2017 Airstream Basecamp®

Our most nimble Airstream yet, Basecamp is the very definition of get-up-and-go. It’s compact, light, and easy to tow, and the perfect place to land after a day of adventure. Storage is versatile and abundant, sleeping space will surprise you, and you’ll still have all the essentials, plus some added luxuries. So get going. Basecamp is ready when you are.

What is an Airstream Basecamp®?

Think of it as a personal portal to the adventure of a lifetime. Basecamp allows customers to create a home away from home. Its convenience and streamlined construction become an enabler and catalyst for adventures both big and small.

Every detail of the Basecamp is designed with adventure-seekers in mind. From dramatic, wraparound tinted front windows, to the smallest, smartly placed storage container, Basecamp delivers the most refined road-trekking experience available—and with the least amount of effort required from the Basecamper. Sturdy and roadworthy, this roaming habitat is also surprisingly rich with comfort—because after a day of discovering new trails, nothing’s better than a hot shower, a cold beverage, and sacking out on real bed. In addition, Basecamp is a way to break down barriers. For longtime campers who aspire to owning an Airstream, Basecamp gives them an entry point. For camping and adventure novices, it offers a threshold to new territory. Sure, Basecamp is incredibly rugged and durable, comfortable and easy. But the best thing is, Basecamp helps get you out there to see it all, do it all, and experience life to the fullest!

Deep in the heart of every true camper, there’s a primal desire to seek adventure—to escape everyday existence and break free to explore winding trails and breathtaking sunsets.The Basecamp was built for those who have rediscovered this instinct. You know them—the intrepid explorers who take long weekends to pursue dirt roads and unknown stories. They are the remarkable men and women who never forget that simplicity and nimbleness is freeing, and that fresh air helps life make more sense.Even from youth, Basecampers have been drawn to the outdoors—it’s integral to their being. As adults, they’re still yearning to get out there—though definitely not yearning to spend precious time on tasks like packing and unpacking. Now they can also appreciate superior design and comfort. They know that a beautiful Rocky Mountain sunset seen through the mildew-tinted vinyl windows of a pop-up is SO last decade. What sets them apart? They’re avid adventurers, forever young-at-heart, but now grown to recognize and value the enormous difference between camping—and Basecamping.

Ready When You Are.

Lightweight and towable with an SUV. Comfortably seats five and sleeps two. Just as comfortable in the campsite as it is off the beaten path. The new Basecamp packs everything you need into one versatile trailer that’s ready for anything this wide world has to offer.

Exploring. Recharging. Everything in Between.

Hit the road, hit the trails, and get going. Basecamp is full of features that help you fuel up for the day, then clean up and sack out when it’s all said and done. From the rear hatch for your gear to the on-board restroom to the convertible living space that forms a relaxing bed, it’s all right there with you, along for the ride.

Hitch Up and Go.

Basecamp’s compact, lightweight design opens up all sorts of possibilities. Head out to the frozen tundra. Spend a week in the blazing desert. Pack up and go anywhere you please, with nothing holding you back.

When you’re surrounded by snow, the Truma Combi Eco Plus heating system will handle both water and cabin heating with world-class efficiency. No matter where you’re headed, Basecamp is ready.

Feel Free to Branch Out.

Every detail has been considered to make the basecamp feel like a home away from home: it even features a lighted handle and doorbell. In the wide galley, you'll find a 8" deep sink with a removable Corian® cover, a stainless steel oven, and cooktop with glass cover. Now America's greatest lands are right at your doorstep (and it’s made of a durable, premium, lightweight aluminum).
