T@B and T@G are the brand names of two lines of trailers.
Google each name and click on Images and you will become an expert on what they look like.

If you get interested in buying one, please check back and we can send a crises intervention team to help you resist that temptation.

Cool, sleek-looking Nest...but obviously designed by a man who doesn't do dishes...the obvious design flaw: no counter space next to the sink.

Agreed. And if you are stuck in the trailer because of poor weather, where can you sit back and read a book or watch a movie or play cards? Does the bed convert to a dinette?

Style- top notch
Craftsmanship- none better
Practicality- not so sure. As others have mentioned, my wife would be saying "where's the room for cooking and doing dishes?"

I'm going to agree with the comments about the Oliver. Now that's a fiberglass alternative to an Airstream.

All of this said, Robert is a visionary, and we could use more visionaries in the RV industry. I've seen enough cheap and poorly built RVs to last a lifetime.

This is pretty much my take, all around. Practicality is a pretty subjective thing, and compromises are always made in any design of a trailer this small. For those of us primarily using the great outdoors, the setup would be fine.

This trailer may not be for everyone, but there is no denying the innovation and quality that is put into the build.

Exciting description! Is the bed always a bed, or can it be converted to a sofa of sorts? I can't make this out on their web site.

Rick. These look like great trailers which has the industry up to a new level. Would like to see them come out with a dual axle version.

I'm rather mystified as to why they dont post more detailed pictures on here to answer ALOT of the questions posed. Maybe they're not aware of this new post??

To everyone who has asked questions. I'm traveling but I will come back in the next day or so to answer them.


Robert is aware of this thread.


I do suggest to go to his website and either email or call him. That is how I reached him.

The Nest looks like a work of art. Not something I would want to spend much time in during crappy weather with 3 dogs and wifey.
