I did follow the tread. Good info. Thanks. I'm looking at a F150. It would be over kill for a Nest. But probably ok for a 21" Bigfoot. I was even thinking of going the 10.4 truck camper but that would require a very expensive 350. I would love to see your pix. Greg

Oliver might be another idea for you Greg, stunning quality and company that really backs their owners like Escape in BC does. Keep us posted on your progress.

Oliver sent me their literature; I like it a lot. My concern is turn around space on the inside. I like it that it's right down I75 from me; I live in Ohio. I like the twin bed model; I'm single so don't need a ton of space but want room for a guest. I'm looking at Escape, too. I am willing to pay for quality (within reason).

Robert Johans from Nest Caravans just emailed me. The prototype should be ready in 6 weeks.

Frankly, it's about LAYOUT! There's a bunch of 17-22" all molded towables now in production (or close) and "bunch" is subjective.

I love Ten Forward and the Escape (+ Customer Service) is what led me to decide on the best way to spend my money (and my future travels).

Best of luck in your decision!

I'm sad to hear that Galileo is gone. It was a sweet looking camper. I toured their models at two separate RV supershows in Tampa. All fiberglass and composite interiors, very classy. Very pricey, too, as I recall, but some good design ideas. One thing I didn't like in the early model was a lack of a rear window. Backed into a camping spot (as most of us usually are), the rear window is our best view. The early Galileo didn't have a front window either...
There was a mod to add a rear window, though, at a relatively small price, as I recall.

I remember when those came out.

There was a brief period then when several trailer manufacturers thought there was a market ready to bloom for expensive "luxury" trailers. They thought something shiny with a good layout could be priced in the stratosphere would be snapped up by retiring boomers.

It's laughable if you think about it. There are VERY few people who will pay big money for a trailer. The bar is extremely high, so you better deliver something extraordinary for the money. High quality, as in overbuilt, technology or chic design aesthetic is the expectation. That's why Airstream can command $80-$90k for a trailer and there is a 6 month wait list. Oliver, as extraordinary as it is, is cheap by comparison, but a very overbuilt trailer. But there are very few who'll pay $40-$50k for one.

I know many on here are really excited for the Nest project, but I think they have a very uphill climb. I wish them luck, but the odds are long.

Are you asking me? I purchased a 2014 Ford F-150 w/ecoboost last April. Basically a 6 cylinder, unless needed. I love my truck!

Yes. Thanks. I'm looking at an F150 and Dodge 1500.
