Help with AS near Las Cruces NM/El Paso TX

So... I have been working on my 1972 26' Argosy for a couple of years, and I need help with the rear end of it. It has taken me awhile because I work full time,and it's been a dream of mine for many years to do a restoration on one of these.

Here's what has been done so far:

*lower panels on front half of trailer removed

*sub floor replaced from the kitchen forward. The rest of the plywood was in great shape with the exception of near the baggage doors. Those areas have been patched with new plywood, and the doors received new gaskets.

*new insulation in open walls and floors (rock wool in floor)

*used the screws recommended by VTS and other forum members for securing the flooring if one is not removing belly pan to do the elevator bolts. Elevator bolts were removed due to the rotted wood.

*replaced lower wall panels

*removed both rotted kitchen counters

*replaced exterior refrigerator vent to stop leak that caused rot.

*used Parr Bond to seal exterior rivets and around front windows

*removed damaged tail light section and replaced with LED tail lights

To be done this summer:

*new axles from Colin Hyde

*Figure out the outrigger problem

*pro exterior paint job (someone owes me a favor


The bathroom floor is in GREAT shape.. looks like new plywood, EXCEPT the floor by the baggage door under the mid bed. The plywood was rotted and extended a bit under the wall where the tub is located. I needed to get on the road, so I did a temporary plywood patch in that area. But now I want to remove the wall and the shower to do it right. Also, in the same area, an outrigger has worn a 1 inch slit into the outer shell. I was wondering if there was anyone in my part of the country who could help me look over this situation and advise. I know lots of great repair people, and if I tell them what to do, they can do it. It's just that they don't know these trailers. Anyone out there in Southern New Mexico or El Paso, TX?
