Maybe they are modeled after each otehr?
The Casita and a similar trailer have been around forever...

The Nest is from a company purchased by Airstream and is a new design and I would think better design.

Erwin Hymer is going to be selling a line of lightweight travel trailers based on a European design and built in their new plant in Ontario. The European version is very popular. Can be towed by just about any reasonable sided passenger car so should work find on a Class B van.

This was indeed an interesting video.
When we bought our Casita - we had a Curt 17200 anti-sway bar installed from the factory.
We brought in the hitch ball, and they welded a piece to it (for the chrome end), and another part on the frame (the black end).
I must say, that the Curt anti-sway worked great, even in the snow.
This is what it looked like -

The only problem is that you cannot back with the anti-sway engaged.
You *must* loosen the chrome bar all the way - otherwise you will bend it for sure... and that is a bit of an inconvenience.

Some folks I met at the Casita factory preferred using the Reese anti-sway brand as shown here

I can just speak for myself, and I would _never_ tow without anti-sway... Experienced tower or not.
This even applies to whatever you tow behind the class B van (which would be in the range of 2000 or less, I guess)
