Newbie Questions -- any help is appreciated!

I am considering getting a small trailer, but am very new to the world of Airstreams. I am thinking of trying to find a Bambi or Bambi II. Does anyone know what the water system is like in these smaller trailer models? Is there a water tank? If so, what is a typical capacity for the fresh water tank? Do Bambis have plumbing for a kitchen sink unit? Do these trailers come outfitted with a water intake system so that you can pump water in from an outside source? Also, on a side note, do all Bambi's have electrical hookups, so that you can hookup to a nearby power source? I know that these are all very basic questions, but as I said, I am very new to the Airstream world. Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hey there, my 1960 18' Traveler, albeit not a Bambi, I am sure is similar. It came equiped with a 25 gal water tank, toilet and Kitchen sink as well as hook up for shore power and water. There was no 12V water pump (it came with a bicycle pump and valve stem on the water tank fill for pressurizing the system and bowing out the lines I added a 12V system. The black water tank is only about 6 gal and the "grey water holding" was pretty much just what the pipes from the Kitchen sink to the black tank could hold. I replaced sections of the grey pipes with 4" to maximize grey holding and minimize the amount of space holding tanks take up. Have fun on your search!

I am thinking of getting a 1960s Bambi. Not completely sure on the year, but I definitely am looking for a vintage model. Thanks.

This may help 1961,1962,1963 and 1964 Bambi. Take a look and see what you like. Bambi's are hard to come by. Good luck
