So, we have gutted the entire interior and have removed the rear floor where water damage caused the wood to rot. We are going to have to do some frame work on the rear as well since she is badly rusted (GRRRRRR!). After we strip her of paint and seal all the potential leaks, she is getting a complete vinyl wrap with our magazine logo (I know some people are throwing up right now).
Her interior, now devoid of bathroom fixtured and plumbing will feature contemporary styling. We will still keep the original kitchen sink and stove, but the stove will go where the fridge was, and the replacement (electric only) fridge will be moved to the opposite wall. A twin bed will be placed in the rear where the bathroom was, and a custom made curved couch will wrap around the front to create the lounge. The LCD HDTV and surround sound will come later. I will update you guys with photos as the transformation unfolds.

Funny, it's been a month since your post about gutting your Argosy and customizing it they way you want it and you got nothing but crickets in response.

I'll break the silence by saying I can't wait to see what you accomplish with your Argosy. I have a '73 20' that is far less than perfect, too. I'm trying to decide what I want it to look like when I'm done. My dad has several vintage Airstreams and he's all about keeping them original. I agree with this approach with his nice Airstreams. However, I think a less-than-perfect Argosy is the ideal "Airstream" to customize without concern for keeping it original.

Please, keep us posted on your progress. We all know what a restored-to-stock trailer is going to look like when it's done. A custom project like yours is really exciting since your imagination and hard work will decide the outcome.
