Nice photos. It looks like Bambi was enjoying the trip. What an adventure!

Jim, go to the two Colorado dealers and check out all the trailers you can. See how the bed feels, see if you fit on the toilet (a lot of people's legs hit the door), sit in it and tell the salesman to go away for a while. Take a lot of time. Do not bring any money or credit cards with you so you cannot put a down payment on a trailer before you are ready. LIkely that the 2009 and 2008 are the same, and there still seem to be some new 2007 Airstreams at some dealers across the country.

When you do make a decision, start looking on the internet for dealers because you may well find a dealer in another state who will give you a better deal and service on a 2007, or a new 2008 may be cheaper than a used one.

Good points, and thank you for the thoughts. I think we'll have to spend some time just sitting in a Bambi and seeing how well we fit the bed/potty/table. That seems to be the constraint.

Cute factor is definitely way up there. On a recent drive along Hwy 1 north of San Diego we saw some Bambi and smaller AS on campgrounds right along the beach. That was a big push that got us past just thinking to looking and shopping and figuring our TV capacity.

Hi Mike,

As you folks are in Mass. maybe you could join us for the Chilly Man Rally at Salisbury Beach at the end of April. Check out the rally listing at the bottom of the page. If you haven't been there, Salisbury is really a nice place - right on the ocean where the Merrimack River emties into the Atlantic. The park is huge so you shouldn't have any trouble getting a reservation. Hope you can make it.
