It does seem quite nice.

Airstream Basecamp in the news:

Airstream compacts its sleek aluminum construction into Basecamp trailer (again)

Thanks for the link. The photo in the middle of the article shows the sewer dump quite clearly:

http://newatlas.com/airstream-baseca...=true#picture5

and it sure looks low . . .

From the article:
________________________________________________

Airstream's CEO and president Bob Wheeler puts it like this:

"All you need to do is head out and decide whether to go right or left at the end of your driveway."
________________________________________________


Just make sure you don't turn too sharp to the left as you leave the driveway, especially if the curbing at the street is fairly high.

But picture, I think 11, clearly shows a protective cover with 2 latches. It looks like it would be latched closed for travel.

Maybe, but then why show side views with it on the road with that bulky assortment hanging down? Also, where is the storage tube in the "clean" side view?

That clean side view is either a progress print of an incomplete Basecamp, or maybe a stripped down basic version without options. Let's look at the Specs page and see what is Standard and what is Optional.

Edit -- the features page says the China Toilet is standard FWIW.

https://www.airstream.com/travel-tra...camp/features/

Hopefully the dealers can chime in here.

PS2 -- SeaLevel, the hatch with two clasps ["protective cover"] is ALSO visible in the top photo which shows the bulky drain assembly hanging way down, so guessing the electrical shore power cord is inside that hatch? TBD.

PS3 -- In the clean side shot, there is no hint of the black/grey holding tank which is visible in many of the other shots from both sides IMO. I am increasingly thinking this side shot from the street side was taken during the design and prototype phase of this project, and may not be a final version. IMO

Dealers -- Please clarify the sewer drain questions being discussed, when you can. Photos with a tape measure showing ground clearance would be helpful. Does the entire bulky assemblage pivot up into the body, to be hidden behind that small door? Or is the "clean"'side photo of an incomplete trailer, a "progress print" if you will?

Please also detail the waste water holding tank location, and it's apparent absence from the "clean" side shot in which there is no sewer dump assembly hanging down in front of the street side tire.

Thanks,

Peter

It's probably a camera angle...

If it has a cassette toilet there would not be a normal black tank, only a tank probably serviced through outside.

The pictures from the west dealer showed a cassette toilet, maybe a regular one is an option. I'd go with the cassette if it helped ground clearance.

Is this the video where he mentions a porcelain toilet and tanks? If so, why did the pictures from the dealer out west show a cassette toilet?

The video Michael posted works on my iPad. Patrick says it will be posted on their YouTube site as soon as possible.

Had a canned response from the local dealer from entering the information to download the brochure.

Will be interesting to see how long these initial units sit on the dealer lots.
