If 2020 turns out to be the Year of the Budget Motorhome, here’s the range that could spearhead it all. Swift, the UK’s most prolific ‘van manufacturer, has launched a new line-up where low price is everything.

The Edge, designed for families, offers five models, and we took an early look at the six-berth 476, one of three overcabs.

On the road for £50,125 might not strike you as ‘budget’. But unless you’re keen and can grab an early Edge with Euro 6b engine – in which case, the 476 would come in at £48,255 – your vehicle will have one of Fiat’s latest Euro 6d engines, which adds vehicle excise duty of £2315.

At the time of writing, and despite intense lobbying by the NCC, these charges will apply to almost every new motorhome purchased with a Euro 6d engine.
