1976 Argosy 26

We have a 1976 Argosy 26 #26 T 6V2485 it was first purchased in Michigan in July 1976. We are the 5th owners and I rescued it from sitting under some pine trees down here in far southern Arizona about 8 years ago, I paid very little for it as it was pretty neglected. It was mainly just dirty as all the systems worked, air, heater, fridge, water system, radio just about everything worked. I just did a LOT of cleaning and put on new tires and battery. We have used it for 5 or 6 years and were going to buy a new Airstream, my wife decided we should just renovate the Argosy so that is what we did. After a lot of money for new pex water lines, water heater, paint and numerous other parts the old Argosy looks GREAT we had it painted to match our Dodge 2500 4X4 and it really looks good going down the highway. Maybe someday a new Airstream will be in our future but for now the Argosy 26 works just fine.

Uh oh...Boliversr it looks like we have a problem...your vin is the same one that I currently show for NYNick52. Did you buy it from him?

I've gone back looking for Nynick52's original post but I can't find it. Please double check your # to verify it and if anyone else finds nynick's post (:P) please double check for me. Thanks.

UPDATED (except for boliversr vin)

1977 Argosy 28

I recently acquired 28A7S5024; a 1977 28' Twin Bed Center Bath model. In researching the S/N I ran across more prima facie evidence that some Argosies were made in California. I found a 1977 Price Schedule (effective August 1, 1976) on Airstream's own website in their document archives. The header shows both Versailles, OH, and Cerritos, CA, as Argosy Manufacturing Co. locations. Moreover, Suggested Retail Prices are quoted as F.O.B. from Versailles or Cerritos. To me, this means that a new 1977 Argosy trailer (22' - 28') could be built and shipped from either plant.

Here's the link for the 1977 Argosy Price Schedule:

New owner of a 1978 argosy minuet 6.0 here

vin 20D8V1666

Overlander64, looks like you and I are "vin twins". Not sure how that happened. I spoke with Customer Service at Airstream and they didn't really have an answer either. Anyone ever run across this before?

I posted a picture of the vin plate on my member page if you want to check it out.

Looks like Argosy Rover's trailer rolled of the line with mine in hot pursuit. Consecutive #s 2297 his and 2298 mine.

Our second Trailer

We just bought our second Argosy. We weren't really looking for another, but it was found for us. The price was right and we couldn't leave it. So we now own a 1977 Argosy 28.

Hey 247stream, Thanks for keeping this list going, it is great to see more and more of these Argosys added to it.

I do have an update regarding my 1974 28' - it has gone to the great trailer park in the sky. It was VIN 28T4V0689. As we all should do when our time is up, it was an organ donor who helped 24T5V0251 and 28A7V1395 get back on the road to adventure.

The road goes on forever and the party never ends... Thks to REK
