I don’t think you can look at buying and selling an Argosy as an investment. I know Shoeless Joe put a lot of time and money in to this Argosy and probably didn’t recoup all of it. I have seen people asking upwards of $10,000 for an Argosy and we purchased ours for $4,000 (Cdn), so $3,000 U.S. It was almost pristine in condition. We had to get new tires, but not much has changed. We didn’t have too, but we repainted it for around $4,000 and I replaced the shag carpet with a new vinyl wood planking, $300.
This is a good time to sell trailers and RV’s now with the COVID thing. People are buying them up in droves these days.
