Sprite brand extended with new Lite range
Designed to complement the stunning new Sprite range, the new Sprite Lite is even lighter and more affordable, the first 3 models will be launched alongside the new Sprite range at the Motorhome and Caravan Show at the NEC, Birmingham from October 11 to 16.
The new Sprite Lite range carries the original 1949 Sprite values of practical, lightweight and affordable caravans close to its heart and provides the ideal entry point for anyone looking for their first new caravan.
It is also ideal for those people who enjoy camping but are looking for a more substantial, comfortable and warm place to stay or simply those wanting an exceptional value, lightweight caravan with MTPLM’s starting at only 1039kg and prices from £9910.
The new range has smart graphics on one-piece 5000 series marine grade aluminium side walls, which improve impact resistance, a ¾ height front panel in closed mould GRP with large opening window and laminated rear panel with moulded ABS light housing. Hankook branded tyres with a minimum of 150kg extra load margin give improved performance and safety.
Refreshing interior design has modern fabrics and streamlined furniture in ‘Mail Acacia’ woodgrain.
Features normally found on more expensive models include positive catches on locker doors for secure storage on the move, a generous width of 7’4½ ” and 6’5” headroom, granite effect moulded kitchen sink, seat bases with sprung beech slats and dual fuel water heating.
The Truma UltraStore water heater now has two 230V settings – 850W and 1300W for rapid heat up. Room heating is via a Truma 3kW gas space heater with auto ignition.
Kitchens are practically equipped with a Smev 2 burner hob and grill and 112 litre manual ignition fridge. There is also provision for a microwave oven.
Floors are covered in scratch resistant floor lino throughout and lighting is via halogen ceiling and downlighters.
Washrooms provide the basic necessities with a wash basin and Thetford C200 toilet with independent tank and manual flush.
The three models are the Sprite Lite 2 with wrap round seating and rear walk-in washroom, the Sprite Lite 4 with front parallel seating and fixed rear bed and the Sprite Lite 5 with front parallel seating and rear dinette which makes up into either a single or double bed with bunk over.
