THERE ARE FEW people better qualified than our own Andrew Jenkinson to give a verdict on the 2012 Sprite. Jenko is what could commonly be called 'a bit wrong' such is his love of all things caravanning.

THERE ARE FEW people better qualified than our own Andrew Jenkinson to give a verdict on the 2012 Sprite. Jenko is what could commonly be called 'a bit wrong' such is his love of all things caravanning.

 

As well as having a book out shortly on the history of Sprite, Jenko is a big fan of the brand and has the brochures of every model since the 1960s. Really.

 

With the vans launched at the NEC, we pinned him down to find out what he thinks of the 2012 Sprite range. It's completely revamped and in a new bodyshell which gives it a similar look and feel to its siblings in Swift Group's posher touring ranges.
