I'll bet there's a lot more work launching a new FG trailer for Airstream than most of the small companies we know. Our little mom & pop outfits can do a couple units and sell them right away. Airstream has to manufacture at least 30 or 40 just to get them into the dealer pipeline. That's in addition to setting up a manufacturing facility, dealer training, parts etc. There's probably also some redesign going on to make them easier to produce. 2018 sounds about right.

I agree with Honda on this one. The travel and the company you're with are what it's about. More expensive trailers might have more features, but in the end, we love the things we love for what they are. My Scamp 13 works just beautifully for me.

My daughter sells RV's and I've been inside the AS base camp. Awfully clinical looking for me, and of course, not something I would make myself afford. But when they get the nest, out of sheer curiosity I'm going to drop by and have a look see. Only cuz it's FG.

Reading the Nest article, it had some phrases that reminded me of the liner notes on a new age music recording. So I'm going to steal one line and use it to describe my piano music.

Don's music is the perfect blend of sophistication and simplicity.

Quote From RV Daily Report About Airsteam Nest- "Id not be comfortable in 16′ very long even if alone. Not a fan of a wet bath either. After having a single axel TT once I never see them as being a safe tow either. The price of this one approaches a well appointed 28′ 32′ TT. On the plus side it can be pulled by a very small vehicle. It will make environmentalists happy seeing one parked beside my 43′ 5er for sure."

The above quote was copied from the comment section from the link that Hidalga posted. OK, guys explain to me why some men think 'Bigger is Better'!
