You may never have heard of First Descents, but that’s not because they aren’t worthy of notice. They’re a charity that provides outdoor adventure programs around the country for young adults who have been affected by cancer or other serious medical ailments. They also recently launched a Hero Recharge initiative, offering free outdoor programs for COVID-19 first responders.

So, if you’re interested in helping First Descents out (and maybe plotting your future outdoor adventure), you can enter this giveaway to win an Airstream Caravel Trailer and a Ram 1500 pickup to tow it with.

The 2020 Airstream Caravel is one of the company’s newer mid-size trailers, one that offers substantially more than the tiny Airstream Nest but is still more of a weekend model than a full-on retirement rig like the Airstream Classic. The Caravel sleeps four and comes equipped with a memory foam mattress, solar panels, premium kitchen appliances, Quietstream climate control and pet-friendly Ultraleather seating.

But it wouldn’t make sense to give you a trailer without something to tow it. So you get perhaps the best full-size pickup for the job, a 2020 Ram 1500 4×4 with the diesel engine. The 3.0-liter engine puts out 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque; plus, it’s relatively fuel-efficient, with an EPA rating for 29 mpg on the highway (though not when towing an Airstream).

The giveaway covers related taxes, shipping, and registration costs. It also includes $20,000 cash, which you could use for additional gear — or, perhaps, donate back to First Descents or another worthy cause. The choice is yours.
