    This is not meant as a criticism only a perhaps a few practical suggestions having now owned this Swift “Iona” for 18 mths. but having caravanned since 1969. 1. Clothes lockers too narrow for folded shirts.2.Kitchen cupboards could contain the odd shelf.3.Water heater switch is often kicked off, perhaps a slight relocation?4. Group all the locker water heater, security boxes etc. into one area to allow full space for storage.5.Double glazing continually misting is a problem.6. Poor quality front locker locks. Otherwise a great van to tow!!

    Dear Sir/Maddam,

    In response to your email i find it an insult that you should demonstrate your 2014 model to us having just purchashed a 2013 swift challenger sport 554 in february 2013 witch we are completely happy with for a substansiable amount and now you are marketing the 2014 models to us like we are made of money.PUT A STOP TO IT NOW as i feel like you are taking us for a ride.

      Hi Stuart,

      Thanks for getting in touch. I must make it clear that this is an independent review and is in no way a marketing tool for Swift. We like to showcase the latest models to our e-magazine subscribers to show the range of caravans and motorhomes available to them.

    2014 Challenger 565 (like Sterling Solitaire) has not dealt with glaring layout problems of 2013 models – fixed beds too high in relation to windows resulting in damage to blinds, and wc space has totally inadequate “elbow room”. Hope also that push-fit plumbing fittings have been improved so that they don’t pop off under pressure and flood caravan repeatedly.
