    hi swift 630l sundance 2.8 engine rear u lounge

    i bought the sundance from glenns leisure vehicles in nottingham with px my joint e47, [not big enough which is still for sale:wub:] it ticks all the boxs rear u lounge and front dinette a pop layout:Smile: allthough i might change to a rv:RollEyes: need more space 3 kids:RollEyes:

    anyway the sunny good points [ for me]:Wink:
    drives very well smooth
    layout . electric heating / or gas
    powerful engine got some torch a 53 model only got 7000 on clock i pre owner
    hob and oven grill
    plenty internal storage
    haki sunroof plenty off light
    issues... poor fixing
    lack off external storage!!.. this can solved by adding some beanie boxs !
    curtain in rear u.. catches on door tops !so you take it down:Mad:
    bung / plug for fresh water tank poor idea .. !!
    some holes where pipes enter under van need sealing you dont want the little mice !!! ie, silicone sealant

    apart from general every day niggles its a top van

    Ray i have a Swift aswell and i agree having to put your hand into the fresh water tank and pull out a rubber bung is not good :Mad:
    What i done on mine (briefly) is remove the bung and connect a hose to it running to the outside of the vehicle where i connected a tap to it, I have fresh water supply without having to go in the van or just turn the tap on to drain down :Smile:

    Cheers Mark

    Ray I used a screw fitting and also bedded it with clear silicone , there was a lip to the outside of the water tank that had to be trimmed back with a Stanley kinife , If your attending the Grand Opening meet i can show you ( if i have fitted it to the new one , by then ) :RollEyes: i will bring some spares with me that i should be able to aquire from work , so should be ok to do yours if not already done :Smile:

    Meet

    Well, if I can't get those fangled head lamp protectors on the Multijet, a lot of help might be needed!
