Newbie in Massachusetts!

Hi, All,

Nice to meet y'all!

So, I don't have an Airstream, as yet.... I'm hoping to order either a 2023 16x or a 20x Basecamp very soon - probably at Colonial in NJ. Haven't had any opportunity to view one, other than on a YouTube video, unfortunately. I'd like to at least tour one before I drive five hours... They have none in stock at this writing. I'm very excited about the prospect of owning one as my first travel trailer. I've been reading the forums carefully to get an idea of people's experiences from purchase, thru delivery, and usage. Very exciting but also daunting!

As I retire next year, I hope to sell my home, travel cross-country in a move to WA state, seeing the sights along the way over a few months.

If you happen to live anywhere near southeastern MA or within 2-3 hours anyway, is there anyone out there who has time to give a tour of their own Basecamp - year doesn't matter - at your convenience, naturally? I promise not to be a nuisance. Would love to get a personal review of your ownership experience, too. Hope I'm not out of line in asking as a newbie here! If it doesn't happen, that's OK, too! Post your thoughts anyway!

Enjoy your day wherever you be!

Hmmm...when we were down at Colonial in November they had a 20' basecamp in the showroom inside.

Good luck with your search...Patrick at Colonial is definitely the guy to see.

I would suggest keeping all of the trailers in the "23 foot and less" range on the list until you get a chance to spend some time in this or that. A lot of folks are more than a little surprised at just how small some of them are .... What appear to be relatively minor differences in layout can have a *big* impact.

Yes as you increase length and move to different models, the price does to up. Welcome to Airstream . The thing you do not want to do is to buy one that's to small and trade it in a year or two. In normal times, that is not cheap.
