In 2018, the Major 6 won at Practical Caravan's Awards and represents a brilliant prospect for families looking for a touring caravan. The 6-berth with it's light-weight bodyshell utilising the latest SMART+ construction techniques from Swift offers a fixed bunk, side-dinette, separate washroom layout without the requirement of a large tow vehicle. For the 2018 season the range was redesigned from front to back, GRP panels front and rear took their cues from the higher specification caravans in the Swift range and added to the dynamic appeal of Sprite. Along with the external updates, including exclusive design rear LED light clusters, the interior design also got a significant make over and for this season, the improvements continue.
Previous years Aralie Sen wood veneer and white faced upper lockers were complemented by slate grey worktops throughout, highlighted with a multitude of LED lighting in the form of strips above the upper lockers and handy spot-lights below. Additional storage is available upper lockers including those added either side of the optional Panoramic Sunroof last year. At the front, you'll now find USB sockets for all your devices power needs and in the kitchen, the addition of a secondary 230v socket as well as easier access to both sockets above the 2018 season's newly introduced sweeping shelf, which keeps smaller items away from the main food prep' area.
For 2020, you'll now find fresh exterior decals and on the inside, the new 'Langholme' upholstery scheme and stainless steel sink.
This is a deceptively spacious tourer, and though not the longest in the Sprite range, can easily accomodate a family of six. Two wardrobes (one to the front, a full height one to the rear) along with multiple upper lockers and other storage options allow you to maximise the available payload in a safe and evenly spread manner. To the rear, you'll find a corner washroom with separate lined shower cubicle, Belfast-style sink and a Thetford electric flush toilet. Opposite the washroom, twin fixed bunks and the lower one has space underneath for storage that's accessible via an external door, meaning muddy shoes don't have to be trailed through the caravan(!) The practical kitchen has twin 230v sockets along with a microwave (part of the optional 'Diamond Pack') and a Dometic 3-way fridge/freezer and Thetford gas oven, grill and 3-hob burners. Above the entrance door, you'll find the controls for the Truma CP+ heating system alongside the new Swift Command touchscreen panel. In the front, parallel seating lounge, ahead of the central chest, you'll find twin USB sockets on the new pod, which has a cut away to hold your smartphone while charging.
