Well I ain't a brand enthusiast so I can't speak too much to that but fiberglass trailers have got a rich, long history and Wally is actually parta that history.

I'd just wait and see. Bigger concern is quality control.

The addition of a new line of small, light modern fiberglass trailers doesn't threaten bigger aluminum trailers any more than do Sprinter class Bs or big square diesel pushers with an Airstream badge.

A long and loud "Amen" for there being light years better quality control for the Nest than what was expended on the new Base Camp.

I really feel your pain even if no one else agrees. They didnt learn anything the first time they went fiberglass. Oh well hope the new saying wont be " Once you go fiberglass you will never go back"

Airstream needs a product line that EVs can tow.

Have you ever stayed in a sailboat? Can you say "off gassing".

Looks like a really nice travel trailer, may really help Airstream in the European market. Well Done

Only if Airstream price match the current European fiberglass caravans.

It will be interesting, as next month the UK business is taken over my Swift Caravan Group (who already make and sell caravans (travel trailers) and motorhomes) and if the Nest were to come over it would be selling directly against their own Basecamp model....which lists at $21K (before discounts).

It's a little different in mainland Europe where business is already very good for the narrow body European versions of the classic bodies, and where the Basecamp is already going through the approval process.

I would say that the Airstream badge is not the selling point here, the classic style is (imho) so I expect there to be very few sales of the Nest unless it sells competitively.
