The mid-market segment can be a tricky one for caravan manufacturers.

It’s where there’s most choice for buyers, but it’s also where there’s the greatest competition between brands.

Swift’s Challenger range is a mainstay in this part of the market, popular in its own right and as the basis for a slew of dealer special editions.

But alongside its established rivals, it faces a new challenge from a manufacturer special edition, Bailey’s keenly priced Pegasus GT70 range.

It’s fair to say that Sprite got most of the love in Swift Group’s 2018 model year launch, so next season will surely be a crucial point in Challenger’s future development.

In the meantime, Challenger comprises eight models, after last season’s 510 was deleted.

They are all carried forward with only minor changes, with the exception of the two-berth 480, which has been lengthened by 55cm.

This van carries the classic parallel lounge, midships kitchen and end-washroom floorplan, which is widely available at this price point.
