Fiberglass NestEgg Question for Donna D.

Hi all! We have our Escape 15A listed for sale, and are picking up a 2014 NestEgg next weekend. My question for Donna D. is if the NestEgg qualifies to still be a member with this forum? (I surely hope so). I noticed that there is no information under "manufacturers" on the NestEgg, though it is the only commercially built fiberglass teardrop that I know (but no longer being produced?).

Not Donna, but I don't know of any "qualifications" to be a member of this forum. All are welcome. Your NestEgg may not be entirely molded fiberglass, but who cares?

I have been a member here for awhile. Just don't want to not get into the discussions and rallies.

The myPod is another commercially produced, teardrop size, all-molded fiberglass trailer. It's smaller than the typical teardrop, though, and lacks the usual rear clamshell galley.

I can't tell if the NestEgg is all-molded or not, but one old thread (Nest Egg Teardrop - Molded Fiberglass & Honeycomb) mentioned "honeycomb" construction and "composite." I hope Donna chimes in- if anyone would know more about the NestEgg's construction, it is she. Kim, I'd love to hear more and see some photos of yours.

As to participation in the forum and related activities, you would be very welcome, as others have said. In the end, there is no ownership requirement, just an interest in and enthusiasm for "all-molded fiberglass towables."

Sounds like you are down-sizing a bit. Happy travels!

NestEgg has moved to Idaho and seems to be back in production. Their trailers are man of manufactured composite fiberglass: layers of fiberglass never a fiberglass honeycomb. Guess that doesn't mean molded, but all fiberglass construction. In excited to bring it home!

That doesn't sound molded to me, either, but I hope you'll stay connected on FGRV. Share some photos when you get her home.

I think a true all-molded teardrop would be possible, practical, and way cool. I am seeing a swooping shape, molded-in, retro-style wheel fenders and clamshell doors sides and back. The divider between the sleeping compartment and galley would provide structural support. Any why not a honeycomb fiberglass floor?...

Sounds like you have the next best thing!

Not Donna D. either, but this forum has everybody and everything on it. When it started years ago and was owned by someone else it was supposed to be "molded fiberglass exclusive trailers" ( meaning the 2 halves were produced in a mold- not sheet fiberglass), and you had to have that to attend a meet. Most all the meets in the PCNW aren't like that anymore except some that are even brand exclusive. I am sure you can continue to be a member here if you wish but might find some of the teardrop forums more helpful. As for the manufactures listed on the top tab- those are all true molded fiberglass brands only made in molds. I thought you might be talking about getting a new "Nest" caravan by Airstream but I see it is a teardrop.

Thanks Deb for the clarification! I knew our Uhaul and Escape were two halves molded together, just wasn't sure about that being the original criteria. We will definitely post some pictures after I paint it, per usual for me.

Molded fiberglass

What is the criteria for molded? If the fiberglass is chopped and sprayed or layered with fiberglass cloth, both are done in a mold. I undrdstand forming a trailer from ready made sheets of FPR would not be a molded unit.
