Swift introduces the new Sprite Freedom range for 2016, with uncompromised quality at a more affordable price than ever before

Swift’s highly popular and award-winning Sprite caravan range has been extended for 2016, with a new entry-level Sprite Freedom range.

Unveiled for the first time at Swift’s 2016 launch yesterday (23 July) in Hull, the new Sprite Freedom range will offer three well thought out six berth family-based models with everything you need to hit the road – ideal for first time buyers or those looking to buy their first new caravan alike.

The single axle Swift Sprite Freedom 6 comes with front parallel seating, a side dinette and kitchen, and end twin bunk and washroom with separate shower, whilst Swift’s other single axle offering for 2016 – the Freedom 6TD – will feature front parallel seating, side kitchen and washroom with separate shower, rear dinette with a bunk over and a rear sized fixed twin bunk. The third model in the new Swift Sprite Freedom range, the Freedom FB, will be Swift’s latest entry-level twin axle model, offering front parallel seating, side kitchen, side dinette, as well as a rear fixed bed and washroom.

Perhaps, the most exciting element of the new range, however, is price; CaravanTimes has heard through the grapevine that the new Sprite Freedom range looks set to be priced at around £2,000 less than the current Sprite range; a price point is, however, yet to have been officially announced.

Despite a reduction in price, it seems as though Swift hasn’t compromised on quality, with the three new models being constructed using Swift’s new SMART Plus technology, including a GRP hail-resistant roof, aerodynamic profile and sweeping blue graphics, bringing it up to date for the new season.

Inside the Sprite Freedom, a number of exceptional features have been added, including a Mali Acacia wood grain and French oak effect, as well as high impact scratch-resistant vinyl throughout. In the kitchen area, a granite effect sink, Thetford 112lt electronic refrigerator and a Thetford 3 burner hob and grill come as standard, along with chrome effect kitchen tap, all of which provide for a stunning, high quality appearance. Meanwhile, LED lighting is featured throughout, including adjustable spotlights in the lounge/sleeping area, kitchen locker header and ceiling and washroom lighting.

A Truma Combi Boiler with manual control will ensure a plentiful supply of water in the washrooms on all models, complete with simple but effective shower curtain.

Swift Group commercial director, Nick Page, commented on the new Sprite Freedom range saying: “With the Sprite Freedom ranges being even more affordable than the Sprite range, it is an ideal caravan for those looking to buy their first caravan but are on a limited budget or looking to buy their first new caravan.

“Customers needn’t worry about quality as Sprite Freedom comes with all Swift Group’s build reassurances including a ten-year bodyshell warranty.”
