Hi Argosy People.
Here's a report on my 1972, 26' Argosy. I work a lot, so I only have Sundays to work on the trailer.
This will be a slow process, but I'm going to camp in it while I work, so that's a good thing. I finally got to take some stuff out of the Argosy. I was following the tail rot thread by HotPuppy, and I was worried about what I'd find when I pulled out the really, really gross carpet. However, it appears the rear end is looking good. I've included photos here. The previous owner said they never used the shower, so maybe I got lucky.
HOWEVER, there's some serious rot around the Dometic refrigerator. It's pretty weird. Someone taped the base of the refrigerator with silver tape.. looks like it's covering some serious rust around the base of the refrigerator. The only think I can think of is that the roof vent might have been left open at some point. I can't find any type of water staining on the ceiling, though. Please take a look at these pics and give me your thoughts. I have no idea whether or not the Dometic works. The Argosy was sitting for 10 years in a storage lot in El Paso, TX. At least it was dry!
