REI Co-op x Airstream Special Edition Basecamp Travel Trailer

REI Co-op and Airstream have partnered to design a special edition built on the Airstream Basecamp model, introducing a wide range of sustainability attributes to the travel trailer.

Known for its iconic silver bullet travel trailers, Airstream chose the Basecamp 16 as the foundation for the special edition model with a keen focus on materials, aerodynamics, towability, and intentional features to enhance sustainability attributes. The REI Co-op Special Edition Basecamp Travel Trailer features more environmentally friendly design choices aimed at reducing impact, such as fabrics and laminates made from post-consumer recycled materials, a cutting board sink cover made from recycled paper, and cabinetry crafted from lightweight and sustainably grown wood. Additional sustainability features that also enable a better off-grid camping experience include a recirculating water heater, an optional composting toilet, an advanced UV-LED and pre-filter water purification system, and an exclusive solar upgrade that includes 360 watts of flexible rooftop solar panels and a 200Ah battery bank for on-the-go sustainable power.

The 16-foot travel trailer has a spacious interior with a convertible dinette and lounge that transitions to a 76-inch x 76-inch bed space that can comfortably sleep two adults. The design is complete with exposed birch-ply cabinetry, durable stain-resistant upholstery, and rugged raised coin flooring that provides a textured, slip-resistant surface. This special edition trailer is also outfitted with a 25-piece REI Co-op product kit that includes REI Co-op and partner products, like the REI Co-op Camp Flexlite Dreamer Chair, REI Co-op Campwell Picnic Table Cover, and Bench Covers. REI Co-op x Airstream Special Edition Basecamp Travel Trailer pricing starts at $52,900.




Through enhanced features like the 3” lift kit, off-road tires with stylized aluminum wheels, stainless steel stone guards, and front window solar protection, travelers are able to bring the comforts of home on rugged roads.

Rinse off while saving water with the recirculating water heater, stay cool with the optional air conditioner, and keep toasty with the onboard furnace when the temperature drops near freezing. All of the systems are working to provide the creature comforts of home — no matter where you’re at.

Beautiful and Functional GalleyBeautiful and Functional Galley

The Basecamp 16 floor plan places the kitchen at the front of the travel trailer, providing a panoramic view out the front windows. A multi-layered green slate countertop spans the front with exposed birch plywood, storage, optional microwave, and electric refrigerator below. A 2 burner cooktop, stainless steel sink with a graphite black faucet, and pop-up charging ports provide the perfect place to prepare a meal. The Epicurean sink cover is made of recycled paper, provides a flat surface to cover the bowl sink, and doubles as a chopping board. An OXO kitchen utensil set is included as part of the REI Co-op kit, making meal prep and clean-up even easier with a knife, squeegee, brush, cutting board, and more.

Versatile Rear Living SpaceVersatile Rear Living Space

Two benches and a seat that spans the inside of the rear hatch door make room for five people to lounge, eat, and hang out – as perfect for camping with friends as it is for tailgating. And when you’re ready to get some rest, the benches become a bed for two that covers the whole back of the travel trailer. Or, if you want some sleeping space but also need room to get ready, you can convert one bench into a bed and leave the other as seating space.

The REI Co-op KitThe REI Co-op Kit

Outfitted with a 25-piece REI Co-op product kit, you can be sure that you’re always ready for an adventure. The kit includes REI Co-op brand and partner products, like two Flexlite Camp Dreamer Chairs, Campwell picnic table and bench covers, kitchen utensils from OXO, towels, mugs, and a rechargeable lantern, various sizes of Pack-Away Cubes, a Camp Roll Table, and many, many more items. Best of all, the REI Co-op Kit fits perfectly inside the Basecamp and has dedicated storage as part of the design.
