Swift at the NEC: What to expect at the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2017

At Swift we’ve been working on the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2017 for months and we’re so excited that the day is finally upon us.

We’ve got loads of really amazing things to show you at Britain’s No1 leisure vehicle show (October 17th to 22nd). 

Read on for the highlights…

Swift at the NEC
We’ll showcase our 2018 caravans, motorhomes and holiday homes – which include a number of winners from the prestigious Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome Awards. 

The NEC is one of the UK’s biggest exhibition spaces, and Swift will take up Hall 6 in its near entirety.

Practical Caravan award-winners 
Earlier this year Swift won several Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome awards. These 2018 winners will be the stars of our NEC show. Highlights include…  

Tourer of the Year – Sprite Major 6
Major research and development has gone into the 2018 Sprite, with a complete inside and outside redesign. We wanted to build on its excellent reputation as an entry level caravan by adding sophisticated premium touches. See the Sprite range 

Motorhome of the Year – Escape 604
We’re really proud of our new Escape 604. Our design team worked hard to deliver a 4 berth and 4 seatbelt family motorhome at under 6 metres in length. For rural roads, the length issue is crucial. See the Escape range

Best Motorhome for Couples - Bessacarr 599 
We completely reimagined our high-end Bessacarr range with a fully redesigned interior and coloured cab. Choose the 599 Lounge option for a long and luxurious motorhome that you can drive on a regular licence (thanks to its 3.5 tonne weight).  See the Bessacarr range 

Best Specialist Tourer - Swift Basecamp
Basecamp was the star of our NEC show last year. The cool-crossover camping vehicle is aimed at outdoorsy types with a design straight from the lakes and fells. This year we updated it with slick new alloy wheels and a clip-on Vango awning to boost space.  See the Basecamp 

Hello, Airstream! 
Swift is the official UK distributor for Airstream and it will be launched at the NEC show on October 17th. Airstream is an American legend – built for the great outdoors and instantly recognisable. Be sure to stop by the Swift stands to see this automotive icon! See Airstream 

Happy glamping with S Pod 
With staycations on the rise, glamping has never been bigger. Our S Pods are pitch-perfect for anyone wanting to escape the hustle-bustle and get back to nature – without forfeiting their crucial creature comforts. See S Pod

Set for another landmark year 
'Last year’s NEC show was a record breaker,’ says Swift Commercial Director Nick Page. 

‘We enjoyed our best-ever sales performance for touring caravans, and almost achieved record sales for motorhomes too. We’re expecting this year’s show to be another great success. 

‘We’ve had a great 2017 at Swift, bringing our different brands under the single Swift badge and winning a handful of awards – including the sought-after Practical Caravan Tourer of the Year for our completely redesigned Sprite, and equally sought-after Motorhome of the Year for the Escape 604. 

‘We’re looking forward to seeing faces familiar and new at the NEC. Our Swift experts will be on hand to help you find your perfect caravan.’
