SPRINTAWAY

We make these claims for the hand-built, British made Sprintaway

We believe the Sprintaway is the best and most thoughtfully designed caravan ever built - it's design is truly revolutionary. The Sprintaway has the lowest centre of gravity helping towards being the safest and best towing caravan on the market. We believe it has considerably more storage and food preparation surfaces than any other caravan in it's class, and has (by far) the most comfortable seats and beds. The Sprintaway's compact dimensions means it can be stored in most domestic garages, go under most height barriers and be economical to tow (free on the French Autoroutes!) furthermore, the Sprintaway is no wider than a small car so you won't need to mess about with extra mirrors!

We invite you to make an appointment to view the unique, British made, hand built Sprintaway in person to see for yourself just how special this little caravan really is!

Please note; the Sprintaway is no longer in production. Details below as at September 2009. Second-hand Sprintaways sometimes available.

"Sprintaway Lux"
Caravan Club awards 2006 - to date

In 2006 the new Sprintaway caused somewhat of a stir in the caravan industry when it won it's class, "Folding Caravans and Pop Tops', in the Caravan Club's prestigious 'Lightweight Leisure Trailer Award'. It appears that it enjoyed a comfortable win. Unfortunately, The Caravan Club has had to cancel this class for 2007 as none of our competitors seem prepared to offer their models for evaluation! You will no doubt draw your own conclusions from this, as we have...

And another accolade, this time from "Caravan Magazine"
The Sprintaway won outright "Best Build Quality 2007" (with maximum marks possible) and jointly won the "Best Value for Money" class.
Shouldn't you take a look to see what all the fuss is about?

Quotes from the Caravan Club Magazine April 2006;
"It is rare nowadays that we can say we have something new in the way of a caravan, but Wheelhome's Sprintaway is a wonderfully thought-out and engineered micro caravan that is certainly something very new indeed. ……. Ingenious piece of design……...Wheelhome's concept is to make life as easy as possible….. A brilliant piece of caravan design and engineering" To achieve this fresh approach Wheelhome threw the conventional 'rule' book an awful long way away, please read on…….
