1961 Airstream Bambi 16 - Texas

Title: 1961 Airstream Bambi 16 - Texas
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

This vintage Airstream Bambi is a 1961 model, the inaugural year for the iconic 16 foot Airstream trailer and only 200 of the Bambi trailers were built that first year. In fact, this particular trailer was manufactured in Airstream, Inc's Santa Fe Springs, CA location in January of 1961 and is one of the first Bambi trailers ever manufactured in the limited production run of 1961! The exterior of the trailer has been recently polished to a mirror finish and has been fully restored and ready to travel on your next camping trip.

It has all working original fixtures including lighting, plumbing, toilet, stove and refrigerator. Restoration work on the trailer includes new glass windows, new wood floor, two (2) new tires, new vintage-style hubcaps, new running lights, a working brake system, a new exhaust vent fan with reversible airflow, temperature control and range addition. The 12 volt and propane systems work perfectly and the recently restored electric and plumbing utilize the original fixtures.

The vintage awning with poles are working as displayed and are a bit rusted adding to the authenticity of the trailer. A simple extension cord for 110 V will bring power to this beautiful trailer and the vintage appliances use 10 amps of electricity. This is an incredible find - especially for vintage Airstream enthusiasts.

Did You Know? In 1961, the Airstream Bambi trailer model received its name the same year as the famous Airstream African Caravan. When Airstream founder Wally Byam learned of a miniature deer revered by the Angolan locals, known for its strength and sure-footedness, it was only natural that it became the trailer’s namesake. The beloved creature was called O’Mbambi in the Umbundu dialect of the Bantu language.
