Hi there,

This is a long shot but does anyone have a swift challenger sport 586 or special of that model etc, who can do me a massive favour and measure something....
We have ours stored in France, and we are here and Have bought a new Vango Kalari 520Awning.
I am panicking now that it will be too big. We realise the front airbeam will have to sit a little low due to the window at the front and sloping front. But I would really like to know the measurement from the rear edge of the caravan outside to 5.2 metres. Where does it finish. Does that make sense??
So a big ask, but if you have the same or similar van and a tape measure and van on the drive,.... Would you ?? If possible, pretty please!!
We can always return our awning if not out of the box, which it isnt yet.
Thank you

No worries folks, its not the most common layout of van.......
We have decided to swap our Kalari 520 for the Kalari 420 which will definitely fit - and get the annexe for some extra storage space..... So happy days and happy new airbeam awning. France in lessthan 5 weeks.😊

taneth, if you go to the Swift specification site, you will find a plan view of your van with all the measurements, if you find the overall length, with a bit of dividing you should be able to work out where it will sit
