New Swift 2023 caravan ranges out now!
industry news / new caravans
The new Swift 2023 caravan ranges have now been released and with production finally back up to normal levels post-Covid, that’s two things to celebrate!
At Winchester Caravans and Motorhomes, we’re an approved Swift dealership. Swift is one of the country’s leading caravan manufacturers and they’ve updated their ranges to keep their models fresh, stay ahead of the crowd and keep their customers happy.
We will be taking delivery of the new 2023 models from the end of September, but if you’d like to find out more in the meantime, why not pop in for a chat and to peruse the brochures with us over a cuppa?
Don’t forget we’ll also be at the Caravan and Motorhome Show at the NEC Birmingham from 18-23 October and this will provide you with the ideal opportunity to have a look around some of the models and chat to our friendly sales team, who will be happy to offer advice and guidance to help you find the right model for you.
All new models have been treated to new external graphics to give them a fresh look, as well as a range of new internal finishes and some will also come with new diamond cut edge alloy wheels. All models will benefit from the addition of a flatbed microwave, angled vent boards for comfort, improved island beds and increased washroom cubicle sizes too.
Sprite / Sprite Grande / Sprite Compact
The Sprite (standard width) Sprite Grande (8ft-wide) and Sprite Compact (68cm shorter and 22cm narrower than the standard Sprite) offer great value for money as well as top quality.
The light, airy interior has three opening front windows, stylish Langholme soft furnishings and low energy LED lighting throughout, with features including the Truma blown air heating system, Duvalay Duvalite Apollo Luxe mattresses and an upgraded Dometic Series 10 fridge.
There are 11 layouts across the Sprite ranges and these have remained the same for the 2023 season. Sprite’s seven models cater for 2-6 people and offer a range of layouts including a choice of mid, side or rear washrooms and French, island, transverse or bunk bed options.
The Sprite Grande’s three models consist of one four-berth and two six-berths options. The four-berth Major 4 SB has a mid kitchen, transverse fixed island bed and a rear washroom, while the Quattro FB and DB (both six-berth) are very similar layouts with front lounge, mid kitchen, mid diner (which converts into a double bed) and rear side washroom. The main difference between the two is that the FB has a French bed to the rear, while the DB has bunk beds.
The Sprite Compact is two-berth and has one layout, offering a lounge/diner at the front, with two sofas that can either be used as two single beds for sleeping or be transformed into a double bed at night. There is storage space and a fridge freezer in the mid part of the caravan, with the washroom and kitchen on either side to the rear.
New features for the 2023 season include chrome grab handles, new internal decor and soft furnishings, new flatbed microwave and the addition of bluetooth and dab radio fitted as standard.
Challenger / Challenger Grande
The Challenger ranges have benefitted from a number of improvements for the new season. A lightweight flexible solar panel is a welcome addition and inside there’s new internal decor and soft furnishings, a boutique hotel-style uplift to washrooms, a new sunroof and surround, drip lighting around front lounge and sink units, a new kitchen splashback and bluetooth and dab radio as standard.
There is also a new SE pack that you can choose to add to any of the Challenger models. This will give you a range of additional features including an external shower point, atc trailer control, an omnivent in kitchen area, an internal water tank (twin axles only), folding garment rail in shower (model specific), a Truma mains water line, rain guards and mirrors on wardrobe door (model specific).
The Challenger range boasts four models accommodating 2-4 people. The body width has been increased from 7’4” to 7’6” to give a little more space and all models have front lounges that convert into doubles for sleeping.
The two-berth 480 is 6.66m in length, with a mid kitchen and rear washroom. The four-berth 560 is 7.54m in length, with a mid kitchen, leading onto a mid washroom and a rear bedroom with fixed island bed.

The Challenger Grande range offers five 8ft-wide models, four of which are four-berth, and new for 2023 - the 670 model, which is sixth-berth. Challenger Grande models are ideal for families with spacious interiors, bigger beds and additional storage. The new 670 is 7.98m long and it has a front lounge with seating that converts into a double bed and a mid kitchen and washroom. There are also rear fixed bunk beds opposite a rear fixed French bed.
The 835 is 7.98m long and has a front lounge with sofas on each side that convert into a double bed. There is a mid kitchen, which leads onto the washroom, and a bedroom at the rear comprising a transverse island bed. The 850 is 7.98m in length and has L-shape lounge seating at the front which converts to a double bed for sleeping. The lounge leads onto a mid kitchen, followed by the washroom with the bedroom, fitted with an island bed, at the rear.
The 860 is slightly smaller than the 850 with a length of 7.54m, but a very similar configuration and layout. The 880 is also 7.54m long and has a front lounge with opposing sofas like the 835. There is a mid kitchen, which leads onto the bedroom with its transverse island bed and a washroom at the rear.
The Conqueror has had a significant upgrade for 2023 and some of the most impressive new features include, to the exterior, a re-styled rear panel with led light bar, a new exterior hartal door with deadlock, a flexible lightweight solar panel, external shower point and new offside awning light. On the inside it benefits from updated décor boards, an oven upgrade including cast iron frets, oven light and additional shelf and a wider shower room on the 480 and 580 models.
There are four models in the Conqueror range, all of which are single axle and 2.28m wide. The 480 measures 6.59m in length whilst the other three models are all 7.54m long. They all feature Alde heating, Swift Command and Swift Command Tracker, plus an onboard fresh water tank for added convenience.
The 480 is a two-berth with the lounge at the front which converts into a double bed, mid kitchen and rear washroom. The 560 is a four-berth and has the same front lounge, with a mid kitchen, mid washroom and an Island bed at the rear.
The 565 is a four-berth with a front lounge that converts into a double, a mid kitchen, two single beds beyond the kitchen and an end washroom. The 580 is also a four-berth and has the same front lounge, a mid kitchen, a transverse bed beyond the kitchen and a rear washroom.
The Elegance Grande range offers three 8ft-wide models, all four-berth and each offering very different layout options. The Elegance is all about luxury and premium quality, from the glamorous Brisa ULTRALEATHER upholstery scheme to the spa-like washroom and full height padded headboards. Other key features include an on-board fresh water tank, a dimmable LED lighting system and new underfloor heating.
New features for 2023 include a restyled rear panel with led light bars, two flexible lightweight solar panels (200w) and new exterior hartal door with deadlock to the exterior. Inside you can enjoy a new decor and soft furnishing scheme, a new integrated wireless charging point, a new l-shape kitchen with pull out baskets, a boutique hotel-style uplift to washrooms, additional USB sockets next to fixed beds and increased fixed bed length.
All three models are twin axles and measure 7.98m in length. They all have front lounges that convert to double beds and a kitchen in the middle of the van. The 835’s kitchen leads through to the washroom, with a transverse bed at the rear. The 845 has a transverse double bed and a rear washroom, and the 850’s kitchen leads onto a mid washroom with an island bed to the rear.
The Basecamp is a compact crossover camping vehicle, providing the ideal place to come back to at the end of a day packed full of activities. It has all you need to refuel and get a good night’s rest, and its compact, lightweight nature makes it easy to tow and manoeuvre.
For 2023, the Basecamp offers a range of improvements including a new flexible lightweight solar panel, additional external lighting, updated décor boards, additional light to lower bunks (model specific) and a folding garment rail in shower.
The Basecamp 6 has been discontinued so you now have the choice between the Basecamp 2 or the Basecamp 4, offering two and four berths respectively. The Basecamp 2 is 5.1m in length and the Basecamp 4 measures 5.59m long. Both have comfy beds, fully equipped kitchen and washrooms and a whole host of other creature comforts.
