Looking down the specification list of the new Swift Elegance and Sterling Continental ranges it would be reasonable to expect them to weight as much as a small house.
With premium fittings like solid-surface worktops and soft-close drawers, how could the company keep the weights down?
And yet, each model is equivalent in weight to the Swift Conqueror and Sterling Elite ranges that preceded them as the pinnacle of the Swift Group touring caravans collection.
In this video, Nick Page from the Swift Group explains how the technological innovations of Smart HT allowed for more features to be added without increasing the weight.
We also discuss the Al-Ko systems that have been fitted to the popular chassis to make it as smooth to tow as anything on the market.
Finally, Nick talks us through the aerodynamic design that has contributed to a significant reduction in drag, which should translate into saving money at the petrol pumps.
