Airstream’s Nest Is a Compact Escape Pod That Doesn’t Skimp on Luxury


Airstream founder Wally Byam started experimenting with fiberglass again within the 1950s. A half-century (after which some) later, his firm has lastly constructed the Nest, a plastic trailer that’s as trendy and rugged as the enduring, road-tested aluminum capsules. While Airstream’s retro-chic steel fashions can carry sticker-shocking six-figure value tags, its new fiberglass tow-along is half that—low-cost sufficient to draw a brand new era of consumers. The 16-foot Nest is compact however luxurious, with room for 2 to sleep, cook dinner, and wash up (it has a rest room with a bathe). The overhead skylight and gogglelike entrance window brighten each nook of the inside. And at 3,400 kilos, you don’t want a monster truck to drag it. Forget #vanlife—#nestlife is about to have its second.
