1979 Airstream Argosy Minuet 7.3m - North Carolina

Title: 1979 Airstream Argosy Minuet 7.3m - North Carolina
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

1979 Argosy Minuet 7.3

We hate to sell our Argosy, but we just don’t use it as much as we should and we’re ready to find her a new home. We've owned it since 2011 and have used it about twice per year since.

Our Argosy sleeps four; two on forward dinette and two in the pull-out bedroom area. Full kitchen plus bath with shower plus tons of storage for gear and clothing. It’s got a few things that need to be addressed, but in general it’s ready for camping, glamping or turn it into a “tiny house!”

This charming vintage trailer is in good shape and has been updated inside with period-appropriate 1970s colors and modern Sunbrella outdoor fabrics for easy care. Custom curtains are lined for privacy and sun protection. Flooring is new –*installed by Airstream dealer. We have replaced the two accordion doors –*one between kitchen and bedroom and one on the lav.

We have not used the oven but the burner elements work great. We haven’t used the gas feature of the refrigerator, but the electric mode works.*We also haven’t used the fresh water tank nor the electric pump associated with it.* The furnace and water heater work, as does the air conditioning.

The exterior has small areas of rust which I have treated and spot painted, and the body has some dings/dents -- those were present when we purchased it.*The lavatory needs help, as the original sink cracked and has a temporary – but usable – fiberglass bar sink. The water lines in the lavatory have a small leak -- will be happy to elaborate.*It also has a new skid-pan under the grey / black water tanks.

Door handle is serviceable but is slightly bent. *Have never used the fresh water tank / electric pump -- suspect it has cracks and will leak if filled.**Have never used oven to cook and I suspect it's inoperative. Fridge works on electricity -- have not tried to make it work with the gas controls. The original lavatory sink cracked, so we replacedi with a fiberglass bar sink and countertop; lav has a new but temporary sink / faucet which works but is not hard-installed yet. Lavatory has a leak under sink, which can be managed. *Had new brakes and bearings installed when we took ownership. All lights / electrical outlets work but the exterior lights are finicky and work but need more capable maintenance.

Trailer tows very nicely without sway bars installed and I've never had any issues.

We will be happy to include: Spare tire, ramps, portable/towable dump tank, and some other accessories.
