Not sure what I have.

My wife has this Argosy and we're not sure exactly what we have. The VIN on the title is 1ABGAJL28JJ200900. I'm trying to attach a picture. The trailer is in really good condition. All systems work. What do you think we should ask for this trailer if we were to sell it?

Thank you.

Looks like an 80's Argosy to me.

Well! I could drive down this weekend and take it off the property for you. At my own expense of course! I think it looks like a Squarestream (Argosy version). I don't know if Argosy trailers were still built in the 80's. Someone else may have the ID info you need but your title should tell you the year and model. Look in the Forums tab above and scroll down to Argosy trailers. Perhaps you can find one there that matches what you have. Good Luck and Happy Trails, Ed

See post #4 from one of your other threads:http://www.airforums.com/forums/f349...now-54696.html.

The answer is still the same as it has been in the other four threads. Basic Markiting 101, "It is worth what someone will pay." The only way to really find out what it is worth is to sell it. Consider an auction with a reserve. I agree that $3,000 is probably low. With a reserve you have the option to not sell if you feel that you are being lowballed or to lift it if you get a bid that is close enough for you to live with.

You could also put an ad in the Classifieds section here. It would not be an auction, though. It is a good way to contact potential buyers who are interested in what you have. I found my Excella in the Classifieds.

Best of luck.

per this link: http://service.airstream.com/files/l...f90c6c0639.pdf

1AB = Argosy TT
GAJL2 = Type/Series/Body Type
8 = "check digit"
J = 1988
J = mfg at Jackson Center
200900 = sequential serial number

According to the serial numbers given here: Airstream, Inc :: 80s
it seems to match with the 1989 serial numbers

Just So you know, I own a 1984 sovereign 25 ft center bath, rear double.. Now, after researching a little, Airstream does not show a 25 foot sovereign being manufactured.. Only in 1985???
