The Swagman "Next Generation" includes world first technology and innovation and we are very excited about this significant new product range. A big feature of the revolutionary technology is the patented Carbon fibre / Kevlar composite one-piece body construction. The body has been patented and will be called “Armourshell”. Unlike the traditional production process of individual wall construction, the Armourshell is fully moulded and seamless incorporating the roof, sidewalls, rear and front headers and results in massively improved structural strength.

oh Morgan.. straight man for life... (I can NEVER have any fun around here!)

THE STEERING WHEEL IS ON THE WRONG SIDE TOO!!!!!!!

It is a nice looker, and at first glance, it looks like any other motorhome. Maybe a little shorter.

How come WE can't do interesting patterns with the gel coat?

At my first Rally ~
Mike: Gina, would you get me my drink from my trailer?"
Gina: "Sure Mike, which trailer is it?"
Mike: "The white one".

The motorhome looks generally like the ones here, because it's built on the same type of chassis (in this case a Roadmaster with a Cummins), and because there just are not many different good ways to arrange a coach on a rectangle of that size. It is a little surprising to me that they didn't take advantage of the moulded construction to vary a bit more from the generic bus shape, but that is the practical way to go and even traditional coaches now already use moulded end caps.

I assume that the patterns are painted, not gel coat. The spec is "Exterior Finish - Two Pack with final clear coat", which sounds like paint to me. Full body paint is a common feature here on higher-priced motorhomes.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
