DWinick Retro Bambi Production

At the Minneapolis RV & Camping show last weekend, the local Airstream dealer did have a gentleman on site wearing a corporate name tag. I asked some informed questions and he said they'd be putting the Winick model on the line in March with maybe the first ones off by the end of that month. The quota has been set at 75 copies.

All Quicksilver Bambi production is now closed -- sold or still in dealers' hands.

75th Anniversary Model Pictures

Hi Guys

Just read the posts regarding the 75th Anniversary Model.
I'm David Winick, the designer of the unit. Thought I'd add a link to my website as Airstream has not posted anything official on their website.
Thanks a heck of a lot for all the kind words. Really appreciate it.

David

75th

David,

Thanks so much for posting the link to your site. You have done a masterful job at re-creating the vintage decor and feel in the new 19'. It is so warm and inviting....makes me want to run to my dealer and lay down my $5000 and trade in my 19CCD!! I wish I hadn't seen it!!!!

David,

I'd be very tempted if you ever did a 25' or 28' model. The 19' is gorgeous, just too small for us.

David,

As others have stated here, you've created a true masterpiece with this trailer. i love the look of the floor and cushion fabrics. Will you post a materials list at some point?

I just had to clean up the drool off of the keyboard after looking at those pictures!! David, you have hit a home run!

One question, did you use any weight saving materials in the creating of that beautiful interior, or is it all REAL wood?

David, Hope your going to be allowed take this thing further. Airstream desperately need your help in the interior design department. Your design is the best thing that's come out of the factory. It seems to combine the best of the old and new, and has a warmth thats lacking in the other models. Congratulations, I think that you really nailed it. Now.... I'll take one in a 30' or 34'. I just wonder if the the crew at Airstream can do justice to the build quality of the prototype

Wow! Is that a soft doohickey to keep you from bumping your head on the door opening? 14 years in these things and still I sometimes forget to duck.

Yes. I've use the one in my Bambi a few times. I suspect all current day 'streams have them.

David, thats a great looking trailer. We all like it because it looks like what we are trying to do to our old trailers.
I've been looking for those round porthole windows everywhere but can only find them in England. Are they custom or can you tell us where to find them in the U.S.
Thanks, Doug
