People at work: can you bring your trailer to the float trip? ...NOT! and it's not a trailer.
Family:What are you going to tow that with?...IT's A drive it!
Friends:"That ok, if you want an old camper." Their 2005 $100,000 MH has been to the shop nearly every time they've taken it on a trip. I'll keep my easy to work on, by myself 25+ year old "camper".
Parents: Wish they had one instead of their 18' SOB. I've been keeping my eye out for them. They always say they won't be able to afford one...both retired. I tell them, how od you think all the other AS people afford them, they didn't steal them, some bought new, some bought used and fixed them up.

We got our 16' Bambi Quiksilver in September.

Friends said a combination of "looks like fun" and "come visit us in it".
Parents said mostly "great you can come with us" and a very little bit of "wish you got a MoHo" (Dad is a FMCA local chapter president)

Campground opinions were the most interesting (and surprising)

50% - Can I look in sure is cute (and small).
40% - amazed that 4 people fit in it.
10% - 'you could have bought a 40' 5th wheel for what that cost'
.........(with me saying...yeah, but we don't really need anything that big)
.........(and thinking.......yeah, but then I'd be stuck with a 40' SOB 5th wheel)

Most heartwarming and heartwrenching was a young couple newly married with children who talked fondly about the 1970s Airstream that had been part of their lives when they were single. It was obvious they missed her greatly.

Welcome to the Forums. You will soon catch on to the lingo around here. If not, you can always ask. As you have found out, sometimes you get two different answers, but you will get an answer!
