This a mini review I did on Swift Talk a few weeks ago.
have had my van now for 3 weeks it’s a Swift Sienna 6 TD which dealers special edition based on the Sprite Major 6 TD.
so far I’m very happy with the caravan it’s a big step up from our 2006 5 berth Swift Challenger. It toes much better and uses less fuel even though it’s heavier. I’m assuming this is down to the aerodynamics. It also has ATC which I haven’t used so far but it’s good to know there is additional assistance if needed.
I’m very happy with the exterior and the front sunroof is a great addition the LED lights make the van look so much more modern.
Inside is where have seen the biggest improvements it feels like there is so much more space and the layout is very family friendly. Bedtime for my 4 year old is so much easier and she has her own space at the back and we have ours in the evenings. The seating area is great there is no need to get the large table out as this fits us great. The bunk beds are very comfortable as they have full length mattresses, I’m 6ft and I could spend a full night in there. At the back both bunks get their own windows and lights which kids love. There is loads of space which is great for families and everything that comes with it.
The bathroom is great the shower is fully lined and has good pressure there is plenty of room in there.
The kitchen is good too we now have a microwave but lost one electric burner. We like the full size sink with good water pressure. The fridge seems bigger too and we like the blue light in there.
the front area is large and comfortable the mattresses are much more comfortable and I don’t get back ache any more.
Both myself and my wife like the interior it’s much more modern and user friendly. The lights is great and there is much more adjustment so the lights can be dimmed etc.
The heating seems much more balanced and the rear gets hot air too which was lacking in our old caravan. I have read a few reviews about Swift Command but I think it’s brilliant idea, I can track the caravan adjust the lighting from the bed or set it to come on when we are out. It’s similar to Hive which we have at home I’m looking forward to using the heating function in the winter so we can return back to a warm van.
I miss the additional shelf at the front fir the TV I’m not sure about the tv on the draws.
my preference would be to use the electric job but we only have 3 gas burners it’s not a big deal but we used it slot when on electric pitch’s. I don’t know if this can be retro fitted?
all on all we are very happy with the van and I’m looking forward to our first trip abroad with a caravan.
if anyone is thinking of buying a caravan with this layout I’m happy to answer any questions.
