Welcome to the Forums and the world of Vintage Argosy ownership!

The woman he got it from was the widow of the original owner and unfortunately does not know where owners manual is. I was wondering if anyone could help me with finding one or one of a similar year because I know nothing about campers and would like to see just how much of it is in working condition after sitting all these years.
Your coach is from the last year of the first generation of Argosy travel trailers (1972-1979). The Argosy 30 was available with two basic floorplans -- rear bath with either center twins or center double -- mid-bath with rear twins or rear double bed. The rear bedroom coach was also equipped with both front and rear deep-wrap wing windows flanking the center operable window.
It isn't uncommon to need to replace drapes and window treatments on a Vintage coach. There are at least three sources for replacment window treatments. Secretarial Services as Janet mentioned in her post is likely your best source for a copy of the owners' manual; however, I have not heard whether they have Argosy manuals. If Secretarial Services is unable to provide a manual, they do appear from time to time on E-Bay -- an original manual on E-Bay generally sells for between $30 and $75 depending upon condition. The appliances in your coach are of manufacturers common to nearly all RVs so it is often possible to get manuals for individual appliances from their manufacturer.
Good luck with your coach!
