Swift Challenger 480 SE Used Caravan

Inspecting the interior of this caravan it is hard to find any blemishes or wear at all - it really is in lovely condition. Equally, on scrutinising the exterior there are no obvious knock or dents - an excellent conditioned used caravan. This 2 berth used caravan has some interesting features; for example it is fitted with a solar panel and solar regulator. It also has a Vision Plus VP2 Digital TV Amplifier with two amplified outputs and a Vision Plus Status antenna / aerial.

The Front Lounge
The front lounge area has a distinctive mini TV station area right at the front with two mains sockets, a 12v socket and of course TV connection point ( see photograph ). The seating is really comfortable and well kept and has good storage beneath for bedding ( see photograph ). For sleeping at night there is a choice of making this area into a double bed ( 6' 8" x 5' 9" ) or two singles ( 1@ 6' 1" x 2' 4" & 1@ 5' 9" x 2' 4" ). It is worth noting that there is an interesting feature - shown in the photographs - a slatted front bed make-up sytem on an easy glide track - that makes the preparation of a double bed much simpler and easier. One thing you will notice in the front of this caravan is the amount of light - Swift have provided two rooflights to this area which along with the surrounding windows gives an airy, balanced spread of daylight to the area. All these sources of light can of course be closed off for night-time purposes typically via integrated blinds.

You will notice from the photographs and layout diagram that there is a cabinet seperating the seating. This also provides a small occasional table ( see photographs ). Alternatively, there is a more substantial table for meal times stored in the WC / Shower room. Night-time lighting is provided by a combination of four directional spotlamps ( see photograph ) and a large, long diffused inset strip light.

For entertainment, there is a JVC Radio/CD player with auxillary input point and inset/fitted speakers ( see photograph ) and of course the already mentioned TV connection point.

The Kitchen
Central to the overall layout of the caravan, the kitchen area has a modern workstop with an inset sink and hob ( three gas plus one hotplate ). When you require extra worktop space there is a flip-up / flip-down worktop extension ( see photograph ). The full capacity Dometic fridge has a full width freezer compartment to the top (see photograph ). The combination oven and grill are in lovbely condition and there is a useful cupboard beneath the oven for baking trays etc. Seperating the fridge and oven ( always an recommended thing to do ) is a cupboard that provides a cutlery drawer, vegatable baskets and storage space for the chopping board. Making use of every ounce of space there is another cutlery drawer between the top of the fridge and the worktop ( see photograph ). The 800w microwave is directly above the kitchen worktop with storage cupboards either side. Nightime lighting for the kitchen is provided by two fixed spot lights and a small strip light set beneath the top cupboards and looking directly down onto the worktop. There is a fan in the roof for this area.

TV Station Area
Situated directly opposite the kitchen area and of course adjacent to the lounge, the TV station area has a TV connection point, a 12v socket plus two mains sockets ( see photograph ). There are various cupboards and shelves for storage of cables, DVD's and anything you need for holiday entertainment. as mentioned before the Swift Challenger 480 SE has a vision Plus VP2 Digital TV Amplifier and a Vision Plus Status aerial.

The Rear Washroom / Shower Room
The Washroom is situated to the rear of the caravan. Set to the left as you enter the room is the Thetford C-260 cassette toilet. To the right of that is a useful sized cupboard / wardrobe with hanging rail ( see photograph ). Other storage is provided by the cupboard beneath the washbasin ( see photograph ) The shower unit itself is a reasonable size and has a sliding, folding door. There is also a heated towel rail and a large wall mounted mirror.
Used caravans from PENROSE TOURING come with a 12 month warranty for peace of mind.

Hi Dick
I had a 36 months gold package with them and made a claim for a repair in France.
They paid 80% of the bill which was over 1100 euro.
In my book that was good value

Hi Glandwr.
I have had very good experiences with this company 3 years ago. Firstly,the power steering rack failed.One phone call to MB&G. I was asked where I would like to have it done,which was our local garage in Gretna.They then contacted the gararage.All I had to do was to sit and wait a few days until it was done.Brilliant!

Next was the kitchen tap which went in France--quick phone call to MB&G--kept receipt and was re-imbursed within 4 days of being back home. The integral bike rack hinges failed. It was repaired by Peter Hambilton,who did a brilliant job. Again,just a quick phone call to MB&G,and everything was sorted. I would only hope they are still as good now as they were then. I couldn't fault them. The warranty was in with the price of the van,so I can't say how much it cost but as the van was 10 yrs old I wanted some form of assurance for that 1st year. Incidentally,it's needed nothing since, other than basic service items. You can only speak as you find,but for me they were vey good.
