It is an argosy. I can tell that much. The placement of the windows and ornaments looks a lot like our 76 - 24 footer.

Yup, looks like an Avion to me.

The Argosy name is not there......front windows don't look quite right, not wrap around, but the rest of it looks like an Argosy....... or some kind of painted Airstream? strange.

We must be looking at two different trailers. Early, or maybe all, Argosies had non-tinted wrap around front windows. It is hard to tell in those photos because of the lighting, but they look like they wrap around and blend into the sides to me. Definitely an Argosy if you ask me.

It is a pre-1974 Argosy based on the paint scheme and the tail lights. OEM for all Argosy trailers included non-tinted deep-wrap wing windows -- but today, only the solar gray tinted deep-wrap wing windows are available as replacements from Airstream.

Northbound on Route 16 in NH

I passed a late model A/S about 3:45 this afternoon, near exit 16 in Rochester,N.H. I'd guess about 23', pulled by a black pickup. I winked - but it was raining and the traffic was heavy and fast so they were gone before I could take in any more details. Nice looking trailer!

Brannan Island State Park, CA

I saw 3 AS at Brannan Island State park east of San Francisco on Saturday the 20th. One was a small Bambi that was staying in another local, the other 2 were midsized (I couldn't tell for sure as there was a berm and I could just see the tops. They were in the hookup area and I had been dry camping.

Our 76 looks just like that one...small orange stripe on the side, square light panel on the back, wrap around windows in front (ours has after market tint on them).

We're one night from getting back to Omaha on a 3 week trip to Southeastern Utah (Arches and Canyonlands). We traveled across Colorado on HWY 50 on the way out and HWY 160 (with stops in Mesa Verde and Great Sand Dunes National Parks) coming home and as of today, we have seen 34, mostly in Colorado and Utah.

On Tuesday I saw a great looking newer model Airstream heading toward Barren River Lake in Glasgow Ky. I could see some red numbers but couldn't make them out. I'll bet he had a great week.
