The award-winning Swift Elegance and Sterling Continental remain at the pinnacle of caravan design and construction for 2016. This season sees these stunning ranges optimized even further with impressive new features and enhancements.
The ranges continue with 5 single axles and two twin axles. Inside the soft furnishings are more luxurious in leather and SwiftShield, a clever fabric with a suede like appearance that is treated during manufacturing to resist stains. It simply cleans using water and a damp cloth.
The new Elegance Scheme is called ‘Winchester Stone’ which has an opulent feel with mink toned leather used for the top of the backrest and front of the seat base cushion, an oyster infill in SwiftShield fabric is used for the seating. There are scatter cushions in faux fur effect and also an etched hexagonal pale gold and metallic oyster design that ties in with the curtains.
The new Continental Scheme is called ‘Winchester Black’. A monochrome scheme, it features bedding with black leather accents to the top of the backrest, the rest of the backrest and the seat base cushion has a warm grey infill in SwiftShield fabric. Stylish black curtains have a silvery grey honeycomb pattern and it all ties in beautifully with the off white locker doors with their smoked oak effect, gloss woodgrain insert and matt graphite kitchen doors.
Another practical addition is the modification of the handy chopping and draining board so they nestle neatly together for easy storage.
There is also the new Swift Command control system which includes an intelligent power supply unit and a smart new LCD control panel that allows viewing of enhanced control panel functions. There is also an exciting Swift Command app that can be downloaded to Smartphones and Tablet which enables the user to remotely control and/or monitor certain vehicle systems either inside the vehicle using a Bluetooth interface (BLE), or remote from the vehicle (providing that there is a signal or wi-fi available).
Other small enhancements include an on/off button for the new Ecocamel Orbit shower head, an increased solar panel size to 80W, a travel lock for the TV bracket, swivel spout on vanity taps for improved use and an upgraded hail resistant GRP roof. Fixing bars have also been added to the back panel to allow a Thule rear mounted cycle rack to be fitted by the owner. Another new feature for the 2016 season is the addition of LED side lights.
The SMART HT construction is still unrivalled with its completely timberless bodyshell, including the floor. It is fully engineered to make it consistent, reliable and repeatable time after time.
Such is the advance in design and construction many elements have been filed with the UK patent office. If you missed the full details on SMART HT earlier this year, full details can be found at www.swiftgroup.co.uk/smartht where there is also a video to view.
Nick Page, Swift Group Commercial Director commented, ‘The Swift Elegance and Sterling Continental are still unmistakeably our flagship ranges. Subtle finishing touches, a very high level of specification and the overall luxury interior design set them apart. They remain the ranges to aspire to and continue to receive overwhelmingly positive feedback.’
