dmac,

There is no current 16' Bambi for sale currently as an '03 that I am aware of unless it became avail in the past 8 hours. According to the brochure, the 16' International is somthing that's coming and is currently under development.

From the looks of it, the one on the website is the old 16' Bambi which is not an '03 model.

BTW, I emailed A/S about the Safari/International mixup and they fixed it within a few hours. I also mentioned that if they don't offer a 16' Bambi why do they have it pictured as "THE" Bambi on thier website? Not even a whisper from them though....but it looks like they made some changes (maybe based on my email...maybe not...)

Eric

International CCD

International CCD

19 "BAMBI"

Here are the floor plans.

Says its a 19' does not refer to it as a 16'

I looked at the link and it clearly says CCD 16'. The other for the Bambi is 19'.

Also, my current brochure has the 16' International under development. If it's avail, great, but as of this moment, I just got off the Airstream site and they have a Bambi on the main lineup page that is the old 16'. Anyone that knows the '03 Bambi knows that the outdoor hood vent is on the drivers side cause thats all that is avail in '03-- the 19' Bambi. Only the 16' had the same vent on the passenger side. I have a '02 brochure and an '03 brouchure and the one in main lineup picture on the website is the same as the 16' Bambi that they had avail in '02, not '03. It does not appear to be the International 16' that was "under deveolopment." After clicking on the Bambi on the main page trailer lineup it does bring up the right '03 Bambi that is 19'.

Regards,

Eric

The new site is super cool, it's just handy to have references like trailer weights etc. available when you're looking for the right coach weight for your tow vehicle. And also what ever other reference information that is now gone. Do you think that stuff will return?

Old photo needs changed

I noticed that the bedroom photo used for the International AS is a photo of the prototype and is quite different from the production unit. In the prototype, the side window is located much higher and the dresser, while attractive, is totally different from production.

I saw a 19" International at Shorewood RV last Sunday. I saw a 16" Bambi at Bates RV in December (must have been a left over 2002).

Another small omission

They should add the floorplan for the International AS with the couch option. I replaced my dinette with a couch and it was a great improvement to the trailer. I would recommend the couch option to all new buyers.

It's nice to see they are still including informations about older trailers, like weights in the FAQ page.

I did not see it on the first day. It looks like they have added stuff since my first visit.
That's why I had started to panic. Wiith the exception of "History", they did not have anything useful about older trailers.
It's nice to see that they are back in business, supporting every unit made.

new website and Bambi

I think the website is great! I'd like to see more pictures of the various models and floorplans though.

I noticed that they don't show a floorplan for the 16' Bambi, but they give specifications for it. Do you think they're planning to bring it back?

Not sure, but they seem to be building a 16' International.

It would be kind of neat if they could do what the car dealers do and custom build your own. What would be even more cool, is if you could build your own, price it out, buy it on the web and have it delivered to your door.

Corp. Competition??

In looking at the redesigned AS web site, I was stuck how they pan to have a forum Here

I for one would not want to see the information database that has been built here just be gone like other Corp. web sites, due to redesign or budget decisions.
