    Common problem, see here (these guys are Swift approved, give them a call and check chassis number first) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SWIFT-STERLING-CARAVAN-BLACK-FRONT-ROOF-BADGE-DECAL-STICKER-NEARSIDE-G110061/361987929344?epid=906654919&hash=item5448297500:g:megAAOSw8lpZJCzm
  2. These are the offending unnecessary and frankly personal comments which do seems totally unwarranted, LE never told you anything and the post was very relevant? No idea either what LE needed to get out of?
  3. Most if not all of us I recon :-) And its not just fridge, as said above its also charging. So you have let me down you mean then its not a wireless 12v system then, a bit like QI in the phone world? :-) back to the drawing board lol
  4. I think there could be an issue based on the usage of the land in planning terms, eg it may be down as equestrian use (and some conditions around that). This may help link here ps - be warned sometimes this can open up a hornets nest, eg the land is down as agricultural and a planner see's you using it for horses!
  5. Perhaps it’s a wireless 12v connection? think outside the box, if all we had to do was hitch that sounds good to me. All the LED canbus issues sorted .....yes please. Also, I have assisted countless people on sites struggling with their 13pin connections due to mainly alignment issues from connections to unplugging. Form completed David good luck 😉 Like this perhaps? I shared this on Swift Talk last year 😊 the comments are a tad predictable of course.
  6. IMO unless any Tracker saves you money on annual insurance (or insurance mandate one) then forget it, simples! The tech that blocks trackers is scary as is the way they find them and quickly ditch them, if they want it, they’ll take it!
  7. It works out simple .... if the customer goes to the dealer and insists/prefers or whatever the dealer to do the repair work then CRA....and the dealer my lose the ability to back it off to Swift (unless there is still some legacy warranty agreement under the dealer/Swift supply agreement of course) OR if the customer chooses go elsewhere (approved place) then it’s pure 100% warranty claim on the manufacturer. And guess what, it’s Swift to Buyer lol! 😂
  8. I suspect Swift may grease the wheels in really tight spots but that may just mean unwanted travel to get to the willing dealer or service centre. As I said in a post above it’s the same situation in a private sale where there is no dealer whatsoever just as it would be if a dealer went into administration/bust. As I also quoted above from Swift’s warranty they clearly ask you to contact Swift Customer Care directly if the supplying dealer is not possible for whatever reason (eg. bust/private sale no dealer). Regardless the the point is the warranty is provided by Swift to the buyer/2nd/3rd buyer subject to transfer fee.
  9. Basecamp had a recall for the rear door letting in water and causing damp in the upper timer floor. The upper floor is the only timber (ply) in the body on basecamp (apart from 2020MY). The warranty should be transferable as long as the servicing has been honoured in line with Swift, in which case there should be about a year left on the main warranty but at least 3 years on the body (ingress) warranty. Link to warranty here , worth a read.
  10. RIP Conqueror, such a shame they killed that model off 😔 so much better than “Elegance” IMO.
  11. Well said that man, a" like" or "+1" not good enough on this occasion :-) Now then, how long before we do this little cycle again lol
  12. No confusion here but it is a very complicated subject due to the nature of how dealers seem to operate and how so many buyers fall under the illusion of it being like motor dealers. Its all so taken for granted when it just works. Breach of contract perhaps is the obvious claim. Perhaps you need a scenario - lets imagine I buy a caravan 6 months old from my neighbours and I pay Swift to transfer the warranty. 12 months later it pours water in from the roof, what do I do? I have no dealer? But I do have Swift (warranty) to make a claim on. I believe they would assist me finding a place to execute that claim and in some cases it may even be back to the Swift factory. So, I contact Swift. So who have I claimed against? Further, if Swift reject my claim for some invalid reason I am sure there are plenty of lawyers who’d gladly take my money to put right a clear breach of contract. Incidentally lets assume I have fully followed my part of the contract for example an approved service at 12 months dully uploaded to Swift.
  13. But the buyer does claim off the manufacturer via a dealer (one who is willing as said) - its just the way the T&C's rule a claim nothing else, a dealer does not pay or claimed upon? Why? well i guess because a manufacturer can't manage claims all over the country (or world) so this is simply stipulated in their warranty provisions. If a manufacturer refuse a warranty claim (and we'll assume CRA is not applicable, eg a private sale) then damm right you'd take the manufacturer to court. There are 2 contracts for a buyer from a retailer CRA (dealer) and Warranty (manufacturer) - end of.
  14. Absolutely, in addition at a service centre or other manufacturer appointed location (if they are willing too lol). In Swift's case (case point) they do clearly state the warranty is provided by SWIFT, quote The name and address of the Warranty provider is: Swift Group Limited, Dunswell Road, Cottingham, East Yorkshire, HU16 4JX; and - quote: To make a claim under this warranty, contact the dealer or park operator which supplied your Home. If this is not possible then contact the Swift Group Customer Care Department on 01482 875740, or enquire on the website www.swiftgroup.co.uk I fully expect you could take a manufacturer to court if they fail to honour a valid warranty claim, why would you think otherwise? You seem to continually confuse CRA with a Warranty and the benefits of each - a warranty is additional protection as stated before countless times, its particularly of benefit to second owners and later in life but of less benefit perhaps to new buyers where CRA services us better (circumstances depending of course as warranty serves most of us adequately nearly always).
  15. I don’t think Swift have removed any posts I think Simon (OP) most likely did that himself. The original thread on SwiftTalk, where Swift responded, remains but was locked for further comment. The subsequent thread the OP definitely deleted and I suspect the same happened on his third thread (yesterday).
