Default New van today!

About 3 weeks we wandered into our local dealers to have a nosey at their reopening offers. After a derisory trade-in offer for the van we bought new from them 4 years ago, and ludicrously expensive finance (same interest rate as 4 years ago) we had a look on t’internet. Found exactly what we wanted with a great discount and much lower finance interest (from the same lender....) So agreed a deal with/without trade in. Sold our van on ebay within 24 hours. Today we picked up our new Eccles 580 Lux and oh boy, what a fabulous van! Our 4th Swift in a row and second new van. Better build and finish than the previous Quattro EW based dealer special (albeit the best van so far was the 2010 Eccles). Towed home (about 30 miles) like a dream, rock steady. So we set off on Saturday to Cornwall for a holiday booked last year with a van we hadn’t expected to have!BBB13317-D80B-4374-A0E5-6DF2FD762012.jpeg

Adrian888 - Loved the photo.
You have a really great looking outfit.
We are looking to maybe trading our 2015 Sterling Continental 480 for something a little bigger, but no heavier.

Safe journey to Cornwall.

580 is a great layout in the Swift range.

We love our Conqueror 580.
