I am penny poor and doing things on a move in and fix as I live budget so can't afford to be buying from the MAN. But I do want to fix things right and hope there is some nice people who can help. Any and all info is appreciated and gratefully accepted. I know there is a lot of work to do but this is my home now and I'm just going to dive in. Thanks in advance.
I am going by the title of your thread rather than the icon in your profile that you are referring to an Argosy 28 travel trailer. You might find a vendor on E-Bay who offers a 1975 Airstream travel trailer service manual for a price less than the hardcopy offered by Airstream . . . I haven't checked recently, but at one time, he offered a rather large selection of Airstream manuals on CD/DVD.
Another option if you just need basic information about appliance maintenance, running gear maintenance, etc., would be to check your local library for some of the following references . . . most have been published in multiple editions . . . and at least two of them had editions published in the same era as when our Argosy travel trailer were new:
There are others out there, but the above are some of the possibilities. These titles are often found in public libraries so you might be able to check-one out for guidance when an issue arises. If you are located near a college or university, you would almost certainly find several of these titles as well as some others of similar nature.
Good luck with your coach!
