How to enjoy caravanning

There’s no better way to enjoy your caravanning than by joining a club, especially an owners’ club like ours.
If you own one of the brands shown at the foot of the page you will be made most welcome so why not give it a try?

For more information about us and how to join click here.

Out and about in July

As an example of how we spread our rallies around the country - in July we are in Harrogate Yorks (to coincide with the Tour de France Grand Depart and the Great Yorkshire Show), Pulloxhill Beds, Tewkesbury Glos (to coincide with a Medieval Fayre), Birdham West Sussex, Ambleside Cumbria, Bishopthorpe York, Old Windsor Berks, Himley Hall Dudley and last but not least Weston Super Mare Somerset.

Why not join the Club and see what other interesting rallies are taking place this year?

Continental / holiday rallies
This year we're running no less than 5 continental rallies across France, Belgium and Germany. We're also running 3 holiday rallies in the UK including one that takes in the start of the Tour de France in Yorkshire.

Swift Factory visit
In September this year we'll be making a welcome return to Swift's state of the art factory in Cottingham to see how our caravans and motorhomes are made. Top of the must see list will be the £1.25m routing machine at the heart of Swift's SMART production technology. It's huge but can machine panels to an accuracy of 0.25mm.

Rally programme

The Swift Owners Club runs around 75 rallies across the UK and Europe each year. These include both continental and UK holiday rallies. Each provides a great opportunity for you to relax with people who share the same passions as you. Swift Group caravans and motorhomes are equally welcome. We even have a downloadable file that allows you to put the rally locations in your sat-nav as points of interest.

What is a rally?
A rally is a Club organised gathering of members and their caravans or motorhomes with the general idea of socialising, having fun and going to interesting places. Find out more on our reports page

How much do rallies cost?

Rallies are normally very cheap to attend. There is a rally fee of £4-6 depending on the length of the rally and then a site fee of typically £4 to £8 per night. A limited number of rallies have electric hook ups and these may add £2-3 per night. There is sometimes a social cost of a pound or two to cover the hire of a village hall or other costs. Holiday and continental rallies can be quite a bit more expensive as we normally use commercial sites with electric hook ups. Also meals and tours are often included in the costs.

Year round rallies

At the Swift Owners Club we rally all the year round so there's no excuse for leaving your caravan or motorhome gathering moss outside the main season. Indeed we run something like 35 rallies in the period October to March. Halloween nights, Bonfire nights, Christmas parties, Christmas shopping, New Year rallies, Panto rallies, Valentine rallies, warm up rallies - we've got the lot!

Support and Spares

This website hosts a comprehensive support section with caravan specifications, user handbooks, manuals & articles. We also have details of specialist parts supplier and breakers for all your Swift caravan spares - and of course you can gain access to the Swift Talk forum, which is managed by Swift.
