CampCollector,

Just spoke to "Steve" at George Sutton RV, and he says they have an '03 22 ft International AS (as oppsed to the CCD) this one has the dinette over the curb-side tires) , and has a wish price of $29,995.00
You might be able to talk them down a bit if they are motivated.
Glad you weren't hurt. Things will work out.

One thing about the 22' International is that the side dinette on one side of the dinette near the curb has the wheel well covers that make it very hard for 4 folks to use it.

Check one out....

Slivertwinkie,

If I'm not mistaken, the 22 ft International "CCD" has the curbside dinette. The "AS" has the road-side dinette with the bed that runs long-wise up front. It may have the wheel boxes under the dinette as well. This is what George Sutton RV has in the form of '03 Intern'l AS.Airstream. The "CCD"bed runs cross-wise.
I was trying to find a viable unit to replace CampCollector's Bambi.

Whoa there TEX

Thanks for the help guys but lets just see what happens with my Bambi before we all get on the wagon and hitch up a new horse.
Beside I like the new 25ft International Blue streek with the front sofa. Also the 22ft doesn't have the dual battery box or the larger propane tanks, and the shower is different, Im 6 foot tall and in the 22ft AS shower, my head hit the ceiling.

Good things come to those who wait

Bus,

You're right about the CCD vs the AS. The CCD is a bit nicer but as you pointed out it too might have the same issue. The dinette on the CCD is just a bit further back than it is on the AS on the other side.

I've not been in a CCD, but have been in the AS. Not a big fan of that one. Compared to the Bambi it's a very different camper. The only thing I liked about the 22' units was that they had a dual axle. Some of the same other compalints collector mentions were also why I didn't care too much for the 22 foooters as well.

All in all, I agree the 25' make the most sense to me after the Bambi..so much so, I'm trading my Bambi for a 25' Safari.

I noticed that you had a Jeep, was that your tow vehicle for the Bambi?

Jeep Cherokee

Yes the jeep is the tow vehicle for the Bambi.
Though it can do the job, It struggles. I was about to by a new Dodge Ram 3/4 ton truck with a Hemi as my new tow vehicle (Bright Silver with chrome/ Laramie package) But Now I will have to wait and see what the future holds.

I do not reccommend the Jeep cherokee classic to anyone who is considering it as a tow vehicle. The 4.0 liter is a strong engine but the jeeps short wheelbase and lack of wheight make it a poor tow vehicle for long hauls or a comfortable driving expierience with this size of trailer.

Get a truck or Large SUV
