And we're back...

Nest will be offering tow vehicle color matching as an option, So we painted our prototype to match our silver Cherokee (a mid-size cross-over with a 3500 lbs towing capacity).

Robert,
Can that jack be turned 90 degrees to allow clearance with tow vehicle? The handle may be too close for some.

With the Nest back in our shop we were able to affix the exterior components, cargo access door, utility ports, taillight bowls, DOT lighting, etc.

Hitched to the Cherokee, its off to the upholstery shop for interior wall covering. (Side windows and wheel flares get installed upon its return to us.)

Should the jack handle get too close, it can indeed be rotated.

REAL sweet!
It's fun seeing it all come together.

Any chance we could soon see some photos with a person next to the trailer for a sense of scale?

Thanks Robert!

WOW !!
Even with all the necessary opening and accesses it is still soooo clean!
The windshield is probably my fav feature along with maybe the beak.
Smooth unbroken lines throughout make it a pleasure to look at.
Thank you for sharing, bet U be a proud PAPA,lol
