1999 AS Bambi 19" yes or no??help

We are looking at a 1999 Bambi for about $20,000. Is this worth the expense and I would appreciate any pros and cons. We have a F250 so the towing is no issue. What do we need to look for.

I would really like to help you, but could do a much better job if I knew more about your needs and wants - and more about the particular Bambi you are eyeing.

The truck? You are right, you can tow anything Airstream has built since 1999.

Spouse? Children? Pets? If the total is more than 4, you need at least a 25 footer to avoid going nuts within a year.

Type of camping? Want to boondock for weeks at a time. No room on the roof for more solar panels. See?

Now for the trailer. Get an inspector to help. Rotted floor, rusty frame, badly maintained... heck no! Lovingly and carefully cared for? Could well be worth 20k. Pictures please?
Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Used 1999 Airstream Bambi 19CB. Just traded in on a larger newer unit. Definitely has signs of use and wear, but then again we don't get many units in this price range. If you have been thinking of owning an Airstream but aren't even sure if you'd like using a travel trailer, this gives you a low cost option. This Airstream was owned by one of the Osmond musical family of Ogden, UT at one point, according to the folks who traded it in. Don't worry, the lime green cushions can be changed
