basecamp-inside“We designed Basecamp to rekindle the desire to explore nature and get outdoors,” said Airstream CEO and President Bob Wheeler. “Whether it’s for the long-time camper who has a garage full of high-end gear that’s no longer used, or for the person who has always wanted to get out more but was hesitant, Basecamp is the passport to unimaginable new experiences.”

Basecamp was designed in collaboration with Bryan Thompson, an automotive designer with more than 15 years of experience working with top global automotive brands. With a base weight of 2,585 pounds and maximum trailer capacity (GVWR) of 3,500 pounds, Basecamp is towable with a variety of small and mid-sized SUVs and Crossovers. The trailer has an MSRP of $34,900. Airstream dealers will begin receiving inventory in October.
