I agree. I would love to see it when the inside gets done. Wonder if they will make bigger one, that one looks kinda small but then again I'm loving my 30'

I have always owned fiberglass trailers and I will say they may still be my favorite. If airstream ever made a fiberglass 25fb I would probably trade mine in.

Of course if Oliver ever made a wider body with separate bedroom that would be my dream trailer.

Looks a lot better than the Basecamp. That one looks like a small horse trailer to me. I fear that Airstream will over price the Nest driving some potential buyers to Oliver.

I will not judge before I see but I got a hard time imagining Airstream being able to match Oliver's quality and customizability (that a word?).

They will outdo Scamp, Casita and Escape in BC, specially cause Casita and Escape got rid of their smallest trailers.

But I doubt they'll outdo Oliver anytime soon. I hope I'm pleasantly surprised though!

Hi

It will be fun to watch. I think the fiberglass approach makes a lot of sense for a small / light trailer.

Hi

If you spend time in tents, *any* trailer is watertight by comparison

Indeed, there's a lot less in the way of seams on a full shell fiberglass approach. You still can mess up the doors and windows. Fiberglass flex is not your friend on that part of it. Of course *nobody* would make a trailer with a door that leaks ...

Actually my Casita door did leak haha.

But trust me I had way more peace of mind in that area with the fiberglass sandwich than I do with this lil seamstress.

FYI there is an earlier Fans of the Nest thread:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f142...an-150136.html

. . . and the Nest was discussed extensively here:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f483...am-144000.html

In the Fans of the Nest thread I just linked, I think someone said that they had re-tooled the FRP molds and changed the design somewhat, as I recall. I have not compared the photos, but the new one in the yahoo article looks different I think.

Can't imagine Airstream is rolling out another totally new trailer with all the quality control issues on the Basecamp and many other recent models.



PS -- AS says an early 2018 roll-out:

Thank you Peter, I will take a look over there. I have no doubt Airstream will improve the aesthetic design, they are very good at makin beautiful trailers which is somethin most manufacturers don't do. Yes, it is quality control that would concern me.

Thank you.
