Bought a Bambi today

We're excited. We live in MI and the unit is in FLA. We may drive down to pick it up, or have it delivered. Not sure yet. We can't wait to use her!

Why let someone else have the fun of towing your new obsession, er, acquisition home? Florida is noce this time of year. Besides, if you time your trip to pick it up right, you can pick it up, and come to the Florida State Rally in February, have plenty of Airstreamers there to ensure your rig is set up correctly for the trip home, and visit the company store for goodies, all at once.

The rally is the third week of February. It is at the Sarasota Fairgrounds, off Fruitville Road. If you want more info, you can check the Rally forum here. Just go to the forum list, and find the rally zone, and look for WBCCI rallys, then look for the Florida State 2006 rally. We will also be having a forum rally within a rally at the same place and time. It will be more like a get-together, with possibly a dinner and movie one night in lieu of the scheduled entertainment.

Everyone see what you see. If you click on "go advanced" you have more text editing options available as well as the tools to upload images into your posts - that's the only diff...

A 40 mile or so hop, skip, and jump. The weather will be better to return to at the end of the rally, also. (end of feb/beginning of march) Weather right now is probably not that great to try towing a new trailer in up there.

Thanks. Do you know why when I registered, that the drop down box asking what rig I own didn;t list the 2004 19' Bambi. I had to select the 2004 19" CCD as it was the closest thing to what we have. ALso I bouth it from BAtes RV on Tampa. ANy way to find out more info on them? (HAven't mailed the check yet). Thanks!

Thought we'd pick up back over here vs. the trailer values thread....Bates was really nice. The owner FLEW IN while we were there this past Sunday in his helicopter!! Landed on the roof of the building-pretty neat. Anyway, they are a pretty bid dealer-can't seem to find another one down here that has as many AS on the lot!! They were moving them to the fairgrounds for the show this week.

Darrell-my parents will also be going to the rally. It would be neat to be able to go there, and if you had ANY questions about your Bambi, there'd be plenty of people there to tell you about it!

Hey Double D -- same here! We are also very excited, as we just purchased a new bambi too. We live in New England, and as far as I'm concerned spring can't come fast enough.
