Famed travel trailer company Airstream just debuted its latest model, the Basecamp 20 and we literally cannot stop lusting after it. We’ve got all the details here on this modern, sleek and sure-to-be-timeless new travel trailer.
In early 2019 Airstream introduced a new travel trailer dubbed the Basecamp 16. This trailer was 16 feet in length, designed to be towed behind a small SUV and slept two people. Airstream’s next incarnation in the now popular Basecamp family is the Basecamp 20 (and 20x) – a 20 foot model that sleeps 4 people and still can be pulled by a small or mid sized SUV.
And we are absolutely in love with this already.
Airstream Basecamp 20 debuts
The overarching theme with the new Basecamp 20 is more. More room. More space. More storage. More features. More sleeping, etc.
And, while the price is a bit higher ($45,900 vs. $38,500) the trailer is still designed to be towed by a smaller sized SUV – a key element for the demographic it targets.
Before we get into some of the key details, here’s an official video from Airstream highlighting this cool new trailer.
Here’s a few more key details highlights.
Airstream Basecamp 20 key features
In our opinion, the coolest feature of any Airstream offering is the sleek, metallic streamlined look their trailers all feature. The Basecamp 20 continues this tradition with a familiar metallic sheen to exterior of the trailer. What makes the Basecamp offering especially unique is the curved window wall at the front of the trailer which offers inhabitants a majestic view of their destination. This feature, like much of the Basecamp 20 model is featured “more” than the smaller 16 foot model. There’s really no other way to describe the Basecamp other than it just looks cool!
The 20 foot model includes upgrades on several elements to the Basecamp line including more plugs, more space, more sleeping space (4 people), larger water tanks and so on.
Here’s a few key highlights:
- Bathroom – included
- Kitchenette – included
- Lounge Area that turns into a bed – included
- Air Conditioner & Heater – included
- Single Axle
- 20 feet in length
- Maximum Trailer Capacity: 4500 lbs
