Light as a feather! Airstream has just unveiled designs for the ultra-lightweight Nest, a 16-foot travel trailer. The company has ditched its iconic polished aluminum for a molded fiberglass in order to create the ultimate in minimalist campervan design.
Although the beloved trailer manufacturer has stayed true to its shiny silver aluminum cladding for almost a century, Nest’s molded fiberglass body makes the camper much lighter and more aerodynamic. The compact, streamlined design makes for an extremely travel-friendly ride.
On the interior, travelers will enjoy a minimalist modern design with enough space for a queen bed and a small, but sufficient kitchen. According to the company, the new trailer was designed for those who “want the legendary design sense, quality, and sophistication of Airstream, in a fresh, new package.”
The fiberglass Nest design is the brainchild of Nest Caravans, founded by Robert Johans. In 2016, Airstream purchased the Oregon-based company for an undisclosed amount.
The Nest trailers are currently in the development process, but are slated to hit the market in early 2018.
