In a nationwide poll of caravan enthusiasts run by Caravan Times, the UK's largest online magazine for touring enthusiasts, Swift Group won the Innovation award for their new SMART construction method and the Sprite range won the new Lightweight Caravan category in the 2013 Caravan of the Year Awards.
The Innovation Award is given to those that have come on leaps and bounds in innovation and Swift Group's SMART Construction beat off strong competition from Lunar with their new Core technology and Baileys move into Motorhomes.
The new SMART intelligent construction system was launched in September 2013 across the entire UK touring caravan ranges. SMART is based on proven technology and provides a Strong timber-less body frame with Modern desirable looks and a leading Aerodynamic shape that is Resilient to moisture, all wrapped up in a Caravan that has undergone the most comprehensive Testing.
The multi-award winning Sprite range was also voted winner of the new Lightweight Caravan of the Year category by the readers of CaravanTimes. The Sprite range, which recently also won Scottish Caravanners ‘Best Caravan upto £16,000’ category, has been a popular favourite with families for many years and continues to represent the best value for money in its class.
After winning the category with the Swift Challenger SE the previous two years, the new popular, mid-range Sterling Eccles SE with its perfect combination of style and specification narrowly missed out in the 'Caravan of the Year' category.
Nick Page, Swift Group Commercial Director commented: "Winning these awards bears testament to the time and effort we take in developing our products. SMART intelligent construction bears the ethos of what we want to achieve for all our products going forward. Our customers can be confident that this significant change will enhance the quality and longevity of their purchase."
