Looking for owners manual - Argosy 1976 26'

I just took ownership of a 26ft 1976 Argosy, my first RV. I believe its a great deal for $1500. Everything works just fine. Can anyone give me an idea where i can get an owner manual? Thanks in advance,

You can obtain a copy of the original 1976 Argosy manual directly from the Airstream store. The other option is to watch E-Bay as original owners' manuals are offered periodically on E-Bay. I am not aware of any service manuals being published for Argosy coaches, but a similar year Airstream service manual will provide valuable information in understanding your Argosy as the structures are quite comparable with the differences being in some of the interior cabinetry and a slightly lower level of standard equipment on the Argosy. The Airstream store also offers copies of service manuals as well.

Good luck with your coach!

I've got a pdf copy of a 1975 Argosy Manual. That's as close as I've been able to get.
