Award-winning Sprite goes super-size with wider Sprite Super

Award-winning Sprite goes super-size with wider Sprite Super

The Swift Group is broadening its horizons with a new 8ft wide version of its best-selling Sprite range – the sensationally spacious Swift Sprite Super. 

 Sprite Super will be launched at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show on February 20th and will have the widest and most spacious front parallel lounge of any caravan on the market. 

You can really stretch out in the Sprite Super thanks to a new design that’s around eight inches wider than the current Sprite with an extra seven inches between seats. The Sprite Super is 2.46m (8’ 1”) compared to the 2.25m (7’ 4”) wide Sprite. 

It comes amid growing demand from caravanners for more spacious caravans. 

“We’ve listened to our customers and made Sprite, the UK’s best-selling caravan range, even better,” says Swift Group Commercial Director Nick Page. 

But what have Swift’s designers done with all of that additional space? 

People can enjoy a more spacious living area and mid-dinette with wrap-around seating, larger beds, washroom and additional storage. The Sprite Super is perfect for families or anyone seeking extra space. 

Sprite Super – key features 

  • Widest and most spacious front parallel lounge on the caravan market 
  • Larger mid-dinette with wrap-around seating 
  • Larger beds for stretching out in 
  • Spacious washroom with dedicated shower 
  • A powerful Truma Combi 6 to boost heating 
  • Additional storage space including second wardrobe 

A key challenge with the extra space created in the Sprite Super was to ensure all year round warmth and comfort. In conjunction with Truma, the powerful Truma Combi-6 boiler was selected for faster and more efficient heating than is available in similar sized caravans. Swift is one of only a few manufacturers who use cold chamber testing, and Sprite Super easily achieved Grade 3 classification. 

Other features include the freestanding telescopic table in mid-dinette; extra wide access gas locker door with two compression locks; and the wider front chest of drawers with slide out extending top. “We’ve taken our award-winning Sprite and opened it up,” says Nick Page at Swift. 

“Our designers responded to the brief with excellence – ingeniously increasing the width of Sprite to create an unrivalled parallel lounge with clever storage and spacious kitchen and dining area with wrap-around seating for informal family meals.” 

Different layouts 

There are two twin-axle Sprite Super models with similar layouts, except for different rear-bed configurations. 

  • Sprite Super Quattro DB comes with bunk beds at the back 
  • Sprite Super Quattro FB comes with a fixed bed at the back 

Both models benefit from larger front beds and fixed beds. The front seating can be made up into either a double bed (225cm x 180cm / 7’ 4” x 5’ 11”) or two single beds (180cm x 73cm / 5’ 11” x 2’ 5”). 

The best of Sprite built-in 
The Sprite Super is the latest development in what has been an exciting period for Swift Sprite. The range was completely redesigned both inside and out for the 2018 season with a new retro design with a modern, fresh and youthful feel. 

The redesign was bestowed with the ultimate honour when Swift Sprite was named Tourer of the Year 2018 by Practical Caravan for the Sprite Major 6. 

Editor Niall Hampton said: "From front to back, and everything else in between, our Tourer of the Year has been transformed for 2018. This is an already excellent product that has been made better in every area.” 

The Sprite Super has a similar layout and feature-set to the award-winning Major 6. Highlights include: 

  • Aerodynamic profile designed to be fuel efficient 
  • Sweeping front panel with wide access gas locker door and triple window design 
  • Improved visibility with LED high level marker and brake lights 
  • Overhead lockers in matt white with chrome handles 
  •  Duvalay mattress on all fixed beds 

Like all Swift caravans, the Sprite Super comes as standard with features that make your life easier and give you peace of mind. 

SMART construction, the UK’s leading modern build system; Swift Command, an app based vehicle management system to remotely control many of the vehicle’s functions; Swift Command Tracker, a pre-installed Thatcham Category 6 approved proactive tracker with option to subscribe; and Connect Direct, an exclusive online customer service account for new owners with a host of benefits including access to information 24/7 and service history reminders.
