1961-1963 Airstream Bambi owners registry

I started a 1961-1963 Airstream Bambi owners registry on Facebook today! If you know someone with a Bambi let them know to register! I will put a link to the forums so they can find it!

Actually, lets start a registry here! It is for Bambi's produced from 61 - 63 only so if you have one list its VIN # and Picture and location so we can see how many there are left!

That VIN matches up with a 61 Ohio Bambi, not a 63.

Here's Our '61!

We believe our 1961 Bambi, Sweetpea II, was the 147th trailer manufactured in California (16TDL1747). We love her!

Howdy....We purchased a 62 a few months ago (162T449).....It's a little cutie. I searched for months all over the U.S., and finally found one about 2 hours away. It was in the same family for 35 years. I'm sure we will give it a great home.

Bambi

We have owned our 1961 Bambi (161T251) 5 years and have traveled about 8000 miles with it.

It should be on your title, registration and on a plate next to the door. It should begin with the numbers 16 and be seven or nine digits long.

The model # (16TDSS1659) is on the plate by the door, but we are looking for a VIN which should be on the frame. We can see a # has been stamped on the door side of the tongue up close to the body, but they are large #'s and I don't think there is room for all 9 of the #'s we read on the title.

My '62 is an Ohio model numbered 162T446.

Since I'm moving to Oregon at the end of June, I'll be selling 2 of the 3 trailers I have here (the 4th is already in Oregon) rather than tow more than one. Sure hope Bambi is the last one standing in the driveway.

I'd always heard the number of 200 left on the road; hope that's holding steady.
