Earlier this year, Swift Group announced that it would be expanding the Challenger SE and Sterling Eccles SE ranges by adding three new twin-axle layouts.

In this video, CaravanTimes talks to Gary O'Brien from Swift about their three brand new caravans: the Challenger SE 590/Eccles SE Trekker, the Challenger SE 620/Eccles SE Voyager and the Challenger SE 645/Eccles SE Wayfarer.

We find out about the research involved in designing the new twin-axle caravans - using customer feedback done through Swift Talk and speaking to customers during exhibitions.

Interested in a closer look? Have a look at the 360degree tours of the new Challenger SE layouts here.

We also find out which caravans are the most popular, and the advantages of twin axles in comparison to single in terms of interior space with features such as a large front lounge, a full height fridge freezer.

Gary also offers some tips on towing a twin-axle and how they differ from a single-axle caravan in terms of stability.
