VISTA WATCHING THE TRAILER For generations of travellers, explorers and those seeking a life far away from the norm, the classic Airstream ‘silver bullet’ travel trailer has been synonymous with the freedom of the open road. But if the traditional multiaxle Airstream seems daunting, help has been towed into view. The company has relaunched its Bambi model as a separate ‘diffusion line’ of compact, easy-to-tow trailers for the modern adventurer. The Bambi earned its cute name while on the celebrated 1959 Cape Town to Cairo caravan trip led by Airstream founder Wally Byam. While it may lack the larger dimensions of its super-siblings, it packs just as much ‘cool’ factor.

The Bambi may be small, but it’s perfect for big adventures.
