Base Camp Anyone?

Do we have ANY members out there who have base camps? I went to Airstream.com and colonialairstream.com and couldn't find layouts, etc. My sister wants to see one? Anyone seen one at a dealer or at Jackson Center?

We passed one being pulled on I-70, somewhere along western edge of Kansas/eastern Colorado. It's a surprising sight on the highway; it looks so new. ~G Wonder if it was a forum member?

Bend over, grab your ankles, and take a deep breath.

Yes, for a mere $27K you too can have the BaseCamp experience!

Yeah right..... I saw one of these at the local dealership here in Orange County. At first I thought it was real cooool looking. Looked inside and it's a 'Whole lot of modern nothin' It didn't look like it could hold any 'toys' larger than a motorcycle...what use is it? Really!

I haven't seen one in person yet, but I heard it decribed as "Darth Vader's horse trailer". I'm sure there's a market for them somewhere.

Good bargaining on a unit that's not moving ... what's that? An 18% to 25% discount? You could get a vintage Bambi or Caravel in pretty good condition for that price. Now, people could really talk about that! Please pass the Nuvite.

Cute, But...

Yea baby, it's cute, AND you could tow it with a lighter duty vehicle. Might be cool for a weekender, but let's compare it to a Casita.

This one did seem to have all of the bells and whistles including a tent. Wonder what they are really going to sell for?

Darth Vaders Horse trailer?

Now thats just flat out funny.

I do agree with Foiled that the comparison should be with a Casitas type unit. That does seem to be the market its aimed at.

Not my cuppa either....

Hello all -

The BaseCamp is not my cuppa tea either.... If I want cramped spaces then my crawl space has what I need.... and that project sits and waaiiitttssss.

Then again I met a couple that camps in one of those 4x10 trailers with the pull out kitchen in the back clamshell.... They seemed to enjoy it thoroghly. Pulled it with a Buick.

The trailerwas home built. It had all they needed. I looked inside (queen bed with TV/VCR/DVD) and the kitchen was exactly what they wanted/used. They both mentioned that the forced simplicity was something they really enjoyed. Great for them.

Me, I used my AC while they sweated. Mine suited me, theirs suited them. Just as it should be.

Of course, the home built trailer was decidely NOT $27K! My 34 didn't cost anywhere near that....

To each his own!

Am looking forward to seeing one on the road sometime....

Axel

Wow. I read the post above, first, and thought there must be alot of reallly negative comments that were made earlier. But no, just folks voicing an opinion. All seemed pretty tame to me. ?? Well, there was that ankle comment. Personally, I think the BaseCamp looks pretty cool. Ron

Hello airsick - Welcome to the AirForums.

I see this is your second post and the first one was about your need to sell your Basecamp. Good Luck in selling it, and when you do can you please post the difference in purchase price and your selling price. I would be interested in how others find a used Basecamp and the resale value of such.

I feel that at one point in my life the Basecamp would have been a perfect fit but now find the full size campers much more comfortable.

Good Luck and have a safe journey to Mexico.

Paula,

There are seveal at the lot here at JC - and it is said that they are here because sales are not as strong as predicted. I'd suggest that your sister see if she can make a deal.

They are good looking. Interesting looking, anyway.

Sorry - I just noticed that this is an old thread.

Pat
