Argosy trailers

I have two Argosy owner's manuals: one for '76 & one for '78. Here
are the following models/sizes:

1976 20'
22' (rear door)
24'
26' - 28'(rear bath)
28' (center bath)

1978 Six Metre Minuet
24'
27' - 30' (rear bath)
30' (center bath)

Apparently, our '78 Minuet is the only model in these two years that
has an actual model name.

Hope this helps. I'll keep looking around to find more on Argosys.

Thanks for your time.

Michael Willeford

John,

I'm not sure what to make of this post. Is this information I provided to help Andy generate an Argosy trailer section to this list or a request for further info or...?

I check here every couple of days to see if the information I gave Andy last March has been put on the list, and I found this???

Michael

Argosy trailers

I have reposted the info you gave me, apparently the original information that was posted cannot be retreived from cyberspace so we are starting over from scratch and Andy will add Argosy to the trailer forum, when that is done I will transfer this into the Argosy forum.

John

Michael,

I own a 1979 Argosy Minuet 6.0, and I've posted a few pictures of my trailer which shows the name "Argosy by Airstream" on each side of the trailer. I've recently had my rig painted and re-striped - the only thing left to do is to have the lettering done. I hope I can get it made as close to the orginal as possible.

I hope to see more Argosy's on this great site!

Jim

Jim,

Nice!

I really like your restoration job. When you get done repainting it, post some more photos. We would be interested in seeing how the exterior turns out as well. We bought our Minuet with the outside painted silver, but will eventually strip it down and repaint it close to the original color.

It's great to hear from other Minuet owners. There are still a few of us left!

Respectfully,

Michael

Talking New Argosy member

Hi! I just posted my 1st message earlier today in the chat forum to introduce us as the new owners of an Argosy 78. My husband is on his way to pick it up as I write this. We would be thrilled to have a forum just for Argosy trailers because we are new to this venture and looking for info. Looks like several people are on the same road to adventure! Anyway, I like having a place to find others who might be dealing with the same situations as we are, and look forward to checking this area often. Not sure it is set as a separate forum yet? Leigh

Argosy trailers

I started this thread so at least you can post about Argosy's here but there is no seperate forum yet.

Update 9/4/02; An argosy forum was added unfortunately it is in the Limited forum I will post when it is corrected.

John

Pro Argosy Trailer Forum

Well, I'm brand new to the forum, but I for one would love to see an Argosy trailer forum. My neighbor (just told him about the site - he's going to join too) has a '78 Minuet and we work together on projects, but I am sure there are more Argosy trailer owners out there; and we could all benefit from knowledge/ experience sharing.

Maybe it's the "new car" syndrome, but I have now seen three Argosy trailers on the road in the three months I have owned mine and two more siting in yards of houses while on the road.

They're out there!

Dear Co Argosy78,

Welcome to Airstreamforums.com. I'm happy to see you've joined the "BEST" Airstream/Argosy forum on the web. Personally, I don't see the need for a separate forum. We are all a part of the Airstream family. Argosy owners, in the past, have been excluded from the many benefits enjoyed by Airstream owners, including WBCCI membership. The last thing we want to do is separate ourselves now!

This site is extremely valuable to all of us, and it's fun!!!!!!!!!

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding Argosys. I would be more than happy to answer your questions, or at least try. We LOVE our little Argosy, and are very proud to be a part of the Airstream family.

Respectfully,

Michael & Holly

P.S. I know this is a little sappy, but it's true.

Sorry - wasn't me (I would wave) - haven't had her out yet (soon!). But I was out in Iowa and saw them on the road / in yards in western IL and Iowa (I-80/88) beg. of August. Didn't really keep track of where I was - just miles going bye.

Argosy models

The following was copied from the VAC list.

From: Charlie/Betty Burke <cbburke@velocitus.net>
Subject: Re: Argosy Models

The Argosy production run was in two groups. The more familiar round style was built from 1972 (as a 73 model) until 1979. Both a motorhome and travel trailer were built during this time under the Argosy name. There are some possible 80's models of the round style. The 1979 model year was the changeover year for the motorhome. That year Airstream built 3 versions, the last of the Argosy's, a painted Airstream and an Airstream "silver bullet".
The second run started as a 1986 model. It was the first of the square built
coaches. It was a metal skinned coach with a mustard and black color scheme. It was also built in 1987. In 1988 Airstream changed to a composite fiberglass wall construction, changed the color to gray and called it an "Airstream". Thus was born the infamous "Squarestream". The club at the time had a fit. After the 1989 model year Airstream changed the name to Landyacht and continued to build them into 1992. The 1988-89 time frame was also Airstream's first experiment with fifth wheels.

Charlie
