75th Anniversary Bambi

I just purchased my 2007 Bambi a few months ago, and I've heard a little about the Winick model, and as far as I know mine is not one of those. It does have the 75th Anniversary badge on the side of the trailer and seems to have a lot of features which is great.

As someone else wrote about the CD changer, we haven't used that and probably won't since we can plug in an iPod into the radio, CD/DVD player. As for the rest of the speakers and woofer, we've enjoyed having that. The SONY screen is OK, have used it once, and I could see getting a newer, thinner, lighter and even a bit bigger screen.

I am having a bit of probably with the oven. The oven and stove have had minimal use. The guy I bought it from never used any of it other than to heat water for coffee, which is all we use it for as well. I've got a Coleman stove and BBQ and do all the serious cooking outside which makes it camping for us. I tried to get the oven fired up with no luck and I think it's probably me not the oven. It seems like I need to push in the knob to light the pilot, but no luck getting it to light, even with a direct flame from a long lighter. Is there some other trick to it or do I have a true mechanical problem?

Thanks,
Rye

David Winick 75th Anniversary Bambi Registry

Rye, I actually haven't tried lighting ours yet, but the previous owner said to:
Turn the knob to pilot
Push and hold the knob in,
Light the pilot light
Then turn it to the temp. It won't light right away, so maybe give it a moment

Separately, where is the jack to plug your iPod in to?

Yup as per Hudson Camp, turn to pilot and push in while at the same time reaching in with a long lighter to light the pilot in the back of the stove. Much easier with 2 people!

It can take a bit for the gas to make its way through the lines.

Ii would appreciate any help in coming to a fair price .
We had ours for sale with a buyer for $45K last year (we came to our sense and kept our Winker thankfully!). I see one listed in Maine for $52K right now. See 2007 Airstream International CCD 19 - Maine . Prices are creeping up there! That is for the David Winick version (port hole window), not a generic 75th year model.

turning on the oven

I found that it helps to first light a burner on the stove top to get the gas flowing in from the tanks.
- leave one burner burning while you light the oven, then you can turn it off.
- if its been a while since the oven was used it may take a while for the gas to get there and the pilot light to flare

- - and be sure your tanks are open!

Yes I had run the stove top to make sure gas was in the lines. Maybe I wasn't patient enough so I'll try again and wait a lot longer. Many of my attempts I thought the stove top ignighter would also light the oven pilot, while holding in the knob like most gas pilot flames. I checked to see if there was a spark after it wasn't lighting and didn't see one, so then I tried using the long style lighter with no luck.

With regards to plugging in my iPod, there is a plug in the front right of the JVC radio/CD/DVD player faceplate. It's pretty subtle until you see it.

Interesting. Mine is a Sony.

There is one listed in Maine above. Looks like it's in pretty good shape.

Could you be more specific?

I believe its the same one that slipped away from me. I was in the process of negotiating when a lady arrived with cash and the deal was gone. I was so close! Oh well...was not meant to be.
