Thanks for the response.
We are very happy with it, we were debating between 19' Bambi or this 20' trailer. We did not care for bedroom next to the bath in Bambi and my wife like to cook, so the 20' has lots of counter space. We have driven about 5K miles so far without any trouble. The water pump leaked which was repaired under warranty at C&G trailer in Bellflower.
I tow it with Toyota 4runner V8 engine with 2wd which as 7300 lb towing capacity and the TT fully loaded is 5000 lbs which gives us plenty of reserve power for uphill or passing. We plan to visit Yosemite during last week of September.

When we tried to take our 19-foot Bambi in the southwestern entrance last year (coming up from Sequoia), the park rangers didn't recommend it. They said that we should go farther north and enter from the west, as the roads there didn't have as many tight turns. They didn't actually tell us that we couldn't enter, but they said that if we broke down, there would be a lot of unhappy motorists besides us.

Personally, I think the smaller Airstreams would handle nearly all of the roads in Yosemite just fine, but there is a lot of traffic in this National Park.

When I went to Yosemite last April I towed my Globetrotter into the park via the northern entrance (Big Oak Flat Hwy 120 Corridor) and left through the western gate (Arch Rock Hwy 140 Corridor). No problems with either route - except for the delay at the one-way bridge along hwy 140.
