MASSES: The masses are calculated in accordance to EU regulation 1230/2012 and NCC code of practice 304.

The Mass in Running Order (MRO) comprises:

  1. The mass of the empty caravan as supplied by Swift including loose items such as the hook-up cable, kit bag, entrance step, manuals etc.
  2. 10kg allowance for LPG.

The MRO is calculated with the fresh water tank, toilet flush tank and water heater empty. If you travel with water in the fresh water tank, toilet flush tank and the water heater the payload will reduce accordingly.

The personal effects is based on the number of berths and the length of the caravan and includes an allowance of 20kg for a leisure battery.

The Maximum Technical Laden Mass (MTPLM) is the maximum mass allowed when the caravan is fully laden.

WARNING: Under no circumstances should the MTPLM be exceeded.

# The dimensions given are approximate due to slight variations in suspension ride heights, loading conditions and tyre pressures

Customers should verify the actual dimensions of their touring caravan before committing to anything that could be impacted by these dimensions.

Please note: Any dealer fit options will reduce the overall payload available to the user of the caravan. If you require additional payload it is possible to upgrade the MTPLM to the upper limit.

Please contact your caravan dealer for more information.
