A peddler ... yep ... that's what I have at my local dealer. I sincerely believe he intentionally gave me some bad information hoping to point me to the 2003 Bambi with no options and a minor dent in it that he is having trouble moving. He has it priced down to $ 24,195.00 if anyone's interested in a heldover Bambi without the upgrade package.

Another thing I noticed ... seems like every unit he's got has quite a bit of rust around the ball latch mechanism. Didn't really expect this on new units.

Also can't believe how flimsy they've made the fold-out step on the Bambi, Safari, and International models. I guess they're hoping this feature will point you to the Classic with it's nice double fold-out step.

Yep that single fold out was one of my pet peeves. I bought a nice folding step that gave me the second step I needed for Patty and her bad knee. New owners need to make sure they fill out their feedback card on their new units and let Airstream know. It won't change until enough of you raise some flack. I know I made it an issue on mine when I bought my Safari.

And yes that new double fold-out on my new Classic is wonderful.

I don't have any issue with the single step as that's all I've been used to even when we were kids with an SOB. I did see the dual step and wondered if the space is the same, if that might be installed after the fact.

Anyone know the measurements? If not, Roger and Jack will be there......I'm already going to swap out Roger's electric stabilizers for my manual ones...a dual step seems like a good addition...heck Roger....you have two right? Share the wealth buddy!

I spoke to Airstream about a retrofit when I was up at Jackson Center and they said that the opening on the Safari would not accomodate the Classic steps.
