For Auto-Trail the story was a new panel van range and a new Imala 730 coachbuilt model while Swift announced model-wide improvements and a brace of new Bolero coachbuilts and Rio panel vans.

The Auto-Trail Imala 730 is available in Lo-line or Hi-line profiles, all on a GVW of 3,500kg or 3,650Kg as a no-cost option. This is a two-berth motorhome with a rear, king-sized island bed. The 730 is 7.26m long with a 130bhp engine as standard; 148bhp and 177bhp are available as options. Fittings include a tall, slim-line 96-litre fridge, microwave, Status 570 retractable TV aerial and LED down lighting. It comes with Media Pack 1 that includes an 18.5in drop-down LCD TV/DVD player, AM/FM radio tuner, Bluetooth for audio streaming, steering wheel radio controls and a colour reversing-camera. On the road price for the Imala 730 starts at £46,995.

Meanwhile, Swift has announced an overhaul of the Bolero range along with two new models. Across the range the front has a new GRP pod housing an opening sky-view window and round the back there’s a new rear panel with sportier-looking lower valance.

The first of the new models is the Bolero 612EK which has two travel seats and berths, with a rear kitchen and parallel front lounge. It’s on a GVW of 3,500kg with a 2.3-litre, 130bhp engine. The other one is the Bolero 744PR which offers four berths and seats with a traditional rear U-shaped lounge and front travelling dinette and side seat. This has a GVW of 4,000kg and a 2.3-litre, 150bhp engine. Larger models can specify the Fiat Comfort-Matic automatic gearbox with a 150bhp engine, or an automatic gearbox with the 130bhp engine on shorter models.
