The Basecamp is one of Airstream’s eight travel trailers, which also include the recently refreshed Flying Cloud and International. Despite this variety of towable tiny home options, the Basecamp has risen to become one of Airstream’s most popular trailer model, according to the company.
The 2021 Basecamp builds are an upgrade from the original Basecamp 16 and 16X with its larger size and, consequently, new and more amenities.
These new Basecamp features include a new convertible dinette, more storage space, and independent fresh, grey, and black water tanks, to name a few upgrades. And because the travel trailers are now 20 feet long, weigh 3,400 pounds — although the 20X is 100 pounds heavier — and have a gross vehicle mass of 4,300 pounds, both the Basecamp 20 and 20X can be towed by an SUV or truck.
Besides the differences in base weight, the 20 can be distinguished from the 20X with the latter’s extra off-road-oriented upgrades that make it heavier, taller, and $3,000 more expensive than the $45,900 Basecamp 20 build.
