new to forums - argosy 26

Hi all

So now I have so much to do, I dont know where to stat. I want to fix the in dash AC by summer, redo the back into a queen bed, replace the thermostat in the frige ,repair the gas gauge ,replace the floor covering, new curtins, seat covers, and on and on.wish me luck.Hope 'you' have lots of advice for me I will need it.

Welcome to the forums! This is the place to find all things Airstream! I suggest looking at the top blue toolbar and try out the search button for Argosy and maybe the topic you are interested in, such as "bed", etc. Argosy's have a little different construction than the "standard" aluminum Airstream, I believe the entire interior walls are fiberglass... but I am no expert!

Anyway, welcome and enjoy your new toy!

Hi Bibbs,
I'm afraid I can't offer much in the way of Argosy advice. I did want to welcome you to the forums. I know there are lots of people here to answer your questions.
Dave

Way to go Bibbs! Nice ride! Just like when you buy a cell phone, when you buy an Airstream you get "The Network". If you have a repair issue someone here has already fixed that problem or upgraded that item and is anxious to share their expertise. I hope that you get to enjoy camping soon. GOOD LUCK!

Steve
