Airstream fans have waited patiently for the arrival of the newest member of the aluminum family. However, this new trailer design is a little different—it’s fiberglass.
The Nest is the first fiberglass trailer produced by the iconic American company and offers a slew of innovative and space-saving ideas in a small package.
The Nest could be the perfect option for campers who want Airstream’s sleek, contemporary style in a much lighter package. The 16-foot-long Nest is only 3,400 lb. and comes in two floor plans.
Their 16U floor plan has a dinette that turns into a bed and the 16FB floor plan has a queen bed with a Tuft & Needle foam mattress. In the 16FB, a dinette bench is also available with a stowable tabletop for indoor dining.
The durable gel-coated exterior includes several tinted windows that let plenty of light into the smaller space. In addition, the windows have Oceanair blackout blinds for peaceful sleep.
The Nest also has a molded fiberglass rear door and a streamlined 20 lb. propane gas container near the hitch. The exterior has a shower with hot and cold water, LED lighting, manual stabilizer jacks, and is wired for solar. For extra outdoor living space, a powered retractable awning with LED lighting is also available.
The interior is a great use of space for such a small trailer. The kitchen has a two-burner stove with a cover, a large sink, 2-way refrigerator, on-demand water heater, storage for spices, Italian style laminated cabinets, and overhead storage.
The bed area has USB ports for charging cell phones as well as LED reading lights. Several interior colors and patterns are available for the flooring, galley, countertops, and walls.
The shiny, aluminum wet bath has a removable handheld shower, Thetford toilet, and storage for bath items.
The Nest is currently for sale for $45,900 and is available from dealers around the country. Download the brochure from the Airstream website for more information.
