Hi Tim,

The chart I have shows the dry weight at 3305 lbs with a tongue weight of 410 lbs and a length, tongue to bumper of 19.5 feet.

Hope this helps!

Steve

It is fairly straightforward to figure out the brake system. First point will be the state of your umbilical and whether it has been updated to be compatible with modern 7-pin electrical connectors on tow vehicles. One wire is given to the brake function.

You will need a brake controller in your tow vehicle. Once you have that and your umbilical connection done right, you can place a magnetic compass near the axle on the inside of each brake assembly -- have somebody depress the brake pedal. You should see some swing of the needle from activation of the magnets.

All states require functioning breakaway brakes on any trailer over 1500-2000 pounds. New breakaway switches are widely available but most importantly you will need a functioning battery onboard to make this happen. Learn about the ancient 'Univolt' and much better voltage convertors available today. BTW -- don't test a breakaway while the umbilical is plugged into the tow vehicle -- that tends to fry brake controllers, especially the Tekonsha Prodigy.

Sweet.........wish mine was in that good of shape.
But hopefully it will be close someday. Right now I'm just hoping for a mild winter so I can keep working on it.
This forum is gonna be waaaaaaay helpful as I go along on it.
I've already got lots of ideas from it.
It's kind of cool that there was nothing original on the inside of it too. (well it was original in the fact that it looked like a tornado tore thru a lumber yard)
But with all the original stuff gone I'm not tied to a "restoration" of it. I can make it how I want without the guilt of destroying something "original".
It's just my opinion but, "original" was not comfortable.
Now I just have to figure out how to put a bed and 2 La-z-boys in it!!!!
Do they make a lightweight Barcolounger????????
Thanks for all the input guys!!!!!!!!
Tim

ps......maybe someday winterizing it won't involve plastic and duct tape!!!

Sounds like yours is alot further along than mine. I have no interior in mine as of yet. This forum has been a great thing for me as well. Love that search function. Thanks for the help offer and I will take you up on it as this project goes along. Is yours all original??
Tim

Tim,
On my old 64GT, it was located under the front window behind the gaucho. Same for the pump..Clue is..look for your fresh water intake.

Where is that chart? I have a 75 Argosy 24ft and would like the actual dry weight. The seller says 5000lbs and I won't to see if he is right. Thanks.

The chart ussed to be at the airstream sight, but it is no longer there. I have a copy at home and will post it later. My 75 25' Tradewind has a dry weight of 4200 pounds, but is around 5000 going down the road. I think your 5000 lb number is high for a dry weight, but close for a real weight.
