Yet Another New Guy Here

Hi Everyone,
I have been living year round in campers for 20 years. I have wanted an airstream since I was a kid. I always loved the appearance and uniqueness of they have. This year I finally have a airstream (I'm 51 yo). I got a really great deal from a family member for a partially refurbished 1975 argosy. It worked out perfectly for me because I wanted to do the inside my way. I'm using it now and remodeling as I go along. I'm happy to be here and happy to be a owner of a vintage airstream .

Marion N.C.

Welcome! Would you please post some pictures of your Argosy? Those of us not currently working on a restoration always enjoy living vicariously through others. Good luck on your project!

Thanks! I'll be happy to snap some photos and post them. I've already made quite a few changes but remodeling is still ongoing with plenty more to do. The trailer is in good condition but not perfect by any means .

Thanks moosetags. I've have been reading here for a few weeks actually and decided it was time to register. These forums have answered most of my questions thus far. I hope I can help others as well with the experience I am getting.

I'll try and get some photos done very soon. I am hard after the project as I am residing in it already. Things are moving along pretty quickly. I'll just say it's a week on it. It had bare plywood floors, the walls and ceiling were all painted white and the plumbing was not finished. I've already done quite a bit of remodeling so photos will not be from start to finish, probably about halfway through now. LOL .. there should be a remodeling topic!
