I haven't noticed anything like this but we are taking it out again tomorrow. I will add this to my list of things to inspect. Thanks! Just received a short queen size "futon like" bed that rolls up and ties. They had it in all different colors. I am hoping this is going to be our best bet for sleeping. I will take some pics let y'all know
Must say this basecamp is so great for getting out of the city if only for a weekend or few days. So far no regrets it's just what we needed.

I love what you did with the bed, I am 5"4, my cattle dog weighs in at 55. I tormented my self with the hitch issue, then decided to go with my dealer on the Ox and sway. I brought her ( Luna Sea) home myself, and took her in for a brake controller adjustment yesterday. It was a super positive experience. Today I will unhitch and set her up, practice practice. First trip of any distance (Florida) around March 26 th.

We have the BC back in the driveway, ready for another trip after getting the leaky place behind the refrigerator fixed. We got these Thai mats to try out for making the bed more comfortable...hopefully will give it a try next weekend. Has anyone used these before? They seem rather firm, so not too sure. They are attractive though! Click image for larger version

Took delivery of our BC "Dot" late January. Her first trip was a week ago, we had a great time. Towing was easy and stable, yet will be adding sway control to the trailer and air leveling to our tow vehicle. Click image for larger version

HI All! It is with great excitement that I write my first post on Airforums as an expecting owner of a new basecamp! We have been researching airstream and other TT for a couple of years and when the basecamp was announced in Sept we knew we had found the one. In particular, we feel that this unit will still allow us to feel like we are camping but save us from trekking out for midnight nature calls! We ordered it with the solar panels and tents - as we are a family of four - but did not order the A/C or microwave. We plan on camping mostly at state parks and other campgrounds where hookups will be limited. We have been living vicariously thru others who have posted their experiences with the basecamp and hope we can share as much helpful insight and knowledge as well. We have been told that the dealer should be getting it by the middle of March - can't wait!

Just some observations from a newbie who took delivery yesterday: tows well behind my Jeep Wrangler -- made the Jeep more stable and less darty actually, lol. Going to have to read up about all the disconnects and bypasses, especially concerning the Truma system which seems to be a great unit. Do not think you can manhandle the Basecamp by hand to move or park it in tight spaces -- might sound obvious, but you can't. Probably will need a trailer valet XL dolley which didn't work for me on thawing grass. It might have though with another person helping to push.

You are going to need a septic hose to dump with -- Basecamp doesn't come with one. I bought a "Dominator" brand one which extends accordion-style to 15 feet, but shrinks up to 57 inches so it should fit in storage tube underneath the unit. A level for fore/aft, and side to side, as well as leveling blocks. And septic granules -- seem less messy than liquids and less wasteful than packets.

Too psyched! Moved to Colorado 7 months ago with my family. A lifelong dream come true. John Denver wasn't lying about Colorado and The Rocky Mountains! Majestic everyday. Different everyday. Awaiting delivery of 2017 Basecamp in April. We're gonna put some miles on that Airstream.
