The Swift Group has responded to the growing demand for a contemporary design of holiday home that provides owners and renters with modern indoor/outdoor living accommodation with the launch of an all new three model Auvergne range.
On show for the first time at the Caravan and Motorhome Show at Event City in Manchester on 19-22 January, the new range increases the company’s coverage of a market in which Swift has become the fastest growing brand and the third largest manufacturer.
The new Auvergne models have a trendsetting new exterior with a single span angled roof, bonded “sandwich” construction exterior walls, feature cladding in a textured Steel finish and Thermaglas uPVC double glazing, providing improved structural strength and better insulation.
Feature, full height tri-fold doors in the lounge/dining area provide modern ‘outdoor/indoor living’ and flood the interior with daylight, highlighting the modern interior treatment.
The floor plans for these new models make the most of combining the lounge and dining areas into one large space which also includes an open plan kitchen. Flooring throughout the living area is practical vinyl wood effect with contemporary rug. Bedrooms have quality 1300gsm carpet.
Free standing sofas with scatter cushions, one of which converts into a sofa bed, modern LED down lighting, vertical window blinds with partial curtains, a Swivel TV & entertainment unit for the latest sound and TV equipment on two models and provision for a wall fixed flat screen of up to 32” on the FL model, all add to the modern lifestyle feel.
The kitchen has contemporary Gloss Miracosa finish handleless doors, a 1.5 bowl sink, quality oven and grill with stainless steel cooker hood. The work top space is illuminated by task lighting under kitchen lockers and the double door fridge/freezer is fully integrated.
Domestic style gas central heating and hot water system are both efficient and quick to heat up and come with a 24 hour timer.
Well dressed bedrooms have the finishing touches of a large fabric headboard and lined curtains with tie backs and voiles. There is plenty of storage including under the gas strut assisted lift-up King Size bed.
Bathrooms have showers with thermostatic mixers, white porcelain suites and a useful shaver light and socket in the main bathroom.
Key options include ‘Impala’ stain resistant fabric, exclusive to Swift Group.
The new range features three layouts, a 35ft x 12ft two bed model, a 38ft x 12ft two bed centre lounge model and a 38ft x 12ft two bed FL (front lounge model). All models are built on the strong fusion galvanised chassis which comes with a 10 year warranty. Prices start from around £33,000 ex works.
“The new Auvergne models take Swift into a completely new market and clearly demonstrate the company’s ability to develop designs that set the trend for the market. They echo the “large open space” living theme that has become very popular in modern homes and bring the flexibility this use of space offers to the holiday home market. We are confident they will be one of our most successful ranges in 2012, Nick Page, Group Commercial Director commented.
