Hello from Ontario

I just purchased a 79 30' Argosy for a great deal, it's rough and needs floors but for the price couldn't pass on it. It will be a project for sure, looking to learn lots before I dive into it!
Thanks for the great info on here.

Greetings from Colorado and welcome to the vintage Airstream hobby going down the Argosy road. I read the Argosy was a unique Airstream trailer, maybe more of a "prototype" trailer where Airstream would try new designs and see how the market reacted. Steel end caps and full body paint was one of those ideas.

Check out the Argosy section in the Forums Knowledge Base close to the bottom of the Forums page. You can study all kinds of information about these unique trailers.

I parked next to a beautifully renovated Argosy at the last vintage Airstream rally I attended. These folks have sure done a lot to their Argosy and it shows.
