Bike Rack for Bambi
 
Just bought new 16' Bambi and am having bumper installed and Airstream bike rack installed on bumper. Has anyone put a bike rack on a Bambi?
Thanks.

Congratulations on the new Airstream, you're gonna love it!

The Sport Bambi is not among the Airstreams recommend for use of the bike rack by Airstream.

Probably because the frame is lighter than the other models. The risk would be separation of the frame from the shell on uneven roadways, a very difficult repair. Common on some older Airstream models.

I don't think it would be worth the risk. There are other ways to bring the bikes along, we put them in the pickup bed, others on top of the car.

A neighbor just bought a 19' Bambi from an Airstream dealer and had a bike rack installed. Looked like the ones I've seen in pictures. Perhaps they're putting the racks on more models now?

I installed a Fiamma (Airstream) bike rack on my International 19 today. Unless you have frame rails that extend to the bumper you won't have lower attachment points.

I have a Bambi CCD and have a different, cheap solution. I took a 2x4' slid it between my stove and the bench on the floor so that it runs parallel with my dining table. Then I bought a fork brace for 18 dollars for the bike and just secure the bike without its front wheel for the ride. When I stop I stick the wood with the brace on it under my Bambi. I was worried about the number separation and too cheap to spend the money anyway. My solution works great and you can still get around the bikes if you have to.

Firemouse - Do you have any pictures? Looking for a solution for my 16' Sport.

Here's the solution on our SOB - can't see why it wouldn't work for you:
