New Basecamp Owner's Shopping List


As relatively new owners of an Airstream Basecamp, we've been doing a lot of shopping to outfit our Basecamp with all of the tools, accessories, and critical components needed to make the most of our adventure. Today I am sharing with you a copy of our shopping list that we have used to help outfit our trailer.

Links are to the products we own and are recommended by Silver Traverse. 

Leave a comment at the bottom and let me know what you use that should be on this list!

Future Purchases?

We haven't invested in these items just yet, but are looking to do so in the future

  • Dump tote cart for emptying our tanks
  • Air compressor for filling tires

Where to Buy?

We purchased our accessories from a variety of places, and we would recommend the same to you. Some RV-specific items were purchased from Camping World, but their selection was more limited. has great selection and 2 day shipping for Prime members. REI sells a great array of camping supplies, and their return policy is fantastic. Finally, we used stores like IKEA to help stock the kitchen and living spaces with inexpensive odds and ends.
