Basecamp has launched India’s first ever Caravans range in India on 10th October 2012 in New Delhi. The debutant lineup has two different models – HYMER Sporting Style 465 and Dethleffs Newline 410tk. Basecamp has collaborated with Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) as their strategic partner. The philosophy behind this partnership is to facilitate parking and other travel utilities to caravan owners on the highways whilst travelling pan India.
Basecamp is also working with state tourism development board to facilitate caravan parking facilities and also promote tourism using the Caravans in India. There maybe some upcoming Public-Private Partnership projects in the Caravan tourism in India in coming years. The prices of the two Caravans are – HYMER Sporting 465 is priced at Rs. 22 lakh + taxes and Dethleffs New Line 410TK is priced at Rs. 16 lakh + taxes.
Basecamp hopes to sell about 600 units in the first year and the target group of the customers does not only include tourists, but also a variety of other buyers like NGOs who might use it as mobile health vans, actors using it as their vanity vehicle, construction companies may use it for their site staff and engineers etc. So there are numerous other-than-tourism applications as well which makes Basecamp officials quite optimistic about its good sales performance in India in the times to come.
The Caravans will be delivered in 6 to 8 weeks time after the customers place an order for it. The Caravan will be attached to the pulling vehicle with special clamp and it will be electrically connected with the vehicle and use the brake light inputs and turn indicators and also the braking inputs from the vehicle pulling it.
The interiors are quite comfortable with features like Beds, dining areas, toilet and bathroom, kitchen, lots of storage space and cabinets, Windows, etc. giving the occupants a quite comfortable an home like experience when they are on a vacation or any outdoor trip or travel.
