2007 75th Anniversary Bambi

Hi all...
This is my first post and I am looking for some feedback. I have been researching used Bambis for a while and am interested in the 2007 75th Anniversary Bambi. What is a fair price for this trailer? How difficult are these to find? I just love the design, and I think it will be perfect for 2 and 2 dogs.
Thanks.

I would re-think that size, we have a 28' with 2 and 2 dogs and its just about right, I would not look at anything smaller than 25' for 2 and 2, unless you and the other 1 are really close and like your dogs closer.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

First off, welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us.

As to your questions, I assume your are referring to the Special Edition 19' Bambi that was produced to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Airstream Company. Just 75 of these units were made, and I believe that they were all 2006 model year trailers.

They were pretty pricey, and weren't exactly hot sellers. I have been in a couple on dealers lots over the past few years. I particularly like the custom flooring, the porthole window in the door, and the baby moon hubcaps.

There were still a couple of these new at dealers as recently as a year or so ago.

There is a listing at WBCCI.org site for a 2006 Bambi. That one probably is not the Winick designer Airstream???

I would suggest doing a google search and looking here and all classifieds and EBay to see what the asking price is for the various units in different parts of the country.

Colonial Airstream has a lot of great pictures and even some video of the Airstreams. Scroll down and there are Bambis of every size and trim and year. The advertised price should have room for negotiation. They have a 2000 Bambi for 21,000 something too.

Colonial Airstream - Airstream, Airstreams, Winnebago Itasca, Travel*Trailer, Motor Home Class B, Class C, 5th Wheel - Preowned Inventory

2006 - 19' AIRSTREAM BAMBI 75TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION, trailer has been used for only one trip, has less than 1,000 mi. and is like new. Shower and black water tank have never been used. Pictures available. $29,000. Ph. 425-572-5338, Email jandlfaris@comcast.net (Renton, Washington).

Happy hunting.

What Bob says about size is good to consider too. Actually spend alot of time in a Bambi going through the camping motions. Many people trade up for larger Airstreams right away. Bambis are cute as a button but buttons aren't very big. There may come a time when you crave comfort over style and you find that a slightly larger unit still has both facets covered. A gently used model will keep more of its value than a new one.

I love the Bambi also, especially that special commemorative model. That being said, I'm afraid that I have to agree that it would be a bit tight for two adult humans and two dogs.

If your travel plans include only short term use (two or three days at a time), it might be doable. Corner beds are not real conducive to extended use. The addition of multiple canines would enhance the drama. But, to each their own.

Good luck in your search.

Brian

Found one...

Thanks for all of your help and I appreciate your foresight on the size factor. That being said, my boyfriend and I are still in love with the Bambi. We are so used to car camping, and this is obviously a huge step up.
I found a 75th Anniversary in WA. They are asking 35,995. Is this negotiable? It is a repo, and I assume they paid no more than 30. Any thoughts?

the 19 footer works fine for my wife and I..
We were in it for 8 days last month (first trip) and both agree, it's like a cozy cabin in the woods..
We had some pretty cool weather so we were inside more than I thought we would be. I'm almost 6'6" and my wife if 5'7".. I guess we like to be close together or something.
we both snore pretty bad, so a couple of nights I dropped the table down and stretched out there.
So far, we have found 19' to be pleanty of room.
We don't take our two setters with us though. They would not like being that cooped up..

Jeff

EVERY TRAILER BUILT IN 2006 is a "75th anniversary" unit.

THAT plaque was taped to EVERY trailer, in every size/model that year...

this issue confused LOTS of folks, from day ONE...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f224...ion-19730.html

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f400...mbi-26459.html

there is NOTHING special about it. in fact the anniversary badge can be purchased and stuck on any trailer..

i've got 2 of them (black and blue versions)

and they were actually stuck on 06s and 07s...

the "75th custom" designed by david winick is really the SPECIAL EDITION, with only 75 built.

______________________

price is almost always negotiable. buying is a contact sport, r u UP to it ???

we know nothing about HOW u plan to use it, how often, length of trips, SIZE of dogs and so on, so size recommendations aren't specific.

bambis are cute.

they are the gateway drug into 'streamin.

and seem to change hands quickly and OFTEN, as folks figure out they need MORE space or water or carry capacity, or axles or...

do NOT jump at the first unit u find, many are available and prices ALL over the place...

except for the CUSTOM 75th which really is a limited production model...

cheers

Thanks!

I looked at the 75th anniversary model, and it was in very poor condition. BUT...while driving home, I passed a dealership and they had a 2008 Bambi that was the perfect trailer and price.
We used it last weekend and found that the size, capacities, etc. worked very well for us. Thanks for your help. I am sure that I will be posting more questions, as we make the transition from tent camping to Airstreamin'.

Excellent!! We just made the transition from pop-up to airstream, I think you will find it even more positive. Congratulations!

Saw your post re 75th Bambi. I have one for sale, in perfect condition. All accessories, very little use, stored inside, never smoked in, etc. Let me know if you're still looking. Located in WA state. Can send full pix if you're interested.
