Hi,

Live in London, On. In our area there are two Argosy 24'ers I know of and ours is the only one that's moved for the past few years! We love it and have a 13' boler trailer as well.

I have a 1973 24' Argosy which is about 75% restored.
The curved windows are due in this week, then the new axles and paint.
I will be going full time the end of this year with my German Shepard.
I live in Round Rock, TX ( north of Austin, TX).

1975 26' Argosy.. new to us in early March this year

We recently purchased the above and just love the layout of the kitchen and the big wraparound window in the front. We have spent most of Easter w/e cleaning it up and washing the outside and checking systems. This trailer had not been used in 3 years the PO stated. My husband put a new power cord on today .. need new tires and shocks also.. putting a pergo floor in also .. trying to have all this done before our spring rally May long w/e Victoria Day . Will need a paint job but my hubby is a body man so that is a great plus.Annie.. we will be selling our Tradewind...

proud owners of new (to us) 1977 argosy

We are located in Puyallup, WA and would be interested in a camping get-together in the Washington - Oregon area.

Just discovered this web site today. We acquired our 1977 Argosy on April 12 for $2000 and are still in awe of it's many features.

I have been surfing the web for info. Our "twinkie" (as my sister calls it) is 28 feet with center bath (with sit-down shower) and bedroom with double bed in back. It has wrap around windows in the front AND in the back (bedroom). It also has the vista windows (per owner's manual) above the main windows (front and back).

It has original owner's manual and service manual.

Welcome! You'll find lots of good company here, many happy Argosy owners Also a number of folks in the NW. If you go to the thread

Pacific NW Forum Rally

You'll see where we've been trying to get together, and there's a little local get together in the gorge in May that looks like fun. In addition you're surrounded by several very active WBCCI (airstream club) units, and there's always rallys going on in OR, WA, and BC all summer long. I hope you have a chance to join us sometime.

Enjoy your new toy! It sounds like a real find!

Happy campers again! We will pick up our 1978, three owner Argosy 28' MH. in the morning. I persuaded (didn't really have to) my wife to let me trade her almost new V.W. bettle for this 36K mile orig. with only 7 actual hrs. on the gen-set. We paid a very well-commanded price, but with new tires, new air-bags, new water-heater and awnings, and narry a dent, we feel very grand indeed! the interior is almost like new, and there is virtually no rust. Please share our happiness! Now we can visit our children and grandkids in real style. Thyanks for having us with ya-all. Anthony and Mary Zarola Crossville Tennessee.

I have a 1973 20' Argosy, which should be back from restoration in a few
weeks. It's far from original now, but everything was starting to go bad.
I had a quilted stainless steel 50s diner style kitchen put in. New bluejean
cushions should be ready by Bluegrass season, and the pergo is waiting
to get laid down. I almost could have bought a new one. But I
rationalize my stupity by saying it is cheaper than a Ralpf Lauren.
I will live in New Jersey for a few more dollars. Then I am gonna camp in
your back yard and play mandolin all night long.
