I'm excited about joining up and attracting that one special little unit just for me and my SUV...deer are my favorite animal, so maybe a bambi will find me in Berkeley. I can't wait and will do my due diligence. Jodi

Is it true that the older single axle models are lighter weight than newer models? That's one thing that keeps coming up for me more than anything is economy and ease of the load for Artemis, my SUV. The other thing is...are bambi's and other smaller models so called 'self-contained' because I keep seeing no on that rating/specs. Does that mean no shower? Thank you guys for your support...muchly appreciated for a loner like I am at the moment. Jodi

Welcome to the forums and good luck on your quest.

It is true that older models are lighter than newer ones...by how much I am not certain. Our 06 19' Bambi Safari SE is 3500 lbs dry and 4500 lbs loaded.

I can't really speak for the older smaller Airstreams (no first hand experience there), but both the newer Bambi lengths (16' and 19') are self contained. The 16' has a wet bath...that is, the shower and the toilet share a space...the 19' has a separate shower. The 16' also has a single combined grey/black water holding tank while the 19' has separate black and grey water holding tanks. Hope this helps!

Welcome and good luck, Jodi. This website/forum is a wealth of information for both before and after you find your dream trailer. You will learn that Airstreamers are some of the finest people on the web and on the road.

Travel often.

Travel safe.

Bambi's are 16 footers and Safaris are usually around 22-24 (well, most are 23, actually)..we have a '69 23' and its perfect for a family of three to head out for three weeks...months...YEARS..... I just finished reading Dharma Bums and those wacky beats partying down in berzerkerly really had me on a west coast nostalgia trip....Gary Snyder (Japhy Ryder in the book) is one of my long-time heroes..

A newer 16' or 19' Bambi can be (1) a Safari (2) a Safari SE (up until 2009 when Safari SEs were re-branded as Flying Clouds and the regular Safari line was "transformed" to the Safari Sports models)... (3) an International CCDs, or (4) one of several 16' limited editions (16' DWR, 16' Quicksilver, etc). It's confusing.

Bambi Weight

Jodi:
You can go to: Airstream, Inc :: Home and if you look up International and look under floorplans, it will show you the layout of both the 16' and the 19' Bambi. These have been around for about 10 years. Some come in the Safari line or now called Flying Cloud. I find that if you look under the classified ads on the link in the toolbar at the top of every page, you will get a feel for the different models and the ages of those models. BTW the photo attached is a joke.

This photo may be a joke, but there is a photo of Wally Byam in Europe towing a late '50s or early '60s Airstream with a VW Beatle...we called them Doodle Bugs when I was growing up.
