Swift Group Commercial Director, Nick Page, said: “We are extremely excited to launch the Basecamp Special Edition reinforcing the adventurous and dynamic approach synonymous with Basecamp. This amazing new model is destined to widen Basecamp’s appeal, enticing even more people to go further and experience all that the great outdoors has to offer.”



Launched in 2016, Swift Basecamp has been phenomenally popular, quickly gaining a loyal following as it shaped a new Crossover Camping lifestyle enticing ‘young at heart’ adventurers of all ages.

Designed for action with its funky and modern appearance and customisable graphics, Basecamp has been an inspiration for many in their pursuit of new outdoor experiences away from the crowd.

The popularity of Basecamp has been forged through its distinctive shape, lighter weight, utilitarian materials and excellent design including anchor points for stowing bulky kit and removable canvas storage bag.

Tardis like, the compact nature of Basecamp belies its spacious and airy interior with the large opening panoramic window bathing the lounge with natural light. At night, the lounge converts easily into a relaxing sleeping space with supersize double bed. For refuelling, the kitchen provides all that’s needed to rustle up a delicious meal, and after the day’s adventure, there’s a dedicated washroom to enjoy a refreshing shower.

Add in the super value Plus Pack to benefit from a host of desirable features including a solar panel, external points for gas, mains and shower, and oven with integral grill.
