What Kinds of Bambi Airstream Trailer Can You Buy?
All of the Bambi Airstream trailers are relatively small, single-axle options for lightweight traveling, but there is considerable variation in what is available. There are four lengths to choose from, and each has a distinct standard floor plan.
The 16-foot Bambi is the smallest of the lot – and it costs the least as well, at a base price of $59,300. It can sleep four people comfortably and, despite its size, it still has a built-in dinette and wet bathroom.
If you’re looking for something super lightweight and maneuverable, this is probably your best bet.
Starting at $62,600, the 19-foot option gives you a little bit more room to move around in. It still sleeps four, but the layout allows for extra bathroom space and a more spacious interior.
If you’re looking for more kitchen and dining space, the 20-foot Bambi is a great option. Starting at $65,900, this slightly longer model still sleeps four, but with a roomier kitchen, dining area, and bathroom than the 19-foot trailer.
The largest Bambi trailer that you can buy is the 22-foot model. It is also the most expensive, and you can expect to pay at least $69,200 for one. It comes with a larger master bed than the other trailers – and a full bathroom.
Who Makes Bambi Airstream Trailers?
The Bambi series of trailers are made by Airstream, one of the most iconic travel trailer companies in the world. Airstream as a company began its life in 1929 when founder Wally Byam constructed a tent contraption to attach to a Model T chassis.
He found the tent difficult to put together, so he designed a teardrop-shaped permanent shelter instead, which would eventually evolve into the Airstream trailers we know today.
Byam opened the first Airstream factory in California in 1937 and soon established the futuristic metallic aesthetic that has made these trailers so iconic.
Today, most Airstream trailers are made at a relatively new 750,000 square-foot plant in Jackson Center, Ohio.
