The story is all too common: Mr. X sells home and donates worldly possessions to travel across the country in an Airstream. Not to be outdone, even celebs have gotten in on the game. Matthew McConaughey made headlines in the aughts for his affinity for the futuristic vehicles. “There’s an old African proverb: Architecture is a verb,” he told Architectural Digest in 2008. And while you might not be ready to make any extreme life changes just yet, if you find traditional camping passé, it might be time to give an Airstream a whirl.
With a focus on sustainable features and materials, the Airstream x REI Co-op Special Edition Basecamp Trailer is compact (16-feet), and extremely lightweight, making it easy to tow. Inside, a smart floor plan includes all the necessary creature comforts required for a cross-country trip: a kitchen nestled in front of a panoramic window, a bathroom that fits perfectly in the middle complete with toilet and shower, and a convertible living space which transforms from a bed to a functional workspace.
Exclusive to the Special Edition Basecamp, is the option to upgrade to 360 watts of solar power and a 200Ah lithium battery bank which is sure to upgrade your travel experience whether boondocking or traveling between campsites. The trailer is equipped with rock guards and fender flares to help prevent damage from gravel and debris, and off-road tires with custom aluminum wheels.
