Our Argosys are like Airstreams in that only one manufacturer produces new awnings with arms that have the correct curvature for our coaches. That manufacturer is ZipDee. The good news is that ZipDee is a company that supports their products no matter the age -- I had no qualms about putting ZipDees (patio and window awnings) on my Overlander and will do the same for my Minuet once it is painted.

Good luck with your Argosy 26.

Zip Dee's are the ones you see most on Airstreams. I also like the A & E (Dometic) awnings also. I've had both. The Zip Dee is a heavier material and typically a little more costly. I liked both types.

Camping World sells and installs the A & E Awnings. Don't know if there is one near you or not. You can also search the Zip Dee and Dometic web sites to find a dealer near you.
