I went from a 19' to a 25' and there is just no comparison. Just the right size for most....though it will sleep 6, it's clearly not geared for 6 adults. You might get 5 adults if you push it. Really I think what they got at is 2 adults and 3 or maybe 4 smaller kids....besides, with 6 folks, that 18 gallon black tank might be taxed.....no issues with 3 adults for about a week, but I could easily see it pushed with 6 folks, particularly if you boondock.

Safari Sport vs Safari 19

Last year we bought a Safari Sport 17 sight unseen, internet purchase a month before the model was released for general sale. We have used it for almost a year and have been very happy with it. Just completed a 10-day trip that I will soon write about over on the "On The Road" section. Anyway, on our way home we stopped at Airstream of Arkansas and had another look at a couple of 19-foot models. They seemed HUGE to both of us. Two years ago we thought the 19's were too small! Then took a chance on the 17 Safari and agree that we bought the right rig for us.

We would probably pass out if we stepped into a 25.

My wife and I just got a 2008 Bambi Limited Edition. We are like the lady who posted above. Just us, 2 goldens. I was simply just tired of buying other peoples junk and having to fix everything at the campsite, or at home later.
We took the SILVER DOLLAR, on her maiden voyage and had a blast. Of course there were a few hic-ups. The pump has a short in it so it pumped on its own terms til I figured out if you beat on it, it would work. So, I showered while my wife beat on it. Nice warm shower UMMM!
Personally, I would rather run thru hell with gasoline underwear on than to have kids in there with me! 19 feet just isn't eneough. Keep looking....you will find the one that fits you.

We found our 19' Bambi and have taken it out twice so far, with two more trips planned this summer for five days each. It is perfect for two of us and our little dog except for one thing. My DH sleeps on the dinette fixed up as a bed for several reasons, one of which is his CPAP machine. It's just a bit short for him but the bed would be also. We're trying to get the right setup for him by juggling pillows around, etc. I'm thinking the 25' Bambi would work better for us but that would involve upgrading our tow vehicle and we just have to wait a bit on that. In a couple of years we plan to spend more time on the road and perhaps at that point we'll expand. Meantime we'll make do and be glad we're not doing this in a tent. We love everything else about the unit!
