Make & Model
Swift Challenger 480
Year
2009
Overall
Lowlights, The quality of build, in our opinion, leaves a lot to be desired . Highlights, Design and practicality.
Space & Practicality
The design and layout is first class for a couple.
Quality & Reliability
Main front window and gas regulator all required replacing, as did a tyre, all in the second year. This last week, June 11th, the main locker door over the sink, on opening, broke away from its support on the locker frame, and dropped heavily into my arms. The dealership has been made aware of this and is acting accordingly. I dread to think what other problems will occur after the warranty period ends this July.
Equipment & Comfort
A well designed caravan, perfect for a couple and with a reasonable weight, easy to tow and park.
Value for Money
We supplied an Alko wheel clamp, Tyron bands, Pigtail for the gas connection, all at our cost.
