Hi Steve,

Welcome to the forums! 3 good places to look are:

Vintage Trailer Supply - Vintage travel trailer parts and supplies!

ODMRV , Out-of-Doors Mart

Inland RV Center - The Nations Leading Expert in Airstream Innovations

I've bought from all 3 companies, and service is great from all of them.

Also, you can do a Google search for "argosy" or "argosy parts" and probably find a few additional web sites.

Camping World RV Supplies, RV Accessories & RV Parts for Motorhomes, Campers, Travel Trailers & 5th Wheel Campers - fifth wheel camper - Camping World is another good web site for parts. Plus, there are dozens of other web sites that also have RV parts, but not necessarily argosy or airstream specific.

You can also buy some things at the Airstream Factory store at Jackson Center, in Ohio.

Also, check the Marine Supply stores online. They are starting to carry some nice LED 12 volt reading lights. Be warned, the cheap LED lights usually don't put out nearly as much light as a typical 12v reading light, so make sure you compare lumen output before you buy, as usual the good stuff always seems to cost more. Also, fluorescents are nice, but they are very dim in cold weather until the interior warms up, so keep that in mind.
