Okay, look: at this point, you're either on the tiny home bandwagon, and waiting for your chance to buy one, or wondering why people are still obsessed with small houses.

I get it - I love tiny homes, but the thought of downsizing into a glorified shack is not for everyone.

But what if you could enjoy all of the comforts of home in a tiny trailer you can park anywhere? That's the appeal of the newest Airstream trailer.

A Nest Away From Home

For almost 100 years, Airstream has been making trailers known for their craftsmanship, and their distinctive silver aluminium shell design.

But their latest offering, the Nest, is drastically different - and you can tell just by looking at it.

The Nest is Airstream's first model made from lightweight fiberglass, and it gives the trailer a look that's both modern and retro-inspired at once.

But the real appeal of the Nest is inside, because peeking your head into this 16-foot trailer feels like stepping into a tiny home.

The small space includes a storage area, kitchenette with fridge and two-burner stove, and either a seating area that converts into a queen-size bed, or a fixed bed with an extra seating area.

No matter which design you choose, the Nest also features handy overhead storage, panoramic windows, a skylight, and a bathroom complete with a shower.

It's made to suit all kinds of travelers, from the most adventurous to the least. You can sit under the trailer's powered patio awning, or curl up inside with a book.

With USB charging ports and power outlets, it's easy to stay connected to friends and family, even while you're driving to your next glamping destination.

And at night, you cull pull the blackout curtains closed and turn out the Bluetooth-controlled lights from the comfort of your cozy bed.

Even when it comes to hauling your Nest around the country, it's a little more convenient than a standard Airstream trailer.

The lightweight design means it weighs just 3,400 pounds, so you don't need a heavy-duty pickup truck to pull it along.

If you're already craving a Nest weekend - or thinking of permanently downsizing - the trailer's starting price is $45,900, and you can learn more on Airstream's website.

Are you in love with the Nest yet? Or do you prefer Airstream's full-size trailers?
