Rivet Bambi II (and many other AS) found in RV book

I got Pictorial Guide to RVing by Brunkowski and Closen (Available from VTS) for Christmas. There is a whole section on Airstream post cards- and one on the bottom right side of page 60 is labeled as c. 1960s. I would say it is distinctly 1964 as there are three Bambi II trailers (along with several Globetrotters) shown in the picture.

At least I think (and hope) they are Bambi II trailers as they could be 1965 Caravelles. Can anyone confirm?

Haven't seen the book, but...which side is the door hinged?

If on the right, they are most likely 1964 Bambi II's.
If on the left, they are most likely 1965 Caravels.

Great point! They look to be right hinged! Probably Bambi II's then. I think that is cool considering the Bambi II trailers were only made for one year- and that picture caught three of them sitting together! They look just like the one sitting in my driveway!
