New Argosy owner ..

Greetings NW Tradewins!

Welcome to the Forums and the world of First Generation Argosy ownership!

I am sure that you will find your Argosy 24 to be a very versatile travel trailer. There are many fans of the 24' to 26' coaches as they seem to be a near ideal compromise between size and towability.

As you live with your Argosy, you will become familiar with its many endearing traits. The first that most new owners notice are the Panoramic Windows in the front of the coach. These windows are still used on today's Airstream with the only difference being that they are Solar Gray Trinted rather than clear glass in our Argosys. Those clear glass deep-wrap wing windows are no longer available as new replacements with the only alternative being the tinted versions used on current Airstreams. Many first generation Argosy owners, including myself, have protected our clear Panoramic Windows with an Airstream three-piece rockguard or heavy-duty padded fabric covers to protect our original clear windows from damage caused by flying road debris . . . either method typically costs less than just one replacement deep-wrap wing window. I just thought that I might mention this as it is something that many new Vintage Argosy owners aren't aware.

Good luck with your Argosy!


OOPS! Please disregard my information about the Panoramic Windows . . . I now understand that you have a 24-Foot Motorhome rather than a trailer so Panoramic Windows in the front do not apply to the Motorhome.

Welcome to the Airstream/Argosy Moho world. I can assure you it will be quite a ride. I see you are close by so if you need anything or want to play just yell.

Kevin, he may not have the Panoramic Windows but I can assure you his "front windows" don't come cheap.
Cheers, Dan
