    Welcome to motorhome fun, and dont feel sheepish every one of us was new once.

    Its a lovely website with very helpful and friendly members.



    Sorry cant help answer your question,

    But am really interested to know why you found the one you bought such a great mistake as we are thinking of upgrading to one with a fixed bed and have looked at a few including bessacar

    We are on our second Swift van now and our first was an Eldis and more or less 4 years full time my comment is this

    I would never ever have anything to do with a Swift product again, I am continualy doing repairs and replacements on our 6 year old Suntor, the Eldiss was just the same, falling apart arround us.

    Things like garage door falling off, light switches failing, cuboard doors falling off, lanamation in the body skins and water taps falling apart in our hands, that was the latest one 2 days ago.

    If I ever buy another van it will be from the continent and not from the UK.
