Just bought my first Airstream!
My wife and I had been looking for a vintage motorhome for a while, and found one we liked! We bought a 1977 Airstream Argosy (24 foot) last night. We are very excited! It appeared to be in great shape and was clean thoughout. Original Engine was the only scare point, but I figured I was in for the long haul, and willing to rebuild it if needed, but it drove nice on the freeway! Any Advice as to what to do? Everything works on it, and he gave a good demo of the ins and outs. I plan to take it to a Motorhome repair place, and have them inspect it. I live in Sacramento, CA. We plan to keep it vintage as we can.
1. Anyone own the same model that towes anything? We don't have anything to tow, but I'm curious if it can? Previous owner never towed anything, other than a small box attached to the hitch for extra storage.
2. This Rig did not have anything for self leveling. Do you know if it can be added on?
3. Any known issues with this, that you can point me to? I did not see anything online to scare me?
4. Does anyone know a good person to take it to in the Sacramento Area? (I know Camping world is close, but they seem expensive?) just curious if anyone has a reference of someone local they like.
My family is excited!! I have 2 young kids, so we hope to hit the campground, and go road trippen this summer!
I hope to use this fourm to get advise, as I'm sure I'll need it as things come up.
