Swift Super Sprite Caravans

The 2021 Swift Super Sprite has been redesigned last year. So I assume it’s not a 2021 redesign, but a 2020 (last year redesign, or even a 2019?) Anyway, at some point it was redesigned. Super Sprites are an 8ft wide range and, along with every other caravan in Swift’s range, one of their best sellers. I don’t have anything against Swift, but every manufacturer says every model is their most popular.

As you can see the interior of the Swift Super Sprite is very pleasing to the eye. No bright orange, deep red or even green, but a lovely beige. Now a 30 year old me would be screaming and how dull, boring and “old fashioned” it was. But now? Well, to me it looks cosy and welcoming!

These are probably considered Swift entry level caravans, it doesn’t mean they are “cheap” though, as in inferior quality. They start from £21,365 and have a layout to suit just about everyone, except me 🙂 The DB and FB are aimed squarely at families with the inclusion of a dinette.

As with all manufacturers with their “entry level” caravans, some compromises are made on the finishing. Actually, when I say compromises, they use materials and finishings that look cheaper than their top of the range siblings. Naturally, the top end caravans might not be to your taste, or budget. The Sprites offer a great way to sample the joys of caravanning without having to sell a kidney, or indeed, a child.

You could argue there’s not a lot in the way of “luxury”, that would depend on your definition of luxury! Simple, neutral and no fuss interiors are the order of the day.

Sprite Super is constructed with Swift’s industry-leading SMART technology for improved moisture resilience, aerodynamics, strength and aesthetics, with a 10-year manufacturer bodyshell warranty.
