But when Charlie MacVicar, 26, and her partner Luke Walker, 27, decided to move in together, they knew they couldn’t relax in a place which forced huge financial obligations on them. So the couple started looking for alternatives. Since Charlie’s dad owned land in Essex, United Kingdom, where she and Luke could’ve lived on, they considered multiple ideas on how to make use of it, but eventually got themselves a double-decker bus to have more space. “We love to travel and wanted a hub that we could return home to and then leave again and have a lot of flexibility,” Charlie told Bored Panda. “We loved the TV show George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces and [our project] was inspired by some of the builds on the show. Over the next year, Charlie and Luke worked hard on making their dream a reality, and with some help from their closest people, it turned out just the way they wanted.

Exploring the differences, similarities, and things to ask as you’re shopping for a Bambi 16RB, 19CB, 20FB, or 22FB travel trailer.

Exploring the Bambi Inside Out: Floor Plans and Features

The Bambi is the quintessential Airstream model — fun, sleek, timeless, and it carries a 90-year history of excellence on a single axle. While originally earning its namesake in Africa during the famous Cape Town to Cairo caravan in the early 1960’s, the Bambi continues to prove mile after mile that its strength and sure-footedness not only gave it its original name, but provides a way of life for those who travel with it across the globe today.

Seven patent-pending, VisionVenture-style features in all give the iSmove about as much comfort, space and style as you can squeeze into a light, compact motorhome that's the same length as some camper vans. Hymer emphasized last year that it wasn't pursuing a production VisionVenture camper van but would be trickling some of the concept's features into production. We assumed that to mean "Hymer" production, but as the premium motorhome brand of the Erwin Hymer Group, Niesmann + Bischoff makes an even more logical launch point.
