Airstream Basecamp's bigger brother gets the EZ upgrade.
The long awaited #EZUtilityBumper has now been released for the bigger version of the Airstream Basecamp : the 20. Sporting the same stylish look and sturdy design, the bumper has now been modified to fit the bigger radius of the larger camper. Providing you with a hitch receiver and tie-down points the bumper allows you to attach most of hitch accessories (bike carriers and cargo carriers) available on the market today, freeing up desirable living space inside the camper.
What to expect during installation.
We always try to make our gear as simple to install and operate as possible. The idea is to make it EZier for all parties involved.
The bumper consists of only 3 parts that are easy to assemble. Although when it comes to installing it on your Basecamp 20 there are some extra steps needed to be taken into account making this installation slightly more involved than that of the Basecamp 16. Here's the main difference:
The main difference of the Basecamp 20 design is the addition of the belly pan covering access to the frame in the back.
This belly pan will have to be removed by drilling out several rivets holding it in place. The jacks will also have to be removed (three bolts on each side). The rest of the installation follows the same steps as that for the Basecamp 16. It's important to note that the belly pan cover will have to be reinstalled (riveted) after bumper installation is completed. The jacks bolt back on as well.
These extra steps make this installation more involved than that of the Basecamp 16, but offer the same benefits. If you're still on the fence about upgrading your Basecamp 20 we will provide you with all the information we can. We will soon be releasing the install video for this camper (you can watch the Basecamp 16 installation video here). This one will require a couple of extra tools and time - but it's nothing you can't handle. We can also help you install your bumper if you happen to be driving through Indianapolis, Indiana. Send us a message of give us a call anytime.
