Just joined the Airstream Forum. We purchased a 1975 Argosy that was in really good condition about 2 years ago. So far we have made new covers for the dinette cushions (old ones were burnt orange) and new curtains (old curtains were rotting). We are still working on new covers for the couch. Eventually we will get rid of the burnt orange shag carpet, and replace with new flooring. We'll also paint the outside since the original paint was chipping and someone painted over it with a brush. Our whole family enjoys camping with our new (used) trailer.

Welcome to the Forums. You'll soon feel right at home here. Lots of friendly folks with great advice and helpful assistance.

Hopefully you'll at least use a roller when you repaint your Argosy.

Welcome to the forums. Do you need suggestions for a color when you re-paint?
