This high spec, caravan has been minimally used, and is in superb condition, with no smokers or pets inside the caravan at any time. It comes complete with all the manuals and instruction booklets. It will be fully valeted, serviced and damp checked prior to sale and comes laden with lots of extras including an inflatable awning and large amount of essential caravanning extras. A few dints due to wear, tear and age. Swift’s flagship 2011 Challenger SE models were given a redesign, with a new exterior shape and advanced interior styling, bringing new levels of space and luxury to this sought-after range. Improvements included an extra strong thermally efficient body shell with Grade 3 insulation throughout. The new profile, featuring a sweeping front panel increased the amount of storage space and interior improvements included energy-saving soft white LED lighting, integrated lockers, new front chest and a new binnacle with TV point and sockets. Built on an Al-Ko chassis, with shock absorbers, and a 2-way gas assisted handbrake, the Challenger 580 SE has a 2.31m wide body-shell, with 1.95m headroom, maximising the internal living area. There is a 'stand on' a frame cover, external BBQ point, exclusive Stoem alloy wheels, rainwater defector low-level front marker lights to minimise dazzle in towing mirrors. The caravan is fitted with an AL-KO 3002 stabilising hitch and the excellent AL-KO ATC system, making it one of the safest caravans to tow. There is also a spare wheel stowed in an Al-Ko wheel carrier under the caravan, an external 240v socket, and a 13 pin DIN standard socket to connect to the car towing electrics. The caravan also comes with Al-Ko wheel clamp that will reduce insurance costs. Three large double glazed panoramic windows, with pleated cassette blinds, combined with a sunroof, ensure that the front lounge section is light and airy. The seats and back rests feature domestic quality springing, and the hardwearing ‘Tundra’ design upholstery is matched by lined curtains and luxury 45oz pile carpets over wood-effect flooring. The aircraft-style overhead storage cupboards feature chrome handles and redesigned catches, and the lounge incorporates storage under the seats and a collapsible table which is neatly stored in its own recess, comfortably seating 4 people for meals. Set into the roof of the lounge is a large Heki II panoramic roof light - this gives the lounge plenty of ventilation and light when fully opened. There is a second TV point conveniently sited by the pull-out table and chest of drawers. The caravan features energy-saving LED throughout, complimented by mains corner lights, LED downlighter, concealed over locker ambient lighting and LED spotlights. This gives the well-lit interior of the Challenger an impressive and classy feel, whilst also increasing battery time. In the middle of the caravan, the well-appointed kitchen has a Thetford dual fuel hob four ring hob (3 x gas with flame-failure protection, 1 x 800w electric hotplate), with glass hob lid and with a separate thermostatic grill and oven. The kitchen also features a built-in Daewoo 700w microwave oven and a Domestic 107 litre 3-way fridge with a full width ice box, curved door, electronic ignition and digital controls for energy selection and temperature. There is plenty of food/cooking utensil storage space, including a slide out storage rack, ample worktops with down lighting, and a granite effect sink with integrated drainer and a chrome finish brass mixer tap. Above the cooking area is a small roof-light. The bathroom features a spacious lined shower cubicle, never used, a vanity unit with sink, mirror and cupboard and a Thetford c250 cassette toilet with electric flush. The fixed ‘island’ double bed, which features a high quality ‘Ultra Comfort” sprung mattress, is positioned in the centre of the rear of the caravan, providing room all around the sides of the bed and the bedroom can be partitioned from the rest of the caravan for privacy. The mattress sits on a space frame and lifts on gas struts, revealing lots of storage underneath, and there is additional space in the overhead aircraft style lockers. There are 2 reading lights positioned over the bed, and a small Heki roof light.
