Maybe we can start keeping track of the (dubious) honor of having the oldest of whatever model we have. First of that model year, last of that model year, first of a new model, etc. It might be fun, just as a trivia question around a campfire, who has the oldest and of what.

My Base Camp is #9 off the line. Certainly a dubious honor if there was one...

1972 20' # 252


I have the original warranty and manual showing the original owners names at another location. I'll update this thread if anyone is interested

btw, there is a new paint job. See if you can pick it out from the Fall Vintage Camper Rally photos at Misty River Resort and Campgrounds. Here's a link:

Owner's manuals were available, service manuals were not. The closest service manual I could find for our '72 was a '74 Airstream service manual.

I'm confused; how do I have a 73 with a V in the title and others have 72's with the same designation?

A motor home has an engine, steering wheel etc. I think that this discussion thread is generally about travel trailers.

The "V" stands for Versailles, Ohio, assembly plant. Most Argosy travel trailers of the 1970's, and all Argosy motor homes, were constructed there, along with some of the original Airstream motor homes. There are some later 1970's model Argosy trailers built in California, their serial numbers contain an "S" instead of "V".
Also, since Argosy trailers began production in 1972, and Argosy motor homes didn't start until 1974, "oldest Argosy" by definition would be a trailer.
