1975 Argosy 22 Rear Door

New Canadian Argosy owner

Located just west of Edmonton,Alberta.
I just agreed to purchase a 1975 22' rear door Argosy. Its in really good shape(one family owned. father-son). I only paid a $1,000.00 for it, so at the very worst it will be a learning experience reno'ing it.
I had to get something bigger for the family as the slide in camper just didnt cut it anymore(1 toddler, 2 big dogs, and my wife, and I)
I'm hoping that my 06 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 megacab will tow it.

Looking forward to the wealth of knowledge on this board.

Welcome from Roblin in the Parkland Region of Manitoba. Sounds as if you negotiated a swell deal on the Argosy.
You should do fine with your Dodge Ram.
It's only a few more sleeps before you can hook up and enjoy. We just got another large dump of snow and look forward to some green grass one of these days.
Take care,

Great move getting the Argosy. They are light and easy to tow. You should have no trouble. I have a 24ft, with way too much "stuff" in it and have pulled it with my Tundra for a couple of years with no problems. Post the pictures when you go to pick it up. It's 80 degrees here and Spring camping weather.

Good day Alberta. That rear door 22 is a great open concept lay out. We looked a t a number of them when we were shopping and came close to getting one. Enjoy!

I'm rural Stony Plain. Straight down hwy 770 by the N. SK river.
I'll be waiting to pick mine up as well. Still a fair amount of snow in front of the trailer. It was only a deal because it was parked at my friends acreage for the past 3 years and hasnt moved. So he called the owner and he has lost interest in it(it was his fathers). He knows he pretty much gave it away.
I'm also planning on some major reno's. Full paint job, flooring, upholstry, wiring. Hopefully the floor, axles, and plumbing are good. Otherwise the neighbors are all willing to come over and help for beers(which can be expensive)
I'll post pics up soon
