Need 1961 Ohio Bambi dimensions!

I have one, but it isn't here, so I can't measure it! Can anyone help? I need to know the length (total), height and width so I can figure out if it will fit into our garage before I clean all the junk out of it.

Thanks!

I had a '61 Ohio Bambi for several years, but don't have it now... but even if someone does come up with those dimensions for you, recognize that yours may not actually be the same, particularly in height. First, there's the A/C-no A/C option issue. An A/C unit will raise the height nearly a foot. Second is the degree of axle rubber decay. An old, worn out axle will let the coach ride as much as 3" lower than a new axle, which would also affect height.

Frankly, IIRC, the interior height of the Bambi was about 6'4", so that puts the exterior over-all height (without AC), with tires on well over 7 feet tall... if yours is a standard-clearance garage door, it's doubtful it will fit.

If height is a problem, and it has to go in the garage, you may be able to sneak the trailer in by removing the air from the tires, or even removing the tires completely. If it is worth the trouble. You'll probably gain about 6 inches by doing this. The trailer is less than 17 feet long, and less than 7 feet, 8 inches wide.

Thanks everyone - I measured the garage and the airstream absolutely will not fit, which is a bummer, but at least I don't have to clean it!

Don't have an airstream dealership in the area, and looking to replace the axle on a '63 Bambi.

Does anybody have the wheel well to wheel well measurement ?
