Mike, the Basecamp was obviously modeled on the early Byam Torpedo design.

Dr Holmans 1935 Torpedo was built from plans and as he says, finished in 1937

Chuck and Toni Miltenberger found and restored a Masonite sided 1936 Silvercloud(#199). It took part in VACs 25th Anniversary events leading up to the 2018 Salem international

You can find a nice write up on it in Hemmings Daily News, Nov 15, 2018 and in Flytecamp YouTube (EP7) about the Bend Classic Vintage Airstream Clubs 25th.

Also history on the earliest known AS kin, a 1946 16’ Model 1 Curtis Wright (#429)

I'm currently running a 1948 Trailwind (#5003) around the country. I put in a new interior in the style of Thomas Molesworth. It sports an Italian cooktop, micro/macrowave oven, shower/head, queen bed and settee all in 19'. The air conditioner cover was patterned off the airstream to match. Four murals of national parks were painted in dioramic fashion on the interior: https://www.dougleen.com/ontheroad/2...ce-and-beyond/

The 1935 Torpedo isn't technically on the road anymore, it was bought by: the Jack Sisemore Traveland RV Museum - http://www.rvmuseum.net/
