Swift Challenger SE 590
Berths: 6 Twin Axle Length: 7.93m MRO: 1615kg


Luxury meets affordability in this popular mid-range that offers a perfect combination of style and specification at a weight that falls within a wide range of towing cars.

With five twin axle layouts in the 10 model line up it also offers the ultimate in space. There is a new layout with L-shaped front seating in the 6 berth, twin axle 630 model which also has a fixed bed with large rear washroom.

Challenger interiors enjoy all the benefits that quality, advanced design and attention to detail can bring.

An exceptionally high specification includes Alde radiator central heating with a touch screen control, an uprated 40W solar panel and new exclusive Duvalay Duvalite mattress, with lightweight memory fibre technology in fixed bed models, for an ultra comfortable nights sleep.

Pleated blinds and low energy lighting throughout including low level night lights, kitchen splash back and under worktop lighting, lets you set the mood.

A wide choice of seating layouts combine with well equipped kitchens and an external BBQ point allows for alfresco cooking. Washrooms have separate shower cubicles with powerful Eco Camel shower head, a handy hanging rail, back lit mirror and the luxury of a Alde heated towel radiator.

Weights: The method of calculating the Mass in Running Order (MRO) and user payload figures has changed in order to bring it in line with European Vehicle Directives.

1 Awning Sizes: Due to the varying awning designs and sizes the awning sizes given are approximate only. Specific awning sizes must be confirmed by your dealer or the awning manufacturer prior to purchase.

2 Allowances for essential equipment (e.g. gas cylinders) previously allowed for in the user payload are now contained within the MRO. A provision for a leisure battery which used to be within the essential equipment payload has now been included within the personal effects payload allowance. Although the method of calculation has changed, the overall effect is that the amount of payload available to the customer has remained the same, it is just calculated in a different manner.

Bed Sizes: Please note that the front double bed sizes quoted are for seating configurations without chest of drawers. The front double bed width for a layout with a chest of drawers fitted will be reduced by 0.4m(1'4") from that stated.

* The dimensions given are approximate due to slight variations in suspension ride heights, loading conditions and tyre pressures.
