Ya, the screen guard is pretty cool. Now he has to make at least 74 more of them

Looking forward to hearing the interview. Thanks for posting all those fantastic pictures. They really show all the detail and design that went into the anniversary Bambi. I like the tailored cushions and the portholes in the doors with that rich woodwork and metal trim. One really cool set-up with all the seating and maintaining convertable beds really gives a lot of room for lounging. Airstream has a dream of a unit in that one and David Winick really outdid himself!

Yeah Baby!

I echo Craftsman...that thing is SWEET!

I was just visiting with my grandpa today who has a '58 18 footer. I forget the name...Traveler or something like that. Anyway he had just contacted a new AS dealer in PA for the info on this new Bambi. He wanted to see what the floor plan was and see if he could redo his '58 like that (he bought it for cheap with the interior basically gutted and it'd sat in a field for 35 years). The aluminum is in amazing shape on his old trailer, not a dent on it, and it cleaned up nicely. The inside is gone though. If he decides to unload it, I'm going to lean hard on him for dibs Make a good supplement to my 31'.

Anyway, I like that Bambi. Especially the porthole doors. The bathroom door is too cool!

I love the retro Fifties interior with it's rich woods, curved Art Deco shapes and metal trim, yet updated for today, of course. Those porthole windows and Baby Moon hubcaps give it a nice touch. The gaucho/bed with the pivotable flat screen TV will provide a cozy place to lounge for entertainment. Lots of drawers give adequate storage. The kitchen is larger than the standard Bambi since the vanity is omitted. And the deep kitchen sink is great. My only regret is that the 3 CuFt fridge doesn't have a roof vent like the Fifties models and will require the noisy fan to dissipate the heat. All in all, a super warm and cozy living space.

Is there even a small chance that the Custom screen gaurd will be offered as a part? I would love to add one to my trailer if at all possible.

75th Annniversary LE: Answers and Thanks

I'm thanking all for the great reception of this trailer. It was a fun project and I think that is reflected in the outcome.

Wanted to answer a couple of questions:
First is about the circular "porthole" in the entry door. This is a custom piece of glass. Had to have a very slight curve to fit door and will not be available as an accessory [to my knowledge]

For those of you who are interested in purchasing a door-guard:

The door-guard will be available in the Airstream store. They should have them in stock in 2 weeks. It will fit all Airstream trailers with a separate screen door. You will need to contact Airstream's store for the pricing and availablity.

Regards
David W.

Now for my question...how am I going to explain to my husband how much money the forum saves us when I keep finding new ways to spend it right here?
