I too looked at several new Airstreams a few weeks ago. I'm affraid our concerns were not just limited to the Bambi's. A couple of their top end classics left a lot to be desired in the fit and finish department. I won't get into all that here as I have already voiced my opinions elsewhere on this forum and the AS forum. Sounds like we have some of the same ideas when it comes to redoing an older unit. I to am into the classic cars having just finished a 3 year resto on a 68 Z/28 thats been in the family (not mine) since the car was a year old. If you have time you can see it at, Z/28
, good luck with a vintage!
