Nice Little Rig!

Wardster,
That one looks like a 'keeper'! It appears to be in nice condition, both inside and out.
'Just curious: did you locate your Argosy at a dealer or get it from a private party?
Congrats, and enjoy it!

Looks like a real nice unit. Interior looks very homey. I like it.

Thanks for the kind words. My better 3/4 father had it up in DC. parked behind his house for 10+ years. He is the original owner. He decided to give it to us if we hauled it away so we jumped on it!!
We need to replace the cushions, replace some plumbing, fix a leak or two, have the propane lines checked and replace the dump valves, you open the cap on the holding tank and everything comes pouring out on it's own. Good thing we have yet to use the potty!
We are delighted with her and hope to get her back to original shape in a few years.

I envy you. There is something special about the painted Argosys that really catches the eye. I saw one in town yesterday and almost followed it to get a better look.

Congratulations!

Nice Minuet you have there, Wardster.

We have been looking for quite some time and as fate would have it believe we have found the one we have been searching for just as the dough-re-mi rolled in. We will probably make a deal on a 1979 Argosy Minuet 7.3 Meter tomorrow.

My search was pretty much centered on the Minuet series although I also love all Airstreams.

Hope to have pics soon!

Scott

Pros & Cons to owning an Argosy vs. A/S....

Cons:
1) You can't polish the exterior aluminum to a brilliant, mirror-like shine.

Pros:
1) You don't need to polish the exterior aluminum to a brilliant, mirror-like shine.


Kewl trailer dude!

Wardster - Isn't it amazing how these trailers just put a smile on your face. We too have an Argosy. 1978, 6.7 Metre Minuet and we can't get enough of her!! Yours is the first I have seen that has the green interior (looks just so 70's!!) Ours is the gold and we are trying to work around it - ya know what i mean. Hope to see some more pics as you start the fun. Later, Leigh
