    Perhaps the equivalent Swift Elegance 530 traditional interior would suit the more conservative users. However, last years model was a twin axle – I don’t think so??

  2. Barry says:

    We have a Bailey Unicorn Madrid lll has everything and a bit more for 5 grand less and is lighter to no contest !

  3. John MacBride says:

    I like it, especially as they have toned things down just a fraction. But I am very happy with my Sterling Elite which has almost all the same features at less cost, and I think looks even better!

  4. Garry Bickle says:

    Doesn’t do it for me to modern…like a bit of the old traditional and being practical. Agree Leather very cold feeling!

  5. Ken says:

    Hi ,
    Not my kind of caravan don’t like the colours and the price tag well we all haven’t won the lottery.
    I haven’t seen a caravan good enough to replace my conqueror, come on Swift get your thinking cap on and bring something new to the market that does not cost an arm and a leg.

  6. Valerie Remnant says:

    It looks more like an up market hospital ward than a homely caravan.

  7. kathryn harris says:

    Sorry !!..not for me..I find it too clinical and the leather very cold especially for winter caravanning. To be honest..i would want a fixed bed for the price !!

  8. Andrew L. Smith says:

    Like the layout, apart from the low cupboard at the front which gets in the way when you want to make the bed. (had ours removed, and paid extra for it on our current ‘van.) Not so sure about the black and white scheme. I would like more relaxing colours. As we use our ‘van for relaxing in when we are away from home. I would have thought at this price the Al-Ko wheel lock would have been included as well. Still, cannot fault the Al-Ko Trailer Stability Control and would always recommend this to any one who considers buying any caravan. I have been towing for as long as I have had a licence (over 40 years) for work and leisure and these are a great safety feature. Like it, but would like a more relaxing range of colours available.

      Thanks Andrew. The Continental does come with an Al-Ko wheel lock – I’ve added it into the security box.

  9. John Trushell says:

    Over £27,500 and no alko wheel lock , just a receiver, Swift are taking the micky.

    • Liz @ Caravan Guard says:

      Hi John. It does include an Al-Ko wheel lock – it’s been added into the safety and security.

  10. Jill says:

    Love the new look and the security this caravan has, Seating in leather much more suitable for children and pets
