We recently finished the complete renovation of a 1962 Globetrotter. Luckily, it was in solid shape when we bought it in Oregon-- mostly clean shell, straight frame, intact interior. It took 5 months to make it new again. We redid all the systems and reinvented the design to make it distinctively retro-contemporary. Hope you enjoy!

Here it starts! Rennovation of our new to us 1976 Airstream Argosy 24'.

Pretty exhausted for now, but thought I'd post two links to our demo day one and two. First day was removing the subfloor (camera battery died not halfway) and then today was interior panel removal day.

Will try to post more about the progress soon.

My first blog. 1966 Safari originally twin. Now totally gutted. I have repaired frame where needed. Strengthened a couple of spots. Added a acouple extra supports where spans of support stretched too far. Installed a new axle. Bumped up for more clearance. And increased weight. Wire brushed and grinded off the frame. Treated with navel jelly, primed, painted.

Looking at coosa sub flooring. Searching for best fasteners.
Guess I need to put some specifics in my...
