Last season Swift Caravans where a wise choice with the new SMART intelligent construction system making them more robust to the elements and an excellent investment for the future. SMART was very well received and all ranges continue with this build for 2015.
Outside enhancements across the board include a new one piece exterior door with concealed hinges and flyscreen, exclusive Scorpion alloy wheels and new name decals.
Inside, all ranges get new 'Aralie Sen' woodgrain with a contemporary ashen brown hue, chrome sockets, switches and push button locker catches. New chrome vector taps can found in the kitchen and washrooms and a sliding shower bi-fold door which slides on tracks for improved use, can be locked down for transit. All ranges now benefit from the Duvalay Duvalite mattress on fixed beds.
Adding to the low energy lighting scheme, over locker lighting is changed from fluorescents to LED.
Challenger Sport models continue with their winning lightweight, amazing value formula and continue to be one of the UK’s best selling ranges.
New 'Zimba' soft furnishings are light and bright. A cream base fabric with dark brown thread running through ties in with the earthy brown stripe in the back rest and stylised flower in the curtain. Some of the flowers feature duck egg blue that is accented on the plain scatter cushions.
New locker pelmets and china locker header LED lights provide nice additional finishing touches.
The range continues with the key upgrades added last year including a 40W solar panel, Combi 4 or Combi 6 boiler, depending on the model and the Eco Camel shower head and hose which gives a more powerful shower. A new Dometic fridge 8 Series 110 litre fridge with removable freezer compartment, as found in the SE range, is fitted for 2015.
There’s an impressive choice of eight layouts including one twin axle model.
The Challenger SE range builds on the Sport range and now comes with gloss upper locker doors, dimmable LED spotlights and the new Alde 3020 boiler with improved operating functions in the control panel.
There is an additional down light over the end washroom illuminated mirror in response to customer feedback. Swift always like to incorporate feedback where ever possible.
New 'Opus' soft furnishings are again light and bright with a ribbed cream base fabric that sheens in the light. The backrest strip is soft matt velour in a toning colour that adds a different texture. Curtains, scatter and bolster cushions have a satin finish in pale gold with a blue geometric pattern to add warmth to the scheme.
To deter thieves the LED awning light now displays a red flashing light to show when the alarm is armed.
There are four twin axle layouts in the 9 model line up including the new 640 with parallel front lounge and rear island bed.
The Conqueror range continues with its distinctive aerodynamic exterior styling with classic white sides, new one piece exterior door and luxury feel.
It receives all the SE upgrades and continues with an already impressive specification including a more luxury bedding make up, double width curtains, external shower point, large 190 litre fridge freezer and internal water tank.
Challenger Sport and SE ranges have the option of 'Impala' stain resistant easy-clean seating fabric with a soft nubuck texture, unique to Swift Group. It now comes as standard in the Conqueror range.
The Gloss locker door finish is extended to the top chest doors and wiring provision has been made for the easy fitting of a motor mover.
The Conqueror range focuses on three proven models for 2015; two single-axle and one 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, "The new interior woodgrain gives the Swift range a more contemporary feel whilst retaining the warmth wood tones provide. Enhancements are based on customer feedback, which we listen to and act on wherever possible. We are delighted the new SMART construction system has been so well received and bears testament to the extensive research and testing Swift undertook."
