Kim,
It is difficult to appreciate just how nice this new door arrangement is in the 16' until you stand in one but here are couple of pictures from Colonial Airstreams site....

The latter types will often ask us how much we paid for it. My attitude towards them is, compared to what? A big old 5th wheel or motor home?

National Park campgrounds are fun, though, because they seem to attract more people with imaginative small RVs: Casitas, those A-frame "chalets", the ubiquitous pop-ups, vintage VW vans, and of course, Bambi/Sports.

Bruce, thanks for those photos. I wondered what "the new door" could look like.

LOL...our last two day camping trip we gave four tours of our Bambi...a record in one day for us

We even had an older couple follow us in off of the freeway as we stopped for a bite to eat. They swerved in front of us and both hopped out of their car to greet us before we even had a chance to get out of ours. The man had told his wife that the next time they saw an Airstream Bambi he'd flag them down for her so she could look...we obliged, right there in the middle of an Arby's parking lot! They had no idea that they were still made and they lived in hour away from two different dealerships. I think I sold an Airstream that day!!

Thanks for the photo, Bruce...I was literally picturing a redesigned door, and for the life of me couldn't think what it would look like!! Now I see they've moved the door to open near the kitchen instead....maybe a bit more room to move about when the door is open now.

valmog, I had a similar experience once. We were at Airstream of Spokane for some servicing, with only Doug the mechanic on duty. A couple showed up interested in buying a little Sport, and we started chatting. With a delay before the owner could arrive to speak with them, I ended up touring the new unit with the wife, showing her where things were and how they worked; and answering questions like, "where could our dog sleep?" [under the bed if you don't use the furnace.]

Then we gave them a tour of our Bambi.

I hope they bought it!

Jeanne

Picking up new Sport

We finally picked up our new 2013 Sport over the week end. Our Jeep Liberty V6 towed the trailer like a dream.

When even drove on the toll road system I work for in Orange County since a portion of it includes a 6% grade. We we're able to keep a steady 50 mph with no problems.

We spent the rest of the week end loading and organizing and getting familiar with all the systems. We even introduced the trailer to our two rough coat Collies Jack and Rose. Jack claimed the bed (like in the Casita) and Rose was happy on the much needed larger floor space.

Looking forward to our first trip out with our new silver bullet.
