But, for some reason, inconceivable as it is, I never considered the possibility of the Nest being a POS as well, although it apparently is. I should have assumed it would be, and I didn't. I allowed myself to be surprised by the reports above of the Nest's sh*ttery.

I should have known better. I was ignorant of Airstream's latest rolling ball of plastic poop. But, I honestly never considered the Nest to be an Airstream. But, given the fact that they suck off the line, they clearly ARE Airstreams.

Leave fiberglass eggs to the masters...Scamp, Casita, and Oliver.

BaseCamp Issues...

We purchased our BaseCamp in June 2017 and have used it on road trips to Missouri and back and numerous RV’ing adventures up and down the east cost of the USA with few issues that were fixed last Fall by our Airstream dealer; Colonial in Lakewood, NJ. We did notice though that the refrigerator was not staying cool enough (40 degrees or less) to keep food from spoiling. So after reading the various posts on this forum, we have an appointment (Sept. 6th, 2018) to get the factory fix completed. My question though is to those who’ve gotten the work done, how is the refrigerator working now? Is it keeping the temp at 40 degrees or less? It’s intrresting to note that although the issue appears confined to the refrigerator section, no matter whether using propane or shore power, the freezer section stays between 0 and 20 degrees...

Not sure if you have read the Simple Survey thread, but that is the best collection of BC fridge reports IMO:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f404...ne-169937.html

See also these recent threads:

https://www.google.com/search?q=base...=airforums.com

If anyone can fix the situation, it is Colonial, but the poor design of the BC's fridge location etc. may be beyond any dealer's capabilities to remedy completely IMO, especially in hot weather when the front of the trailer is in direct sun.

Good luck,

Peter

Then I discovered a cracked area under the front fiberglass body when wiping off the wax that someone had smeared what looks like bondo (?) near it to patch it but didn't even come close. After that, we looked under the body and found at least 3 more areas that had been repaired. Add to that, there is an area near the top of the rear lighted handle that the fiberglass is eggshell thin and cracked like an egg - causing a hole. Then the fabric on the interior around the 2 windows on either side of the ski goggle window "bubbled up" in several places, so makes me think something leaked behind the panels that we didn't see previously, and moisture caused the fabric to seperate from the panels. We were so excited to get this trailer, our retirement dream, and it has been nothing but a nightmare! Several other issues as well. On vacation and now have our trailer in for service, they tell us it may take a week, we were supposed to be home in 4 days, my husband will be missing work, and the trailer was our place to stay. So where am I supposed to stay with a dog and parrot? NOT a happy camper anymore!

Only took 8 posts to hijack this thread! Might be a new record. Why do people feel the need to do this? Attention?

Hijack?

Being new to Airstream Forum, not sure what is meant by hijack. If I am understanding you correctly, people are not allowed to compare issues between different Airstream models in these forums? No, I am definitely not an attention seeker! The Basecamp and Nest are new ventures for Airstream, and the reason for posting in this thread was comparing similar issues with both. No reason to be rude.

This thread is about a Basecamp. People come to this thread expecting to read about a Basecamp. Not a Nest. If you want to complain about the problems with your Nest, feel free to start your own thread about it, and not simply piling on in a thread about a different thing. With 50 posts, you should have at least the basics of forum etiquette now, and hijacking a thread is one of those things you should know about. It's you that's being rude, not the person calling you out on it.

Beboplu, I for one, don’t think it was inappropriate for you to post your nest issues in this thread. You titled your post “Nest Issues” if a reader was only looking for basecamp issues it was very easy to skip your post. All this talk of forum etiquette. It’s a forum.. I’m also glad AS stepped up and remedied the situation.

Agree. This entire subforum is called Basecamp. There is a subforum for Nest owners.
