Hi all, we have a Swift Archway Woodford 1997 2 birth L-shaped lounge end bathroom, we have been trying to get a manual/hand book for this? it has jubilee sheilds all over it as it was Swift's 25 yrs Jubilee, we have found several other vans around the same age but all are different in some way so we presume ours was a special/limited edition, does anyone else have one and do they have a manual/handbook if so a photocopy would be great and of course we would pay any out of pocket expencies, we have been sent the standard one by Swift but it is very different in all respects, thanks inadvance for your help

I moved this post from the For Sale forum. Swift Caravans was founded in 1965 so their 25 year jubilee would have been in 1990 not 1997. The jubilee in question is that of White Arches Caravans who were founded in 1972 by 1972 Peter and Norma Sharpe. The Swift Archway Woodford is a special edition from them. Despite that it would have had the same handbook as all other Swift caravans made in 1997. Operating instructions for the water heater (Carver Cascade 2), space heater (Carver 3000 with Fanmaster), toilet (Thetford C200 manual flush) and fridge etc. can be found in the Support section of this website under OEM handbooks.

The best way to get to know your van is to join the Club and come rallying with us so fellow owners can give you all the tips and tricks.

Best wishes,

i contacting Swift about a handbook for our conqueror 600 and they were really helpful. they asked us to send them the chassis number which also told us our caravan was a year newer than we were told when we bought it :D after we had one this they emailed us back the complete handbook all 70 pages :shock: :)
