You mean that beautiful avacado green? If you do then yes I have thos 70's inspirational colors. It matches the fridge we had when I was in grade school. Kinda like green pea baby food after it makes it's exit, wife says awe it's just retro and that's in.

Ahhhh... retro. It makes everything so... acceptable. Like the Brady Bunch flower design in the bath of our old '76.....

Those Were The Days

Could we get away with even calling it art deco?? That sounds even more fashionable.

Not quite sure what happened to color choices in the 1970's... I think it was a acid hangover from the 1960's. In 1975 my parents bought their first new car. It was a Volvo wagon and we picked it up from the factory in Sweden (We were stationed in Germany with the Army, so Sweden was right next door). I can clearly remember thinking what were they thinking when they chose that color. It was that green... green goddess, avacado, pea green, vomit green is how I discribed it. Fortunately paint technology was not the best in 1975 and by 1980 it had faded to a more fern color that was less visually offensive. Those colors are very retro now and some folks actually seek them out. You have to either like them, change them, or smoke a lot of grass and learn to dig the groovy vibe they produce. In 1962 the colors were soothing. My Overlander has a great blue in the bathroom, that has actually inspired some color changes in our house and the light pink Dometic is so soothing to me that I plan to have it matched as a wall color for Anna's main salon. Good luck with that green, Dude... By the way, got some photos you can lay on a brother?

I'm really glad someone here got this trailer. I was considering bidding on it but couldn't pull the trigger. Welcome.

Thanks, it's actually in pretty good shape for a 35 year old camper. If I want to It will easily sleep six kids and two adults, which was important for me as I have 3 kids and I figured they would like to bring a friend along sometimes. I am in the process of changing all the lights out and repairing the PO's "repairs" and then I plan on painting it with my Dad. I'm already having fun, that's for sure.

Welcome. I'm happy the Argosy was as good as you hoped it would be. It's always nice to see an Argosy go to a good home and be used. We just got back from Michigan, where we picked up our "new" Airstream. That's quite a drive isn't it? We went from Raleigh, NC, to St. Joseph, MI, to Oklahoma, in about two days. Now our Argosy has a playmate, a big playmate. The Argosy is easy to work on and if we can be of any help, please let us know. Congratulations.
