    Rear door is what makes the Basecamp work as no interior space is lost as it is with side door. It is the only way to fit so much in such a small space. 2 is best as 3, 4, & 6 beds are shorter than the average male.

  2. Marty Casino says:

    This is really designed for people who want to get out and about. Mountain biking, surfing etc. so it’s more about it being a comfortable base rather than a home away from home. Some people just simply don’t want a awning and just want to get up and go and this is perfect. I do see what your saying and at this price you would really want the option to step into an awning if you wanted one and not have to go out then unzip the awning to get into it. I hope they are not going to do a rear awning as most sites just aren’t set up for it.

    Well, we have a small original basecamp so we can see how it works and we like it. However, the awning would be on the back again making it a very long rig when on site. Fitting the awning is a pain due to it being so high to get the slide strip into the slot above the door – so much so we sold ours. The van however is great as I’m sure the 6 will be. As for the bunk beds, I’m a small adult and weigh 62kg. 77kg is 12 stone so it will take bigger kids than I. Oh, and make sure it has an Alko hitch as supplied, it’s much more stable with than without.

    The elephant in the room is the back door.
    Itches are designed for side doors and side awnings. This van will just not work?
