Greetings all. Long time lurker, new Airstream owner as of yesterday.
Yesterday I brought home a 1978 Argosy 24 that I spotted on Craigslist in West Michigan.
My wife and I bought a 'Craigslist Special' TT last fall and enjoyed camping in it with our 2 young children, but the thing (I call dreadnought) was too large for my TV and was meant to be a low-cost 'experiment'.
Just before we went on a 8 day camping trip on the lakeshore, we spotted the Argosy ad and paid a deposit on it on our way to the campground.
We are THRILLED to finally be in the classic Airstream community and look forward to getting (the yet unnamed trailer) up to snuff for our needs.
So far I managed to get the Furnace, Fridge, Pumps, and Hot Water heater working.
The stuff that is on the list are (not in any particular order)
1: New power converter. The univolt is not there.
2: Replace potty. Was not used much, seals bad.
3: Reconnect shower hoses (pipes were changed to colored PEX, but shower was not finished)
4:Repair shower floor
5:Shades / curtains
6: Fix seal issue on water pump
7: Replace any external seals before winter!!!
8: Need window road protectors
We do a combination of boondocking and powered camping and I really look forward to a great future together!
