Airstream Launches Euro Bambi

Posted In: Airstream, Blog, Camping Abroad

The Bambi is arguably the most widely admired Airstream model ever built.

From a design standpoint, it secured its claim to fame by becoming a featured display in New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). It’s sleek, it’s round, it’s pleasing to the eye. It’s just so darn … cute.

 

Do RVs get any cuter?

From a camping standpoint, the Bambi’s pluses and minuses all relate to its size.

On the plus side, you can probably tow a Bambi with a bicycle. They are the lightest trailers that Airstream makes, so you needn’t worry about buying a gargantuan big rig truck to enjoy the thing. And they include just about every crucial amenity an RV’er needs.

 

Somehoe, they squeeze an entire house into about 10 square feet.

The down side? Hey, it’s a pretty small space. You probably wouldn’t want to fulltime in a Bambi. But for weekend trips, tailgating, and all around fun, the Bambi is tough to beat!

When Kristy and I first began RV shopping, we considered picking up a vintage Bambi. At the time, we were looking at RVs for the purpose of simple weekend trips. Of course, we eventualy chose something larger to accomodate our more ambitious plans, but I can appreciate the appeal of the Bambi.

Airstream has launched a new Bambi model in Europe, the Bambi 422 (apparently Europeans like numbers). Airstream makes special models for European use, to best navigate the more narrow roads of the Continent. The Euro models are also lighter in weight, to better accomodate those cute little European tow vehicles.

Who knows, perhaps one day Kristy and I will hit the European highways towing one of those sleek European Airstreams. It would be a fun and natural extension of our overseas camping adventures.

I’m happy to report that our return from Argentina went without a hitch. It took me several days to bounce back (I must be getting old!), but I’m now rested and ready to work on TheLongLongHoneymoon.com. Stay tuned for fresh video of a distinctly Argentine flavor.
