*** Our new Basecamp is here early. Get more for less! Buy our 2018 BC direct from us this week to get tents and teak floormat included. The dealer will not include these in the resale. ***
This Basecamp was only used twice by the original owners. Second trip was to Airstream in Ohio for all recall and warranty work including shower door fix. They liquidated all of their recreational items to buy a beach house. We are the second owners and after our spring shakedown each season we take her in to our local dealer for any necessary repairs and leak sealing. She is lightly used and well loved. Full solar, microwave, Dometic fridge, Truma system, sun visor package, AC/Heat, propane stove, upgraded shower head – all in working condition when used last fall. It doesn’t tend to get a long hard freeze here in East Tennessee, but we soft-winterize as an added precaution. We purchased rear and side tents and a custom teak floor mat for the bathroom aftermarket. The tents are from came discolored from the manufacturer, but are in excellent working condition and we added extra waterproofing to them. The tents are not completely weatherproof but they are a game changer. The side and rear tents combined add 120 square feet of living space to your Basecamp! We use the side tent as a living room / dining room and the rear tent as a dog bedroom for our 3 dogs. The dogs have spent very little time inside the Basecamp. We boondock most of the time and use regular hookup sites or just plug in to shore power the rest of the time. The ONLY reason we are selling is to upsize to a 2022 20′ Basecamp to accommodate 2 of us, 3 dogs, my full time remote work, and occasional guests. We love the ease of this model, camping with or without any of the tents attached, and sleeping with the back door open no matter how chilly the night. It’s a cozy little nest with a view of everything around you. We absolutely love it!

Consider these tips in order to send or receive payment safely.
Know the vehicle’s market value
Be very suspicious of any vehicle priced significantly below market value. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Confirm contact information
Verify the seller’s physical address and phone number BEFORE SENDING PAYMENT. Zip codes, area codes and addresses should match up.
Use email wisely
Do not send personal or financial information (such as your social security number, credit card number or checking account number) to a seller via email. Email communications are not secure.
Do not use money transfer services, such as Western Union to pay for online purchases
Even Western Union recommends against using their service or similar services to pay for online purchases. Be cautious about any seller who will only accept a money transfer.
If using an escrow service for payment, make sure it is a reputable, valid escrow service
Some buyers, purchasing outside their local area, may consider using an escrow service. If so, make sure it is a legitimate service. Go directly to the website of the escrow service. Do NOT go to an escrow service through a link in the seller’s e-mail or use a service based on a referral from the seller. Check the web address to make sure you are at the valid website.
Get a detailed receipt
Ask the seller for a receipt that states whether the Airstream is being sold with a warranty or “as is.”
Get title to the vehicle
Make sure you know what’s required in your state to transfer title to the vehicle you’re buying.
Confirm contact information
Be wary of buyers willing to purchase your item sight-unseen, especially buyers located overseas. Always verify the buyer’s street address and valid phone number.
Verify that a certified check is genuine
Verify authenticity with the issuing bank prior to depositing a certified check. Make sure the account contains sufficient funds and the issuing bank guarantees payment on the check. Once deposited in your account, it may take a week or more for the check to clear. Acceptance by your bank does not guarantee the check is valid and funds are available. A cashier’s check can take 30 days or more to clear.
Secure payment first
Do not transfer the title until you have payment in hand at the agreed upon price (and you have verified that the payment is valid.
Beware of overpayment or other complicated payment schemes
Do not agree to any plan where the buyer asks to send a check for more than the sale price and requests that the seller refund the difference. Be suspicious of any buyer who proposes making payment through a friend or agent of the buyer.
