Hi: Hilola... We watched the whole CAD of the Nest from this forum. As soon as Airstream bought it out... then it got $$$$'s. Alf

The last line in the article says..."But next time, we decided, we'd want something maybe just a couple of feet longer."

Yeah, like an Escape 19.

Nice article with a fresh inexperienced viewpoint. I enjoyed it. Should have been a pretty enjoyable weekend with a base priced 52K tow vehicle pulling a base priced 45K 16 footer. 97K minimum to get on the road equipped like this. Bet the cost of KOA camping did not impress them. Think we will stick with the 21 Escape and start drinking better liquor with the leftover money.

I still think Escape is the most value for the money. Look at the prices of a trailer built on the west coast, I think Homegrown is the brand. Loren

They've improved their site since I last looked at it, as well as their trailer offerings. They're in my neck of the woods! Would be interesting to pop in there one day.


I'll still take my Escape, but others are fun to look at from time to time.

I'd expect better if I was paying for this advert.
