Argosy VIN Database

I thought it would be great to start a database for our Argosy's. I've compiled this info from a different thread and included what was posted. If you want me to add your trailer to the list let me know. The list is first sorted by size, then by year and lastly by sequence.

and here is what the layout letter means:
A=Center bath
D=Double bed
R=Rear Door
T=Twin bed

Plant:
S=Cerritos, California
V=Versailles, Ohio

Okay, I have you both.

Tom you're our first 22', well at least of those that have 'checked in'.

This is going to be so cool to be able to see how many Argosy's, that are on the forum at least, that are out there and the differences in them. I started reading every post from the very first thread (on like page 20) and have been reading forward in time. i'm currently on page 13 and there are a lot of argosy peeps...hopefully we can get them all to check in to compile an awesome list of info on our AS model.

Argosy VIN Database

1978 Argosy Minuet 6.0 Metre

20D8V1666

Front lounge with composite aluminum floors and acrylic side windows; both endcaps are galvanized steel.

Something else to consider in the database -- there are a few first generation Argosy travel trailers out there with an S in the plant of manufacture rather than the typical V . . . while it hasn't been confirmed by any "in-the-know" sources, it is believed that at least a few of the first generation Argosy travel trailers were built in the Cerritos California assembly plant resulting in the S designation rather than the V for Versailles, Ohio.

Kevin

P.S.: I am surprised that none of the "S" plant manufactured Argosy trailers have replied . . . there have been at least two found by Forums members in the past year.

Good to see your post! I just wish that someone "in-the-know" could confirm the true meaning of the "S" in the plant of manufacture position. Using the "typical" meaning of the "S" in an Airstream VIN the "S" in all probability represent manufacture in the California plant often referred to as "Cerritos".

I know that Ohio and California plants were listed in the Argosy sales literature at least through 1978.

Kevin

P.S.: Hopefully some of the other "S" code Argosy travel trailer owners will respond. It will be interesting to see if there are any other relationships revealed by those VIN numbers.

It looks like they were built in Cerritos but kept the Santa Fe Springs designation. It would be interesting to see if there are any "C" or ? designations.

After establishing the 1755 North Main Street factory in Los Angeles, Airstream expanded into east of the Mississippi by opening a plant in Jackson Center, Ohio in July 1952. Later that year, a second Southern California plant was opened up in Norwalk at 12804 E. Firestone Blvd. This later became the Santa Fe Springs plant in 1958 when borders of the two towns were realigned as Southern California grew. The North Main St. factory was closed in 1960. The Santa Fe Springs plant was closed to make way for the I-5 freeway expansion in 1968 at the end of the model year and after the 15949 Piuma Ave. Cerritos factory was opened in December 1967. The Cerritos factory was shuttered and all operations centered in Jackson Center, Ohio in 1979. It is because of these many factory overlaps you see different styles of the same model and within the same model year.
