    I liked these when I looked at them, however some models have rather a low roof if you are tall ( over 6'2'').

    I don't know if they suffer from the same leak problems as the Kon-Tiki, as the construction appears much the same.

    What would you like to know, I'll help where I can :thumb:

    As far as leaks go, I believe early ones were more prone but thye later ones are fine :Smile: - only have experience of our own one though which is a 2002 730 model.

    I have no direct experience of Swift, or the BelAir in particular, but would offer the comment that no UK manufacturer has ever been able to make a commercial success of an A-class motorhome. I am not sure about the BelAir, but some apparently British A-classes were re-badged continental products - e.g. Mirage. I believe the BelAir was in production for only a short time and so, there may not have been time to iron out the wrinkles and any design issues. There is certainly not a large user base from which to draw experience.

    If I were making the choice, I would stick with one of the tried and tested German or French manufacturers.
