Please Help

Hello, I am in the process of purchasing a 2006 CCD 19' 0r 22'. For a single person, which is the better deal? Also, what is the advantage or disadvantage of having a wet bath over the regular bath? Which floor plan is better suited for a single person? Thanks for any information regarding the purchase of the 19' or 22'CCD.

Which will it be? Patrick McGoohan or Sean Connery? I can almost hear Johnny Rivers singing away. Pictures are always useful in trailer comparisons, so.... . Welcome to the Forums MrAgent007.

I'd honestly say it'd be best for you to actually see the difference between the bathrooms. Look at websites of dealers near you -- if they might give any idea of trailers on hand. Some may be on par with http://www.colonialairstream.com/newinventory.html -- but the final judgement will come after you buy "it" and say either "hooray" or "oops." You should probably lay your eyes on some of the differences between the models being considered. There will be details that you will prefer but I don't know any that are unique to the single lifestyle.

I try to use campground showers when I can. We tend to camp at noncommercial campgrounds (state parks, nat'l forest, etc) that do not have sewer hookups at each campsite, therefore we take something less than one shower per trip. It'd be different if we spent a lot of time in commercial campgrounds with both water & sewer hookups at a campsite -- dunno, that's not my style.

Your Hummer may just about be reaching it's max with either of these two models. A new 25-footer is a different beast altogether and would probably require a full-fledged 3/4-tonner. Best of happiness in your quest and welcome to the Forums!

Would you like that shaken, not stirred?

Anyway, welcome! As you can tell, I have a definite opinion on this subject. I looked hard at both but the deciding factor was the shower room and the separate grey and black tanks. I just don't see the use of the uni-tank.

Your opinions may vary. Have fun with your search!!

BTW, I find the 19CCD perfect for one, just a little tight for 2, but of course, that depends on just who the '2' is!!

I had long thoughts about 16 or 19 Bambi's and ended up buying the 16 as it is easier to clean, heat, cool, drive, park... and really big enough for 1 person.. The bathroom was the ONLY thing that made me hesitate... But I hope to shower outside anyway and ...

Personally, I would prefer a 22 for the extra space, as well as the second axle. That extra 3' is a lot of room. They tow much more smoothly, tend to sway less, and you have a margin of safety with the second set of tires. I really liked the rear kitchen in the 22, but I forget if they are still available for '06. As far as the wet bath, it just would be what your preference is. Some people don't like being able to use the toilet while showering, but you spend 5 minutes a day showering, and the space saved would be better used in living areas, than, umm, dumping zones.

It's probably "apples vs. oranges" here. You'll get both sides. There are people who want to go as large as possible and those (like me) who want as small and compact as possible. I like the manueverability of getting into small spaces and the ease of storage. I chose the 16ft after researching that and the 19ft. I find that it has plenty of room for one or two (and a dog) and I never completely fill up all the storage. I don't use the shower very often (haven't used it at all for the last several trips). I use the campground showers whenever possible. Why use your water and tanks when you don't have to? I like the layout the best of all I looked at but you should sit in the ones you are considering and visualize your own use. Good luck!

Hello All, Thanks for taking the time to share your wealth of knowledge regarding my posted RV size issue. I decided to purchase a Hazard Orange 22" CCD from Bill at D.J. R.V. Center in Danville, PA. Bill has provided outstanding consultative advice and secured a deal for me I could not say no to. The staff at Colonial Airstream has also been providing great advice over the last two years, but I had decided to purchase from Bill who gave me the better financial deal.
