Have the cracking problems been sorted on the panals of new vans?

Or is it still a problem ?

Still a problem on rear panels on Elddis according the Elddis Owners Facebook group. Also not covered by the water ingress warranty; so only warranted for a year. Or so they say.

Some later Swift group owners have reported cracks. 2016-17 ish and later. It’s not just the abs panels. . So difficult to know if later ones have been less affected. Time will tell.

Not the way I would want to do it but if the rear panel cracks then it is defective and the sheer number involved should give you a sound claim against the dealer. That may be more difficult with second hand ones, particularly if bought privately.

2023 Elite 480 dealer special Based on the Swift Challenger. I'm now a few pounds lighter.
Looked at those at the Nec. Very nice. In fact the nicest 2 berth that we saw. How long will you have to wait?

Dealer had two of these two berths , almost just off the transport, wanted one for a display model, sold me the other one.

pick it up after they have fitted a motor mover. Pick it up later next week. Right place at the right time. send you a few pics when I have it.

My condolences on your loss and that you and your wife will not be able to enjoy some time together in the new caravan.

We are so sorry to hear your sad news Dave. We know it has been a hard time this year, at peace now.
So Dave looks like you will have put the new baby through her paces. Somewhere for Christmas?

Sorry for your loss. My wife was discharged from hospital earlier this month after 5 weeks and almost visiting the Pearly gates.
