My Bambi II is #2

Last four digits are 0002. Ohio made...purchased in NJ a few weeks ago. Needs lots of work, some of which is underway. I will be checking this forum group out a lot now as I see there are several with Bambi IIs and lots of info to be shared. Thanks!


Ben

Ours is #0052. Zolatone redo is complete as is new wiring and Marmoleum flooring. No current pix and we have a long way to go. Next comes PEX lines throughout and plumbing equipment.

I have # 204. Apparently loose/lost/missing battery doors are a common occurrence. I need one also. I bought my Bambi II in October 2010 and all was working fine. The PO painted all of the interior wood and the next thing I know, I'm tearing out walls, cabinets ..... everything! This will be really nice someday. Has this ever happened to anyone else, or am I the only person who just has to create work? If anyone needs an original Magic Chef 3-burner cooktop, a Dometic RM 2193 3-way refrigerator (I'm pretty sure this was purchased new in 2006), original sink (dated Feb 64) or an instant-on water heater (also purchased in 2006) just let me know and I can send some pictures.
Thanks, Gary

Airforums is filled with people just like you!

Check out my "It's a Girl!!!" thread...we started off thinking it would be a cosmetic renovation...turned out we rebuilt E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G and then some! And this wasn't our first rodeo ~

We've not regretted anything, but watch out, it's a slippery slope!

Shari,
I followed your "It' a Girl" thread and feel better knowing that I am not alone. I must confess, my mentor is Ken J. He is a wealth of information. Since he is responsible for assisting me in my decision to purchase my Bambi II, I thought it would only be fitting that we (meaning every person that currently, or have ever owned, or would like to own an Airstream) should convince Ken that he MUST buy a certain 22' local AS regardless of apprehesion (he just needs a little push from those of us who care).
If we can help him out, he will be a happy camper!

You are toooo much - I helped him tear it apart, but don't let him know that I have no idea how to put it back together.... LOL!!!

Richard - you are AMAZING - where do you keep finding this stuff??

I began gutting my Bambi II in early Fall. It has been too cold to do much else this Winter. I need to get the plywood floor torn up to reveal the rotted frame so some good friends can help me weld in new fame/tongue, then Nylaboard for new floor- then back to the rebuild.

My water heater and fridge are original- and not sure if they will work or not (probably not). Would be interested in seeing what you have available.

Thanks- Ben

Ben, My mentor forbids me to sell the sink. However the stove, fridge & water heater are very nice, nearly new. Attached are some pictures. Thanks, Gary

Mine is #003. There is one on ebay that looks to be #318. Not sure if I'm reading that right, though. That would put the number higher than what I've heard were made of the Bambi II's

He now has it listed at #118 which makes more sense. He originally had the whole trailer listed as a "1965 Bambi II" which makes no sense- although I guess anything is possible. Then you saw #318 which is now changed to #118- I wonder if this person has any idea what is really sitting in front of his camera lens?

I wish people would verify what they have before posting on eBay and such.

I'm sure he's listing that right. I just was looking at the picture of the serial number in his listing & it looked like 318 to me. That does make more sense. My bad!

I have #203. His initial Ebay listing was stated to be first titled as a 1965 in Georgia, very possible if it was produced toward the end of the year. I have had cars that were made in one year and titled for the next. At least he changed the year after several people contacted and informed him that Bambi II's were only officially produced during the 1964 model year. It is a nice looking Bambi II, but for 30K? He is going to have a hard time selling at that price no matter what background story he has for it. Like Ben said, I don't think he has a clue what he has or it is not all together legit. There have been a number of Airsteams for sale lately purporting to belong to Pam Anderson.
