I bought a new basecamp last week and just brought it home yesterday. I'm a total newbie to Airstream as well as owning any type of trailer. Up until yesterday, with a few exceptions as a kid in my grandparent's trailer, I've only ever tent-camped. Still excited and a bit overwhelmed by the learning curve (damn trailer wants to turn too quick when backing), but I can't wait to take my silver beast out. First trip is an overnight on Sunday at a fairly close RV park. Next trip is two weeks later at a still w/in an hours distance, campground with full hook-up. I'll be honest, I'm just excited to not have to put the tent up and then try and get out of it at 3 am when I need to use the facilities. Oh yeah, and not have to crawl into a sleeping bag on the ground...getting a little too old and creaky for that.
