Can somebody kindly point me to whatever equipment diagrams and user manuals are available for the '63 Bambi?
I understand Airstream did not issue a true service manual for the '61-'63 Bambis, but perhaps others have documented much of it since.
I found the number below for ordering material via the mail, but was hoping to find it in html or pdf form which I could download ASAP.
I'm probably going to get a lecture for not finding this on the site by searching, but I've made some effort and haven't found much, and time is tight, as the Bambi needs to roll Saturday, and we want to get as many utilities as possible working before then.
Any help anyone can provide would be MOST APPRECIATED.
Everything worked on the Bambi when my Dad died 27 years ago in 1980, but it's been just sitting since. (You can see some images of the outside, which already looks better, by clicking on "Goldtimer" and "view Goldtimer's gallery" in the left sidebar. The inside has a solid floor and is generally OK except for somewhat dirty mattressses. My Dad also got creative with the wiring, marking plugs 12v
and 110V, so that might be a challenge.)
I did find this, and will try calling today, as even a 1964 manual should help.
Q: I need an owners and service manual for my Airstream. Where can I get one?
The first owners manuals were published in 1964
. Prior to that, the owner received a brown envelope containing parts lists and other helpful information on the accessories in his trailer. The VAC has started making these available in the Members Archive section. A service manual with instructions for performing service operations did not exist until 1972.
You can get photocopies of owners manual (1964+) and service manuals (1972-1986) from:
