basecamp-exterior_lifestyle-shotThere’s nothing quite like a shiny, jet-age Airstream trailer. Towing one behind your vehicle, or simply parking one in your driveway, says that you appreciate classic, 20th-century, cutting-edge design.

Business Insider reported that the original Airstream — a sleek, shimmering object of rolling art — was introduced in the 1930s. The lineup has grown over the decades, and the smallest trailer, the Sport Series, has now been outdone by the Basecamp Series.

Described by the company as “our most nimble Airstream yet,” the Basecamp is the “very definition of get-up-and-go.”

What Airstream is aiming for here is both the highly adventurous and outdoorsy crowd. These are the folks who want to suit up in head-to-toe Patagonia and head out with friends for a weekend of rock climbing, as well as the hardcore camping enthusiasts who don’t need, or have room for, a full-on Airstream trailer.

The Basecamp, Airstream said in a statement, is ” compact, light, and easy to tow, and the perfect place to land after a day of adventure.”

“We designed Basecamp to rekindle the desire to explore nature and get outdoors,” said CEO Bob Wheeler in a statement.
