OK, I've scanned the 1975 Argosy manual (such as it is.) I started out doing bitonal TIFF files which are great for the text and diagrams, but looks awful when there's a photo. Then I figured out that 100dpi full-color jpgs are still very readable, work well for the photo pages and provide a much smaller file. I didn't go back and re-scan the pages I had done as TIFF that didn't have photos, it just wasn't worth the time.

The zip containing all the images is 17 meg, I can provide it to anyone who PMs me their email address with a request for it. I skipped 6 pages that just have dealer and service center listings from 1975, I didn't really think those were important.

I bought a copy of the owners manual for my 1976 Argosy on disk from Vintage Literature Reproductions. I think it cost around $20.

Joey,

You should already have a copy in your inbox. Now take some pictures of your new toy and share!

Hi, we just purchased our 1976 Argosy and it does not have an owners manual. This whole restoration thing is new to us and we want to take it step by step, so we don't mess anything up. The Airstream is in pretty good condition, but there are some things that may need replacing. If anyone knows how we could get a hold of the manual or a copy of it, it would be much appreciated. The stove/ oven is working, but the refrigerator is not cooling. Everything is original and we'd like to learn how to fix instead of replace. Thank you for any help in getting these documents.

You can buy scanned copies on ebay and direct from Airstream.
I would be interested to know how much folks would be willing to pay for an original good condition manual for their year? Call it market research.

The owner's manual really won't help you much with restoration/repair work.

I purchased the Airstream service manual for my year (no Argosy service manuals are available that I know of) and it's been useful in understanding the basic setup of things, though of course you have to take into account minor Argosy differences.
