Argosy 20

I just picked up a 197? Argosy 20, single axle. She was sitting in a field as a hunting cabin for the last 20 years. She is pretty complete, but missing the front area bed i guess. I plan on gutting it and will be selling off some of the parts I don't need or want (stove, fridge, etc) not sure what else yet. Basically what I do need is one of the curved front windows and the middle front window. any chance anyone can point me in the right direction? This trailer also has no title, so I gotta still figure that part out. I also need the rear plastic trim that holds the taillights in along with most of the roof vent covers... the one on the trailer are brittle and shot..

Welcome to the forum Joe.

The front curved windows are only available 'used' so you need to find someone parting out a unit. Typically a set of panos are in the order of $1K which each side at least $500, if you can find them.

I have a 1973 Argosy

Mine has a dinette that turns into a bed up front

If money is a concern…I might think about putting or leaving an aluminum panel where the window was. The curved windows are tough to darken when you want to sleep. ( which is mostly the only thing I do in mine besides showering and using the bathroom. none of which call for a bay window.)

I contacted Sherwin Williams for info on paint that worked on galvanized metal AND aluminum ( It was DM something ?? went on with a roller )

looking more closely……….

It looks like it has been hit ( thus the lack of windows and dinette up front, and the curved the wrong way wall ) The fresh water tank goes up front too., under the dinette

How/what are you going to use it for?

As mentioned above, the original clear Pano windows are not available other than used. I believe that the current dark glass windows do fit but would not match. All, used or new, are very expensive.

The plastic trim on the back tail light area is also unavailable. You could do something else with the tail lights and simply leave the trim off. I have found that LED boat trailer lights from Harbor Freight work and can look just fine.

You have a lot of work and money in front of you. Probably a more than you think now. Even title and papers can be a real hassle.

Well, the trailer was never hit. the earlier photo shows some "curling of the front panel the wrong direction, but that is because it was pulled out. STill need the two windows. and some knowledge of what to do with the electrical stuff in the back.. I plan on keeping the stove out of the trailer, I would never use it anyway. I would like to get water back into it in the form of a sink, and I may restore bathroom. The trailer will mostly be used for Summer Music Festivals, and fun weekends with the family. I hope to either get OE parts, or customize the inside for what suits us the best.
