Using parts from newer Airstreams (salvaged)

I'm in the middle of a complete remodel of a 1978 Argosy. I've found a local dealer of salvage rv parts, with a 2005 Airstream Classic.
Will that stuff fit my 40 yr old camper?

Body curves will also be different. Any boat carpenter can tell you it can be made to fit. Make patterns of the curves and adjust the parts until they fit.

It depends on what "that stuff" is. The appliances should work, the cabinetry might need some tweaking. Plumbing fixtures in general will fit, but the toilet likely will not be useful to you since the Minuet has a short toilet on a platform that just barely clears the built-in backrest. Even the current short toilets need a little modification to make fit in an original Argosy bathroom.
