Airstream’s Basecamp 16X is 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.Basecamp is both light and aerodynamic — which helps increase fuel efficiency.The kitchen has a two-burner gas stove, sink, microwave, refrigerator, and storage space. While you're cooking, the panoramic front windows let you take in the world around you.Two benches and a seat span the inside of the rear to make room for five people (or more) to lounge, eat, and hang out. And when you’re ready to get some rest, the benches become a bed for two adults and one or two small children. You can also use half the benches for a bed for one that gives you room to get ready.Basecamp offers multiple comfort features -- when you’re setting up camp somewhere hot, the trailer's air conditioning will keep you cool. In cold locales, the onboard furnace and hot water heater systems will warm things up. For recharging after a day of adventuring, Basecamp has a wet bath with flush toilet and shower.Basecamp can hold an additional 850 lbs of weight added in storage, so using the back hatch you can load bikes, kayaks, paddleboards, skis, etc. directly into the trailer for travel.What's included* Orientation Walkthrough and Brake Controller Calibration / Check (allow 60 minutes); additional info in Rules of the Road.

Had a wonderful time with “Binks” in Zion. Dan and Angela did a great job making sure we knew how the Basecamp worked and that we were comfortable before leaving for our trip. Communication was clear and quick. I would highly recommend folks renting this camper from Dan and Angela. We will definitely be renting again!!!

Dan & Angela were amazing throughout our whole trip. From booking the Airstream, to the walkthrough and the return everything was a breeze. Dan gave us detailed instructions on how to operate the Airstream, helped us hook it up to our 4Runner and we’re very responsive for any questions we had. We’d definitely rent again and recommend them for anyone looking to get away with a small camper. We took it to Zion, our first time going. And it did great on highway as well as maneuvering the campground.

Dan and Angela were wonderful. They were very responsive with the communication throughout the entire experience. They took their time to show everything and gave detailed instructions before departure. Because of this, even though I was a newbie, I felt confident towing the trailer. Binx (the name of their Basecamp) was everything I had hoped for. The trailer is in excellent condition and well-cared for without any mechanical problems.
We had a wonderful time boondocking outside the Grand Canyon North Rim and also visited the Mt. Charleston area upon Dan's recommendation.
Without hesitation, I will rent from them again.
