Some caravanners get a little sniffy about special-edition caravans, recalling little that was meaningful offered in the ‘special’ asking price above and beyond different trim.

But the latest crop of dealer specials are just that – special – and the Swift Freestyle SE range offered by Midlands dealership Lowdhams is a case in point. It’s based on the popular Sprite, so it’s modern, lightweight and aimed at first-timers or young families.

There are six models, ranging from two-berths to six-berths, plus a range-topping twin-axle with a French bed and end washroom. The model we’re looking at, the Swift Freestyle SE S 6 TD, is probably the most family-friendly of the lot. It’s one of two models in the line-up to not feature a full-width end washroom (the other being the French bed S 4), and while it can sleep six, it’s likely to appeal to young families with two children.

The Freestyle SE S 6 TD is noticeably dearer than the standard Sprite Major 6 TD (RRP £15,525), but the specification is much higher and claims to offer more than £1300-worth of kit for the asking price.
