Swift wins Tourer of the year 2018
Swift Sprite wins Tourer of the Year
The annual Practical Caravan Awards where held at Hampton Manor in Solihull on the 19th September.
What a night for Swift Leisure as it picked up top prise. The transformed Swift Sprite Major 6 won Tourer of the Year in the Practical Caravan Awards which is the most coveted award amongst a host of others.
So, what makes a Tourer of the Year?
"It might be an innovative layout, pioneering construction, dramatic styling or perhaps the ultimate in luxury," considers Niall. "Sometimes, however, a new van comes along that might not excel in any one particular area, but shows brilliance across the board.
"From front to back, and everything else in between, our Tourer of the Year has been transformed for 2018.
"The fresh, new interiors make this van even more of a pleasant place in which to spend family time, with materials and finishes that are well suited to the rigours of two-generation caravanning.
"This is an already excellent product that has been made better in every area, with a market segment-defying new look inside and out. The layout is nothing new, but that’s because it didn’t need changing.
"In a year when the whole brand has been successfully revamped, it seems fully appropriate that our winner comes from that stable.
"Congratulations to Swift Group for winning this year's top prize," he added, "but also to all our other class winners. The 2018-season shortlisted caravans, awnings and innovations were stronger than ever!"
