With over 1MM new RV's SOLD in the last 3 years selling em might not be a problem as the RV market continues to be strong however IF Airstream expects their dealers to repair these units under warranty as a result of a poor quality build in the first place they will have a real problem and a very possible failed product launch!

Time will tell!

Maybe the Nest is a Lexus never seen one.

Like a Toyota with lockwashers ?
I have to laugh though, they did away with most of the frame and kept the only part that breaks on the other brands!

The frameless design is a good idea if it could withstand rigorous testing. They won't have time and the customer may be stuck in the end. Hopefully Airstream will have a long warranty or put a full frame under it.

Not sure we can say that just yet... got to wait and see what Airstream actually does with it.

Not sure who "we" is??? ...Apparently "I" can. My comment was a reference to size mostly, but also to stuff like Oliver's under floor design. Nothing I would want, but at least an excuse for the high price.

LOL was using the general royal "We".

My point was its hard to judge if a product is or is not worth the asking price without first seeing the actual product.

Airstream has not posted photos or shared all the changes they will be making to the trailer as far as design and or finishes go yet. Just that they will be making them. I did read somewhere (not here) that they have said that they will be adding black water holding tank to the trailer though... will have to wait and see if thats true or not.

Its a bit like different boat brands/makes. Lots of fibreglass 18' runabouts out there for sale new at well under $25,000 but there are at least two brands that will set you back well over US $40,000 for a 17'er and they do not seem to be lacking in buyers or those who dream of one day owning one

My guess is that Airstream will probably have a creative finance plan to move them. Newer generations seem to love to finance things to the hilt. I wonder where the Nest will actually be built.

Yep, I know a couple who are financed to the hilt on everything: cars home, second home, everything has a loan. Even bought their last mattress on store credit. Of course, they are my octogenarian parents. Damn "newer generation" needs to get offa my lawn!

I think they're way cool, but I would have to ask how much it cost! LOL
