Swift's motorhome offering just keeps on building year-on-year and 2016 is no different.

For the 2016 season, Swift have a number of exciting motorhome options available, including the Swift Rio, which launched in time for the 2015 season to much critical acclaim.

2016 also sees the introduction of Swift's enhanced SMART Plus construction system, featuring a new sandwich floor construction with a GRP outer skin providing greater durability from the elements, hail resistant roof and much more.

Swift Rio

Launched in 2015 to much critical acclaim, the Swift Rio is a sporty, compact motorhome, ideal for first timers or those looking for something more smaller than a majority of other motorhomes on the market today.

Filling the gap in the market between larger motorhomes and van conversions, the Rio is a mere 2.6m wide and under six metres in length, the Rio is designed to provide a more compact alternative than the bigger and bulkier motorhomes on the market today, whilst encompassing everything we've come to expect form Swift, including quality build and design both inside and out.

For 2016, four Rio layouts are available, namely the two-berth Rio 310, Rio 320 and Rio 325, as well as four-berth Rio 340.

Swift Bolero

The enhanced Swift Bolero is currently available in five layouts for 2016 and, with plenty of options to choose form within the range, including two and four-berth options, this is a very family-friendly choice for motorhome connoisseurs.

These models boast premium features as you would come to expect from Swift, as well as leading edge design elements in order to enhance your motorhoming experience.

Both 130bhp and 150bhp engines are available with Fiat's Comfort-Matic automatic gearbox for the ultimate in driving comfort and performance. The specially priced Vogue pack adds upgrades that include cab air-conditioning, cruise control, a twin-view reversing camera and Status 570 TV aerial.

Swift Kon-tiki

Synonymous with impressive style and high standards, the Kon-Tiki provides for a combination of comfort, practicality and design innovation.

Soft furnishings and interior finishes are more opulent for the new season and its 'Black Edition' status gives the ultimate in specification as standard.

Carefully designed and cleverly detailed the spacious interiors provide the maximum in comfort and practicality.

To create the perfect ambience at night the interior can be lit with overlocker lighting, dimmable spots and the feature lit kitchen splashback which all use energy efficient LEDs.

For luxury at bedtime, all fixed beds are fitted with the exclusive Duvalay Duvalite mattress, containing lightweight yet sumptuously comfortable memory fibre technology.

Fully equipped, the Kon-tiki is the pinnacle of the Swift range of motorhomes and comes with an impressive specification, including a 120W solar panel, exterior shower and BBQ point for alfresco living.


As one of the best-selling ranges in the Swift Group collection, the Escape motorhome range is a very popular choice, available in both hi-line and low-line versions.

Available in a choice of two low-line and four high-line models, all powered by a 130bhp Euro 5+ turbo diesel with a 6-speed gearbox and an automatic option, the Escape is ideal for young or 'three-generation' families. Three models have four belted travelling seats and two layouts can have six, ideal for children and grandchildren.

The modestly priced Comfort Pack, inclusive of a Winter Pack, is full of great features and benefits, giving you the option to increase the specification of your new Escape even further.


Bessacarr is renowned for classic styling and luxury specification and 2016 is no different. 'Aralie Sen' woodgrain with smoked oak inserts to the gloss upper locker doors combined with rich dark brown and cream soft furnishings gives a 'boutique hotel' feel to the interior.

Exclusive to Swift and designed to give you the ultimate night's sleep, an exclusive Duvalay Duvalite mattress, with lightweight memory fibre technology comes fitted in all fixed bed models.

The cab comes with captain style seats and a DAB radio with bluetooth phone connection, handy storage area and USB charging port.

The cherished Bessacarr brand is a true all season motorhome. You'll be comfortable all year round thanks to the powerful Truma Combi boiler, easily controlled by a new digital panel, and Winter Pack fitted as standard.


Ideal for a number of different options, including everyday use, sport, relaxing holidays or business, the Autocruise van conversion range is incredibly versatile.

Each of the four layouts available for 2016 offers all the comforts of larger coachbuilt models in a more manageable size with real car like performance.

The enduring popularity of the Autocruise Panel Van range is proof of its ability to out match its rivals in specification, features and looks and continually offer layouts that are in demand and style.

'Aralie Sen' woodgrain with an ashen brown hue adorns the furniture and upper locker doors, which sport a gloss finish and house 'Smoked Oak' lower inlays.

'Edison' soft furnishings with a monochrome timeless class and chrome sockets, switches and push button locker catches give the interior a contemporary feel. Ergonomic travellers seats complement the captains style cab seats ensuring driver and passengers alike reach their destination in the utmost comfort.
