Notes

On the road (OTR) price includes a recommended cost of £1,495.00 to cover delivery to dealer in Great Britain, number plates (inc. VAT), 12 months road fund licence and first registration fee. Recommended retail price list for 2017 models effective from 1st September 2016.

This price list supersedes all previous price lists. The Swift Group Limited (Swift) reserves the right to alter specifications and prices at any time as materials and conditions demand. Distributors and dealers sell Swift products on their own account and not as agents of Swift. Accordingly, they have no authority to bind Swift or to make any representation or undertaking whatsoever on behalf of Swift.

Price Effective from 1st September 2016

  1. The Maximum User Payload includes:
    1. the conventional load (this is the allowance for passengers)
    2. essential habitation equipment (items and fluids required for safe and proper functioning of habitation equipment)
    3. optional equipment (items available from the manufacturer over and above the standard specification)
    4. personal effects (those items not covered by the above)
  2. The Mass in Running Order is the mass of the unladen vehicle including a 75kg allowance for the driver plus engine coolants and 90% of the fuel tank capacity and 1 x 6kg Calor Lite LPG cylinder.
    The MRO is calculated with the fresh water tank empty. If you travel with water in the fresh water tank then the payload will reduce accordingly.
  3. Please take care to ensure that you have allowed for the masses of all items you intend to carry in the motor caravan, e.g. passengers, optional equipment, essential habitation equipment and personal effects, such as clothing, food, pets, bicycles, sailboards, sports equipment etc.
  4. Warning - under no circumstances should the maximum technical permissible laden mass of this motor caravan be exceeded.

* Estimated

** For optional roof ladder add 125mm to length and 40mm to height on low-line.

# Please note that the additional weight of the tow bar and trailer nose weight increases the rear axle loading of the motor home so care should be taken that the rear axle load is not exceeded when towing. To ensure adequate road holding, the load on the front axle, under all conditions, must not be less than 40% or more than 70% of the total weight. Care must be taken when distributing loads. The loadings and weights above are maximums and must not be exceeded under any circumstances.

With this vehicle configuration it will be necessary to reduce the payload carried inside the van when towing to ensure that the MTPLM and maximum axle loads are not exceeded.

The maximum trailer weight is limited by the gross train weight which must not be exceeded. For example if the vehicle is at the maximum MTPLM of 3700kg, then the maximum trailer weight possible is 1800kg. Reducing the weight of the vehicle by removing payload, will allow you to increase the trailer weight up to a maximum of 2000kg.
