Swift Group scoop more awards than any other manufacturer at the MMM 2010 Awards

Continuing the Swift Group’s awarding winning success, the already multi-award winning Escape 686 has been named the Budget Rear Lounge Coachbuilt of the Year by Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly (MMM), at its prestigious 2010 Awards. This adds to the acclaim this model has already received by winning the 2009 Caravan Club Design and Drive Award for Motorhomes.

The MMM awards, in association with the Caravan Club, recognise the best of the Motorhome industry and in awarding the Escape 686, MMM wrote ‘A versatile motorhome at an excellent price. Build quality is of the usual Swift standard. It’s just that none of the little luxury details are there. It’s just basic, yet with all the important essential equipment. This model’s rear U-shaped lounge is massive, offering a big double bed, with a further two doubles (front dinette and overcab). With six seatbelts, this can be a great family ’van or offer plenty of space for a couple who intend to take the grandkids away.’

The range also received two further awards with the Escape 624 claiming the Highly Commended Budget Family Motorhome of the Year and the Escape 664 being Highly Commended in the Budget Fixed bed Motorhome of the Year category.

Launched early in 2009 to fill a gap in the motorhome market at a time of recession, the Escape range is designed to offer a well equipped modern style motorhome for just over £30,000 and this formula has proved to be one of the biggest outright successes of 2009 with the 4 model range capturing a 15% share of the overall market and become the biggest selling single range.

Bessacarr motorhomes were also awarded with the E410 being Highly Commended in the Front Lounge Coachbuilt of the Year category.
