    Sorry if this has been posted before but was just looking at the specification of this new Swift built on an Iveco Daily. Certainly takes them into a completely new segment of the market, 7200kg and £150,000!
    Anyone seen one at all?

    Didn't know it was April 1st.:rofl:

    Would any sane person spend that much on a Swift, with their reputation £100 would be too much for me.

    I thought it was a April fools joke as well. I will be interested to see how many are seen on the highways of UK. :D

    Well I would buy a Swift happily, in fact our 2nd van was a Kontiki when Lyn and I were very lucky twenty somethings being able to buy a brand new motorhome. The "Groundhog" effect of spoiler and colour coding of the grill, trim and mirrors we felt made it look stylish and modern.

    Had it about a year until we fell in love with Yanks which we have had ever since.

    £150K ? Not so expensive in this day an age, so I suspect that we will see them being sold.

    Would I buy one? No, as it doesn't have slides, and whilst I don't know about Black :whistle: but Once you've had slides its hard to go back!

    That’s strange, I recall 3 recent threads on certain Motorhomes from the fatherland , one leaking valve, one electrical problems and one that cannot be driven in a straight line down the road, notwithstanding the multiple water leaks previously posted. People in glasshouses!

    I quite like that. It certainly looks to be quite innovative in some areas compared to the repetitive looking stuff that's being produced my the majority of manufacturers.

    I spoke with some tech guy at the Oct-18 NEC show and he mentioned that Swift were going to start introducing slide-outs to some of their vans soon.

    It would be great if a Brit company were to start pushing the boundaries and this looks to be a good start IMO.

    Some people might think you statenent a little harsh. As the owner of 2017 Swift Escape 684 I have to correct you...... Down to about £75 .suffice to say new body/roof floor build,excellent. Everything inside flimsy as ... To demonstrate our view of the internal build we no longer own it swapped it after 1 year.
