1978 Argosy 24 Project

Ok.. Brief history:

Bought Argosy in 2002, with the plans of using it on a weekend basis in N. Georgia Mtns.

Pulled Argosy to N.Georgia Mtns and left there for over a year, using it as i was able to get there.

Since I got married, I decided we would not be camping as much with so much going on at home, so i pulled my camper home, realizing i have a lot of work to do to it, to get her ship shape for later use.

I was going to sell her and got on this site, looking for values, however after reading so many wonderful posts and seeing the potential of some "sweat equity", i have decided to do a full resto/customization on this beauty.

Way i figure it, I have a 7 month old son, who will be wanting to go camping as he grows up, so i have a few years to work on things before we really get to going back at it full swing.

I will keep you guys posted as i figure out what i will be able to do, and when i will be able to do it. Here are the "Before" pics:

Restoration of Argosy

Hi and Welcome to the FORUMS.
Looks like you have a great trailer. I wish you well looking through the threads and asking questions. There is a wealth of knowledge on this site with people who have already encountered a repair that you may be contemplating. Remember, that if you wait til it is perfect, you may never go camping. So use it as you can, and let the memories begin. Take the kid camping. It's cheaper than the new X box Playstation games.
