Swift Challenger Sport 640
Berths: 6 Twin Axle Length: 7.93m MRO: 1542kg


With modern styling and cutting edge interiors the Challenger Sport range provides outstanding value at weights that can be towed by most family cars.

Whether you want to kick back and relax or explore the great outdoors, the Challenger Sport comes with a choice of ten models including a new twin axle model with front and rear parallel seating, the 640, so there is sure to be a layout to suit you.

Comfortable and relaxed, professional designers have carefully coordinated the interior, which is flooded with light from the panoramic sun roof.

The new 'Maldives' soft furnishing scheme has seating fabric in a grey hue with a warm thread running through the heavy weave of the fabric that links in closely with the colour of the 'Mali Acacia' wood grain. The curtain and scatter cushions incorporate colour through a random abstract design.

A choice of flexible seating and sleeping arrangements are combined with well equipped kitchens and washrooms.

The Truma Combi boiler has been upgraded to a more powerful model to provide faster more efficient heat up and a new 40W solar panel fitted as standard gives greater independence. Another practical addition is the Eco Camel shower head and hose which cleverly injects air directly into the water stream so you use less water while experiencing a more powerful shower.

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.
