If you want to buy a family-friendly camper, Camper Trailer Australia Editor Emma Ryan says that the Jayco Swift is 'perfect for lazy days by the beach'.

SPECIFICATIONS: JAYCO SWIFT ON ROAD

I found the Swift’s simplicity to be a breath of fresh air. At just 778kg, I hardly noticed it behind CTA’s Pajero, its modest width and low profile contributing to the ease of towing and affording great visibility from the driver’s seat. This manageability on the road is an attractive quality indeed for the first timers who are likely to be the target market for this camper. And with a ball weight of 63kg, it’ll be suitable for most mid-size family cars.

THE VERDICT

All in all, the Jayco Swift is a modest yet functional camper trailer whose core philosophy is one of simplicity and ease-of-use. It has a surprisingly spacious internal living area for its slim dimensions, and with the addition of the optional awning and walls would comfortably accommodate a young family of four on its memory-making outdoor adventures.
