Make Argosy
Model Argosy 20
Length 20'
1972 Argosy Argosy 20
Overview Bought her from forums member RichardT. She needed a lot of work, but she's worth it.
New paint (color scheme uses the same colors as our tow vehicle), new awning fabric, new tail lights. Original wheels were shot (cracked rims), these were replaced with white "wagon wheels".

Trailer OK externally when we bought it, but pretty rough inside. Since it's a small trailer, we thought it would be fun to go with a tropical theme.

Still a work in progress...

Systems and Running Gear
Refinished bathroom sink, shower pan, and shower console; new plumbing fixtures; new Dometic fridge; new Magic Chef range (22" instead of stock 16"); new 16K BTU Suburban furnace; new double bowl SS kitchen sink; new kitchen cabinets & countertop; new vinyl flooring; new drawers under both gauchos

Tow Vehicle
1972 Argosy Argosy 20 Tow Vehicle
