Caravan manufacturer Swift – based in Cottingham, near Hull – is the UK’s largest leisure-vehicle manufacturer.
It has a huge number of loyal fans, and for good reason: over the past 60 years, it’s built a strong reputation for its well-built and beautifully designed touring caravans.
So it’ll come as no surprise, then, that when we judged our most recent Practical Caravan awards, Swift grabbed two of our most hotly contested trophies.
Swift Challenger Exclusive 580 – Best 4-berth Caravan
The Swift Challenger Exclusive range is new for 2024, and the transverse-island-bed 580 model caught our experts’ eye from the start.
With the 580 featuring a stylish and modern exterior, as well as an end washroom, the judges were particularly impressed by the latter.
“We loved how spacious the area felt – something we always look out for in the best caravans,” they said.
The 580’s roomy lounge also scored highly with our judges. “A large sunroof and Heki roof vent ensure the lounge is well-lit, with plenty of lighting provided for evenings, too,” they commented.
“This creates the ideal setting for the four of you to stretch out on those comfortable settees.”
In fact, our team was so impressed with the 580 that it was shortlisted in the Best Caravan for Couples category, too.
The 580 is one of four Challenger Exclusive models, all of which offer something very special.
No matter which you choose, you’ll get a host of fantastic features as standard.
These include onboard 4G Wi-Fi, stunning GRP grey side wall décor, exclusive graphics and an upgraded fabric scheme with superior stitching.
And if you want even more space, take a look at the five Challenger Grande Exclusive models.
They have the same great specification as the Challenger Exclusive caravans, but are eight foot in width.
Swift Elegance Grande 760 – Best Caravan for Seasonal Pitches
Our top caravan for seasonal pitches needed to offer plenty of space inside, and a high level of specification that will keep you comfortable all year round.
“Hidden behind the large central washroom is a very comfortable in-line island bed, set in its own bedroom,” said our judges.
“And with a 30-litre water tank on board, you might not have to worry about that Aquaroll either,” they continued.
The 760 model is perfect for families, too – in fact, it was also shortlisted in our Best Caravan for families category.
Elsewhere in the Elegance Grande range there are five other models, all featuring a comfortable double bed with an exclusive Duvalay mattress.
Alde underfloor heating and a 100W roof-mounted solar panel are also included, for an even more comfortable holiday.
All Elegance Grande models are eight foot in width, too, giving you a huge amount of space to relax in onsite.
All-year touring as standard
No matter which Swift caravan you go for, you’ll get the benefit of the company’s Smart construction.
This clever timberless technique – which Swift launched 10 years ago – offers enhanced structural integrity, and will give you true peace of mind no matter what the weather conditions outside.
