Or is there any cargo door/SUV type tent anyone recommends?
We have a 2008 Basecamp. One of the options available at the time we purchased it (2007) was a Kelty tent, made specifically for hooking onto the Basecamp. We have one, and though we seldom are in one place long enough to need to use it, it does fit well and is a good addition for extra space. I would imagine that you would be able to locate one somewhere. Let me know if you have any other questions. Here is a link to the owner's manual. There is a section in there about the Kelty Basecamp tent.

Modified Lounge in our Basecamp X

I like most everything about our Basecamp X but considering that it's designed for two people I don't see a need for a dinette where I can seat six. So I templated the flip in boards that convert the dinette to a bed and designed two piece boards to take their place. So now we can have a large lounge area with a small two person dinette.
On our recent 28 day trip we had it set up as a king size bed with a lot of pillows. We added a king size 3" topper making it super comfortable, especially sleeping with the rear door open.

That looks like a fantastic mod and would eliminate the only thing I don’t love about the BC - taking the bed apart every morning to be able to use the dinette Thanks so much for sharing!
