With its permanent double bed layout, featuring full-width rear washroom, well-equipped kitchen and large lounge, the Kon-Tiki 659 is probably most people''s idea of a dream motorhome.
For a touring couple it could be the ultimate home-from-home, giving them their own luxury apartment on wheels.
The 659 is fitted with Truma''s gas/electric Combi system, which heats the water and provides blown- air from the same unit. There are several vents for the blown-air system, including one in the rear washroom.
The Kon-Tiki boasts a very practical storage locker under the offside front dinette seating, accessed via an external locker door. A section of this extends under the main floor, thanks to the low-line Al-Ko chassis, making it a good place to store longer items such as the winding arm for the standard Fiamma roll-out awning.
Both cab seats are fitted on swivel bases, so the best lounge set-up is to use these seats facing the rear, where they combine with the twin inward-facing settees to provide enough space for up to eight people to sit. Alternatively, if there''s just two of you, why not sit in the cab seats and stretch your legs out along the settees. A very thoughtful touch is the inclusion of a spotlight and mains socket on both sides of the cab. This means that anyone sitting in a cab seat has light to read a book by, plus there''s somewhere to plug in a laptop.
The main reason people choose this type of layout is, of course, for the permanent rear bed, to avoid the hassle of making this up each night. The Swift scores well here, with a firm mattress, a pair of spotlights for bedtime reading, plus even a small shelf for your mugs.
After the permanent rear bed, this Kon-Tiki''s most appealing feature is probably the large rear washroom. This occupies the whole of the rear of the vehicle. It''s also very practical, with a large separate shower cubicle, a washbasin that has a fair amount of worktop around it, plus a swivel cassett
