Argosy Recording Studio

I have purchased a gutted 1976 Argosy 26 or 28' and I am not sure how to determine the actual length. I am a songwriter and a recording artist. I plan on using the Argosy as a recording Studio because our house is tiny. I would like to find information on soundproofing, attaching partitions, insulation, what fasteners to use, and whether I could strip the exterior paint. Any leads would be appreciated.

Roman-In the same boat. Taking on our grand child soon, losing the bedroom which has been my recording cave, among other things. Just cam into a 76 28' as well. Must begin the take out part of getting it to function. Will be interested to see what your approach is too! All my best, good luck!

Howdy and welcome to, your source of information supply on how to convert your TT (travel trailer) into a sound studio!

FYI: The length is whatever bumper to bumper is.

Now how about some photos...?

I am a little further along than you, converting a '58 26 foot Overlander to a recording studio. But ours will be installed inside a new building so it does not need to end up roadworthy. See my thread:

And you should google Rockhopper, a studio in England with a '63 Airstream made into a sweet recording studio.

Good luck!
