Floor Plan

The REI Co-op Special Edition Basecamp 16 floor plan includes everything you need to enjoy your trip, all packed into a compact and smart space. Nestled in the front is the galley with a large panoramic window, giving you great views while you cook. The bathroom is also perfectly placed in the middle of the trailer, so you won’t have to sacrifice any of your living space.

In the rear of the trailer is the versatile and ingenious living space. It’s designed to accommodate anything you throw at it, whether you’re relaxing after a long day of exploring or want to lounge, eat, and hang out with friends. With the REI Co-op Special Edition Basecamp 16 floor plan, you’ll have all the creature comforts you need to make the most of your adventure.


If you love cooking and enjoying the great outdoors, then you’ll love the kitchen in the Basecamp 16 floor plan. Located at the front of the travel trailer, it provides a panoramic view out of the front windows, making it the perfect place to start your day.

The kitchen itself is equipped with everything you need to prepare a delicious meal, including a 2 burner cooktop and stainless steel sink with a graphite black faucet. It features a multi-layered green slate countertop that spans the front, with exposed birch plywood and plenty of storage space below. There’s also an optional microwave and electric refrigerator.

One of the most unique features is the Water Filtration System. This innovative system is designed to reduce bacteria and microorganisms in your potable water, ensuring that it’s safe to drink. It’s connected to a 21 gallon onboard tank, so you’ll have plenty of water to last you throughout your trip. But it’s not just about the water itself – it’s also about how you drink it. That’s why the REI Co-op Special Edition Basecamp 16X includes a set of REI Co-op cups, so you can enjoy your water without relying on single-use plastics.

Wet Bath

This Wet Bath area houses both the shower and the toilet (optional composting toilet available), so you won’t have to sacrifice any of your living space. One of the standout features of the bathroom is the shower head passthrough, which allows you to easily access the shower from outside the trailer. Overall, the bathroom in the REI Co-op Special Edition Basecamp has everything you need to stay clean and refreshed on your adventures.

Rear Living Space

This rear living space is perfect for lounging, eating, and hanging out that can accommodate up to five people. When it’s time to get some rest for the night, the rear benches transform into a comfortable sleeping space that covers the whole back of the trailer, providing plenty of room for two people to sleep. Alternatively, if you need a little more flexibility, you can convert one bench into a bed and leave the other as seating space. Regardless of how you choose to use it, the rear hatch door area is a versatile and comfortable space that’s perfect for getting a good night’s sleep on the go.
