October brought with it this years caravan awards ceremonies, and showed continued dominance of the ‘big two’ Swift and Bailey.
The Swift Conqueror was as popular as ever with the Swift Group as a whole securing £28 million of advanced bookings across the range at the International Caravan and Motorhome show, a £10 million increase on the previous year! The Swift Conqueror 630 itself picked up the prestigious ‘Tourer of the Year Award’
Commercial Director of the Swift Group, Nick Page commented on these results as well as the record attendances at the NEC.
“The results at the show exceeded our wildest expectations and gives us more confidence for the whole of 2010. The mixture of existing owners coming back into the market and a large number of younger couples and families spending their holiday money on our products for the first time is really positive news going forward,”
The eagerly awaited Bailey Pegasus was also unveiled, arguably stealing the show with its new innovative Alu-Tech body shell design. It not only picked up awards for innovation but also the Which? Magazine and Practical Caravan Magazine ‘Caravan of the Year’ Awards. This popularity was emphasized by record sales of nearly £8 million which represented over 60% of Baileys total sales across all ranges!
