In 1964, Ken Smith built his first touring caravan, along with his partner Ken Day, called The Ten in Hull, which they retailed at £289. Swift was born, and two more models followed by the end of the year - the Clubman and the Valken. The following year, Smith bought out his partner and went it alone with wife Joan. Swift started building motorhomes in 1985.
Today, Ken's son Peter Smith remains Chairman of the Swift Group, and their factory is still based at Dunswell Road in Hull, where they have been since 1970.
