And all the more power to you! This is not a Dissing forum, this is a exploration of all things FG! I want a Nest, do not care about the Price, Do Not Care About The Amenities. If you like Casita, or Lil Snozzy, or Scamp, or Escape, or Boler, or Burro, or Egg, or Oliver, or.....get them! Give me the NEST!

nuff said!

Relax.
Some of that exploration will be a discussion of the pros and cons of various brands. If you want to spend your money without regard of the issues, go ahead.

And I will! Bring on the NEST! It is very difficult to discuss when the total reveal has not happened. Robert built it one way, we do not know how AS will release it as we have not seen the interior....my MONEY is with NEST! Exchange be dammed!

I can certainly feel your enthusiasm, Paul! I, too, look forward to what AS will do with the interior. So far the teasers have just been a rehash of stuff we already know.

Bruce, too lazy to pull up Robert Johans' build thread, but my recollection is the roof was always like that.

Casita is the best bargain for a fiberglass trailer. I like the 17fd, because of the captains chairs. But I'm thinking about the Lil Snoozy seriously. Still going to be a couple years before I make the move so I'll have time to change my mind.

Bruce, I am truly sorry I caused offense. The "lazy" remark referred to myself, not to you, but I see now it could be taken otherwise.

No, the best bargain is getting the trailer you want at a price you can afford

Or in my case, getting the trailer I wanted, which would have been MORE than I could have afforded if it weren't for a terrific US to CDN exchange rate. Today, that would be similar to being on sale at 20% off. But, recently it's been as low as 26%.

How so? The word "bargain" is non-descript, and highly subjective.

If by "bargain" you mean 'the best trailer for the money', I know a few Escape owners (myself included) who would beg to differ with your conclusion. The same can be said for more than a few Scamp, Bigfoot or Trillium owners or whatever. Proof again that "bargain" is a subjective thing. If you're going to claim a particular trailer is the best bargain, you can't just drop the statement without telling us why.

Words do have meaning.
Definition of "bargain" as a noun:
"a thing bought or offered for sale more cheaply than is usual or expected"
synonyms: good buy, (good) value for the money, surprisingly cheap

Seems a funny conversation in a thread about the Airstream Nest!

I don't think the Nest is being marketed to "bargain"-hunters, whatever the word might mean.

By definition a bargain is a bargain by comparison to something else- the "usual" or "expected." Given the limited scope of the reveal at this point, it's not clear to what you might compare the Nest.

A Casita, on the other hand, is most often compared to a Scamp, and there are more than enough threads on that comparison already!

For the price Casita and Scamp given all around good fiberglass trailer, very well equipped and with most of the Comforts of home. About $21,000 will equip a casita or Scamp very well. Of course with the exchange rate, the Escape is also a great deal for Americans.
