We are selling our treasured 2005 19’ Bambi. My parents bought it in Portland about 2012, took it to Oceanside CA, and used it six to seven times a year. We purchased it from them in spring of 2021, used it a few times that summer, then in spring of 2022 we placed it on a lot in Port Townsend until last month. This is the 5th travel trailer we’ve owned, and 2nd Airstream. We have no complaints, but we are done with glamping for a while. It’s time someone else gets joy from this classic workhorse that’s easy to operate.
We modified the original double bed for a single bunk. My wife and I didn’t fit well on the double so she usually made up the settee for sleeping anyway. With the single bunk conversion there is a little more room for the bathroom door and changing area. We have the original base pieces to convert back to a double, you’d just need a sheet of plywood and a mattress. But before you do, the single bunk is a $400 foam mattress that is so comfortable, I’d suggest trying it first.
The following maintenance was performed.
o New wheel bearings
o New refrigerator
o New large toilet
o Single bunk conversion
o New Batteries
o LED lighting in all but a few places
o Resealed roof
o Installed new vent covers and AC cover
Do not kid yourself. This is not the Million Dollar treasure Airstream found in a barn. She is classy, easy to use, cheap to store, and gives you great shelter and comfort with style. But she is a working camp trailer with flaws. Some corrosion has begun, there is a dent on top, and has the black fretting issue in the headliner. Google search this topic and you’ll see for 5 years (2004-2009 I think) Airstream had a chaffing issue that comes through the headliner. We are pricing this trailer accordingly knowing these are issues. If you want some stylish fun, this Bambi might be perfect for you.
