Hi Rudy, if your Swift has the seperate nose cone, the 1991 will not fit, because the 1991 nose cone is fully part of the construction.

The width might differ.

Place a photo of your caravan then I might be able to assist with advice.

Rudy, I don't think the tent will fit due to the seperated nose cone.

The lenght between both models diffier from each other, because of the nose cone.

I sold my 1994 model Gypsey Romany full tent last month for R 5000. It was still in a new condition.

As a matter of interest, the Romany’s with the island bed up front and the Caravette fives of that era uses the same tent dimensions, and will fit your van perfectly provided the distance between the front and rear horisontal poles are the same.

Happiness is not getting what you like, but liking what you get.
