Airstream’s new tough & lightweight Basecamp Trailer

We can’t all afford to buy dedicated a recreation vehicle, let alone to store it. The Airstream Basecamp Trailer is the next best thing. Both small and tough enough to take anywhere, this trailer only requires a mid-size SUV with which to pull it. It’s got the same aluminum panels as Airstream’s full-sized Land Yacht along with panoramic front windows, subtle tones inside that accentuate the view, and room to sit five and sleep two. 

A full kitchen with stove, sink, microwave, and fridge negates the need to eat out three times a day and an on-board bath and restroom means you won’t need to use local gyms for showering. It’s also pre-wired for solar should you opt for renewable power sources, features ventilation and heating, the latter for both the cabin and water, and comes with a Bluetooth Bose SoundLink Color speaker which is more than enough to fill the trailer with booming sound.
