It took us awhile to find our Bambi! Lost out on a couple but all were a long distance from home. We got lucky and found one in Williamsburg VA (1200 miles away) and negotiated over the phone. Once a deal was set I found a volunteer inspector willing to go check everything out and he gave it a big thumbs up (only used 3 times) so we set up a time we would both be at the banks and I paid for it and the bank sent the title. It was a month before I went to go get it but I felt very good about the owner etc. You have to be careful dealing out of town but the volunteer inspector helps a great deal. It will take some time but you will find the perfect Bambi! If you need help, just ask. We all love to look at trailers!

Here is the first picture when I finally got there and the PO Art and Shirley. Wow over two years ago! How time flys when your having fun.

I see a couple mentioned the scams that are out there. I played along with a couple of them--come to find out, they were the same--that advertised a 2008 Bambi 19' for a rediculas price of under $2300. Just as the posting warn, they use about the same story of hudband/wife/child died the offer to send trailer, free, to your address. These 2 wanted it to take place under Yahoo finances (they don't have such a thing). The're a bunch ofem ouit there, so be careful. I have seen several nice ones on e-bay, such as mine, that was well worth the money. Good luck, my friend.

Get an Inspection

Hey! We are Newbies, too. Just bought our 2009 22 Sport in Jan. Make sure you get an inspection!! Especially the roof. We knew it needed resealing when we bought it but did not realize the skylight was trash! Apparently they are not put on very well at the factory. We are having to replace the skylight with a much better one which is made by a company in the Dallas area. My hubby got the info from this forum and when he called the skylight company they told him they had approached Airstream to make decent skylights and were told "not interested". Well, live and learn. Glad this forum is here!!

Ok I have a lead on a used 2005 Bambi close by going to look at it on Saturday. I have received great advice to date so will look at the flooring, ask about the brakes, hitch components. So how or where do you get an independent inspection? Do you leave a deposit and tow the unit to your mechanic, have the seller drive it to a mechanic you choose, and is there a checklist that they should run through? Any other words of advice are of course welcome.

Thanks
Engie the newbie

Thank you the check list greatly appreciated, the unit was awesome, owner needs to decide if he truly wants to sell an unadvertised AS.

Thanks

Looking forward to visiting the Arizona AS gathering this weekend. Should offer opportunity for us newbies to see many models and decors to help on our search.
