The Bedford Bambi. A- small coach built 2-berth motor home. Although the Bambi is small it is often referred to as being "tardis" like being small looking on the outside but surprisingly roomy on the inside. it is also very well equipped, having all the usual Motor home fittings including : 2 way fridge, 2 burner gas ring hob, grill, 2 berths which can convert into a double and there is plenty of storage in both overhead and under bunk lockers , there are also 2 outside lockers for "wet gear" etc. Being easy to drive , cheap to insure and being in the cheaper road tax bracket, it appeals to all ages looking for a vehicle in which to "get away" from it all but not being to big for everyday use, indeed for many owners it is their only vehicle .
The little one litre engine is quite happy to purr along at 50mph and is not too bad on fuel, most owners report average fuel consumption to be about 28mpg, not as good as a diesel maybe but the Bambi is a fraction of the cost of newer motor homes to buy, so when you consider all the facts it is a good little vehicle to get you out on the open road and also being able to keep you warm and snug when you reach the campsite.

Why not visit their web site to find out more L you will find helpful hints tips and advice on both owning a Bambi and the club events etc.
