Bessacarr was a luxury tourer and the brand was top of the Swift tree. The 495 is a populAr model in the second hand market still The front dinette is very spacious and the side kitchen boasts stacks of worktop and storage. These tourers were not mass produced as such, they were well made and well put together luxury caravans built by Swift. The idea was to create a luxury caravan that would also hold appeal on the used market as well. The Bessacarr has such a good spec that most buyers won’t look at anything else once a Bessacarr is found. Brilliant end washroom is well designed with circular shower unit and decent wardrobe. Sophisticated interiors continue to provide the comfort, high specification and classic styling for which Bessacarr is renowned.

Externally, the Besscarr is built on a galvanised chassis, with a spare wheel. This 2 berth caravan is extremely stable and safe to tow on the road. There are also modern 13pin electrics and heavy-duty corner steadies. Almost new tyres, and the spare hasn't been used Windows all etched with the chassis number.

The body is constructed from one-piece high gloss aluminium sidewalls and moulded front and rear panels, set off by attractive graphite coloured decals and silver alloy wheels. Outside, there is a gas bbq point, lined external access locker, high level brake light and exterior access battery box.

Superb build, quality feel, excellent spec, brilliant kitchen design.
At the front of the caravan, 3 double glazed panoramic windows give a light and airy feel to the spacious lounge area / dinette which has wraparound seating which can be used as two single beds or as a large double utilising a pull out slat system mounted under the chest of drawers. The drawer has a handy fold-out coffee table. There is plenty of storage in the space frame design overhead 'aircraft-style' lockers and also under the seats. Above the seating area is a large electric Heki Roof light providing fresh air ventilation and light when required. All the windows feature blackout blinds, flycreens and night-ventilation latches. The soft furnishings (seat cushions and curtains) have all been recently cleaned and are in remarkably good condition for a 2002 caravan. The lighting is a mix of energy saving LED, 12v task lighting, ambient pelmet lighting and over-locker lighting, ensuring that the cameo is a very well lit and cosy place to be at night. There is an extra TV point (with 12v, 240v and aerial sockets). There is a built in CD/radio player.

There’s even the original Bessacarr logo-embroidered, inset doormat.
All windows are fitted with independent black-out blinds, curtains and fly-screens. The stable style door also has a fly-screen.
The 3002 heating /space heater and Truma water heater work off electric and gas and ensure that heating and hot water is available on demand.
