Hi all...I just inherited a 16 ft Bambi and don't have a clue what I am doing. Thought I'd start by calling the local dealer and asking them to "educate me" on the trailer and the equipment related to it. Any thoughts...b/t/w, I am interested in nature photography as you might note from my user name...B

Welcome from the Atlantic coast.

What year is your Bambi? Pictures? Serial number. More information will help others help you. Use the "Search" function here - pick a topic like "draining water heater". etc.

You'll enjoy meeting other members so you might want to start a thread with a title like "Eugene OR - neighbors?" You'll probably find several people within 50 miles of your front door.

Good luck and see you down the road.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Welcome to the AS world. We have a 2006 Bambi Quick Silver 16'. If I can be of any help send me an e-mail and I'll try to answer any questions even though I'm fairly new to this life style. We are off again next week for 10 or so days thru Texas to Vicksburg, TN. Picked up the QS in late July 06 and have over 5K miles and 45 days in it so far. Can you hole up for a day in the rain? Yes and we have done it; Do you run into each other due to the small space? Didn't buy the trailer to walk around in - that's the reason it has a door; etc. etc. Again, congrats and enjoy!!

Hi Bob,
Welcome! As others have hinted, the 16' Bambi is a jewel and well sought after. As with all things, condition dictates worth/price, but you have a nice model. Congrats! What year is it?

Welcome Bob! You can get a first hand education, and then some, right here just by using the search function on the blue bar at the top of the Forum portal.

You'll find a bunch of shooters here as well as a monthly photo contest. Let's see some of your work.... we lover pictures here.

BTW what format do you work in? I'm just coming back into the world of film after having been retired from the biz for 20+ years. I have a 4x5 ... and am glad to see the world greening up again after a stretch of winter.

Thanks All...

Thanks for the responses. I really appreciate them...My photography...totally a digital shooter...Nikon D70S. I don't even know how to use film....seriously! I do mostly nature photogaphy but as a member of a photo club, I do experiment with abstract and various other club projects...My Bambi is a 2005 model that was used once for a three thousand trip (and I wasn't on the trip)...I will try posting some photos when I get a little more comfortable with this site...Hae a great evening....Bob

Thanks, Donna, for the response. I am meeting with the dealership maintenance people on Thursday for a 2 hour "tour" of my trailer. Then I think I will play "house" in my driveway for a few days before I get brave and head over to the coast for a day or two...I may be back to you screaming "HELP"...but, honestly, I really think I will just have fun...Bob

Bob,, driveway camping is the best way to learn about all of the functions of the trailer,,, i do it all of the time just for the fun of it,,, can still run to the house for the phone or forgotten items,,, outfit your rig with all of the things you think you need,,, food,, toiletries,, pots and pans,,, good way to find out what you need before you get too far down the road,,, good luck and have lots of fun!!! happy trails,, donna
