Caravan Review: Swift Challenger Sport 442

April 17, 2015

Renowned for their high quality caravans, the Swift group never fail to deliver – and today’s review puts the Swift Challenger Sport 442 in the spotlight. This lightweight 2 berth marries style with substance to offer the perfect travelling companion. Let’s see what all the fuss is about.

Design

The 2 berth, end washroom layout is beginning to lose appeal with caravan buyers – but thanks to this Swift Challenger’s lightweight design and style overhaul, it’s back on their radar. The shape and styling of the 442 gives it undeniable appeal in the showroom, as well as on the road. This Swift Challenger caravan is all about making outdoor living as enjoyable as possible for you – and this starts with a wide locker door, allowing you to easily swap the gas cylinders. Attention to detail both inside and outside of the caravan means that the Swift Challenger Sport 442 has plenty of appeal, whether you’re admiring it in the showroom or touring along the coast.

Interior

Step inside the 442 and the styling steps up another notch. The living and kitchen area are bedecked with a range of contemporary materials, and a dark wood finish adds an air of sophistication. The Challenger’s optional sunroof makes the lounge feel more spacious and is a must for people who like plenty of light. The generously sized living area converts into a large double bed, with the bed’s slats resting on runners for extra stability – something that has previously been missing from other Swift Challenger caravans. A well-placed chest of drawers provides storage as well as being a practical nightstand.

In terms of the cooking area, the 442’s kitchen is a standard side setup. While space is limited, it’s more than manageable for a 2 berth and the minimal worktop space can be increased by the end extension flap. The microwave is positioned at a reasonable height above the oven and is flanked by storage lockers – although there’s extra storage available adjacent to the kitchen area if you need more space. Moving into the washroom, there’s a generously sized wardrobe, although its positioning isn’t ideal. The toilet is positioned slightly too close to the wall – to allow access to the wardrobe – but the bowl swivels around for extra space. Access to the shower is narrow but, once inside, there’s a height-adjustable showerhead and plenty of space. Despite any minor shortcomings, the Swift Challenger Sport 442 has plenty to shout about – and with gas and electric power quickly heating the interior of the ‘van, you can enjoy your home-on-wheels all year round.

Price

If you want a reliable travelling companion to tour around the countryside or cruise along the coast with, the Swift Challenger Sport 442’s satisfying £16,675 price tag might just be enough to sway you.
