    Just emptied and winterised our van ready to go back to Swift in January for repairs. Felt quite sad in a way knowing that our first season in our new 'home from home' had come to an end.
    I just a few short months we'd been on our first ever trip to Bavaria, and then across the Alps to Tuscany.
    Sitting there in the cold empty van felt a bit sad. But memories of sunny days and eating out on a warm evening made me smile.
    Already looking forward to next years adventures!

    Rear window leaks very slightly which according to the dealer needs removing, drying out, then re wallpapering inside. To big a job for the dealer apparently

    our season never ends, whilst the van does not leave the site as often as I'd like it is used as a static nearly every day. repairs and upgrades are ongoing as required and weather allows.

    Let down, angry.

    Make sure you get a good repair and some compensation for your inconvenience.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't feel let down by Swift. When we looked at the build quality of our Swift van compared with others we found Swift to be far superior value for money. The point of my post was about how I felt about putting the van to bed - not sticking the knife into Swift.
    Yes I've had a problem but Swift have been quick to respond
