Swift Challenger 480 (2017)
This model has the Alde central heating fitted and includes the Swift Challenger Lux Pack, (illuminated splash back, BBQ point, external 240v socket, alarm with key fob operation and external service door) included in the price.
The panoramic sunroof allows plenty of natural light into the interior where new ‘Santa Monica’ soft furnishings with warm grey, bronze and red hues are paired with ‘Aralie Sen’ woodgrain.
Gloss high level lockers feature a chrome inlay and positive locker catches for safe and secure storage. Adding to the quality feel are new pleated cassette blinds to the windows and mini-Heki multi-directional clear roof lights in the kitchen and bedrooms.
Flexible seating and sleeping arrangements feature Swift’s exclusive AirWave seating with a unique construction that expertly blends comfort and support. Fixed beds are topped with the ultra comfortable Duvalay Duvalite mattress, again exclusive as standard equipment to the Swift Group.
Well-equipped kitchens and washrooms house an array of clever storage solutions. Plentiful hot water is provided by the ‘Truma’ Combi heating system and you have the option to upgrade to Alde wet central heating.
Boosting specification levels further is the new Swift Command control system with optional Thatcham Category 6 approved pro-active tracker and a new Lux pack option which adds a stylish illuminated kitchen splashback, external BBQ point, external 230V socket, external service door and key fob operated alarm system for an overall package that’s hard to beat.
