    I've often wondered what the selling price of my 'van would be if sold by a dealer at today's prices, so

    could anyone give me a clue as to how I can find out the original selling price of my 'van. It's a 1995

    Swift Royale 610 with a Peugeot 2.5D engine. Hopefully, I could then increase that by inflation over

    the last 19 years to get a rough comparative.

    I don't think that would necessarily work.

    There are many factors which influence the selling price not least cost of production, competition, state of the market (demand), dealer markup.

    A better bet would be to try to find the nearest equivalent van on sale today.

    Hi

    Swift royale 610 with a 2litre petrol was £27561 according to Which Motorcaravan in May 1996 so factor in a little for the diesel and your somewhere near

    They also test the 630 in the same issue with the diesel at £3100

    Trust this helps

    Interesting on that basis around £44,000.

    How does that seem compared to an equivalent today?

    Thanks for your answers. I think that the quality of the base vehicle has vastly improved in newer vehicles but the comparative quality of the conversion of a new van costing £44,000 isn't a patch on the quality of my 19 year old ('van)
