Swift is one of the best known names in the world of touring caravans and for 2014 all three ranges come with new SMART intelligent construction, making them more robust to the elements and an excellent investment for the future.
SMART Construction provides a Strong timber-less body frame with Modern desirable looks and a leading Aerodynamic shape that is Resilient to moisture, all wrapped up in a Caravan that has undergone the most comprehensive Testing.
The new timberless body frame uses PURe, a strong polyurethane material that is totally impervious to water and has been proven in use. The construction method prevents the transfer of moisture from the outside to the upgraded hardwood ply wall board making the caravan highly resilient to moisture. Everything is CNC (computer numerically controlled) cut to provide accuracy and consistency time after time to give a high quality engineered product. Thorough testing provides confidence for customers.
(For more details on SMART Construction see the SMART press release)
All models still comply with European Whole Vehicle Type Approval , have EN1645 Grade 3 classification for heating and insulation which is the highest available and the seal of assurance from Swift’s 10-year body integrity warranty.
For 2014 all models also come with quality branded, DMACK EcoXtra tyres. The EcoXtra tread pattern is specifically designed to provide low rolling resistance, which can deliver greater fuel economy.
Challenger Sport models continue with their winning lightweight, amazing value formula and continue to be one of the UK’s best selling ranges.
For 2014 there is a new ‘Maldives’ soft furnishing scheme. The seating fabric has a grey hue with warm threads running through the heavy weave of the fabric that links in closely with the colour of the Mali Acacia wood grain. The curtain and scatter cushions incorporate colour through a random abstract design.
All Swift ranges have the option of ‘Impala’ stain resistant easy-clean seating fabric with a soft nubuck texture, unique to Swift Group.
Specification enhancements include a 40W solar panel fitted as standard which gives greater independence and the Truma gas and 230V Combi-Boiler which efficiently delivers hot water and blown-air central heating has been upgraded to either the Combi 4 or Combi 6, depending on the model, to provide faster, more efficient heat up.
Practical removable carpets are now sectioned giving the flexibility to leave carpet in lounge areas and remove it from entrance door areas if required exposing the new French oak effect floor vinyl.
Other practical additions are the Eco Camel shower head and hose in the washroom which cleverly injects air directly into the water stream so you use less water while experiencing a more powerful shower, and new high security locks with convenient one key operation for all locks.
There’s an impressive choice of ten layouts including two twin axle models of which one is the new 640 – this is a 6 berth with front parallel seating and rear parallel seating with bunks over.
The Challenger SE range, launched last year has exceeded all expectations with sales way above those predicted.
For 2014 it continues to offer the ultimate in style and specification in this market sector, including Alde radiator central heating and also has the same specification enhances as the Sport range along with a list of extras.
An exciting new addition for 2014 and exclusive to the Swift Group, is the fitting of a ‘Duvalay Duvalite’ mattress in fixed bed layouts in both the SE and Conqueror ranges. Brought to recognition on Dragon’s Den and now backed by Hilary Devey, the ‘Duvalay Duvalite’ is a new innovative mattress made with lightweight memory fibre technology. This hypoallergenic fibre remains as comfortable as memory foam but has many other benefits. Helping eliminate heat retention it gives superior temperature harmony, excellent pressure relief and is durable and resilient. It is resistant to dust-mites and is 100% recyclable. Being ultra light weight it also contributes to significant weight savings.
With five twin axle layouts in the 10 model line up it also offers the ultimate in space . There is s new layout with L-shaped front seating in the 6 berth, twin axle 630 model which also has a fixed bed with large rear washroom.
The flagship Conqueror range with its distinctive aerodynamic exterior styling has classic white sides for 2014 and further interior refinements to enhance its luxury feel.
Again it has all the specification increases of the lower ranges with the addition of some new styling cues. The curved upper locker doors are now gloss ‘Mali Acacia’ with cream infills and chrome handles, there is a new decorative inlay in the washroom door and new design chrome kitchen and vanity mixer taps.
These detailed changes along with an already impressive specification including Alde radiator central heating system, 40W solar panel, luxury double width curtains, low energy LED lighting and external shower point provide the highest possible level of comfort linked to cutting edge design.
The Conqueror range continues with six proven models; four are single-axle and two twin-axle.
Recognising owners’ desire to protect their investment, all Swift group touring caravans again come fitted with a “TRACKER Retrieve” Thatcham approved tracking system. Many insurers offer discounts for trackers, and it could save customers several hundred pounds for fitting one later.
Swift Group Commercial Director, Nick Page commented, “We believe the new SMART construction makes the Swift brand the best designed and constructed touring caravan range on the market. Refinements in all ranges enhance already winning formulas to provide the best models to come out of the Swift stable. “
