Airstream’s Introduces $46K ‘Nest’ Model That Uses Fiberglass Instead of Aluminum

Published: April 21, 2018 | By: American Luxury Staff

The Airstream has symbolized travel and adventure for nearly 90 years. Trying to imagine a summer highway without the occasional spotting of the distinctive aluminum design is to remove a fiber of postwar Americana from the tapestry. The classic Airstream was the king of the campers.

But apparently Airstream has decided a change is warranted, and that future-forward cosmetics and a much more efficient overall design might sell a few more units. Their new “Nest” model is a beautiful way for the brand to ensure continued exposure. And it still looks flashy, even if it is a lightweight fiberglass body, and not aluminum.

The more sculpted gray-and-white look doesn’t lose sight of company history, though, and its classic styling cues are still there. It just trades jet-age aero for something a bit more up-to-date, more in line with contemporary van design.

And the interior is updated, too, with a queen-size bed, a full-sized bathroom, a Bluetooth-controlled lighting system, and several USB charging ports throughout. The Airstream Nest is both stylish and practically designed, with increased storage space, and a decked-out kitchenette and foldout table to make downtime a little roomier. And, as always, intended to make living on the go as  comfortable as possible, while drawing envious second looks from the Airstream-less.

The Nest is available now, starting at $45,900.
