I hope I'm posting in the correct sub-forum? I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce my bride & myself to the forum & most importantly thank the forum members for all the help/assistance over the last few months.
I'll not waste to much of members time in a long story, but my sweet wife & I are long time tent campers & have visited many spots camping to CA, UT, AZ & others wonderful states out of our home in Granite Bay, CA. Last year during our camping trip to S. Utah we found ourselves having to move to different spots until we were able to get into our fav campground the UT state Petrified Forest Campground. While in another campground the day before while walking around we spotted a pop-up trailer & visited with the owner. On the drive home we decided we needed to get something. Our tent on wheels.
Making a long story longer, my wife began many months of research/study etc. & through that research decided on an Airstream Bambi 16'. On discovering this forum we were able to learn sooo much it made our selection/education possible.
You folks are the best! Thanks again!
Well we ended up buying the below 2009 Airstream 16' Bambi International Ocean Breeze. It was lightly used & in immaculate condition. We picked it up Friday & taking the advice & wise counsel from the forum, we had the dealer we bought it from inspect all the systems, bearings repacked, brakes done, all tanks cleaned flushed, etc. We also added the Blue Ox system & the Prodigy Controller.
Because there doesn't seem to many of the 16' Bambi International Ocean Breezes available (my wife decided on the model with 2 wrap around windows, rock guards, Ocean Breeze decor) we only have a slight idea on value. We bought it for just over $20/k & would love input if that was a fair value?
Sorry for such a long post, I do apologize if I'm out of line. But were so excited about our Bambi & joining such a wonderful vibrant community. We're hitting the road soon!
