This spacious 2 berth, 2008 Swift Challenger 480 has been stored undercover by us in recent years, and is a perfect starter caravan for a couple. The Swift Challenger range is Swift’s higher spec range and features upgraded equipment, upholstery and furnishings. It has been fully valeted inside and out by us, and has been serviced and damp checked, providing peace of mind for a new owner. The price reflects the fact that during the service and damp check, significant water ingress was detected in the top right rear corner of the caravan. However, there are minimal visible signs of damp (no mould, no smell etc) and a professional awning rail reseal/repair has been completed by a specialist workshop in 2017 to prevent further water ingress (this will be rechecked prior to sale). Brand new tyres were fitted in 2017. The Swift Challenger 480 is Cris registered and the caravan comes complete with all the manuals, paperwork and service history.
