My wife and I have recently purchased a 76/77 Arogsy 26. We purchased the trailer before realizing how much info there is on the this site, oh well..
We have both worked for custom boat builders in Maine, cruised extensively from Canada to the Carib and thought this was the next thing to try and to see what is on land. Hopefully we will not have to be as concerned about weather windows.
The 26 appears to be in good shape, although I have removed the reefer, and replaced the wheel bearings and shocks. There is a leak around the door, which in the rain storm we are having today, is very obvious.
We have decided to try this unit out for a couple of days in May and see what is required to go long distances.
Having no experience in Travel Trailers, we started our search looking at everything new. And then one day I saw , this Argosy for sale, looked at it in single digit temps, crawled under it in the snow, made the offer and brought it home. We both love the looks, so much nicer than the new boxes on the market.
We have many questions, which I think can be answered in the forums; what I can't find, I will ask for help. Too bad boaters don't try this approach. We don't have a digital camera (or any camera) but I will try and borrow one from my daughter and send some photos.
