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.

Our Top Touring Apps To Help Holidaying

What phone apps are worth looking at?

It was not that long ago that the A to Z was the travelling man's, and woman's, best friend. For years this helped motorists and holiday makers across the UK get from A to B with ease, provided you had a good map reading co-pilot and an update map.

Your Friendly Neighbourhood Caravan Cafe

The mobile cafe is here to help you get your tea and cake fix

The old traditional caravan nowadays is most likely spotted sat on driveways covered in weather ware or just plonked depressingly in fields throughout the country. One special care giver has stumbled upon a very rare vintage van and has decided to turn it into something worthwhile to help out our aging community

Motorhome Hire Franchise Launch And Expansion

Hire franchise plan to change the rental market in the UK

The market for new and second hand leisure vehicles keeps growing and growing as more UK residents are opting to choose a caravan for the next holiday. Another sector within the industry that is seeing a real boom is the leisure vehicle rental market. At last month's NEC Motorhome and Caravan Show the UK's first nationwide motorhome franchise business was launched.

Caravan Review - The Airstream Colorado

Living the dream in the American Airstream

The all American touring icon has been available for purchase from main dealers in the UK for just over a year or so now. Since Airstream's launch in the UK I have not seen a huge amount on the highways of caravan parks across the UK. There may be quite a few reasons for this, most of which have nothing to do with the quality of design build but more to do with how the UK consumer sees the larger red white and blue towing caravan.
