Welcome to the world of Vintage Argosy ownership!

I am looking for the awning type that I think is made with an aluminum frame that lowers over the windows when towing and raises up when camped. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks - Carol
What you are looking for is commonly referred to as a rock guard, and assuming that your Argosy 24 is not an early Argosy Minuet 7.3 Metre, your coach will need the same three-piece rock guard utilized by the pre-wide-body Airstreams. Any Airstream dealer or Airstream Service Center should be able to order one for you. If your coach happens to be a Minuet 7.3 Metre, the same part will be needed, only the center section will need to be narrowed by about 8" to reflect the reduction of width found in the Minuets (the Minuets have a floor width of 7' while the Argosy standard series coaches have a floor width of 7' 8"). The rock guard was one of my first additions after purchasing my Minuet about three years ago.
Good luck with your coach!
