1961 Airstream Bambi 16 - Washington

A rare gem! The 16' Bambi model is hard to find as not many were made in this vintage. A full, shell off restoration has been completed and kept the original design. It has an all new interior, new awning, new plumbing and electrical components, and a few modern conveniences added like stabilizers and grey water tank . There is a bit of oxidation on the exterior but it previously had a mirror polish. This trailer is lightweight at1800lbs so it can be towed by almost any car, sleeps 2 to 3 people, and is easy to maneuver with the upgraded valet system.

Listed below are the highlights of the restoration but there is a lot more information I am happy to discuss with interested parties. Restoration was done by Silver Bullet Trailer in Vancouver, WA. I've included pictures of the finished product but can also supply photos during the restoration process to show the extent and quality of the work.
