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

Hey Robert, awesome job on the prototype build. Can you tell me how you routed the solar panel cable in through the roof?

Congrats and looking forward to launch. Are you going to video live stream it to the forum so we can all watch The Nest roll out?? (Only half kidding....but you will put up lots of pics, right?)

Folks, we're scrambling to put the finishing touches on the Nest in preparation for our Launch party on Sunday.

Any FGRV forum members in the area are invited to stop by and take a look in person!

If you think you can make it, please send me a personal note, and I will give you all the details.

In any case, photos of the completed trailer will be posted next week.

I would so love to be there. Too bad you are not closer. Looking forward to seeing all the photos, both of the event, and the interior as well.

Ok I joined the forum today because I have been waiting to see the Nest. In fact I have checked this thread at least once a day for the past several months. I can't wait to see the updated pictures of the finished trailer!!!
