Just purchased '78 6 metre Minuet


I just thought I would drop a line to say I just purchased a '78 6 metre Minuet from VAN who has apparaently been posting on this forum for some time. I am pleased with my purchase as VAN was honest and upfront about everything. I bought essentially based on his description and photos he sent. I had been looking for a similar sized Airstream but was unable to find one in my price range or one that did not need a complete overhaul.

There are a number of cosmetic issues I will need to deal with in time, so I am sure I will be popping in from time to time for input/advice.

Anyway, glad to be here and I can't wait to start camping.

HI and welcome. Argosys are cool - although i might be prejudiced. We have informal get airstream togethers in the NW - be sure to check the forums occasionally. let us know how we can help your rehab. Van is a regular member - you'll probably see him from time to time.

Welcome to another Argosy owner. These are great trailers. I always thought I wanted a big silver Airstream; however, when I got one I realized I can't get past my first love, "The Twink" as I call my Argosy. I would love to have another one to work on, but I really don't need it. Congratualtions on a great decision for you.

Gergstuff & Van, Now both of you can bring your trailers to the Silver Falls rally so we can all see them in person. Darol

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your find. I keep my eyes out for a similar unit in the Midwest. We can pull it behind Chummy and let the kids use it at the camp grounds. They are a great find.
I wish you many happy safe years of camping fun.
