That depends on what Airstream you have and what kind of access you want. For things like flushing out the tank, for example, in most trailers you could just stick a flush wand down the toilet but some have macerator toilets, etc.

Is this to fix a leak? A clog? Retrieve something so precious it's worth the experience?

Oops!

Sorry...

2001 Bambi 19’

A blowout on the TT tore the plumbing off. The piping broke at the flange coming out of both GW and BW tanks. I can get to grey water tank from underneath but the BW tank is above the plywood and below the commode with no apparent access. Because the break was right at the reducer fitting exiting the tanks I need to be able replace the fittings. In addition to the repair I want to see if I can upgrade the 8 gallon BW tank to the later (03?) 17.3 gallon.

Sounds like you will have to remove the toilet and it's platform to gain access.
Not intimately familiar with a Bambi. I am sure others here can help.
Especially with going with a larger tank.
