Looky What I just bought...













Its a 76 Argosy 24'. With TWIN bunks!!

Everything that is working is:

All lights, even the "porch" light.
A/c is newer and works great.
Water heater comes on and lights up, don't know if it shuts off though.
Fridge, kinda.
Stove and oven work good.

Not Working:
Furnace,,Don't know anything about it, don't even know how to light it. Plus while I was cleaning I pulled all the duct work out.


These pics were from last week. I've done a lot of cleaning and added new water lines, Shower faucets and new lights through out.

1st post and thought I'd share.

One question....In the Airstream World is the Argosy look down upon as a step-child of sorts?

Just curious.

Shane

Some of us envy the cool white of the Argosy during a hot summer sun. I think the Argosy is more of a cousin than step child.

Congrats! Looks like our kitchen, same color and layout. Do you have the piece that goes in the oven handle? It can be fixed, if you do. I fixed ours, same problem. You will love your Argosy!

I ended up repainting the stove and threw it both end caps away. Now I'm looking for a 14.5" handle.

I'm still in the save my money and keep looking stage. To me, right now, The only difference between an Argosy and and Airstream is the color. I view one as raw metal and the other the painted version. I know that there are many more differences but to me they are sister ships.

You Coach looks AWESOME! You should be proud to own an Argosy, especially one in the condition that you have.

Good Luck and welcome to the forum!

Looks fantastic. Wife and I purchased a '78 27' with all things EXCEPT the furnace. That must have been one of the trailer's weaknesses. Good luck and hope to C you on the road. jjairstream@gmail.com (WA ST)

Welcome to the wonderful world of Argosys... we are on our second one and have redone both .. this last one was a COMPLETE from axles to paint to everything and every appliance... check out Costalotta from start to finish.... would not trade it for any newer one ...

Good luck. I looked for one for almost a year before I gave up. Now if I find one, it will all be wonderful. Maybe somebody on the forum has one on a stove they are getting rid of. (I already looked at Colaw's, however I didn't look into the possibility of them ordering one).

Mine is not classed as a minuet is it? What makes it a minuet? Mine does have a tandem axle but I read somewhere that they also come in minuet?
Can I say minuet one more time....? LOL

BTW, heres my Vin Nimber 24T6V1710.

So I gather:
24 foot
Twin
Manuf: 1976
Made Versallias
Number 1710

Manufactured 12-1975. That kinda shows how manywere made in 1975, HUH?
