SOLD Swift Elegance 580 (2015)



This is the top of the range Swift and has a transverse bed with an end washroom.




  • Overview

The Elegance is the new flagship caravan within the Swift range, built with SMART HT construction. It has an exterior and interior style that exudes quality to make it the definitive touring caravan range.

The 580 model benefits from what is probably the most extensive research and testing programme to bring you a truly 21st century range that uses technologically advanced components and construction methods.

Enjoying meticulous attention to detail and a high quality finish, the flagship Elegance range is in a class of its own. Professionally designed interiors give a modern style to supreme specification.

The warm and welcoming soft furnishings create a sophisticated yet relaxed ambience anyone would feel at home in. There is also a luxury leather and 'Impala' option.

Subtle details to enhance the luxury feel include gloss upper locker doors and varied LED lighting including dimmable spot lights, LED front pillar lights and down lighting in the ceiling which gives a stunning effect.

The Elegance boasts the impressive equipment level you would expect in a luxury touring range.

Alde radiator central heating comes with a domestic towel radiator in the washroom, the front binnacle supports USB and audio jack connections, there is an illuminated cocktail cabinet and the kitchen has a HI-MACS® natural acrylic stone solid work surface with stainless steel underslung sink.

An exclusive Duvalay mattress on fixed bed models ensures the ultimate nights sleep and the longer front beds are easier to make up with the bolster cushions remaining in place to double as a headboard. Little is left to the imagination.
