Thanks Bill. One question, I don't quite understand the last picture. Could you elaborate? This is great info, I don't know how I was going to accomplish this. I thought at first that I would just unpack all the old tents and go from there, but his is going to be much easier.

The two poles with the plastic balls on the end are the same size and run parallel to the sides of the Basecamp when the Kelty is up and on the trailer. The other three are installed perpendicular to those two poles with the longest being closest to the trailer and the shortest being nearest the end of the tent. The shortest of these three poles has a shorter end section than the others. All the other poles seem to be made up of standardized lengths of stock pole material. Except that one short perpendicular pole which has a 11.5 inch end piece.

If someone is building the poles for you to a specific length it may not matter how the poles are sliced.

we sold our FC19 and truck, now thinking of getting a base camp to camp and haul my R1200 GS ADV, what do you tow behind. We have a Toyota FJ cruiser now and it can tow 5K, would have to get the RV wiring plug installed

BTW - I'm doing a 4 corners ride in July 2015

We tow behind a Toyota Highlander Hybrid. It is barely enough and I certainly wouldn't get anything larger to tow behind the Highlander. The 1200 GSA will fit in the BaseCamp but it will be tight. I use a Condor chock to secure the front wheel. The chock is attached to the BaseCamp floor with a mounting kit but we had to install it up into the pantry well so the rear wheel would clear to back ramp. That back ramp/steps is not designed to be load bearing.

Here are a couple of photos that I hope help.

This one shows the mount installed on the Basecamp floor. The Condor chock attaches to this mount using a screw pin. It is rock solid once it is locked down.


This is the only shot I have of the Condor chock (It's in the lower left of the photo). After arriving at the campground and unloading the bike I unlock the chock and sit it outside the BaseCamp so we can unfold everything. Notice the ends of the lateral member of the chock have been ground down. We did this so it would fit up into the pantry far enough for the rear wheel to clear the ramp/steps.



If the FJ is rated to 5K it should do fine.
