This trailer is in great shape for it's age, not Pristine but plenty good enough to camp in from time to time while I fix it up. I know I am going to need a lot of advice for this project and I hope some of you out there will be able to help me out. I'm sure I'll need all the help I can get. So, thanks in advance and I'll be posting soon.
The twenty-four foot trailers are a popular size in both Argosy and Airstream flavors and I am sure that you will find your coach to be quite enjoyable. I might make one suggestion . . . if your Argosy doesn't have a rock guard on the front window, it is a wise investment. The front panoramic windows were pioneered in the first generation Argosy travel trailers (1972-1979), and the clear glass panels utilized in the deep-wrap wing windows on the side are no longe available outside of a salvage yard. You can find new replacements today, but they will be the solar gray tinted units utilized in the current Airstream trailers. Our Argosy coaches utilize the same three-piece rock guard as the narrow body Airstreams (the center section must be narrowed about 8" for Argosy Minuet coaches). The three-piece rock guard may seem quite costly, but it represents the approximate cost of one replacement wing window.
Good luck with your Argosy!
