Airstream Launches Off-road Ready Basecamp X

Whether they’re vintage models being restored by award-winning architects or just the latest unit off the assembly line, Airstreams are cool. They’re like old Vespa scooters or big Honda Gold Wings — they’re very much their own thing. And, if that thing speaks to you, nothing else will really do. That’s why any new Airstream is a thing to be celebrated, and why we’re celebrating the Airstream Basecamp X here, today.

The Basecamp X starts off with the standard Airstream Basecamp, but adds a 3″ lift kit, stainless steel stone guards, front window protection, and new, blacked out wheels wrapped in Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain tires to improve traction on slippery surfaces. All of that is done in the name of going a little bit further off the beaten path than you could before. That, in case you haven’t read our “About” page, is perfectly in line with our core values here at Gas 2, so– yeah.

The 2,635 lb. Basecamp X includes a camp kitchen, bathroom, 3–cubic-foot refrigerator, 22-gallon freshwater tank, and flexible sleeping accommodations for two. You can check out the floorplan, below, then let us know what you think of Airstream’s little off-roader in the comments at the bottom of the page.
