In an attempt to retain their share of the market, manufacturers tend to increase the specification of their caravans year-on-year. That’s fine if you’re looking at the mid and upper sectors, but can be a problem at entry level, because you can bet there’ll be a price increase too.

That has been the case with Sprite; Swift’s entry-level range. They’ve progressively moved more and more upmarket, to the point that they’re now possibly more mid-market, especially if a couple of the option boxes are ticked.

Enter the new Sprite Freedom range that’s been launched for the 2016 season. Still built using the SMART Plus construction, but with a spec (and price) aimed at first-time buyers. Here we review the six-berth FB. And to see other Sprite caravans for sale, click here.
