First trip in 1973 Argosy

We finally got to go on our Maiden Vouage. Went to Perdido Key, Florida. Stayed across from the beach at Playa Del Rio RV park. It was on the Old River & the beach was a short walk across the street. Great place! We were able to fish on the river & caught enough for dinner almost every night. The staff was amazing.
We were so glad that after all the hard work & $$ we have invested in the Argosy, everything worked like a charm! No problems this trip! Can't wait for the second trip & all those to follow.
Special thanks to all of you for your valuable info on restoration. We could not have done it without you!
Hope to meet some of you down the road!

Wonderfully sharp-looking Argosy! I love the matching awning and banana wrap (and chairs!)

Somehow I managed to miss your posts about this until now, I think.

For rock guards for the windows, I recommend the route that I've taken after seeing what SmokelessJoe and others did with theirs. We're using removable flexible protectors of Sunbrella canvas with high-density foam in the middle, fastened on with Common Sense fasteners for marine applications. Mine may even be the same color as yours, it's hard to tell with different cameras and backgrounds.

Advantages are that they preserve the ability to see through our '70s trailers in the rear-view mirror (the smoke-tint 3-piece guard wouldn't show you much) and that they're quickly and easily removable to let light in when using the trailer.

We did make our Window covers, similar to Smokeless Joes.(Wow, what a Rig). We used white vinyl with 4 layers of foam tucked inside with the Twist locks. Wouldn't leave home without them. Just didn't have a picture of them.
