2008 Airstream Basecamp exterior

Airstream say: "Basecamp pays homage to Airstream's past, taking styling cues from Airstream founder Wally Byam's original 1935 Torpedo. Modern-looking and sleek, Basecamp is so light you almost won't know you're towing it. Park and open out the back: a tent option, engineered by outdoor products giant Kelty, gives you sleeping room on the ground to go with the two bunks inside the trailer."  Aistream tell Roaming Times (2008 model) that the base MSRP is $24,095.

The floorplan is shown below and is different!  We like the overall concept very much - all of this in a trailer just 16'2" long.

BrendanmI have a mint condition Basecamp that I am considering selling. It is stored inside and has only been used a handful of times over the years. 3000# axle, 20" factory wheels, tent, optional storage bags, ramps, skylight, red interior trim - it was close to $30k new. Anyone have an idea what the current value would be? Cheers Brendan
