Judy, I certainly hope you post again and again -- and find a combo you love!
I didn't mean to infer that you should get a 3/4 ton tow vehicle for a Bambi. I do know of someone who does tow a vintage Bambi with a 3/4 ton, but I will be the first to say that is overkill unless you have the 3/4 ton first and then decide on the Bambi.
Many have made suggestions for good tow vehicles for a new Bambi that would be a better alternative to the Odessy and I agree with their suggestions. A good used, dedicated tow vehicle is a good suggestion, also. A mid to late '90's Surburban or Expedition would do nicely and prove very useful at other times as well. Perhaps not as a daily driver because of economy, though.
In the end, you and your family will have to make the decision. You asked if anyone was using an Odessy to tow with and so far only one person responded with negative experiences. That should tell you something about the wisdom of it. If you are looking for afirmation about how great it can be and wonderful the economy is with the Odessy, it doesn't look like there is anyone who has had that kind of experience.
Good luck with your decision and hope to see you posting about your purchase of a Bambi in the near future. I think you will love Airstreaming like the rest of us. Tell us of your experience, good or bad.
