Off Road BaseCamp

I don't have pictures yet. My BaseCamp is stored in Las Vegas in a rented storage building. I have a motorhome that I keep over there as well, so I travel from So. California to there often. I wanted the BaseCamp to travel out to the National Parks in that area (like Grand Canyon, CanyonLands, Mesa Verde, Arches, Lake Powell, etc.). My motorhome was too large to get into those smaller spots, and more remote areas, it's for a completely different type of travel.

With regard to your question on the off road BaseCamp. It is raised about two more inches for extra clearance, and comes with 15" off road (knobby) tires. They tow fine on pavement, and are well suited for the desert areas I mentioned above, or some of the campgrounds that are off dirt roads. I have the shield for any rocks on the front, and I did get the Kelty tent. The tent is highly over-priced, but when you consider that it is custom to the BaseCamp and therefore limited in quantity that is what you are going to get. If you are out for a couple of days it makes a nice dressing area, bathroom and storage zone so you don't clutter up the BaseCamp living space. I would still opt to sleep in the BaseCamp, and kick my guests out to the tent!

Sorry for the tardy response.

I see the Classic Limited is about twice the size of the Basecamp--more to like, I guess, but way more than I feel I can handle as a newcomer. Now, the 75th Anniversary Bambi is really something, too. I'm sure you saw it. (BTW, Dave Olson Sr. helped me.

Thumbs up Hi and congrats on your basecamp!

My husband just loves the idea of the basecamp! We'd love to see more pics of the inside,too! We'll be watching for more info whenever you post! Okay, here's the perfect tow vehicle - a chrome H2!

This is Michael. You need a 4WD P/U with a PTO out the back that attaches to a differential that drives the BaseCamps' axle. You'd have a 6WD that us Army guys would love. You could climb the Rockies off-road, and sleep like a baby on top!
Congratulations on your new BaseCamp. I am envious. I loved it from the first time I saw it. It makes my imagination run wild.

I am looking to buy a base camp and pull it with a Toyota FJ. Anyone have an opinion if this is a good idea and does anyone have either or both of these for sale? Last question - will my Harley Blackline fit in the Basecamp ok?
