There aren’t that many names in motorcaravanning better known than ‘Kon-tiki’ – Swift’s big coachbuilt that has been a mainstay within its ranges since its launch way back in the mid-1980s.

Over the years, it’s proved hugely popular with those buyers looking for a luxury motorhome with all the bells and whistles. 

So we were excited to hear earlier this year that Swift was to launch a fully refreshed version of the Kon-tiki; and it was with even greater anticipation that we tested the 675, an all-new, twin-fixed-bed layout for the 2019 season. 

Our test Kon-tiki was a high-line version, which adds a further two berths over the cab area. Combined with the double bed that can be made up from the cushions in the front lounge, this takes it to six berths in total. 

Choosing that overcab option (for no cost) means a small, 60kg reduction in the payload, but when it still remains at a whopping 888kg, you’re likely to consider this well-worthwhile – although bear in mind that there are only four belted seats.
