Greetings from Canada!
I just purchased my first trailer this week, a 1977 Argosy, 24', rear door, twin bed model. I'm a total novice and am still holding my breathe until the closest Airstream Dealership service department has a look at it for a systems/safety check in the first 2 weeks of September. Trailer looks fairly original, less the outer paint job, a new water pump, a plumbing piece in the storage closet next to the oven, converter, carpet, and tires. Interior decor and appliances are all original and in good condition as far as I know with the exception of the furnace "that only needs a gasket". It stunk like moth balls so I have no idea if there is any mold buildup in the floors. I am the 3rd owner and am not handy - yet! It was a happy 50th Birthday gift from me to me. I hope to park it up in Norther Ontario for the summer next season (will need a dependable furnace) and I hope I don't go broke fixing what an untrained lady eye missed! I would appreciate any advice, resources, books etc you can recommend. Best Regards, Sandra

Purchased my first ever trailer August 20/14. My profile photo shows me shaking hands with the previous/second owner of my 1977-24'. A happy day, with more to come! Looking forward to the members here on the forum helping me through the lifestyle changes and repairs along the way.

How did this work out for you? We are very interested in a 1974 22' Argosy with "back door layout" but it's a long way from us - CA to FL. Any major issues with yours?
