Buying a 1964 Bambi II

I'm very seriously thinking about purchasing a 64 Bambi II which seems to be in pretty good condition. I'm going to travel to look at it again today and check for denting. I'll be paying $8,000 for this and it needs some work and polished.. but ultimately I believe everything is sturdy and didn't notice any dents. Would this be a good price for this Airstream. If I ever decided to go bigger in a few years would this have a very good resale value?

Hi Jennifer, welcome to the forums! Check out this price vs condition guide for some ideas on value (be sure to read all the text). The Bambi II is a very desirable size, but resale can be affected by any modifications you make to the trailer. In addition to inspecting the skin for dents, also be sure to check the floor for rot, check the axle for wear, etc. Guidelines for inspecting trailers can be found by using the search tool. Good luck!

Welcom to the crowd. Really great people here to help and share with. Mel's advise is right on. Bambis are getting a little costly lately because of their great size and since your is a vintage it puts it in a whole new world. Do check as Mel says the value, if everything is solid, and all components work, electric, heater, frig etc., good tanks, frame, axle with NO dents or leaks in the skin it is an OK price. Of course you will need for the trailer to call out to you when you see it. Sort of like buying a puppy. Good luck and we look forward to hearing how you make out!
