Argosy Door window in

Hi Folks,
I wanted a window in my 1973 Argosy because I felt trapped in it without a view. Found a door at RV.revive.net and received it a few days ago. Not wanting to waste the time i got it in and here are the Pics. Thanks Boatdoc

Mom used to say, "Whenever there's a need, there will be a supply." Good going. Glad that you are mending.
Neil.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Hi Splitrock;
I have tracked a partially busted door at R.V. Revive in Waterloo IA. The door may have been repairable but since mine was perfectly tweaked in and well insulated, I have asked Ryan to cut the top half off, crate it and ship it to me. Ryan had to brave a local snow storm but he got it to me within expected time frame. So, I got the whole thing with internal shade for $375.00 shipping and rivets included. It took some time to get it out and clean it. I had to build a tubular guide for the heads of the rivets so that I could center punch them well. Slipping drill bit can make a number on the frame. The only real issue I had was with the inner plastic frame for the shade. It was all warped from the heat. Using 1" X 1/4" aluminum flat stock I have welded a U shape frame. This frame then pinched the plastic between aluminum frame and inside of the outer skin making it for a secure installation. Today, being very warm we will make an attempt to install the door back on the trailer. Thanks, "Boatdoc"

P.S. Lewster, Thanks for great suggestion.

Awesome! I've had a friend in Waterloo since 1981. Nice people down there. Food is good too. There's big rolling hills going in there. I used to roll my International gas daycab in there and aggravate the locals on those hills:-)

Thanks for the reply.

Gary

We have a '75 Argosy and are renovating it currently and we too think that not having a window will make us feel a bit closed in. The site you mentioned is not active any longer. Do you know if most of the 70's Airstream doors would work on the Argosy. What year/model door did yours come from?
