Hi, I've been lurking since June when we bought our 74 Argosy 26. I just tore out the carpet and the vinyl and found a baseball sized home in the single near the door. I'll be fixing that and then putting down LVP soon. My wife is working on cleaning, disinfecting and recovering the beds and couches. Our unit appears top be mostly original but the exterior paint is in bad shape and the plumbing has been disconnected. Allegedly ours was garaged for the last 10 years and only used about 14 days a year during that decade. I'm sure I'll be asking some suggestions in the days ahead. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum. It's great to have you with us. It's a great place to learn and share.

Do you have any pictures (we always need pictures)?

Wishing success and happiness with your project!

Welcome from Colorado from a guy who grew up in Des Moines. And welcome to the vintage Airstream, er Argosy hobby. There is a bunch of fixing needed on these old trailers. You will find a lot of information here from fellow Argosy owners.

Congratulations! Just saw this video and thought I would share. I believe they did vids on the whole restoration.
