Nest by Airstream: A Modern Fiberglass Travel Trailer

If you’re not one to pop a tent when it comes time to hit the road, there are a million recreational vehicles to choose from with the Airstream brand being the most recognizable. Not to rest on their laurels, the manufacturer of the iconic “silver bullet” has just launched a fiberglass travel trailer that has me seriously counting my pennies in hopes of a future purchase. The innovative Nest by Airstream jumpstarts a new era for the brand focusing on forward-thinking design that optimizes function.

Automotive designer Bryan Thompson was onboard to design the semi-monocoque fiberglass structure that features six windows, a skylight, a wide front windshield that resembles a pair of ski goggles, and a vertical window in the back doorway making for a light-filled interior.

At just 3,400 pounds, the Nest is easy to tow.

The interior is available in two floor plan options – one with a U-shaped dinette that converts to a bed and another that’s designed with a permanent bed complete with a queen Tuft & Needle mattress.

Inside, there’s plenty of storage along with premium fixtures, a two-burner stove, microwave, and even a bathroom.

It comes in two colorways – Clutch Blue (above) and Wingspan White (below) – you can choose from.

Nest by Airstream starts at $45,900 which seems pretty reasonable considering a luxury car starts around that same price.
