Smile Argosy

I might have something you could be interested in. We have a 28' Argosy that is almost finished. New tile, new mattresses, new Gouch padding and cover, new curtains. replaced the ref with elec ref and microwave. We are looking for a permanant lot in Fl. So we might use it for the lot or we might buy one with a unit already on the lot. If what we buy has an airstream already there then we will be selling the 28' Argosy. We will be keeping the 24' Argosy to use closer to home. If anyone has any ideas for us to look in Fl at least half way down please let us know.

Looks like we will be driving up to look at the trailer sometime this week. Wanted to go tomorrow, but daughter's gymnastics is holding us up. Hmph. Will keep y'all updated as to whether or not I become an Argosy owner!

Oh, stillcove- let me know what happens with the Argosy as it develops. I may, or may not, have found one to call mine up in Winston so I could be interested if it falls through. Not sure about a 28'. Here I was thinking that I hadn't planned on a 26' either...!

I paid around $1800.00 for my 1975 Argosy 24 (In reality 20'). Plus registration and license plates, full coverage insurance costs me $13.00 a month with State Farm on a S.F. estimated replacement cost of $5500.00.

The prices are estimates, I cant remember the exact costs without looking them up.

It had no interior except for the bathroom, which took about a $100.00 to get back to functional condition.

The exterior was already stripped down to the aluminum so paint wasn't an issue outside. I repainted the interior for about $50.00.

Aftermarket, carpet, new interior lights, aftermarket cabinets, couch, etc has run me another $800 - $1000.00. I reallly want original interior, but original cabinets are hard to come by. (apparently)

A new inverter/converter and Gell battery was around $200.00. (ebay)

4 new Bias-Ply tires set me back around $300.00.

Brake away switch, $14.00.

Replacement 2 burner cooktop $47.00 plus shipping.

New Water heater, depends on ebay prices. They vary greatly in price. I currently have an electric water heater.....but if you don't have 50 amp service at the park, your trailer may not run an electric water heater. Although if it will, the water heater can do double duty as your fresh water storage.

New Roof AC/Wth heat strip, new one on ebay..again prices vary from time to time $500.00.

Heading up to take a look in about 30 minutes! Keep your fingers crossed it looks as good in person, and she'll come down to my level on the price!
