Come now Rusky, not all Swift-group products are bad and I really hope your new one is now well and truly sorted.
Have looked at a couple of second hand E370s (I think it's the Ducato-based panel van conversion) and they look pretty fine and dandy to me.
We've absolutely no complaints about our 1998 E695 in terms of build quality, layout and durability and have found Swift's after sales service to be fine so far. When I asked for an owners' handbook they not only sent me one by return but also checked whether previous owners had completed a safety recall for attention to the dinette safety belts. They hadn't, and Swift have now booked the MH in for this to be done, paying for everything including fuel, a hire car and overnight stay near the Alko factory. I reckon this is pretty good service.
We also had two Swift-group caravans which were absolutely fine over the ten years we had them, only having to replace service items like tyres and the odd light bulb.
I guess, like you, we like the layouts and design of Swift products. So Neil, if the E370 appeals to you and the one you're looking at seems in good fettle I'd say go for it!
