Please help funsters
We are going to the motorhome show and we have been looking at buying a swift c500 auto, we have a premier h522 on a Renault master chassis which is auto, and the she has been a fantastic motorhome and still is.
Can the wise people on this forum give me and my wife some guidance regarding buying a swift motorhome as this will be a big investment for two pensioners.
Thank you in advance.

enough to know i shouldnt touch things i know nothing about ....
My suggestion would be to make sure the dealer you buy from is local to you as there WILL be snagging that will need sorting out, however perfect you think the model of the motorhome is for you. It also helps with any free servicing or paid servicing requirements that form part of your 'package'.

As regards buying a Swift, only you really know what layout you need or want and what bits you like or dislike about any particular layout, design, dimensions, chassis, engine size, gearbox etc so as everyone has their own 'dream motorhome', only you can choose yours.

Good luck with the purchase and enjoy whatever you buy!

IMHO it is more important to get a van from a GOOD dealer than one closer to you. Our local Carthago dealer is crap, I am still waiting for a call back from 4 years ago. So we purchased from a dealer 150 miles away with a great reputation, yes we had some snags on the van which they fixed as swiftly as they could. And yes that involved a 300 mile round trip which we made part of another getaway, and the dealer chucked a load of diesel in our van to make up for our inconvenience. We are retired so time on our hands but would rather travel than have a crap dealer on the doorstep. Please be aware a lot of salesman talk with forked tongues at the show and they will say anything to close the sale.
Good luck.
