There are Airstreams out there that are bigger (and nicer) than some of our first apartments. The original tiny home, the original home-away-from-home, Airstream silver bullets bring a bit of luxe and a lot of good design to the open road. And here’s a model that’s ready to go farther down that road than previously possible.
The Basecamp is the smallest of the Airstream offerings which means it can get places the twenty-eight foot Globetrotter just can’t. Yet Basecamp still packs a kitchen, dinette with seating, wet bath, storage everywhere, and sleeping for two. Plus the hatch opening in the rear makes it easier to slide in big gear like bikes and kayaks for transport. With a max weight of 3,500 pounds, you don’t need an F-450 to tow it. Your Explorer, Tacoma, even your turbocharged Sorento will do the job.
Add in the Basecamp X Package and get upgraded tires, stainless rock guards and a three inch lift kit with an increased departure angle so you can really get gone, and head down some twisty, bumpy roads. When you get where you’re going, pop out the optional tents that attach to the side door or rear hatch to add 120 square feet of extra sleeping/living space. If you’re daydreaming about where this thing could take you, you’re not alone. Pricing begins at $37k and some of us are ready to list all earthly possessions on Craigslist to see if we can swing it.
