We found a great deal on a used (dealer trade in) 2015 Bambi 22 sport.

Thanks for the good wishes.

Can anyone tell us what the skinny antennae is at the top front of the trailer roof? It's about 1 foot tall.

Radio antenna

I think the one foot one is for your AM, FM radio.

Isn't it nice to own an Airstream? Now you get to start doing things to it, for it and with it!

Oh, but you already know that.....four rivets....
Happy trails and Good Luck

Congrats! You have been looking for a while I know. I am sure you will love it. Those are very nice units with some pretty unique twists in them I like.

Please give a long rundown of likes and dislikes as well as factory goofs that need addressing and areas you think they really did particularly well. I love these trailers more than any other, but the factory gets complacent in areas that are going to cost them in my opinion. You pay for perfection, you deserve something better than "good enough".

Thanks for all of the good wishes.

We were not expecting to buy at this time. We had looked at units over the last year or so and had determined that the 22 was what we would eventually want to buy. We saw this come up at a dealer in our area and it actually was sold in 4 hours the day before July 4th weekend.

Well, apparently that buyer after further review decided on a larger unit, so the unit came back up for sale on Monday. The salesperson was doing call-backs to his list of previous prospects, and called up my husband to see if we were interested.

We hemmed and hawed a bit, and decided to tighten up the budget in a few other areas to make room for the Airstream.

Had a bit of a scramble finding a storage space in 2 days. (Our homeowners HOA doesn't allow storage at the house.) Let me say that if you are looking for a business to invest in, I would say that offsite storage must be a good one. We called close to a dozen places to find a spot available.

We were very pleased by Bill Thomas Camper Sales in St. Louis metro. They were very professional, knowledgable, and instructed us newbies very well on set up, towing, brakes, backing, and we did not have any issues on the way home. Everything was cleaned, set up and ready when we got there for our appointment.

Our unit was only originally new in November 2014, so it is very new-only 9 months old. It had the power jack and segment protectors installed as well.

We are now working on getting all of the items assembled that we need for camping. As the heat index here is supposed to be over 100 today, we are hopeful that it will cool down in a couple of weeks to the high 80s so we can do a local overnight.

Since we will be working for the next 15 years or so, this will help us deal with the day to day stress as our Escape Hatch.

We call her The Puuu-py. Since she is little and followed us home.

(Any Parks and Recs fans will understand the way you pronounce that. Google Parks and Rec puppy to hear it!)

I'm sure that I will have a lot of questions in the next few days, weeks, and months. So thanks in advance for all of the help. I felt very prepared for the walk through after all I had learned here at the forums.

Congrats on the purchase! I'm in Olathe so it looks like we're almost neighbors!

Did you find enclosed storage or are you parking it in an open lot storage facility? I found an underground facility and while it's a little more expensive than outdoors, I feel a whole lot more comfortable with it secured underground away from the elements (and people!)

Piggy Bank,
I'm thrilled to read you brought home a "Puppy". I do love the name. Congratulations! Now you have a place to put that Airstream trousseau you've been collecting!
