Argosy Body Panels

Is the lower front quarter panel on a 1973 Argosy 22 the same as an Airstream? Is it available?

I have some, but the shipping will make it uneconomic. Best to go to Inland RV.

Are the panels available from Airstream? Am I better off going through a local Airstream dealer?

Yes, the segments are available from Airstream, but you must physically be there in order to purchase it.

Local dealers, are not always in the "know" about sheet metal.

You can contact an Airstream parts stocking dealer, for the best price. Shipping most likely would be "drop shipping" from Airstream.

You can get those panels from any Airstream dealer. They will be unpainted, and coated. Remove the coating, and paint the panels to match the rest of the trailer.

My "local" AS dealer (next Province east) wanted $520 plus $350 to ship. That was before I came across about 50 of them.

Parts prices vary from dealer to dealer, along with shipping costs.

You will also need some Olympic rivets and a tube of Vulkem sealer. You might also check the prices on those items as well.

If you have a auto body restoration shop near you that has a English Wheel its a fairly easy panel to shape.

Anyone that owns an english wheel, and knows how to use it, is going to charge way more than the cost of a new panel.

I bet you could get the existing panel repaired by the body shop for a flat of beer and $50.

At most a couple of hours with a english wheel, its a easy panel to make.even at a $100 a hour it sounds reasonable.
