Rick, have they given you any word when you can expect your first?

Sanders RV in Florida says their demo Basecamp unit is due in mid-October, and that purchased units will be delivered 8-10 weeks from then. Joe

Desert Autoplex in Mesa says they will have a total initial allocation of nine units not including the "Demo". Knowing this dealer, these initial units will have every option and sell at least at list price if not at a premium (known by slang as additional dealer profit).

Not sure on the exact date, but our demo (which will also be our first) should be here next week.

Yup, I was there Saturday, they don't have it in yet, but will be getting it in soon. Can't wait to see it.

Central Coast

Here on the central coast we will also be getting our demo in at the end of the week and we apparently have six coming to each store (we have two locations). I believe they have been ordered with all the options as well, but won't know that for sure til we see them.

Curious to know how you feel about the relative lack of operable/screened windows in both the old and new Basecamps? If one sleeps mainly in a tent, and uses the new BC as a galley and head, a center of operations which can also haul kayaks etc., then it makes sense IMO. I can't imagine sleeping inside on a hot night boondocking for instance.

Our FC20 has good cross-ventilation with the many windows which open wide, hinged on top. The small sliding windows in many Sport models lack the same free air ventilation.

Thanks,

Peter

Do your Basecamp models arrive on a trailer, and if so can it carry multiple units?

Thanks

Really interested in this as our quick trip trailer. Perfect for our mountain bike trips or kayak trips to the mountains. Hell, I might even just use it to stay close to the ski areas during winter. And, I could roll it into the garage which really makes this a win for me. I guess the mini will have to sleep outside. Mount an iPad on the wall, connect it to the speaker and you have all you need.

Local dealer here in Denver quoted me a fully loaded at $40k and will have one hopefully by this upcoming weekend.

Hopefully we will get a Patrick Botticelli walkthrough before the weekend.

Denver, check out other dealers online for price comparisons. We are too familiar with your nearby dealer.

I think I would be very interested in purchasing the new basecamp if I could get it into my garage. Just measured height of my garage door opening and it is 8'. The new basecamp is 8'6.25" high. Do you think if push comes to shove (literally) that I could use dollies and a winch to get the trailer in the garage if (1. Let all the air out of the tires or (2. More difficult to do--take the wheels completely off.

Get a head start from the street and back up. After the first time there will be enough room. Or you could buy a set of tiny wheels to retrofit to lower the whole shebang. Twelve inch maybe?

Easier to remove AC and lower tire pressure?
