It's funny how these things are now popping up all over the place. In addition to the Happier Camper, the Nest Caravan company is now taking customer orders:
NEST Caravans

These are pretty slick too...

Yup. The Nest. Huge sink and no counter space to put the dirty and clean dishes. Sit side by side at the dining counter so you can't hide your playing cards. These are all important design issues to me.

I didn't notice any window curtains or bug screens on the NEST Caravan. 30 thousand US dollars before options or taxes seems high, to me, for a 17' trailer.

Forgive me if this has been already shown; did a search and didn't see a previous post.

We've seen two of these now and people love 'em (maybe in a way only a mother could.....). $24K

There's a bunch of stuff about this trailer on Facebook. I haven't read most of it. My question is does it need to be unfolded to be usable? If so, IMHO that makes it almost as worthless as a tent trailer if you're a traveler (vs. destination) person. But still, different strokes for different folks....

What people like is the NASA engineer engineering. Also, this sport model is 1540 lbs. dry. Not sure about "unfolded". The pop-top obviously comes down, but the rest of it is fixed as I remember.
