Take a damp meter with you... Yes even on a new one..
and check all the windows as our windows leaked from 12 months old and I am sure they were incorrectly fitted at the factory
2 join Swifttalk and check any owners problems there

There should be no damp issues with a 2014 model Swift if the new SMART construction is as good as they say it is. Watch the video's on the Swift website and i'm sure you'll be impressed.

We have the 2012 major 6

love it.

not really had any issues with it, other than they scatter sockets and switches about in the most stupid of places...so had to modify a few.

would have another without hesitation..in fact its our 2nd sprite

although that said we will need to get the front window changed on warranty as the outer has touched the inner and we are getting a smiley face as it rubs when we are traveling. Had to do the same on the last one, so i know the drill.

I've just ordered a new sprite major 6TD. Got what i think is a good deal: 3 free services, 19"LED tv/dvd with freeview,maxview omnisat satelitte kit, wheel clamp, powrtouch mover,£100 shop voucher,sunroof,exterior bbq point, exterior 240v socket, alarm, Alko s3004 stabiliser & Alko wheel lock all for £15,500 with March delivery.

Layout seems ideal for our two boys with the fixed bunks

Love our 2010 Major 6, suits us just fine. I'd love to swap it for a 6TD though, as the triple bunk bed doesn't leave much headroom - fine for pre-teens though.

2014 will find us at:
Fforest Fields
Spineuse
Münstertal
4 Vents
and as many varied weekends as possible

We hace swift ace courier 2013 which is basically a major 6 but with a few extras as a dealer special. Gutted I didnt wait another year to buy due the the smart construction. Saying that would have another one without any issue. The only thing I would say is check your weights as unless you have a heavy kurbwight car you may struggle( SAYING THAT WEIGHTS HAVE REDUCED WITH SMART CONSTRUCTION)
have had a few things done under warranty but handled well and in a timely manner

We have a sprite quattro and love it. If I was getting a new van I would wait for swift to incorporate the new smart HD construction method throughout all their ranges as then there will be no wood to rot.
