1975 Argosy (1295)

*I would like to find some of the history of my 1975 Argosy 24' Center Twin. (24TV51295)

*Since someone took the time to strip the paint and make it look like an Airstream...I thought there might be a shot they might have been on this website previously looking for information.

*I bought my trailer in Triune TN. When I bought it, it was stripped of the interior and it had been setup on the outside to duplicate an Airstream.

*The title that came with the trailer was from Missouri and titled by that owner 01/02/04, so it was probably purchased prior to 2004. I'm sure theirs a story as to how it arrived in TN from Missouri.

From the 1st year...1972

November 1972 #783
Just picked it up today.
Found on craigslist for a song.
24T3V0783
Very little time to play with before I had to leave for work...dang sure is fun exploring a 'new' camper to see what all was like in the 70s...and how things work.
Everything does work, as it has new AC, Fridge, Water Heater, toilet...the oven and heater are not new, but they work fine.
Not sure of direction, but thinking about making it match the MH.

Thanks, we are amazed at the soundness of the 1972 after almost 40 years.

Roadmaster ....yes...but lets keep it a secret.
You can see my 2nd 1996 Roadmaster peaking out from behind the Argosy.

I went to pick it up in the Suburban, but must have bought some bad fuel, as 10 miles after filling up, it stopped dead at atraffic light.
Nursed it back home, and decided to try the wagon.

I have a busted front curved glass, and have been searching for the story of someone that did a Lexan replacement...I plan to do also, even if cannot find, but would like to read his story again...anyone know?

It looks pretty straight. Are the steps there, or are they missing? Center twins? Since it needs a paint job, something similar to your MoHo might be cool. Will you be updating the tail light area?
BTW, you have a 1973, not a '72.

Yeah...got to do something with the tail lights, he gave me the old ones, but since I'm free to be creative...some LEDs for sure.

Step is there, folded up in photos, but is only one, should there be two steps ?

Center twins...yes.

I can't resist thinking about it behind the Airstream MH as a matching pair...already playing in photo shop with this idea.

Have not opened the awning yet, but I'm sure it will need changing.

The second step was an option, so if it isn't there, it's not necessarily missing. If all the mechanical parts are working on the awning, the fabric can be easily replaced. Thos taillight binnacles were made from ABS, and tended to crumble to dust after a few years. At least you'll have a blank canvas for replacing them. LEDs are good, and if you're adventurous you can try a set made for the later model trailers. The castings are expensive new, but there's always places like Colaw's for used ones.

I think this thread was interesting, because we just purchased a 1972 26' Argosy with the serial # 2672v0002. We were wondering if this is the 2nd one off the line, and if we should keep it completely original for collector value.
We wanted one that we could costomize, but the inside just seems like it hasn't been used much, and we would hate to tear out all good stuff if that would lower it's value.
Any body know if someone could held determine if it is more valuable with this number?

Welcome to the forums.

Yours looks like it is indeed #2 off the line, though I don't know if number 2 would be worth more than others. If it's pretty much original, and in good useable shape, it may be worth more if left alone. But, if everything is worn out and broken, then you would want to start making decisions about whether it would be worth more to you repaired or restored.

2nd Argosy off the line should look prety nasty, but it's still very nice. Thanks, overlander63, for your answer so quikly. Everything looks great with nothing wore out except the window and door ruber seals. Today I will start looking at the hidden utility lines for leaks before I try any apliances. Then we should be able to make the decision to sell it original or gut it and make the intierior with the "Arts and Craft" style that my wife would like to see. Purchasing a pregutted trailer sounds like a beter idea now. Thanks again. Dan

So this thread got me to thinking about starting a data base for argosy vins. i'm going to start a new thread though so that the title reads as such and so new owners will find it easier to go with their info.


here's the thread I put it in
