    Hi

    Many thanks to all the members who took the time to reply to my last post about whether a particular van was too big for a first vehicle.
    The van in question is a newish Swift Bolero - rear bathroom and single beds. Does anyone have any experience of this make and model. Any comments much appreciated.

    Hi we have one and love it no problems driving it and the layout suits us before the Bolero we had a Auto trail Miami nearly the same lay out single beds and rear bathroom had it 3 years travelled all over even went to France twice.
    The last trip in the Bolero returned 33mpg on A and B roads a nice van to drive.
    Take it out for test drive I am sure you will not be disappointed

    we have an early 2012 first of the alKo chassis model with rear washroom.
    very happy generaly. gas bottle locker needed to take 2x11k[instead of 2x6k] as alde heating is hard on gas in cold weather.would like a bit more kitchen worktop. even at the loss of some sofa/bed space. the sink is to close to seating anyway

    few problems
    door check strap poor design
    overlocker lights work when they feel lke it[some allways ok]

    hope that helps

    Bolero 2012

    Hi

    We have a 2012 Bolero with fixed single beds and love it. Faults have been lights over the lockers as already quoted, awning light and internal leds come on when other power sources are switched on or off but other than that it is great. We have had 31mpg from her and enjoy every minute.
