70th Anniversary 19-foot Bambi.
Our 2001 Bambi has taken us from Maine to Santa Fe, and from Key West to Cape Breton, but as we near retirement, we wanted a little more room, so we’ve moved up to a 23-foot International. At 19 feet and 3800 lbs (GVWR 4500 lbs), this is a very easy trailer to tow, and will fit in most any campsite.

The Bambi has the full Zip-Dee awning package, and is in very good condition. All of its systems are in good working order—we wouldn’t hesitate to set off in it for another adventure tomorrow.

We’ve made a few minor modifications over the years we’ve owned it, and kept it well maintained:

– New Goodyear Endurance tires last year (2022).
– A new air conditioner shroud in 2022,
– Air conditioner resealed in 2022,
– New tongue Jack a few years back,
– Added a Fantastic Fan
– Replaced the original pale blue carpet (not the best idea for a camper) with mold and mildew-resistant laminated cork flooring.

This model did not come with a TV, but one is included because our new trailer came with one from the factory. The TV not permanently mounted, but it has a tie-down for securing it while traveling.

The AM/FM radio has an auxiliary input for an iPod or mp3 player, but not Bluetooth.

An EZ Lift Elite weight distributing hitch with sway control is included. This hitch was recommended by Can-Am RV, and has worked extremely well for us.

Sewer hose, fresh water hose, 30-amp to 20-amp adapter, stabilizer jack crank, emergency tongue jack crank, and awning tool are all present and included with the trailer, as are tire covers and wheel chocks.

It comes with a full set of user manuals and, in case this is your first Airstream, the helpful Airstream Life book, “The Newbies Guide to Airstreaming.”

After 20 years of camping, our Bambi has a few scars, but nothing that has ever kept us from enjoying our camping trips.

– The stove’s igniter knob is finicky. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. I haven’t been able to figure out why, and it’s been that way for years. We just use a long-nosed lighter and ignore it.
– The window by the bed closes properly and securely, but needs something like a small stick to keep it open.
– There is a dent in the right rear corner. (See pictures.)
– One stabilizing jack is bent. It was that way when we bought the trailer in 2007, but it works well, so we’ve never bothered to fix it.
– As we live in Maine, a coastal area, there is some filiform corrosion.
– There is some clear coat failure on the upper front curved panel. It’s hard to see in the pictures, and not very noticeable in person, but it’s there.

We are the second owners and have a clear Maine title.
