Basecamp is full of thoughtful, efficient RV features that help you fuel up for the day, then clean up and sack out when it’s all said and done. From the on-board restroom to the convertible living space that forms a relaxing bed, it’s all right there with you, along for the ride. Charge your phone, wake up and make coffee, and then hit the trails again.
The Basecamp Travel Trailer was made for those who want to see the world. Built for adventure, it’s a small camping trailer that’s tough enough to go anywhere your wanderlust takes you, and comfortable enough to help you really enjoy the time you spend there. Head out to snowboard after the first fresh powder. Spend a week mountain biking deep in the forest. Pack up and go anywhere you please, with nothing holding you back.

Made to Partner With Your SUV
Basecamp’s compact, lightweight design opens up all sorts of possibilities. It’s easily towable with a variety of mid-size SUVs, which means you don’t have to make any big changes before you head out for a life-changing adventure. Plus, the aggressive departure angle and large wheels help you tackle more roads with confidence, and side skirts and wheel flares help prevent damage from gravel and debris.
Ready for even more adventure? Tackle rough roads and cold-weather driving with confidence with the Basecamp X-packages which includes premium features that were designed to enhance your travel experience.
Plenty of Room For All Types of Gear
From kayaks to bicycles to fishing gear and more, Basecamp’s design provides plenty of room to load and unload large gear through the 26” x 46” rear hatch. Inside, you have 126” of available cargo depth from the hatch to the galley cabinets without any obstructions in your way.
Enhanced Features for Bigger Adventures
If your adventures take you even farther off the beaten path, the Basecamp X-Package adds more rugged features to make you ready for just about anything you find along the way. The package includes Goodyear® Wrangler® tires and black shadow wheels, plus a 3″ lift kit and a raised hitch jack foot pad for even more road clearance. Stainless steel rock guards and a solar window guard also keep the trailer looking good, even if you put it through the wringer.
