Cool 1961 Bambi with Serial# 1611

1961 Classic Airstream Bambi 16 Foot Travel Trailer | Thousand Oaks | eBay Classifieds (Kijiji) | 11936656

There is a '61 Bambi on ebay in California. There are 4 days left. I appreciate him telling me what the serial number is for this thread.

It is a "movie star". Good pictures.

My 61 Bambi has 1738 as the last 4 digits and is a California made trailer. I guess that means she was 138th trailer built.

Ok I have a chance to buy a 1963 Bambi, The asking price seams to be a little high but it does appear in restorable shape, and its been sitting for for around 2 decades!. The #'s on the side by the front door are 193D236 and also T0024670. I cant find these #'s to match anything on the web sites... Could someone tell me if this is a 63? And the value of it? Thanks alot! I hope to be on the road next summer!

Bambi numbers

I just bought a Cal. Bambi with Number 16TDSS1602 , from what I can tell reading forums it would be the Third made , this got me to wondering if the 1&2
Were still accounted for? Or could I have the earliest to still exist?

I would love some input?

Don't know where the 1600 is but Boeingboy has 1601 (the second made) so that means that you have the third made in CA.

Wonderful!

first Bambi

I do not know why people think first serial number of a model starts with 0. Does anyone own an Airstream where the serial number is 0000? I learned to count starting with 1. Every military collectible firearm I have owned, every limited edition painting I have owned or vintage Jaguar car I have owned has started with the number 1. I own the Bambi that ends with serial number 1601 which I believe means it is the first one made. I would like to see any evidence to the contrary, i.e that Airstream started counting with zero. That would make them unique from any other manufacturer that I am aware of. Starting with one means number 1650 is the 50th made-simple math.

61 Bambi

I am with you, unless someone can prove otherwise you have the first and I have the second Bambi made in Cal.

Just waiting for Andy D to acknowledge that the first was 1601 or then correct his post to show that 1728 would be the 129th built Bambi if they started with 1600. Does anyone have any airstream that has a serial number ending with 00?

bambi serial numbers

I wish Andy would acknowledge and correct his initial post here. The first Cal built Bambi was serial number 1601. No one starts with the number 0 when building anything. If 1600 was the first then 1610 would be the 11th. See his comment on the Ohio Bambi's. Number 125 would be the 126th with his counting formula.

New User here not the Bambi has been in the family since '78. Our Bambi's S/N is 162T488 so at least 488 by your estimate. It is "as found - complete" but needs updating and new subfloor. Thinking of PolyTec but worried about expansion in 120 degree heat here in Az. Thoughts?
