Argosy Minuet 7.3m

We are the proud new owners of a 1979 Airstream Argosy Minuet 7.3m! We towed him home last weekend and are feeling excited to give him some TLC and another round of family adventures. He has a front dinette / twin bed layout, with a bunk streetside, and all the beautiful 70s flowered "wallpaper" I can handle in the bathroom! We look forward to being a part of this community. And just in case he sees this post, special thanks to Doug, my Argosy Yoda, who helped me inspect via Skype and who has been so kind and informative in our initial learning process!

If you click on the grey Forums tab at the top left, you will get this page:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/

. . . which gives a fairly good overview of the landscape here.

Scroll down this page to the Airstream Knowledgebase section, then look under the Airstream Trailer Forums heading, one of the first sub-forums listed is Argosy Trailers:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f230/

All Argosy Trailers: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f227/

. . . where you can start a New Topic etc..



PS -- This process is similar to looking at the Table of Contents of a traditional reference book [remember those things called books? ], which often was fairly detailed, and could be used to find a topic of interest. Similarly, in the old days, the index at the end of most reference books included a fairly detailed alphabetical index -- another good tool for mining the book's information.
