Thor does/did own T@B or the larger Tada. Why not incorporate the interior and functions of it into the looks of the Basecamp. It would have heat, ac, toilet and shower,plus the frig and stove. Or one could take the Bambi 16 and use the looks of the Basecamp.

Does someone here know about the process?

"Not aluminum, Unmistakably AIRSTREAM"


Couldn't they use the shell of an airstream to make the mold, for a Casita style trailer.

My guess: Steel frame, wood floor, molded plastic exterior and interior sandwich with steel tube between layers for the structure. Rivet heads as part of the exterior look, painted silver. Interior cabinets molded and entire system glued together.

I've owned a T@B and an Avion. Both far superior in QC than an Airstream.

The other side of that equation is that Airstream is still in production.

Quality costs money. Making something if highest quality involves selling at a quality price and that can sometimes price you out of the mkt.

True but there is a long-term market strategy to perhaps capture young customers and foster brand loyalty and future purchases that would be more lucrative

That is why they have "entry level" luxury cars.

Back to the original posting on this thread.....

Remember the Scout Prototype Airstream rolled out a couple of years ago. I thought it was kind of cool. Maybe they are considering going with this retro style.

My personal opinion is that that is a vintage trailer, but not an airstream.

My opinion is that the curved, silver bullet shape is essential.
