The new Basecamp was one of the most popular choices at the RVX reveal. The mini silver bullet is 16 feet long and is light enough to be towed by most SUVs.

There is enough room for kayaks, bikes, and fishing equipment at this location. There are two benches in the back of the camper that has enough seating for five people.
Hidden storage space can be found underneath the benches that flip up. They can be converted into a comfortable full bed for two when it’s time to sleep.

There is a pass-through port that you can use to rinse gear off outside.

The most popular pick in the Adventurer category was the SylvanSport VAST. The innovative design of the new travel trailer earned it the attention it deserved.

One of Forest River RV’s most rugged campers is called the No Boundaries line.

The freedom of the open road is what it is, it is the wanderlust. The journey is more important than the destination.
Exploring the world is what it’s about. You don’t need a house when you travel because you are at home.
That is life in an RV. The problem is that planning an epic RV journey is somewhat complex. It should be simple, that’s what we believe at Camper Life.
As RVers ourselves, we understand the process and have helped millions of RVers journey with confidence and make their travel dreams come true.
