Bambi Renovation

I have a Babmi trailer which I believe is a 1963 16' trailer. I want to completely restore the trailer. I want to gut it out and replace the floor as well. Are there any books on restoring a trailer that would be helpful? I have no idea how to get started. Any suggestions?

Welcome. This forum is likely to be the only reference you'll need. Just use the search feature, or post your questions in the various repairs and restoration sections.

SSanders, welcome aboard. The Airstream family is a great one. The forum is the place to be when you need ideas. I restored a 1963 Bambi last year. My thread is here.
I'd be glad to share any experience I had with my restoration. My first suggestion would be: 1. take lots and lots of pictures as you take her abart. Oh take lots of pictures. I took hundreds and still wish I'd taken more. 2. Find room to store all the parts you remove in the process. 3. Label everything with masking tape and numbers. 4. Most important take your time and enjoy the process. Our Bambi is now on the road and we have taken many trips. The trailer is way cool and we have enjoyed to no end.
