I hope this worked out good for Robert, I know he sure poured a lot of time and resources into the development of this trailer. I chatted with him a fair bit off the forums, and he certainly is a nice, helpful guy.

Might be the best April Fools post of the day. LOOKS real... But hard to imagine Airstream has really been interested in growing their business by establishing a molded fiberglass line...

I don't think this is an April Fools joke. I've sent Robert an email congratulating him and wishing him well on his next venture. Hope he stays connected to the all-molded-towable group as he has some terrific ideas.

I just heard from Robert. Yes, this is true. He'll be making the official announcement on FiberglassRV sometime over the weekend.

Very interesting acquisition. It will be interesting to see what Airstream with it's production and marketing capability can do with the pricing. If they can get that down below $20K with a dealer network, etc. it could really go well.

In the spirit of wild speculation that has occurred on this forum recently, do you think they will make the new Nest out of aluminum and rivets?
