If there is one layout that could be said to be a top trend for the past couple of years, it’s the rear in-line island bed with a central transverse washroom and, in particular, one with a central pillar and a large mirror.

People have taken to the idea of washroom space that can be accessed easily from the living area and the bedroom.

And they like that the central pillar can hold a TV bracket on the other side.

So it is surprising, perhaps, that this layout hasn’t previously made it into one of the longest-established ranges out there – the Swift Challenger.

Challenger buyers have long enjoyed the comfort of fixed and island beds, but to get this layout they would have had to move up to the Conqueror range until this year.

For 2017, the Swift Challenger 560 provides just such a layout. So, is it a case of answered prayers?
