Hi C Ray:
Your Bambi sounds like it was made at the Los Angeles factory, which in 1962
used the channel type bumper pictured on the 1964
Bambi II on all trailers that did not
have the International trim. Your Bambi is not an International trim level trailer, which is why it has the channel type rear bumper.
The Ohio factory, by contrast, used the roll-formed bumper shown in Richard's picture on all trailer models in 1962
. The different factories used different bumpers on many model trailers, hence the different bumpers seen in many (but not all) photos. Make a new bumper, or find a nice used one, to match the type now on your trailers. Hope this helps.
