Updating an already popular range such as the Swift Charisma or Sterling Europa was always going to be a hard task. Yet Swift Caravans has managed to pull it off - by replacing the entire ranges with two brand new futuristic lineups.

The Swift Challenger Sport and Sterling Eccles Sport are entirely new caravans from the ground up - and next week Caravan Times will bring you a video feature with the new look for 2012.

To whet your appetite in the meantime, take a sneak peek here with our trailer.
