Wow! That's fantastic! Is this a magazine we could find on the stands now?

I subscribed on their website. I've received their magazine in orders from Vintage Trailer Supply. I'm not sure if they're on any stands...

I did use the trailer a couple times this summer. We went to Alumapalooza....the trailer was in a video Airstream put together promoting Alumapalooza for their "Live Riveted" campaign. And my sisters poodle was in it too :-). My hubby & I are going all the way down to the middle keys of Florida in January. Can't wait!!

My hubby & I just got back from a 3,000 mile trip to the Florida Keys with the Bambi II. I'm happy to report that she didn't fall apart & performed flawlessly! I'm also happy to report that my husband & I are still happily married after 2 weeks together in a 14 foot space! Here are a couple pix of our trip:

Bambi II Saved from Recycler!

I made a couple of improvements on the Bambi II. I first made a sewer hose holder out of a plastic fence post. It worked ok, but was rather tight, so this summer I made another one out of a larger fence post! So now one is for fishing poles or awning poles & the other for my stinky slinky.

Then I bought a 2' section of "the dominator" slinky & attached it to my dump waaaay under the trailer & then attached my Flush King, and another 10' section of the "dominator' . Oh.my.goodness!! No longer will I grovel with my flush king under the trailer! LOVE IT!!

And one more thing....I have this little plaque to hang in my Bambi II.

Congratulations on the T.C.T. plaque Becky B., those are very, very hard to get, and shows that your 1964 Bambi II was best of the best, great job.

Becky- do you remember if you had to ream the hole in the black tank bigger to accept the toilet flange? I am getting ready to think about installing mine (from VTS) and when I took it out to dry fit it, the part that is supposed to fit down into the tank does not fit the original hole. The original hole is a little too small.

I am wondering if I can just enlarge it or if I need to try to figure out a different flange?

No, we didn't have to change it. The black tank & shower pan were the ONLY thing that survived on the interior of my trailer. Lucky for you, I took a bunch of pictures of how we put a new flange in the existing hole. So here you go!Click image for larger version

That is definitely helpful, Becky. The one I ordered from VTS will not work, but I can see how yours would. Did you order IF333A (ABS) or IF333P (PVC)?

I may see if my local plumbing place can hook me up. Did you glue your flange on, or somehow screw or bolt it?

Thanks as always for all of your help!!

Ben

Honestly, it was so long ago that I don't remember if it was glued or screwed in. I want to say it screwed in, but not positive. ABS is black, I believe. So it was the PVC one. It's nice & snug. No wobbles!
