Argosy on Tuscaloosa Craigslist

I have been looking for Airstreams and I found this one that is not a bad deal. It needs some work and has some interior damage but pretty solid overall. I think it is a 1972 24 footer. It is more than I want to take on but it looks like it is not too trashed. It has some dents on the front lower quarter panels but I think the interior is decent. He sent me some more photos of it. It is in Tuscaloosa, AL. It might be a good trailer for someone.

It might have been through the Big May tornado!

We all went through the tornadoes. It missed our house but others were not so lucky.

I guess it was April. My son lost his house--he is a student at University of Alabama. It was a sad day. We spent 4 days getting his things out. But the volunteers and helpers were great! He lived in the shadow of a big Baptist church which saved his life. The steeple went through his truck. He and his roommates were in the basement and were praying their last prayer. I wonder what that prayer was for a bunch of guys that probably seldom prayed since going away to school? So we brought him home to Missouri. I am from Joplin. So guess what happened next? Yep--tornado in Joplin. All family was ok but couldn't find my sister for a while. Family friends were hurt, one killed. Another sad day. I learned from Tuscaloosa to get down there and help. So the next day, I loaded my truck with trash bags, boxes, water and headed down. Heard some fascinating stories--everyone wants to tell their story. Both towns look so different now but out of the rubble will come great things!

I am glad your family was ok. Good luck with rebuilding. It is starting to look normal in Hunstville again. For a while there were tree trunks all over the place.
