Swift's latest offering in this luxury range is designed for fans of motorsports and outdoor events, who need to stay connected off-grid, says Peter Baber.
Motorhome luxury, for some, means plush interiors, sizeable water tanks and Alde heating.
But for many motorsports and outdoor-event fans, it means a 'van that will take them off-grid in comfort.
Specialist manufacturers have catered for this market for years. Now a much larger firm, Swift, is putting its toe in this particular water.
Swift has a connection to motorsports: founder Peter Smith and son Guy are rally and racing drivers, and the firm sponsors the Swift Rally Team of Matt Edwards and Darren Garrod, winners of the 2018 British Rallying Championship.
Now Swift has expanded its luxurious Kon-tiki range with the Dynamic 675, for the moment only available at Brownhills. It's almost (but not quite) a dealer special.
There's a 25A/300SW battery charger, a 230-litre insulated underfloor fresh-water tank and a 145-litre waste-water tank.
On the road
Overall MTPLM is 7200kg, and you can fit a motorbike in the capacious rear garage.
This configuration has a towing limit of 3500kg and comes with a towbar.
The cab has air-suspended Luxus seating in leather, and you also get rear-view and side-view cameras.
Lounging & dining
Our test model featured a full Pullman-style front dinette, with six travel seats, and a sofa on the nearside.
A Lounge version with a half-dinette (four travel seats) is also available.
Seats are decked out in sporty Dynamic branding, and you get a 12V socket and two USB sockets under the forward-facing dinette seat. Two speakers in the ceiling leading up to the overcab bed should provide all the sound you need.
Across the aisle, you get a Dometic fridge that opens both ways, and a microwave on top. The cupboard here is a useful location for any TV, too.
The overcab bed impressed us. A heavy-duty zippable cloth partition should keep out the light, and you get a choice of lighting colour, two USBs and a roof light. The third double, made from the dinette, requires three infill cushions.
We were surprised to find no cab blinds - you have to make do with suction pads.

The Dynamic looks a sleeker, more rounded product than some of the vehicles currently offered by smaller companies focused on this market - it's very classy inside, too. It's certainly not cheap, but it has everything that you could possibly need - bar some small omissions, such as cab blinds.
You should certainly, however, be able to head off properly equipped for the adventure.
