If you order I would insist that they install interior shutoff valves at the very least. I've begun to consider where and how I can access this plumbing. Spaces are extremely tight...
The Classic has a shutoff valve under the sink for the single faucet under carriage. If there are no shutoffs that would be really bad. Thank you for that information.

less is more

Skutman and RDM16CCD -- Thanks a ton! This is all very helpful information, whether we finally decide on the 16 or the 19. Of course, the 19 will give us more tanks, but the information that describes living small with 2 kids applies to both sizes I think. Doug had already been working on some ideas like what RDM came up with for packing in and packing out of the trailer. The use of the colored duffles is very good, and simple. And I had been wondering about whether one of the kids could make use of floor space for sleeping if they wanted to.

Outside shower

On the 16 ft QS the shower turn on & off are inside, you just open a little
door. Very cool & so easy and does save on the grey water. And you do
not have to wipe down the shower etc. anything to make life more fun &
easy. Happy Trails, Betty PS still snowing here, Y'all come skiing, it is
the best.......well maybe Steamboat Springs, Co. has champaign powder,
our kids skiing in 15' of the stuff. Oh well, hope to be in green grass & sun-
shine soon, maybe at Snow Canyon out of ST George, Utah or Zion.

Think small

My late husband & traveled for two & a half Months in Europe in a Westfailia.
What a great trip 11 countries. We did not miss a thing,had very little and
were very comfortable. Met some wonderful folks camped next to us out of Paris with
Kerries...needless to say made us homesick for our guys at home. The camp
grounds in Europe are wonderful, if you ever have the chance to take this trip
You would love it. We came home and bought a Westfalia then a Euro van. My now husband and I have owned three Rialtas and one 17ft Casita. Changed to a trailer when we were going back & forth to our property in
Steamboat Springs, Co. I would drive the MH and my husband the PU....that
got a little old so now in our little Bambi snug as bugs. Still snowing here but
we are leaving Wed. anyway. Happy Trails, Betty

Long Trip in Quicksilver

We just arrived home from a 3,750 mile trip in our new Bambi. Mosied to Texas
and had a great trip. We would have liked more shorts weather, but had very
little rain. A lot of wind so not many campfires, mostly sunny all the way. I think it was perfect timing. Arrived home to still almost 3 feet of snow in the
yard and it snowed yesterday UGHH! Time for spring...we had a taste of it in
So. Nv. NM. & Texas not so warm in Sedona, Az. The Bambi is perfect for us
and many people gawked with envy. Our Kerry Blues each had their own bed
and with our foam pad on our bed we slept like babies. Think we might head
back to Moab, Utah it was nice and warm there or Kahneeta Hot Springs in
Oregon out of Redmond. Happy Trails...John & Betty

We bought our Quick Silver Bambi last November during our luncheon. Anyone who has an Airstream with a combined grey/black tank come up with a grey water by-pass idea so as to not fill up the tank. This way when your sewer hose is hooked up, the grey flows right out and the black will fill the tank to dump later when full. That way you would have mega-capacity for the potty!

Kahneeta Hotsprings

Hi lew, thanks for info on the casinos. We are saving our money for gas. Kahneeta my old stomping grounds. I grew up in Portland and had a cabin
in Goverment Camp on Mt. Hood. We would go 15 miles the other side of
G. Camp to get out of fog & rain worked every time and we would bask in
the sun and enjoy the hot springs. They have really fixed the place up and
we enjoy a rally round with our kids from Portland, fun for all. Hey, y'all can
forget the pop up playhut. At least the 10/10..It was quite a sight with John
his son Scott & myself all trying to get the sucker repacked....finally left it
tied up with a rope for the kids to play even wiggled it's way out of
the rope Ha! Happy Trails, RGDS, Betty & John

Towel hooks

We ordered some chrome suction hooks that work perfect for towels in the
bathroom. You could put them anywhere you wish and they work great, take
down at any time. We got them through QVC but I have seen them at times
in a catalog. Cheers & Happy Trails, Betty
