We'll have full details and pictures on the site in a couple of days time, but until then, here is the teaser image that Swift Group will allow us to show you.

We're limited in what we are allowed to say about the new models at present. A complete new bodyshell is one thing that the image makes pretty obvious, and you can see it doesn't look like other caravans.
