Of all the Airstream vintage models, the Bambi seems to be the most sought after and collectible. This Airstream Bambi is a 1961 model, the inaugural year for the iconic 16 foot Airstream trailer, and only 200 of the Bambi trailers were built that first year.The exterior of the trailer has been recently polished to a mirror finish. The Bambi is very easy to haul with a weight of just 1875 lbs and a tongue weight of just 200 lbs.
It has all working original fixtures including lighting, plumbing, toilet, stove, and refrigerator. Restoration work on the trailer includes a new wood floor, two new tires, new LED running lights, new AC, and new cushion covers. The 12 volt and propane systems work perfectly and the electric/plumbing utilizes the original fixtures. Almost flawless exterior, with only a few minor scratches. I am the 2nd owner and have all the original paperwork. This cutie has been stored in enclosed storage her entire life.
A simple extension cord for 110 V will bring power to this beautiful trailer and the vintage appliances use 10 amps of electricity. This is an incredible find especially for vintage Airstream enthusiasts.
Did You Know? In 1961, the Airstream Bambi trailer model received its name the same year as the famous Airstream African Caravan. When Airstream founder Wally Byam learned of a miniature deer revered by the Angolan locals, known for its strength and sure footedness, it was only natural that it became the trailer s namesake. The beloved creature was called O Mbambi in the Umbundu dialect of the Bantu language.
