From panel van conversions to coachbuilt motorhomes, the Swift Group portfolio includes a broad range of homes on wheels.

Between the Swift, Bessacarr, Escape and Autocruise ranges, the company manufacturers more than 40 layouts, with prices starting at around the £35,000 mark and rising to £70,000 and above.


One of the most popular panel van conversion makes, the Autocruise range comes in two and four-berth options.

Based on a choice of Peugeot Boxer and Fiat Ducato chassis, the most recent version boasts a Euro 5-compliant engine, while key equipment includes a Tracker Retrieve anti-theft device and a Truma Combi blown-air heating and hot water system.

Optional extras include an automatic gearbox, a microwave oven, easy-clean upholstery and a roll-out canopy awning.


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

This coachbuilt range comes fitted with a 2.3-litre Fiat engine and a six-speed gearbox, while creature comforts include a more powerful 3KW Truma space heater.

For those looking for a bit more luxury, the Comfort Pack is available as a cost extra, and it includes cab air conditioning, pleated window blinds and an electronic entrance step.


A venerable brand, Bessacarr has been around for many years, and under the ownership of the Swift Group, it is currently available in the entry-level E400 and premium E500 ranges.

With plenty of options range from two to six berths, this is a very family-friendly choice for motorhome connoisseurs.

These models boast well-stocked kitchenettes, with stylish Acrylic splashbacks as well as Dometic 8-series fridges.

Swift Sundance, Bolero and Kon-Tiki

Completing the range is Swift's trio of coachbuilt motorhome ranges, which all share the company's signature Mali Acacia woodgrain for a warm interior feel.

The Swift Sundance offers a strong entry-level choice, which features a Truma Combi boiler and Kitami soft furnishings.

Moving up the range and the Swift Bolero is a refined choice, which boasts a stylish front sunroof and silver/burgundy graphics.

Finally, the Swift Kon-Tiki offers exceptional levels of space, thanks to its triple-axle Al-Ko chassis and an enviable specification list, including Alde central heating.

What's more, every motorhome built by Swift Group comes backed up by a ten-year bodyshell warranty for added peace of mind.
