Airstream Releases Update on Nest Travel Trailer

Mon Jul 10, 2017

149971524143158.jpgThe Nest is finally becoming an Airstream reality and the company has released a sneak peak of the new trailer.

At Airstream, the Jackson Center, Ohio-based cmopany is always looking for ideas that make travel and adventure more exciting, more freeing, more comfortable and more beautiful. And for years, the company has had its eye on small, fiberglass travel trailers. In fact, Founder Wally Byam built an experimental fiberglass trailer more than 60 years ago. Since then, it’s become more and more apparent that travelers want a new option that’s not just compact but also contemporary and design-focused.

That led the company to the Nest ― a design that just felt right ― with its clean lines, smart function and modern form. Nest was early in its development when Airstream found it, but felt the concept would be loved by a much larger audience. With that, the Nest became an official part of the extended Airstream family. The engineers have taken an already-stellar concept and added the design details and comforts that make Airstream travel trailers stand apart.
