Your 2016 Airstream Bambi can be lifted depending on the axle it has. If it has a #9 Torflex axle with a 2,000-lb capacity you would need Torflex Lift Kit # K71-723-01 and if it has a #10 Torflex axle with a 2,300 lb to 4,000 lb capacity you would use Torflex Lift Kit # K71-707-01; both of these kits will lift your trailer 2-5/8". Please note that these lift kits are not compatible with top-mounted torsion axles.

The other option for you is not technically a lift kit, but what is called an over/under conversion kit, which moves your trailer's leaf springs to the top of your axle and lifts your trailer approximately the same amount as your axle's diameter plus the height of the leaf spring pack. Also, please keep in mind this conversion kit is for use with double-eye springs only. If you had a 2-3/8" round axle you would need Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit # K71-384-00 or if you had a 3" round axle you would need Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit # K71-385-00.

I've added links to video reviews of each of these parts for you to take a look at.
