A Kiwi and an Argosy

Hi everyone

I just moved to Canada and am stoked to have got hold of a 1974 Argosy 22, named Huxley.

Brought it from a dealer, but they just dropped it off and left so been scouring the forums to find out how everything works! Luckily there is such a huge amount of information here!

Huck needs some TLC, but it's too cold here in Alberta right now. Moving to Vancouver at the beginning of March so hopefully I can get stuck into it then. Then hopefully ship it back to New Zealand when I leave - I know of 2 airstreams (of any kind) back home, so keen to add to the kiwi collection.
I renovated a gutted trailer back home last year, but it's going to be interesting doing it here with no tools/garage on hand.

I'd like to live in it while I'm in Vancouver, although not sure where I would be able to park it - found a few campgrounds but they are more expensive than renting a house!

Trying to post some photos but my computer is having a bit of a spaz so will try again soon.

Anyway thanks for all your info, and looking forward to my upcoming adventures with Huxley!

Welcome ! I've got a 1975 Argosy 26' that we got last fall, and we are about 20% done renovating it :-) We've got the interior out, interior panels out, and insulation removed. I'll be working on dropping the pan today.

Since I'm still a novice, I don't have tons of information to share yet, but I can tell you that I've found the rivet remover tool from Vintage Trailer supply to be super useful for removing the pop rivets in the interior:

Rivet Removal Tool

Also, this site is a wealth of information, and people are great about answering your questions, so post away!

We've got a family Bog at 5goforth where we'll be documenting our restoration and adventures.

I'll be posting more restoration entries on the blog, and here as the work progresses.

Good luck and happy renovating !
