SMART HT (Hi-Tech) is the most exciting breakthrough in caravan construction since their inception in the 1960's. It features patented technology and takes caravan construction to a new level.
It uses a number of revolutionary, innovative materials and technologies not seen in the caravan industry before.
It has been in research, development and testing for five years and takes the recently launched SMART intelligent construction system to a new level with the use of hi-tech materials.
Such is the advance in design and construction many elements have been filed with the UK patent office.

The Mass in Running Order (MRO) comprises:
1. The mass of the empty caravan as supplied by Swift including loose items such as the hook-up cable, kit bag, entrance step, manuals etc
2. 10kg allowance for LPG
The MRO is calculated with the fresh water tank, toilet flush tank and water heater empty. If you travel with water in the fresh water tank, toilet flush tank and the water heater the payload will reduce accordingly.
The personal effects is based on the number of berths and the length of the caravan and includes an allowance of 20kg for a leisure battery, The Maximum Technical Permissible Laden Mass (MTPLM) is the maximum mass allowed when the caravan is fully laden.
Warning: Under no circumstances should the MTPLM be exceeded.
Please Note: Any dealer fit options will reduce the overall payload available to the user of the caravan.
If you require additional payload it is possible to upgrade the MTPLM to the upper limit. Please contact your Swift caravan dealer for more information.
Bed Sizes: Please note that the front double bed sizes quoted are for seating configurations without a 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.
Awning Sizes: Due to varying awning designs and sizes the awning sizes given are approximate only. Specific awning sizes must be confirmed by your dealer or awning manufacturer prior to purchase.
Customers should verify the actual dimensions of their touring caravan before committing to anything that could be impacted by these dimensions.
