For Airstream's pricing, $40K is right there and should sell just fine. Will I buy one? No. But others will.
My local Airstream dealer has quite a few brandy new aluminium trailers sitting on a lot getting really dirty just outside of Los Angeles. If they can't move them who can? I wish them luck with their new venture as it is made here in the good ol USA and I am sure there are people who can use the jobs. Personally I think the old aluminium Airstream has run its course and the new Nest just isnt big enough for the money involved. People with that kind of money to spend want amenities and the nest just isn't big enough to accommodate them. Airstream is revamping the initial design and I am curious how they go about accommodating for their market share.

I will pay that $10K extra for Airstream Decal or Die Cast Name! As a mater of fact will end up paying $13K with exchange. As to Hype, do not see it and do not see the slander to other units. I Want A NEST, nuff said!

Well Paul, you're exactly the kind of buyer Airstream is looking for but for those who don't happen to share that sentiment there are other options:

Go get em tiger !

Hey Randy, if I could do it today I would. I have even considered the Basecamp, which would exclude me from this wonderful forum.....but will wait with trepidation for the NEST!

I don't know if I'm old or not but I full time with kids in a Bigfoot. It can be done. I have a 17b

I think it comes down to lots of things. Like how you like to spend your time and how much stuff you have.

That being said I would trade up for a Silver Cloud but finding one is almost impossible they don't come up very often. We have started looking at Airstream but only the older ones. They were lighter.

Bigfoot holds its value I feel like an airstream. We spend a lot of time out dry camping and I like the National Parks campgrounds compared to others. It is small enough to put it any place and affords a time savings and lets me stop and have lunch that a pup does not. (Been there did that). It dwarfs FG in its size although wide and tall makes for some hard pulling on windy days.

That all being said if I go bigger (I'm thinking about it) I would go with an airstream because they are available and I can afford one and have the skills to work on it. Stick built never crossed my mind. The quality is not there. I can not pull it with an SUV at the size I need (or want). I can't afford to fix it based on value at the end of the project.
Oh and I guess I just like old things. There is something that makes me happy about taking something and fixing it up. I like hard work

But all that said it looks like we would be a two trailer family. If i went bigger I would have to keep this one to go camping.

The problem with the nest is there's no place to sit. If you make the bed into a dinette to sit, then there's no place to sleep. Setting in a scrawny little plastic chair at a desk is not my idea of comfort.

Yep, we leave our table/bed down as a bed, and sit at the two-person side dinette in our Casita Spirit Deluxe. Don't tell me the Nest, at double the price, doesn't offer that!

If I recall correctly, you sit at a counter, facing a window on the passenger side.
No way to play cards without the opponent seeing your hand. Or to play Scrabble, without your opponent seeing your tiles.

I don't think Casita will be sweating any over this entry into the FG arena.
