BOTH TOP-END Swift Group ranges benefit from minor improvements to their luxury specification for next season.




Al-Ko ATC becomes standard-fit, there’s facelifted Al-Ko hitch gear and new finishes for cabinetwork, kitchen and table surfaces. A new bed-slat system makes its appearance and kitchens get LED downlighters.

Faster water heater

An Alde heated towel rail is added to most models in the range, and Truma’s upgraded Ultrastore will heat water faster than before. The external pump filling for the onboard tank is now controllable via the caravan’s control panel.

 

A new model is added to both ranges. Sterling Elite Opal and Swift Conqueror 565 bring the popular twin-bed, end-washroom layout into both line-ups.

 

Competitive

A new model each and subtle improvements should keep the Elite and Conqueror competitive. They’ll need to be, as Elddis and Coachman are pushing hard.
