Time To Downsize
camping options available to Americans in the past led us into the
“bigger is better” stage of weekend and vacation vehicles. We want to
cook our own food, relax, watch the sunsets, and retire for the night on
a comfortable bed. With the rising cost of campground fees and the
inability to find a space during the summertime and on holidays, it is
time to downsize.
Whole New World Awaits . . .
Airstream has done it again.
Under 3,000 pounds and designed with big tires for rolling over uneven
terrain, this little beauty can go anywhere your SUV can.
Add side and patio tents to expand
the living space, pull out the built-in awning, and relax or hit the
lake for a swim. The interior space is designed for rugged wear but
contains a full size bed for two.
The Basecamp is large enough to
fit 2 people sleeping and 5 people lounging. The interior width is 6’
4.5” and the height measures in at 6’ 3.5”. The camper weighs 2,585 lbs.
with a maximum trailer capacity of 3,500 lbs. This leaves 915 lbs. of
weight for carrying personal belongings, food and water. It has a
22-gallon fresh water tank and a 29-gallon gray/black combo tank.
Airstream does it again! Another
classic design, this time for the younger, active generation. Take off
for the weekend in style.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.
~ John Keats, English Romantic poet (1795-1821)
Motorcycle or Compact Car Camper
Here’s another motorcycle or compact car camper from Bunkhouse Camper Trailers.
It’s called the LX Model and weighs in at 350 lbs, plenty light enough
for just about any tow vehicle, including a mini van, sport utility
vehicle, or small sedan. Of course a larger truck would work well, too.
starting price for this fiberglass camper is $4,999, which includes the
trailer itself, attached tent, tongue stand, king size mattress, awning
poles, and a black travel cover with chair pouch, plus a lot more that
we didn’t list.
