Airstream Basecamp 20 Travel Trailer Revealed With More Room, Features
Just in time for the new camping season, Airstream unveiled the new Basecamp 20, which joins the company’s best-selling Basecamp 16. Offering “all the unique advantages of the original”, this new caravan can be described as the top-level motorhome with its larger platform and more features.
Airstream says the new model is suitable for novice and experienced camper users and is built “especially for adventurers who are looking for a larger, sturdier trailer to travel new terrain off the beaten track.” The Basecamp 20 is also available with a rugged 20X package, which adds off-road functionality.
Thanks to its increased dimensions compared to the Basecamp 16, the new trailer has a larger departure angle and larger wheels, which makes it easily towable off the paved road. Airstream says it can still be towed with a mid-size SUV or small truck, although it is wider, longer and taller than the original.
Still thanks to its larger dimensions, the Basecamp 20 offers a larger bed with flexible living, sleeping and dining positions in addition to a foldable dining area at the front, which can be converted into a comfortable bed for two children. Customers can possibly get some nice features like solar panels and a controller, a microwave and an air conditioner.
If you opt for the 20X pack, it adds Goodyear all-terrain tires and larger aluminum wheels, increased ground clearance from the bottom of the axle under full load, tinted window protections and a double step in steel.
“We designed the Basecamp 20 and 20X to generate increased interest and access to outdoor exploration,” said Justin Humphreys, vice president of sales at Airstream. “Its larger size will appeal to adventurous families who want all the comforts of home in a robust and efficient travel trailer.”
Orders can now be placed, with the first deliveries expected in the coming weeks. The Basecamp 20 has an MSRP of $ 45,900, while the Basecamp 20X carries a starting price of $ 48,900.
