industry news / advice / new caravans / holiday
Production is now in full swing on the new 2021 Bailey and Swift ranges, welcome news to many caravanners who have been patiently awaiting these. We’re already taking orders so get in touch soon to ensure you don’t miss out!
When the coronavirus pandemic swept our nation in the spring, the lockdown period that followed meant caravan production had to stop. The factories closed for over four months, with the remainder of the planned 2020 builds having to be abandoned. This led to a shortage of caravans over the summer period when showrooms reopened, and these shortages may continue into 2021 as social distancing measures and reduced staff numbers will leave manufacturers unable to produce as many vehicles as usual.
Swift and Bailey resumed production in August, getting started on the 2021 ranges, demo models have been slowly entering showrooms - including ours - over the past six weeks.
Although we are now in lockdown #2 and we’ve closed our showroom doors until 2 December, we’re still here and happy to help! With more time at home on your hands, now’s the perfect time to investigate the different options and place your order. Get in touch via email and we can assist you from there.
Orders placed now will be for spring delivery. Keep in mind that due to the COVID-related restrictions, Swift and Bailey will not be producing as many vehicles as usual this year so stock is limited. If you’d like to purchase a 2021 model, we recommend ordering sooner rather than later to ensure you secure yours before stocks deplete.
Swift’s 2021 ranges comprise the Sprite, Sprite Super, Challenger, Challenger X, Elegance and Elegance Grande. They all benefit from low energy LED lighting throughout, fast heat up Truma Combi-Boiler, well-equipped kitchen and washrooms and the exclusive Swift Command, a system that allows you to control everything in the caravan at the touch of a button - or even from your smartphone!
