Argosy 26 project
I had previously posted this inquiry a couple of months ago in the Argosy trailer forum and recieved zero responses so I figured I would post it here and hope for a better result. I am adding a couple of more questions to my origonal post. This forum contains so much valuable information and and insight and thanks in advance to any that respond to my inquiries.
I recently aquired a 1976 Argosy 26 from my parents that they had purchased secondhand in 1978. Funny thing is they had offered it to me about 5 years ago and I turned them down and bought a newer SOB trailer. My brother instead took (neglected) it and did not do much with it. He had to move out of state for his job and asked me to sell it for him. I had not seen it in a few years and I was showing it to a prospective buyer when I remembered how cool this thing is. I guess I am getting old and nostalgic. Long story short, I am in deep.
Anyway, to the question at hand. The air conditioning unit on this trailer is origonal and broken. I would like to remove it in favor of a Fantastic fan. I am seeing that they are offered in both flat and curved versions for the interior trim. The Armstrong unit looks to be curved on the ceiling but I recall a previous post stating the curved version was not correct. To further confuse matters, the forward vent area appears to almost flat compared to the rear one. Any insight or suggestions are appreciated.
Secondly , I found a few soft spots in the wood flooring and have taken up a section. What I found was on top 1/2 inch plywood , next a thin layer of aluminum followed by a layer of insulation. I have been lurking the forums on floor replacement and have not seen much mention of the aluminum being put in when rebuilding the floor. Is it needed ?? Was this an Argosy experiment that was later dropped ? Also any advice on insulation to put back in the floor area. Mine was pretty nasty and wound up trashing it all. I will attatch some pictures at a later date. This thing is pretty much origonal . Avacado green counters , herculon gaucho cover all stock appliances and even a Univolt that humms but does not put out any power !!
