  1. Hoping someone can assist with this 2-part question with our Sprite Quattro EB. First part relates to the mixer tap at the kitchen sink. On out last trip it worked loose and I need to tighten it. I assume that I can do this purely by tightening a “nut” from underneath with perhaps an adjuster spanner (albeit in a very tight working space)? That leads onto the second part of my question...... To gain access to tighten the tap, I was looking at removing the narrow cutlery drawer between the fridge and the cooker. My problem here is that I can’t work out how to remove the
  2. On our Quattro EB the blind on the rear window won’t open easily. I’m wary of forcing the clip I’ve highlighted in the pics attached. Any advice on how they work. At first I thought the blind was sitting squint, but it seems the blue / grey surround panel Is off the plumb but probably not anything to do with the opening issue. Wish they’d fitted a blind the same as the rest of the van windows.
  3. Hi all Just a quick question before our maiden voyage in our 2009 Alpine 4. The attached shows our van has a toilet/shower combo, and as you can see there might be some patching up in terms of some of the sealing. So, 2 questions: 1 - how best to patch these joins up? 2- more conceptually, are there any sprays (adhesive or otherwise) that people recommend for the walls to assist with water resistance and the like, that can be used on the walls? Just trying to prolong the life of this as much as possible

  7. We are considering getting our first caravan. We are a family of four - two kids aged 5 and 2. We need a layout that provides us with a good sleeping arrangement so the kids can go to sleep while we relax! We also want a shower room that functions well (we don't want to rely on site facilities). Wardrobe storage is also important and a kitchen which is practical. We love the interior feel of the Adria and it is the Altea 552 DT Tamar that we are considering. We haven't seen one yet as the dealer is quite a distance away. If anyone has this van could you comment on the functio

  9. Hi Everyone, I'm in need of some help and advice with a CI Sprite Compact (early 1980's) pop top roof. The roof is suspended with gas struts and has vinyl sides (which are stapled in). The sun roof started to leak a few years ago the roof panel has warped and started to rot inside. The kitchen cupboard is suspended from the ceiling and that has started to pull away from where the wood has weakened. (The same with the main light fixture). I'm presuming the roof is wood (i'm guessing plywood) with a plastic or metal sheeting over the top then crimped over at the sides. Be
  10. We love our new van - it's doing a great job for the family and the months/years spent agonising over layout seem to have paid off (for now!). The only thing that lets it down is the build in the kitchen. I've had to screw back in the cutlery drawer runners and add tiny bolts to ensure the drawer stays on it's runners. We've also now got an oven that has come loose due to retaining screws working free. We don't drive over excessively bumpy roads and we have shock absorbers fitted. We've done about 3000 miles in the van this year but we didn't have these type of issues on our
  11. More of a rant than a question! Seven weeks ago I reported to the dealer that my Swift Sprite Major 6 had a huge crack in the rear panel, in the centre above the brake light right back to where it joins to the body, approx 12", it has also allowed water to penetrate to the inside of the 'van. The dealer, who at this point I would like to say have been fantastic, submitted a warranty claim to swift and this was apparently accepted. Swift are now trying to force the dealer to affect the repairs themselves. however. Having attempted such a repair previously (entire new rear panel) the
  12. Hi Everyone, Thanks for all your help and advice thus far. The caravan is coming along, and will hopefully be going away in it soon. The chassis on my Sprite compact (early 80's) has rusted and needs restoring. It's ok in terms of welds, towing, etc, it just needs looking after and repainting. I just wanted to check that this is what should be done; 1. Remove rust and old paint with wire brush 2. Treat the steel with rust eater (Does anyone recommend a brand and where to get it. I've seen KURUST in Halfords, but has anyone used it?) 3. Paint with rust resisting
  13. I have an old(ish) Sprite Alpine with a steel chassis. I am not sure of the age. The springs are of the combined spring and damper type, common to most modern cars. The springs are tired and the van sits low at the back when attached to a vehicle. The dampers still work. Has anyone any idea where I could get replacement springs or complete spring/damper assemblies from? They look really easy to replace and would stop the rear of the van grounding occasionally. Thanks!
  14. Hello everyone, Not been on here for a while, hope you are all well! Just been looking at the new Sprite range, it is more upmarket now - so Swift decided to tint the windows. Has anyone ordered a new 2016 sprite, can you still see in the windows from the outside? I like to check through the window before we leave to make sure everything is in order, but the tint maybe too much to see in! Thanks in advance Michael P. S. Example of Sprite windows attached
  15. Whilst in Kent, we called into a Swift dealer, and discussed a new 6 berth Sterling, and the lack of supply. The dealer said this is common and reflects a big increase in demand from families like us. As such it may be worth waiting until the new 2016 models arrived before purchasing. Our salesman noted the following changes he was aware of for 2016: The Challenger Sport and Challenger SE models are likely to merge into one, staying broadly similar in layout and build, with the option to upgrade the heating and other aspects to differentiate the features each buyer prefers. The Ste
  16. 2nd day of project Alpine. Yesterday I picked up a 1970s sprite Alpine 4 berth caravan. A steal as it was free. Same old story. . Left in a field all alone with a few animals for company for 5+ years. .. Why does it always start like this? Weather was poor yesterday (typical British summer weather) so all I did was power wash and remove interior curtains and cushions. Today a more thorough clean for assessment of potential problems. Slight damp but may be due to being left with window seals that had perished and front window open (easy for putting number plate in). Will hire a heat fa
  17. Hello All . . It's now that time of my life, moving from camping to caravanning. I'm looking for advice/tips and more importantly feedback on the following models: - Sprite Major 6 TD - Swift Challenger Sport 586 - Sterling Eccles Sport 586 We have one small child and are planning to add to our brood, hence this layout seems best fit for our need. Also one of the main factors influencing our choice is I'm 6'3" and as I've visited a couple of dealerships, this brand seems to allow me to stand inside the van without ending up looking like quasimodo ! We're split between buy

  21. Hi, I have a Sprite Musketeer TD 2010 and love the lay out, especially as our child is at the back so we can have a nice glass of wine with out disturbing him, (instead of being on the single bed on the side). Why isn't there a new model?, and nobody else seems to do this lay out - gutted wanted to upgrade this year, with what has to be one of the best layouts for families with only one child.

  23. Hi, My Daughter has recently become the proud owner of an old, 1989 Sprite Musketeer and although it is in pretty good condition for it's age, I need to re-paint the lower front section in matching grey. Does anyone know the code of colour name of this grey please? Also, whilst I'm here, asking questions, is it possible to get hold of the side stripes ( three colour fading) from anywhere? Your help would be most appreciated
  24. Dear All, ** WANTED - OWNER OF 1950/1960 SPRITE CARAVAN FOR BBC ONE SHOW FILM!!! ** We are on a quest to find an owner of a 1950/1960 Sprite Caravan to interview for a short film for The One Show on the history of the Sprite Caravan. We want to evoke some of the nostalgia created by the documentary - Caravan - A British Love Affair and bring it to The One Show audience. We would love to meet an individual or family that own a Sprite caravan and have either had it in the family for years, or have lovingly restored it to it's former glory. If you are that person, or know
