For decades, "Bambi" has been a nickname for Airstream trailers—ever since the legendary 1950s caravan traveling from Cape Town to Cairo, led by the company’s founder Wally Byam. He’d learned of a miniature deer revered by Angolan locals for its strength and sure-footedness; it was only natural that it became the trailer’s moniker. When Bambi was first released in 1961, it was revolutionary in design as a 16-foot, single-axle travel trailer.
Since then, the title has been applied to all of the brand’s single-axle travel trailers to denote their light, nimble size and enduring quality. Now, Bambi is getting its own family of travel trailers that officially launches June 6. Starting at $48,900, it will surely add fire to the van life movement.
