Airstream Base Camp


Airstream has partnered with Nissan Design America to produce the BaseCamp, a trailer for the ringtone and iPod generation

This stylish trailer, designed to be both low cost and flexible is also envisioned as a travel vehicle that's a springboard for outdoor adventures rather than a living room on wheels.

The BaseCamp pays homage to Airstream’s past, taking styling and content cues from the original “Torpedo” concept developed in the 1930’s. The attached tent extension, engineered by outdoor products giant Kelty, provides a lightweight way to double the available living space. Coming in around 2,000 lb and ultra-lightweigt, the Airstream BaseCamp can be towed by most conventional passanger cars.

The BaseCamp comes equiped with aggressive styled 20” wheels, wrap-around windows, low profile stance, and Airstream’s trademark aluminum skin. All these features give BaseCamp a look like nothing else on the street.

Release date is set for July and MSRP is expected to remain under $20,000. Plan your get-away now.
