  1. We hire out this model, basically Swift give you the option, 5 or 6 seat belts. With the 6 seatbelt option they plate the motorhome at 3650kg and with 5 seatbelt 3500kg.

    They are lovely motorhomes, we’ve got 2 for 2015.

    I would be looking for something under 6 mitre.

  3. Mike Hickmott says:

    Having read the preceding article in this email about seat belts – and being enlightened and corrected – I find it difficult to rationalise the heading of “Great Value 6 Berth” for this new motorhome.

    In one paragraph it says “two bunk beds ….. an overcab double ….. another double bed.” Yep, that’s 6! Then in the next paragraph it says there are 5 travel seats as standard. Yep, that’s 5, not 6. So, you cannot travel with 6 people, you can only sleep 6 people. That means 1 person either has to drive themself or they have to be at the destination already! Mmmmmm, a bit confusing me thinks!

    Why not only allow manufacturers/advertisers to state the number of bed spaces equal to the number of travel seats? And with 5, someone can have a double bed all to themselves!
