s largest caravan and motorhome manufacturer has recorded sales of £2.5 million in four days.

The Swift Group recorded the figures after sales at the Manchester Central Caravan and Motorhome Show.

The statistics show that demand for caravan holidays in the country remains strong, with many holidaymakers looking to keep up the ‘staycation’ trend.

According to the manufacturer, demand for the company’s caravans and motorhomes is almost back to pre-recession levels.

The group says that sales figures were enhance by record numbers of visitors during the last two days of the show, but it usually provides an early indication of how the year will progress.

Swift Group commercial director Nick Page expressed his delight at the latest sales figures.

“With January sales bucking the weather and VAT increase and with clear indications of the family buyer returning to the market, demand now looks even more positive for 2010,” Mr Page said.

The Swift Group recently won four awards at the Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly’s 2010 Awards ceremony.
