The actual length of the bed in the '05 Bambi is 78". As I'm more than 6' tall, the advertised 75" length was a concern. But.....no problem!

This is really a great floorplan. Frank says we can't have one as our second trailer because if we're towing 23' we might as well take the 28. He's right -- sigh -- I guess I'm going to have to keep fantasizing about a 16, 19 or T@b.

It's ok to fantasize. I've found that fantasizing is the first step in the process to making something a reality (eventually)!

I bet it would either taste like plastic, or chicken.

I know Herbert Hoover promised "A chicken in every pot and an Airstream in every garage." But TWO Airstreams?!!! Why not?

The bed in the 23' Safari is indeed 48" wide, which makes the rear interior bed & bath design just like the 19' Bambi. This was confirmed by the AS home office.

Dang!!!!! If they would just make the beds bigger I would put this right up on my wish list, right below that 25 FB SE LS!!!! Especially if I could get the rear wrap around windows.

I know the bath is in the way, but could they make only half of a wrap around ??? that would be cool on the 19 and 23, but is there something structural that prevents it?

hi folks


while in jc last week i did indeed see 2 of the "new" 23s on the line. it is the same shell/platform as the 22. no the 22 is not being replaced but the 23 is a new floor plan using that shell. so like the 30/31 on the classic side.....where the bathroom layout and placement of the kitchen / dinette gives the distinct character to each model.

the 23 has an interesting floor plan and we all liked it......one was nearing the exit door so it was pretty complete. it did seem larger inside than the 22, that coming from the open floor plan like the safari se. those pics on the colonial site are not anything like the actual 23.....i'll have to go through the 100s of pics i took and see if i took some of it.

cheers all

I hope you have some pictures. That would be great! That was a terrible storm you went through too. Those pictures were awesome. Glad you're okay. That's the worst damage in a park I have seen. Pretty scarey stuff.

You know, a 25' is not much larger in length, a bit larger in width, has dual axles and a bit wider bed (by about 6"). If it were me, and I did, I'd consider the 25' as it is only about 800lbs heavier, but does have the potential to be significantly heavier depending on what you fill it up with....

I saw one at my local Airstream dealer on Saturday, while on a spy mission to check out some construction details.
It's like a smaller version of a Safari 25, goucho front, galley center, curbside bed, streetside bath and head.
The sink ( round) is monted in a round cabinet that sticks out from the galley, with rounded doors underneath. Nice design touch.
Otherwise the interior is much like the rest of the Safari line.
