To Have or Have Not (Anymore)?

In preparation for summer-long touring, in a few years, we're considering replacing our 1977 Argosy 28 (rear bath, twin bed configuration) with something larger and with more storage. We're also considering modifications to the Argosy (e.g., replacing the jack-knife couch with a dinette, replacing the book-case and fold-down table with cabinets). I'd appreciate opinions on whether the long-term value would be higher in original (good) condition or with tastefully done modifications. It is unlikely we can match the interior material but the wood would be stained to match.

Also, I've reviewed posts on values and I'll do some research, but if someone has opinions on this I'd appreciate that feedback as well. Thanks all.

The center double option had much more storage. Why not try to find a mid-70's Airstream or Argosy with center double, and convert your trailer? Your Argosy 28 is the equivalent of a 29' Ambassador. That should open more options for you. I know there are, or were, some complete, or nearly so, interiors in the classifieds here on the forum.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
