If you’re after a Volkswagen Transporter with a bit of extra flare and versatility, consider a Swamper. Giving your van a more rugged, adventurous look and the ability to handle more challenging terrain, the basic VW Transporter Swamper that we sell here at Swiss Vans has alloy wheels, off-road tyres, and practical, plastic arch protectors. It’s the Volkwagen equivalent to the Ford Transit Custom Trail, and it’s a great choice if you love VW and tend towards the intrepid!
It could be based on the Transporter Startline in either the panel van or the kombi. As the Startline doesn’t need colour-coded bumpers like our WASP and Hornet models, it’s a great choice for the Swiss Vans Swamper. Depending on whether you go for panel or kombi, you get one or two rows of seats along with a roomy cargo area behind. Whatever escapade you have planned (or even for those impromptu expeditions), you’ll have plenty of space to be prepared.
With off-road tyres might come a more perilous itinerary, so if you think you’ll need extra clearance or you just like riding high and seeing the world, we can also offer a lift suspension upgrade at an additional cost. This makes the Swamper look even more unique and definitely helps with rough or rocky terrain.
And while the Swamper comes with FWD (front-wheel drive) as standard, there is an option for an upgrade to Volkswagen’s 4Motion (AWD, or all-wheel drive) system. Although it is a bit more expensive, 4Motion provides outstanding grip and stability whatever the weather, and it’s great at managing more difficult road surfaces. Or maybe I should say off-road surfaces!
If the VW Transporter Swamper appeals to you, whether for its distinctive, tough looks, its competence on tough routes, or a combination of the two, give us a call. Our friendly and helpful sales team can talk you through all of the options and available accessories: just because we start with a basic Swamper doesn’t mean you have to finish with one!
We’re known at Swiss Vans for the quality and longevity of the VW Transporters we sell, and the Swamper is no different. With free delivery and our low monthly payments, we’re confident that you’ll love your van as much as we love ours.
