Gutting a '74 Argosy?

Guys/gals I am new to the forum so sorry if this isn't in the correct location. I have a 26ft 74 Argosy that I have used as a hunting camp for 7 years. When I bought it I redid as much as possible but it's time to do it right. My 1st step is going to be rip out all the interior except for walls of course and deck which is still good. I am curious as to what obstacles or tips you may have when taking all this apart. Nothing is good enough to keep its not rotten just broke or rusted badly. Photos from others experience would help. Thanks

This thread is for info on how the internet forum works... there's an Argosy section and an interior restoration section (with lots of more-specific subthreads) that would be more appropriate for the questions, and likely get more and better responses.

In that Argosy section, there's a recent thread by TG Twinkie on their renovated interior here.

Howdy and welcome to Airforums.com, Scott!

You'll find lots of great information and advice on your Argosy here!

Be sure to post some photos of your trailer, here or in the Photo Gallery, OK?

ps: I deleted your other post as it was a duplicate of your first one. It might be a good idea to take a look at the Community Rules. You can find a link to them at the bottom of most pages here in the Forums.

Welcome.
Might be more beneficial to you to post photos for US. Then we can see what you need to do and explain. What I found with ours was that I was unsure of what to ask! But as soon as I started tearing into it, I used the search function extensively to answer many of my questions then asked for clarification on the forum.

Good luck and keep us informed of how you are getting on.

Thanks for the tips. My desktop is in the shop so I'm navigating the forums by iPhone and it's a bit of a pain. Thanks again

ID:	164254 The interior photos are from about 5 years ago so they look better than it actually is. Most of the wood is broken and stove is all rusted from bleach cleaning. Plans are not to put her on the road again but make her nice to spend the weekends in.
