Interesting, and thanks for posting. The comparisons to the original Basecamp are accurate except for saying the new one weighs 200 pounds less -- it actually weighs about 700 pounds more.

Got my first live look at two Basecamps today. Just my opinion but I was not impressed. Seems very unfinished and actually sort of flimsy in construction and materials. For $37k I expected and hoped for more. For about the same money one can get a 16 Bambi, A much more ergonomic and developed trailer. I can see where the Basecamp might appeal to a certain buyer demographic. Also can picture Interstate owners that want a basic extra bedroom with minimum amenities towing one down the road.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."
