A Trip to Cottingham

It's a four-hour drive up the A1 to the Swift Group HQ.....then we're meeting Tom Anderton  who, after sorting the formalities, completes the hand-over of an immaculately prepared Elegance. It's the first time we've had the chance to see one of these in the flesh and we're impressed - and we're not easily impressed after all these caravanning years...

"Please don't destroy it"

We stay overnight at a great little CL in nearby Bonby to check out the van. We're used to a twin axle Sterling Searcher but we really like the Elegance decor, with it's up-market touches, sense of style and the little innovations (like a sliding wardrobe door)  that maximise the use of space. Everything works too! 
But what we're really interested in is the solidity of construction - there's a sense that this is up to the rigours of Iceland...hard to put a finger on it, but it feels right. Time will tell, of course, and there's a long way to go yet. 

Not long now...
