Wow, Jim, that's a beauty. Looks like it has many many upgrades. I normally prefer the Argosy's to be anything but silver, but that is very nice.

Jim, that Argosy looks to have the same alloy wheels as my trailer. Very sharp!

Yep. That's pretty much what I would like to accomplish with my little trailer. Very nice.

When I first spotted it from a distance, I thought it was an Airstream, I really did, wheels, LP tank cover, banana wrap dark gray etc.

In our travels, I have seen many painted Airstreams and Argosys, but this was far above the rest.

It did have a California plate. Could get lucky and see it there again this year. If I do, I'll leave a note and perhaps get inside.

Welcome elsinite

When I was first introduced to the ARGOSY...from a distance. Not knowing much about travel trailers I asked..."what is an A-GRON-SKI? Did not see the R. That is now a standing joke among our Airstream/Argosy friends.

We recently had the pleasure of viewing an Argosy painted a beautiful dark green color. I understand it once belonged to a person connected with the magazine Airstream Life. The most beautiful Argosy.

ah .. you saw Minstrel Blue. (Vintage Thunder I believe Airstream Life called the project) A very nice trailer indeed.
