It's not hard to believe that I was fed incorrect information at Bates RV when I was doing the initial research. Unfortunately, a lot of the folks there are not playing with a full deck, and it was before I was a member here.

Just goes to show ya'................stuff is not always what it seems. I still like my 19CCD a lot, and no one is 100% correct all the time....not even me.

We have to agree about the single tank being a non-issue. We would not dump the gray water on the ground even if it were "legal". Why attract insects to the campsite?

A concern we have is about air quality in this small space, particularly after a long cold night in a mostly closed-up trailer. Also, we find it necessary to keep things scrupulously clean - for example, we saute things briefly and never cook with garlic inside. When you visit other RVs, have you ever noticed an odor to the place and wondered if others would have the same reaction to your small space? Wet people coming in from a rain is one issue, a wet dog is another, good luck!

We bought our 16ft Bambi CCD new in 2005, we have really enjoyed it. We have mostly taken it to campgrounds that have full hookups but there have been a few times that we did not have sewer to hook up to in which case, we tried to conserve on water. The combination grey/black tank has been fine. I have to agree that this size of trailer is very easy to pull and manuver. We just bought a larger Airstream however and now it's time to sell the Bambi, we will miss it!!

I hope so, that's our plan

Were newbies too. We pick up our 2005 19' Safari tomorrow and we are totally stoked about it. But part of the decision to lay down so much doe on anything, is the fact that when we are geographically separated, instead of one of us getting an apartment, they will stay FT in the Bambi.
Sure do hope it is possible- if not we'll give it a run for the money.
