The Basecamp is Airstream's smallest and most affordable camping trailer. And the company just announced we're getting a new version of it. Airstream partnered with REI on the REI Co-op Special Edition Basecamp Travel Trailer. REI Co-op is REI's outdoor gear brand.

The Airstream Basecamp is a 16-foot travel trailer with a convertible dinette and lounge that converts into a 76" x 76" bed space that sleeps two. The REI Co-op Special Edition offers several improvements over the standard model.

Airstream's REI Co-op Special Edition Basecamp emphasizes sustainability.

Fabrics and laminates are made from post-consumer recycled materials. The cutting board/sink cover is made from recycled paper. Airstream also uses lightweight, sustainably grown wood for cabinetry.

The REI Co-Op Special Edition Basecamp has upgrades for going off-the-grid.

The trailer has a recirculating water heater and a UV-LED and pre-filter water purification system. The REI Co-Op version gets an exclusive solar power upgrade with 360 watts of flexible rooftop solar panels and a 200 Ah battery storage system. You can add an optional composting toilet.
