Hi, we recently got our 2018 Basecamp. I read all the posts in the Basecamp problems thread which was super useful, so thank you to everyone who posted in that. Sorry to everyone who were beta-testers for us, I hope you are happier these days.

A couple weeks ago we took it to Astoria, Oregon. We love the Basecamp! We're planning to take it out once more during Thanksgiving week before winterizing it.

We're a family of 5 with 3 kids ages 6-10, so the Basecamp seems like it'd be way too small for us, but it's fine so far. The kids slept inside and we slept outside in a tent on this trip, but we think we can all sleep inside if one of the kids sleeps on the floor (which they seem excited to do). We bought the optional tents but they haven't been delivered yet.




The Basecamp even fits in our garage! The tow vehicle is currently a 2008 Jeep Commander, but will get a new tow vehicle soon.

The only problem we had with it is that the interior handle mounted on the wall by the side door came loose. It was screwed into the aluminum and the holes were too big so 3 of the 4 screws pulled out pretty easily. I replaced them with bolts, which was easy, and it holds much better.

Fort Stevens State Park is a wonderful place to camp, and Astoria is a cute town. So glad you took the family and the new Basecamp there for a visit!

First Adventure with Basecamp

So - these are from my first adventure in our new Basecamp. This was at the Pisgah Mt. Bike Festival at Oskar Blues Reeb Ranch - near Brevard, NC. I decided this would be a good test run with just me before I took the wife and our youngest out on an adventure. I did figure some things out - like how best to set up the heat, how long it takes to get hot water when running from battery/propane, needing the seal the shower door so it doesnít leak, etc.

All in all it was awesome - and a beautiful morning waking up the the fog. Someone told me as he was walk by that more people were stopping to take photos of the BC than anything else at the festival. I had many people stopping and asking to take a photo or look inside.
