Derek Gardner

Good morning. New member here...recently purchased an 1975 Argosy 22' in astonashingly good condition. I believe it spent most of its life as a 'booking office' for a local eco tour company (in Campbell River - upper Vancouver Island/B.C. Canada) Carpet's need some touch up but the upholstery/foam is in good condition. I know have the furnace/fridge/stovetop propane units all functioning, the microwave works, the int/ext lights all AOK, now it's the cold/hot water system then trailer brakes.

Looking forward to picking various people brains regarding sliding doors that bind and some refinishing hints.

Thanks for being there!

Greetings from North Vancouver, Derek! You're in a beautiful part of the Province. I travel over to the West side of the island quite regularly to the family cottage in Ucluelet, but have taken the motorbike up your way on a couple of occassions. Again, welcome to the forum!
