1974 Argosy 26

Hello from Boulder County Colorado


Our family of 3 just bought our first trailer and decided to do it right by investing in an Airstream the first time. We purchased a 26 foot 1973 or 4 Argosy (I give the'73/'74 year because the manufacture date is 9-1973 but the model number shows it to be a 1974).

We are currently keeping it on a friend's farm near Boulder, CO. We would love to meet up with anyone in the area- let me know if you are.

One of the reasons we would love to meet others is because, over the next couple of months, we're planning to make any renovations we find needing done before moving into it full-time.

I'm sure we've got an adventure ahead and we're thrilled for it. If anyone has wit or wisdom you'd like to share, we would love to learn from the experience of others as opposed to floundering through the mistakes on our own.

Thanks for welcoming us into such a warm and encouraging community.

Jeremy and Amanda

Welcome from another Longmonter!

The "DenCo" unit of WBCCI is your local unit. I recommend you join; there are a lot of vintage owners in the group, with a lot of knowledge about maintaining and restoring older trailers.

Dont be afraid to flounder through the mistakes on our own. Full timing in a travel trailer is a learning experience like no other. Congrats on the purchase

Hi! We are a young family from Denver. No kids yet. We are full timers and renovating our Classic. The in-laws live in Longmont so we should meet up sometime. Currently we are on a road trip in FL but will be back the end of August.

You can tell if your Argosy is a '74. If so it will have a grey water tank. There will be a dump valve handle for the grey water just behind the street side rear tire.
We live just 8 miles east of Torrington, WY. We own a '74 Argosy 26' coach.
I have done significant upgrades to our trailer. You are welcome to come by and have a look.
I also have many photos of the work done. If you would like to see them contact me thru a private message and I will send you my email address.
I know the workings of this model Argosy inside and out so feel free to ask questions.
You are welcome to tow your trailer here. We can go thru things in detail.
