2013/2014 Bambi Sport 16' Sport Wrap Windows in back?

Do the 2013 or 2014 Bambi Sport '16 models have back wrap windows as an option? I have only seen the smaller window in the bedroom area (back) in any photos online.

Maureenchrist,

Only the International models have the rear curved glass in the rear much like the front.

The Bambi Sports all have the flat panel type window in the rear.

It was the moment the salesman told us that there were to be no more wrap around windows in the 16's that I had the opening I needed to convince my wife we had to purchase the last 2012 16 International available on the East coast!
We love those windows!

Wrap Around Windows

I think 2012 was the last year for the 16' International? I noticed AS does not sell that model anymore.

I e-mailed the factory today and they informed me they had no plans to do away with the wrap around front window on the 16' Sport due to the high demand for this particular AS model.

When I purchased my 2013 16' Sport the AS dealer said this was one of AS's most popular model. For me that and the new location of the bathroom door was the reason for me to purchase mine.

And of course I noticed the base price went up several hundred dollars on the 2014 with no changes to content.

Bought a 16' Sport last fall. Other than a very cheap ass microwave (it broke on first trip) it seems ok. Dealer is VERY slow to get parts and I'm only an hour from Jackson Center. Bambi was delivered with nail in one tire (I found it on the walk thru), very small rock hit to front and sloppy caulking on roof and bath. Dealer told me AS would send him a "fake" rivet to cover the small dent, I said no thanks. Dealer said all the AS models have sloppy caulking on the roof. Seems like that would add a small amount of extra drag and it just looks bad to me. Big blobs of excess caulking.

One hour from Jackson Center? Why not got to Jackson Center?
I plan on getting mine serviced at Jackson Center 12 hours away. The dealerships are 4-5 hours away. The one 4 hours away I won't do business with. The one 5 hours away wants me to leave my trailer. 10 hours to take it + 10 hours to go get it = 20 hours for driving and I don't have my trailer for 2 weeks or more. Jackson Center is a 24 hour round trip and I camp in the trailer every night. Service work is done while you are there in a day or so. The dealer never has the parts. They have to see what they need and order the parts. Jackson Center has the parts. I know other people with Monaco and Tiffin motor homes who only go to the factory for service. I don't know where the Monaco,factory is, but Tiffin is 4-5 hours away in Alabama. If I ever was to buy a fiberglass motor home I would buy a Tiffin, even though the $200,000-$300,000 motor homes are considered "entry" level. I guess I will always be a "starter"...

When I called my dealer inquiring about switching from my 16' International with panorama rear window to a 19' model, and he told me they were discontinuing the pano rear, that's when I decided this 16' is a keeper. The pano rear is one of the best features of the tiny trailer, especially with the bed located right under it.

agree with amm3824 on the panorama windows.
why don't you buy a used 16' DWR instead?
