PahaQue Design for Airstream Basecamp

PahaQue Custom has extensive experience designing, producing, and selling high quality  side tents, awnings, visors, and accessories  for T@B and T@G trailers, A-liner, R Pod, Little Guy, and more.    So when the folks at Airstream needed help designing and producing tents for the new Airstream Basecamp, they knew exactly where to turn. 3-Aistream04-Back-Tent-0003

PahaQue Custom worked closely with Airstream beginning in 2015, before the first Airstream Basecamp rolled off the factory floor.  Work even started before a prototype was available, so the design crew at PahaQue actually used CAD files from AirStream  to build a full scale model of the Basecamp  roof out of plywood. This allowed PahaQue to achieve  almost perfect fit before the  first prototype arrived, at which point final design changes and fit modifications were easy to make.

The Basecamp tent utilizes a unique attachment that makes it easy to set up and take down, while also keeping out the harshest elements.  But the Basecamp tents are not just functional, they were designed to look great as well.  Airstream campers  have an iconic look, and it was important to maintain that  visual aesthetic.  “We’re pretty proud that we were able to design tents that complimented the cool geometry of the trailer itself.” said Jeff Basford, President of PahaQue.   The Basecamp side and rear tents add a total of 120 square feet to camper, making the Basecamp even more versatile and useful.


So if you love PahaQue Custom and you love Airstream, you are in luck.   You can get these tents along with your Airstream Basecamp trailer at any Airstream dealer, read more about the tents on the Basecamp on Airstream’s website here.
