You have a nice little trailer!

I love the little ones, but I found my plain old 1972 26' in Texas for a price no one could resist . Too many people see it sitting at our business property and want to buy it. I haven't even painted it yet. It is absolutely not for sale; I tell them. I love it so much. You will have sooo much fun with that trailer.

Hey Sprouty,
I just acquired a '72 20' Argosy. It's been gutted but it has most of the original interior pieces with it. There is new insulation and new subfloor but they did nothing with plumbing and electrical and chucked tanks without putting in new ones. I know I will want to put in pex and a grey water tank....I have been looking for schematics for both plumbing and electrical but have yet to find anything? Have you ever run across either?

The market trend towards smaller campers is also pretty much true with ANY vintage camper trailer brand today. The smaller/shorter/lighter the camper the more desirable and therefore valuable they are.

With vehicle offerings (Tow Vehicle) from the OEM manufacturer's becoming smaller, more fuel efficient, Boomer's no longer the target market for the RV industry and the trend nationally towards smaller more efficient forms of living it only makes sense that the 20 foot Argosy trailers are becoming more and more desirable and therefore more Valuable.

Vintage Airstream/Argosy trailers are not the only brand benefiting from this real market trend towards smaller well designed campers. All one has to do is go and look at the new offerings from the RV industry to see that overall smaller, lighter, cheaper more efficient designed campers are the future of the RV industry.

I believe that when the Boomer's die off a 31 foot Airstream/Argosy trailer will be a "Dinosaur" due to the size and tow vehicle needs that nobody will want em therefore value wise just might need to be "Free to Good Home" for their heirs to get rid of it!
